1) Start 23 UP 28 SSTS UP 29 SSTS
2) (1)g5 = (1-7)a5 = (7-2)a4 = (2)h4 => h4<>1; LC(1); UP 30
3) (3)f123 = [(8=3)g7 - f7 =* f4 - de6 = HP(36)gi6 - (12)g6 = NT(368)g679] - (8)g3 = (8-4)i3 = (4-1)a3 = (1)df3 - (1=3)e1 loop => d3<3, f1<>1, a3<>239, i3<>39; UP More...

Steve: I didn't realize something like:
(12)g6=NT(368)g679 (in your long step 3 inner chain) was kosher. Obviously valid now that I think about it. Also your isolated set (3)f7=(3)f4 in the inner chain is new to me (but this time not obvious - but again if the inner chain is not true/valid (what More...

Steve: I see it now - since the inner chain is valid as it stands when 3f7=3f4 that is the only pertinent way it could possibly be false as well.

Steve: isn't there a problem if (3)f1=(3)f4 is true - then both sides could be false and the reasoning incorrect??

if f7 contrives to make both false it fails ingloriously and one OR the other is still true - the light dawns!

farpointer:
At least one of (3)f12347 is true. I break that into three groups, as noted: f123,f4,f7.

If the inner chain is not "true", that can only happen if (3)f123 is true. In that case, since the macro chain is a continuous loop, all the stuff from the end of the chain is More...

Thanks for the pm. Hopefully you can find time to return here from time to time.

My compliments too, Steve, on a great solution. Here is my understanding of it, with a couple of questions:
Step 3): If e1=1,a4=1 and g5=1. When e1=3, both f7=3 or f4=3 leads to g5=1 ,and, also i3=8, making a3=4. So g5=1 and a3=14, creating a 124 triple in column a. On my grid,this already is More...

Thanks Alfred. Indeed, I thought that I had caught that typo...... but I did not! e4<>1 is the correct conclusion at that point. Sometimes, I may count the UPs differently, if I do not include the execution of perhaps a couple of easy type steps - this is an old bad habit of mine.

similar to but not the same notes as Steve's looped kraken.

continuing theme of reducing krakens:

3.{(1)a3=df3-(1=3)e1-f123=SS(3)f47eg6-(3=8)g7-g3=(8-4)i3=a3}

where SS means SkyScraper.
