25:55, hi all. It does get very, very cold on Lake Jindabyne, it's not far from the snow in winter and has claimed a couple of lives in the past - a swimmer died in the lake as recently as 10 months ago.

1)Start at 23,basic techniques to UP=31
2)(7):d5=d2-e3=g3,=>g5<>7
3)(2)d1=e3-g3=(2-1)g7=g5-b5=(1-5)b3=(5)b1,=>d1<> 5.UP=33
4)Loop:(5)b1=(5-1)b3=b5-g5=(1-2)g7=g3-(2=7)e3-(7=9)d2-df1=(9)b1,
=>b1=59,b3=15,ai5<& gt;1,g7=12,f2<>9
5)Kraken More...

a really complicated solution:

1. UP=32
2. (5)b1=(5-1)b3=(1)b5-(1)g5*=(18|2)i7-(2)i1=(2)d1. => d1<>5 UP=34.
*(1)g7-(1)i7 & (1)g7-(2=138)h8gh7-(8)i7.
3.loop (7):g3=e3-d2*=(98|4)b2-(4|61)a3=**(1)i6-(1=678)g459. => g7<>8, bc3a2<>4, i5<>1 More...

...have to find a way to clean up that notation, doesn't seem to directly translate into Krakanese as the chains are simply slotting in the derived links wherever needed (not stand-alone).

My go for today (forcing chains, not forbidding chains);
1) Basic techniques to UP=32.
2) (2=7)g3=>g5=1,UP=81.
2a)(2-7)g3=(7-1)h2=i2-i456=(1)g5.
||
2b)(7-2)g3=(2)i1-i7=(2-1)g7=(1)g5.
Best regards, Neil

Hi Neil. After 7 at g3,g5 becomes 1 with a short chain; but 2 at g3 actually creates a 1 at g7 after a very long chain.
Like that other time you had a short solution to an unyielding puzzle, be nice if it was that easy, (compare with cold fusion).

Regards, Alfred.

Alfred,

Thanks. You are quite correct - my logic is flawed.

Best regards, Neil
