Hey Patrick, how are you? I was wondering whether we could eventually earn achievements for solving the 21x21 and 25x25 puzzles. I understand if you'd rather not go through that hassle and I don't want you to feel rushed or pressured in any way if you (eventually) get around to it. Thanks and stay safe.

Good idea, thanks [thumbup]

And yes, I've been busy with work and an upcoming book (should arrive soon [woot] )

Decided to have a go at solving the 25x25 this weekend. With small cages, there’s nothing that tricky, but there are a lot of numbers to be filled in.

I went through it very carefully, not entering any values until I was sure they were correct. Or so I thought! With around 60% of the cells filled and pencil marks in most of the others, I discovered I had two 21s in the same column. [scared] [confused] [crying]

No idea where I went wrong, so I will need to start all over again! [cursing]

I had maybe 50% of the puzzle penciled in when the same thing happened to me.

Having received correctly the Calcudoku Newsletter 3, last revision, I do not understand well the note: "... the next page has a
25 × 25 puzzle to celebrate 25 million puzzles solved at calcudoku.org! The puzzle was created by long-time Calcudoku puzzler Fred Zalateu"
.

I was thinking that the puzzle has been developed by fzpowerman47...

Thank you very much, Fred, for the puzzle and for solving the mistery.
I have solved the puzzle but I would never have imagine such relationship (though the evidence fz.......... :-) :-) ).

My brain (supposing I have one, sometimes I doubt it because I frequently forget my head in the barber shop and have to return for it), Patrick, is not very bad for puzzles, but very slow for real life things :-).
