 The sky seems somewhat unnatural but weirdily kewl! 10/Jun/10 2:11 AM relatively difficult. 10/Jun/10 2:51 AM Yes, ralphmouth, it does look like a cool day there. 10/Jun/10 2:53 AM maen all! nice cruising place...looks like the wind whips it up pretty good being so open though. 10/Jun/10 4:16 AM 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. 10/Jun/10 9:29 AM 1)Start at 23,basic techniques to UP=312)(7):d5=d2-e3=g3,=>g5<>73)(2)d1=e3-g3=(2-1)g7=g5-b5=(1-5)b3=(5)b1,=>d1<> 5.UP=334)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<>95)Kraken More... 10/Jun/10 9:29 AM a really complicated solution: 1. UP=322. (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... 10/Jun/10 9:35 AM ...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). 10/Jun/10 9:50 AM (5)b1=(5-1)b3=(1)b5-(1)g5=A(18:2)i7-(2)i1=(2)d1.A:(2)i7||(1)i7-(1)g7||(8)i7-(138=2)h8gh7-( 1)g7. 10/Jun/10 10:03 AM 4.(1)i2=h2-h8=d8-(2)d8=B(67:1)g5. => i56g7<>1.B:(1)g5||(7)g5-(137)d578||(6)g5-(6)i45=(*268)i127-(*17)hi2=(7)d2-(137)d578 10/Jun/10 10:11 AM 3.loop (7)g3=e3-d2=C(89:4)b2-D(4:16)a3=(1)i6-(1=678)g459.C:(4)b2||(9)b2-(9)d2||(8)b2-(8=2)b9-e9=e 3-(2=9)d1-d2.D:(4)a3||(1)a3-(1)a6||(6)a3-(6=4)c3-c6=a6-(1)a6. 10/Jun/10 10:32 AM 24:42 10/Jun/10 10:53 AM Hm,,, I was sorry I hadn't timed it since this puzzle just zipped right along for me, click click click and it was solved. 10/Jun/10 12:15 PM snow is falling for the start of the ski season this weekend ... lots of cars travelling along Lake Jindabyne early Saturday morning... 10/Jun/10 1:33 PM 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 10/Jun/10 5:02 PM 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. 10/Jun/10 6:21 PM Alfred, Thanks. You are quite correct - my logic is flawed.
