site puzzle is TT 8.9. SE @ 4 dynamic krakens, 1 kraken, 28 chains & BUG. I had to use 2 krakens, checking to reduce to 1.
23/Sep/11 12:53 AM
SSTS// SS(6), -6c5
key to today's TT is: (15=9)i47-(89=1)f78-d9=d3. call this X
1. SS(1)d39.fg8=i8-X # -1g3
2. K Column(1)a469 # -7d3
(1)a9-d9=d3
||
(1-2)a6=(2-6)b5=b4-(6=7)d4
||
(1)a4-gi4=i6-X
3. K Row(1)fgi8 # -1f1, -3d3, SSTE
(1)f8-d9=d3
||
(1-2)g8=SS(2)g25.b5a6-(2=3)a2-abc1=f1
||
(1)i8-X
the result is SE=7.1

possible SSTE after ice breaker krakens is:
// WW(48)ch5ah9, -8a46
// MW(84)bfg7e8, -4b8
// SS(9), -9i7
// (2=1)a6-(1=9)i6-ef6=(9-6)f5=b5 # -2b5, UP81

path for JBT 8.3 (valid puzzle according to SE sotir)
1. aur(37)ci12::(6)i1=*(7)a1-(37)a45=XW(5)ab59-(5=8)e9-(8=457)egh2-(37=6)i12 # +6i1
2. (7=458)egh2-e9=h9-h6=(8-1)i6=(1-7)g6=g2 # +7g2, UP81

Site Puzzle: (kraken free)
1) start ssts; FSF(6)de249,c2,b4 => b3,c5<>6
2) SkyScraper(1)fh1,fg8 = i8 - (15=9)i47 - (9=18)f78 => f1<>1; some ssts
3) Some sort of simple Wing: (1)d3 = (1-6)f3 = (6)f5 - (6=7)d4 => d3<>7, some ssts; WWing (48)c5,a9,(4)h59 => More...

Please forgive me, my step 2 is complete garbage.
24/Sep/11 2:07 PM
Steve, must be missing something, but I don't see how SS(1)fh1.fg8 -- (1)f1 (indeed, I don't see anything weak with that SS except (1)g3.h9) ?? for your step 2. The elimination is invalid. After -1f1, of course krakens not needed, result after my step 3 is SE=7.1. BTW, good to have you back on site.

- excuse, posted before I read your disclaimer Steve.

Can probably interpose a sdq into kobolds solution to the 8.9,:
1) SSTS; FSFs(6)de168,b4,c2 => c5,b3<>6

2)
(1)a9 - d9 = (1)d3
||
(1-2)a6 = (2-6)b5 = b4 - (6=7)d4
||
(1)a4 - (1=5)i4 - (5)i7 = ALSxMXW rc(9)[(1)c7a9,i7 = (18)d89] - (1)d9 = (1)d3

=> More...
