 Today's puzzle has some rather interesting moves available immediately following the standard easy stuff - of which there is but little! I should have a blog page up and running regarding at least the beginning of today's puzzle shortly. A link to the new blog page will appear at the top of the right column of this page, directly under "Check out the Sudoku Blog". 01/Jul/10 12:19 AM |  |

 time for Steve, rwm, sotir to lock and load.I'll be surprised if it takes less than seven gnarly steps. 01/Jul/10 1:37 AM |  |

 There is a backdoor of a5=4 in this puzzle (basic techniques only after that to UP=81) - but I can find no exclusions to justify this. Best regards, Neil 01/Jul/10 4:15 PM |  |
 Hmm. The only dent in the armor of this problem I can make (after basic UP 27) is the following. The 6 of the top left box goes into either c8 or b9.The two options share as a common quick consequence d5=2. The logic goes thusly: If c8=6, then b4=g6=6, h6=g2=f5=1, so d5=2.

 A slight change from the path I blogged in the last step: AAIC's used in steps 4,5,6.1) Start 22 UP 26 LC(9)ab2 => g2<>9; NT(126)def5 => ai5,f6,ef4<>126UP 272) (83=1)hi6 - g6 = g2 - f2 = HP(16-62)f59 = FSF(2)cfi237i9- (2)g7 = (389)g78h8 => g46i89<>8, h9<>3; More... 01/Jul/10 10:14 PM |  |

 Horrendously –possibly illegally –long -gnarly? -first step, but it does it (I think?): 1. STs to 27. 2. G6=6 or ghi6=138. If ghi6=138, i5=4, f6=5, g4=c6=e8=f5=6, f2=h1=1, h6=3, h3=4, d8=1, d5=e1=2, h8=9, e2=4, a2=9, a8=c4=4, b4=5, b2=3, g2=2, and there are no 2s in row 7.So More... 02/Jul/10 2:49 PM |  |
 Alfred has pointed out a mistake, so, although the first step may be invalidly long, I may as well make it technically correct: After e1=2, I should have included f3=8 & a1=8, which is needed to force the a8=4. Regards to all. It's nice to see all the new and old names. 02/Jul/10 11:01 PM |  |
 sotir: it takes about 4 more kraken. no short path exists outside of Steve's proprietary methods. 05/Jul/10 8:44 AM |  |
