Post Feeling a bit frustrated!
Today, I did a time for the 6x6 that would have ranked 21st yesterday, but I’m already outside the top 25. And my final rankings in the 8x8 for the last two days have been 11th and 26th. Gah! [cursing]

Am too feeling a bit frustrated, as I usually get puzzle "solved" in 5-6 minutes but no green screen....which means no solution.....I then have to search all the numbers and values of cages and number sequences to see where I made mistake(s)......usually ends up with 2 3cell cages being changed......but takes me 10-12 minutes discover the correct solution [angry] .......guess I will have to slow up and forget trying to get into the 5 minute range.... [sad]

Another frustrating day today. Did my fastest ever time for the 5x5 and it wasn’t even good enough to get into the top 25.

Got some close scores to the top 25 yesterday. My fastest 4x4 speed by more than a second, though not good enough.

4x4: #26 10.053 sec, +0.030 sec from #25.
5x5: #27 34.816 sec, +1.179 sec from #25.

Today I got a record 1 min 0.595 sec for 6x6 (8 seconds faster than my second best). Should be good enough for a top 25.

Improving!
