Post Re: 8x8 timed
I seem to be getting slower and slower with the timed puzzles. I think it's a case of festina lente - the more I rush the more mistakes I make. I was very lucky to finish 25th in the 8x8 two days ago with a time of 6:4x.xx and today I was over 8 minutes because I had to redo a puzzle practically from scratch. [cursing]

While my times have been somewhat better, my luck is definitely not in this week on the 8x8 timed. In the last 3 days, I've finished 11th, 11th and 26th. [cursing]

Similar frustration for me yesterday on the 4x4s. I got my 5th best time ever in 4898 tries -- at 9.856 sec. It was good for 26th.

Almost relieved to be 28th today! Bad result, but better than 26th!, [biggrin]

I'm thinking my 3:07 will make the top 10 though.

Even if it's a bit on the slow side [tongue]

23+ minutes for the timed 8x8.....my times are getting "worser and worser" [cursing]

Just finished the 8x8 normal puzzle of today and got a 6m1s time......to bad I can not do that for the timed puzzles [mad]

Just finished 8x8 of today in 5m2s......not timed and hence no pressure---- no choking
