Thanks everyone.

When Patrick first set up this site it didn't have user accounts and I discovered the site and started doing puzzles that interested me. Next he created user accounts, but it was a while before he got a rankings page up. When the rankings page first came up, to my surprise I was at the top of the list so I decided to do every puzzle every day to keep it up. I've kept at it for almost ten years now, with the occasional break, mostly for vacations without internet access.

I'm certainly not the fastest puzzler, and I've stopped doing book puzzles, so maybe clm will catch me in a few years.

Congratulations mparisi [thumbsup] [thumbsup]
Almost ten years in the first position and from the first day is really incredible !!!.

I do not think I will catch you unless you take a sabatic year or so, the actual distance (3,000 points) represents around 6 complete weeks or let's say 3 books (if you keep your actual intentions of not sending book solutions) :-) :-) :-) . But I am accustomed to my very comfortable second position [smile], it's a honor for me to be "in the podium" with you and with sjs34.

Congrats on reaching 250K! You've got a solid 180K or so on me, since I've got just shy of 69,800 points as I type this. Well done, mparisi!

clm, I am both pleased and embarrassed for you to note my being on the podium with you and mparisi. I see the two of you as awesome. I see myself as a dedicated plodder who likes Patrick's site well enough to stay interested.

mparisi, congratulations.
