Post niet meer in de Volkskrant
(English translation below)

Vanaf vandaag staan mijn Calcudoku puzzels niet meer in de Volkskrant:
helaas zonder dat ik hierover was ingelicht [sad]

Eerder dit jaar is "Sanders puzzelboeken" overgenomen door "Keesing Media" (van oa. "Denksport"):
Ik heb begrepen dat zij hun eigen software hebben om Calcudoku's te maken,
dus ze hebben mij niet meer nodig.

De puzzels van vandaag zijn veel makkelijker dan mijn puzzels, maar goed,
zij zijn nu monopolist in Nederland en hoeven dus niet meer te concurreren..
(of misschien hebben Volkskrant lezers geklaagd dat de 6x6 "prijspuzzel" te moeilijk was).
(het is natuurlijk mogelijk dat men besloten heeft dat ze makkelijker moesten worden)

Het is jammer, het heeft me heel veel tijd en moeite gekost om de software hiervoor te bouwen.

----------------

Starting today, my Calcudoku puzzles no longer appear in the "Volkskrant" (a large Dutch national newspaper),
unfortunately without anyone informing me [sad]

Earlier this year "Sanders puzzelboeken" was bought by "Keesing Media" (publishers of "Denksport"):
I'm told that they have their own software to create Calcudoku's, so they don't need me anymore.

Today's puzzles are much easier than my puzzles, but alright, they now have a monopoly in the
Netherlands, so they don't have to compete anymore.
(or maybe Volkskrant readers complained that the 6x6 "prize puzzle" was too difficult).
(it is of course possible that they decided the puzzles should be simpler)

It's unfortunate, it took a lot of time and effort to build the software for this.
