Thirteen years ago. Where'd the time go? I remember writing to Will that I I'd run out of theme ideas around the time these ran (hah). It's also worth noting that in a remarkable bit of symmetry, I will be dead exactly 13 years from today.
Now that we've tackled the past and the future, let's do today, shall we? A couple weeks back "Miracle" Matt Gaffney asked me to participate in a little experiment. His proposal was to see if he could make a puzzle after he was given a specific entry from a stranger. To complicate matters, that entry had to be used as a theme entry. Well, anyway, Matt asked if I would participate in that have-to-make-a-puzzle-with-a-specific-theme-entry-stipulation as well (probably to demonstrate how wide and varied puzzlemaking can be if constructors put their
drugs minds to it).
