A new blog page that reveals in how to make deductions considering only one type of candidate at a time (I call this coloring), will use today's tough puzzle for the illustrations.

The new page should be available about 2 hours after the new day here at sudoku.com.au.

color me done!
Nice early morning light
What a thoug !!
Start 23 (given puzzle) up 81
No job for Steve today...
Pretty picture with the water glistening.

Here is wishing everyone a good day and a nice week-end.
Sure was some cutesy candidate placement. Lots of useless hinges (3 of a candidate in an 'L' shape)Shoulda noticed the hidden 47 earlier although a 2-string kite and, and I HATE these, a finned swordfish, was the key to cracking it without coloring. Have a nice weekend, fellow (UTC -5.00) friends.
yes..really a cakewalk..loved doing it..and the picture is soothing....
Wow, about 35 mins today (no guesses) I kept checking to see that I was doing the 'tough'
Have a nice Maen all
Very beautiful picture shows the quite of early morning with the reflection of the morning on water surface.

Nice maEn to all.
No guesses today, although it wasn't as easy for me as for Lahire!

Both a finned swordfish and a two string kite are Coloring!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and Happy Chinese New Year to those who'll be celebrating.
13:49; beautiful pic.
Hi, lovely picture but is it a star or UFO in the sky.

Makes it easy for me to spot locked candidates etc. an x-wing is 2 parallel pairs of a candidate. if they're alone in the rows, eliminate the rest of that number in the columns or visa versa. When I run out of reductions More...
Good afternoon to all! That's a relaxing picture to start the weekend.
Beautiful photo. Who's the photographer?
The blinking ad to the right of the puzzle drives me nuts !!
Is that a shooting star?
Didn't anyone notice the COMET?
Susan, you should be able to turn off the 'blinking' ad by clicking on 'Go to the No Animated Ads' link to the right of the puzzle.
'Catch a falling star and put it in a basket, never let it fade away.'
Catch a falling star and put it in a basket, save it for a rainy day.
For love may come and catch you on the shoulder...
(I can't sing that high bit any more.)
