 8.3*** (SE @ 3K x 20FC) not hard to find chains but, not easy to find short path, I finally lost patience nuked the beast with a kraken - surely others can do better.780012004091000000000007090840000002603000500000000070008506900000041000000270085 23/Oct/11 12:33 AM |  |

 8.5* (SE @ 6K x 11FC) posted because it is one of the rare 8.5's solveable entirely with patterns (outside of a depth 2 chain which is probably a pattern - certainly based on a simple pattern).400300500006070000010000040009000050340910008060008000000000430000080019002090600 23/Oct/11 3:41 AM |  |

 Almost snap Nick - 16:18. Fairly straight-forward this morning. 23/Oct/11 8:01 AM |  |
 Charlie and Emily could both be girls' names, and from the photo I assumed at first that both these people were females --- mother and daughter perhaps. If the person in the cap and gown is actually a male named Charlie, he ought to grow a moustache. What school and where? 23/Oct/11 8:41 AM |  |
 Your'e right Jyrki, UP56. 23/Oct/11 10:43 AM |  |
 for step #2 on the 8.4**** instead of "memory chain" aaic possible:(2)g7=[(12)gh4=XW(4)gh34-(4=*9)g7-SS(9)a75.cg6=(234)cef6] # -2g6amazing what a few pointless looking eliminations in the opening can accomplish - that puzzle mis-labelled @ ****; didn't take a careful look yesterday. 23/Oct/11 11:30 AM |  |
 1. (8.4*) Note g68=34.Unique possibilities to 38.2. If d9=3,d45=69,a9=2,a7=8=d2,g7=9,e7=5=g2=f1;the bottom middle box is devoid of 6.So d9=2.UP43.3. Whether i3=9,a3=5;OR i3=4,gh6=4,a6=6;c4=5.UP81. 23/Oct/11 1:44 PM |  |
 Kobold, don't know about "pointless" - after the als-xz pointed me at 9s patterns I was pretty focussed on using and making that skyscraper(9)! 23/Oct/11 6:25 PM |  |

 8.3*** a stumper? 23/Oct/11 11:53 PM |  |
 A ped path for 8.3***'tis a shame to pass up all the interesting cont. loops, but they seem superfluous in this solution.Heavy recycling of the same SIS suggests a likely kraken + 1 aic solution or better.0) SSTS 1) (8)gi7 = (8-5)e7 = abc7 - (5=64)c91 - g1 = (4-8)g4 = (8)i56 => More... 24/Oct/11 3:05 AM |  |
