 This puzzle likely does not require the elephant gun I used to slay it. Nevertheless, I thought some might find it interesting to see an Almost Finned Swordfish in action, so I blogged today's tough. The link to the blog page will appear at the top of the upper right column, directly under the words "Check out the sudoku blog". 25/Feb/11 9:18 PM |  |
 Interesting rock fossil! I find them intriguing. 26/Feb/11 12:09 AM |  |

 first step extends chain from (9)g4I] -(9)g3=df3II] -(489=6)ahi5 with (6)hi5 on both ends 26/Feb/11 2:28 AM |  |
 Steve, reading your blog I see you found the same chain in step 3. Also (rarely?) hidden == als can be found from partition 'pivot' cells such as c2 in today's puzzle which is als == als. Other stranger pairings are also possible. 26/Feb/11 2:46 AM |  |

 Too hard for me. I had to make two guesses - to save my failing memory I suppose. 26/Feb/11 4:19 AM |  |
 That's not a fossil, that's an ancient skid mark, possibly from the very first wheel! 26/Feb/11 5:51 AM |  |
 OMG, Dan! You're talking skid marks? 26/Feb/11 6:29 AM |  |
 Took way longer than it should have - a little over 30 minutes. 26/Feb/11 10:50 AM |  |
 I wish I knew what it was. Because I was standing at the top of a chairlift in Banff National Park, I couldn't collect it to take it somewhere it could be identified. There was a whole bunch of interesting stuff melting out the snow up there. 26/Feb/11 10:53 AM |  |
 Would have made a good back scratcher? 26/Feb/11 5:37 PM |  |
 1. Note d6/f4=25;df8=69.Unique possibilities to 24.2. If e4=7,e9=8=i7=g3,g4=9=e6(because locked 9s at df3),i5 has no candidate.So e4=9.UP34.3. If c67=12,c9=4,b1=5=a8,b8=3,b7=2=c6,d6=5,d7=3;top right box is devoid of 23.So c6=9.UP42.4. Whether b1=9,a2=2(to avoid the 48 unresolvable rectangle at ab25);OR b1=5=a8,b7=3;b6=2.UP81. 26/Feb/11 11:51 PM |  |
