Meanwhile, I had an awful 5x5 today... over a minute and a half, barely in my top 1,250!

I had an awesome 4:12 with a couple of cells to go when I suddenly noticed I had 2 5's in the bottom row [cursing] and it took about 3:40 to figure out where everything had to be switched to solve.....how I wish these puzzles had the "correction indicator".....but then I'm sure the faster puzzlers would become even faster and I would REALLY be left behind!!!

I don't think it would make that much difference to the faster puzzlers, but it would certainly reduce the number of frustrating incidents that the likes of you and me suffer on a somewhat regular basis!

How true.......we can only persevere and keep [smile] .....after all it is only a game albeit somewhat frustrating at times and probably encourages us to try better!!

There were only 39 people who had completed the puzzles that particular day.
There always seem to be a lot of people who get a time in less than 7 minutes, so when some of the small group of slower people finish their puzzle in 6 minutes, the top 25 will automatically be around that 6 minutes.

I had my 8th fastest time today (3:47.739) and it's not good enough for a top ten finish. [scared] [cursing] [confused]

Actually, you got 25th place, while I got 11th. I hate being 11th. The only thing worse is being 26th!

I had to laugh when I saw your post as I didn't get what was so wrong with the 11th place and then it dawned on me and I see your point that #11 is as bad as #26.......however, in my case I would love to get a #11 all the time!!!!

Woo Hooo [thumbsup] a 5:04 tonight and ye old ticker was just a pounding with excitement!!!!

Now, what do you do when you add 7+1+2 and think it adds up to 11.....which I did and then spent 6 minutes trying to find my mistake......that's for tonight's puzzle.....a far cry from last night's.....(a 13:07) unreal [cursing]
