Thanks for the new puzzles Patrick. I tried to submit y2009 just now and it's telling me that my solution appears to be incorrect. I've double checked everything and can't find any errors. Is it possible that the site has not yet been set up to accept these new puzzles?


First of all congratulations, Patrick, for the anniversary [thumbsup] [thumbsup], thank you, and for this booklet.

Ok, in my opinion, the puzzle "y2009" (it corresponds to year 2009, the beginning of the site so it can be understood :-) :-)) has not unique solution and that's probably the problem with the solution sent by paulv66. I suggest you revise cells d5-d6, f4-f5 and h4-h5-h6, it seems they admit swappings.


Thanks clm. That did the trick! [thumbsup]

It should be all set up, I'll check the logs and let you know.

edit: now reading the later post by clm, will look into that..

edit 2: I now "fixed" it by setting d5 to 10, and f4 to 2 (so these are already given in the puzzle,
the online PDFs have been updated).

I'm guessing it's a problem with the code that deals with very large cages (like the "1" and the "0" in the y2009 puzzle).

I'll double-check the last puzzle (y2018) as well..

edit 3: the booklet has been added to the "book history" page now

[*]Good point about becoming a subscriber..........and as an added note, I always donate extra when subscribing.......let's face it, this site IS awesome and does help to keep the older (and younger) users brains active plus we all get the satisfaction of solving these puzzles [thumbsup] Now if I could get the local newspaper to carry a couple of his puzzles in each issue.......but (6 years ago) they were not interested [cursing]
Nice cookies!!!

I think the one paper I'm still supplying puzzles to is the "Elizabethtown Advocate" (PA) [love]

I used to supply papers in the Netherlands too, but over the years the few puzzle companies
that remained have been bought by an international investment company, so they determine
the puzzles the public solves these days [glare]

I am guessing no deal was available for you to submit one of your books to them so they could choose what to use?

No, what these large companies want is contracts with as many papers / magazines / web sites as possible,
and then they supply a "mix of puzzles", all generated in-house.

(so there's no dependency on independent puzzle makers like me)

Congratulations on the 10-year anniversary for calcudoku.org! Here's to many, many more years of puzzling for all of us here and thanks for all of the great puzzles you supply each day, Patrick! As I write this, we've collectively solved 17,105,000 puzzles. You never know - we just might hit 20 million puzzles in 2019 as well!
