Post 3-18-17 difficult killer
I observed that 175 people solved the killer, 6 star puzzle on the 17'th, but only 103 people solved the 5 star puzzle on the 18'th. I can only blame myself for not solving the killer on the 18'th, but it did catch me quit unaware. Knowing that the difficult killer was on the 17'th, I did not allow enough time on the 18'th . About 2 hours into the puzzle I observed that my time was running short. When I eliminated the last variable for the 25 total cage in the upper right corner, I discovered that I made a mistake and did not have time to backtrack. Time to walk away.

I know how you feel. I had a busy day yesterday and only finished the killer sudoku with about half an hour to spare. I then did the timed puzzles and ran out of time on the medium sudoku.
