Now that is really frustrating. I've had 4 near misses in the last two weeks (three 26th places and one 11th place), but that's nothing compared to the annoyance I would feel if something like that happened to me.

I should look into adding a "retry" button, so in a case like this you can fix you internet (or wait for it to come back on) and click "retry".

That would be a really nice feature, if it doesn't require too much work [woot] .
This happens at least two times a month, and I can imagine others having this minor, but quite annoying problem, too.

Just looking at yesterday's times and I can't help feeling that both the top 10 times and top 25 times must be new records. 10th place was 3:06.950 and 25th was 5:14.894. My time of 3:51.394 would normally be good enough for top 10, but yesterday was only 15th! [crying] What's happening? [scared]

Times are getting faster and faster. 10th place yesterday was 3:02.989 and 25th was 5:04.516. Looks like we’re heading towards sub 3 minutes being required for top 10 and sub 5 minutes for top 25. [scared]

That is counting me out.
I guess I will only earn participation points now.

Not sure what’s going on. Yesterday, 7:46 was good enough for top 25. Today, I solved the 8x8 in 5:12 and I’m already outside the top 25 with over 45 minutes to go. [scared]

It would appear that to be in top 25 for 8x8, you are going to have to submit a sub "5" soon and probably a sub 4:45 in the future......like eclipsegirl said, I will have to settle for the 4 points/day:)
