 25 MILLION SOLVED
This happened a lot sooner than expected, quite the milestone [woot]

A special puzzle to mark the occasion is on its way, courtesy of fzpowerman47

edit: you can now get 25 points for the correct solution, use the puzzle code:

25mil

on the book solution submit page.

Cool! [thumbsup]
But wait, no code to submit?
Not that I've already solved it, of course I haven't. Just wondering.

I'll have to program an exception for this puzzle,
maybe I'll get to it.

(don't really want to extend the database tables just for this puzzle..)

But it wouldn’t be just for this puzzle, Patrick. There’s also the 21x21 puzzle that you produced to celebrate reaching 21212121 total puzzles!

Thanks, fzpowerman - I'm glad you liked my bitwise OR puzzle. Believe it or not, it was originally going to be a twin puzzle. Patrick revealed that my first grid had a single solution and that the other had 3 solutions. He offered to combine the two separate grids into a single puzzle with a single solution. Upon closer inspection, though, he warned that my puzzle would've been WAAAY too easy and the bitwise OR operator would've basically been a moot point. I therefore decided to just use the original single-solution grid. Having made my puzzle without a computer program, I had no idea how many solutions each individual grid had until I got my message from Patrick.
