- This one might be a Mard. Who knows, maybe it's an Easium? I've had conflicting reports. Would you expect anything less than wildly divergent opinions of the puzzle's difficulty from my test-solvers? Yeah, I thought so.
- The Chronicle of Higher Education website can't decide when to post the puzzles. So, why not do my puzzle scheduled for Friday today? [Java] [Across Lite]
- Trip Payne alerted me to this great on-line game/tie-in thingy with the BBC Four game show "Only Connect." I'd never heard of it. And, yeah, it's no "Countdown," which I admit I've played along with semi-religiously when I'm over there. But damn these "Only Connect" puzzles are entertaining and frigging hard. All ya gotta do is match up the four sets of four from the board of 16, then name the categories. Go figure: the first wall I successfully sovled was #5, and the first category I got right was not the one built around something very American, but the one built around the something very British. Thanks, Liz!
Share the puzzle. New one on Friday.Update: Guess I liked this theme so much I had to repeat it. What do they say? When you copy yourself it's a style?
