 Above tree line? Pretty high! 02/Sep/09 12:12 AM |  |
 Beautiful, Wilodene! 02/Sep/09 12:15 AM |  |
 Enjoy your day/night, everyone! 02/Sep/09 1:07 AM |  |
 Oh!!! Just beautiful - I would like to have a small cabin beside the lake! Thank you, Wilodene! 02/Sep/09 2:56 AM |  |
 34 minutes Pretty! My first thought was Lake Louise, but thisis just as beautiful. 02/Sep/09 3:46 AM |  |
 1. Note triples 789 at ade6;136 at efi4.Unique possibilities to 35.2. Note triple 267 at g9/i89;pair 89 at h78.If c8=4,i8=7,b8=2,a9=3=h5=d1,e1=5,i4=1,i1=4 and column a is devoid of 4.So e8=4.UPs to 40. Here I thought I found a proof that g3=3, but it was a mistake.Maybe someone can take it from here. 02/Sep/09 4:13 PM |  |
 I shall eventually blog this one. 02/Sep/09 6:00 PM |  |
 Hi Alfred, in your step 2, has the possibility of (4)a2 been resolved? 02/Sep/09 6:16 PM |  |
 Rather than the usual very detailed blog post, for today's puzzle I choose a sparsely illustrated solution path. This of course saved me much time..... - is lazy a virtue? 02/Sep/09 6:33 PM |  |
 35:48, a bit slow today. Lovely photo! 02/Sep/09 7:49 PM |  |
 Hi Steve.a2 is not determined yet in step 2.Step 2. resolves e789 and h78. Regards,Alfred. 02/Sep/09 11:42 PM |  |
 Of course lazy is a virtue. If we weren't lazy we'd still be living in caves. 03/Sep/09 1:11 AM |  |
 Thanks Alfred, I think. What I meant, perhaps unclearly, is that from your forcing chain, I still have (4)a2 as a possibility. Thus, column a is not quite yet devoid of (4). Perhaps I missed something easy? 03/Sep/09 9:33 AM |  |
 Thanks for the blog, Steve. Wow. Brenda 04/Sep/09 1:23 AM |  |

 Steve's blog was great but I couldn't help wondering if the puzzle couldn't possibly be solved by more elementary means. Here’s the “lesser mortal” solution I’ve worked out with some help and polishing from Alfred (Thanks, Alfred!): Starting at 22, given UPs to 23 -- 1) More... 13/Oct/09 6:53 AM |  |
