 Quite a contrast of style between the fountain and the tower. 27/Jul/13 12:07 AM some puzzles require brute-force backtracking technique (Your Way, JC); these are of no interest whatsoever to path finders because theresimply is NO reasonable path .. your challenge is an idle taunt JC. 27/Jul/13 2:38 AM P101: Symmetry=None, Start=23, SSTS=31SG @ UP31, FAIL; SE=9.0 @ 4 dynamic kraken, 9 kraken, 5 FC090060003010000050300000070000040000008000061000503400050019000104007000069000800 27/Jul/13 2:40 AM I agree with kobold. It took some time before I saw the wisdom of his advice but now I agree. 27/Jul/13 3:07 AM site puzzle a messy SE=8.4, buried @ SSTS=23my path not much better than SG:1. aahs[(5=8)i6-(8=1)f6-f8=*c8-(178=6)c239-i9=i3]||(51'-9)be8=f9-f3=h3-h6=(9-7)a6=(7-5)d6=i6 # -5i3, -9a92.

Both the tower and the water come to points at the top, from wider bases. 27/Jul/13 2:45 PM 1:21:26 28/Jul/13 12:47 AM #1. 8b74b7=4a9=4a8========4f8=8f88i7=8h9=====8i8====4h9=========4h3================3h3= 3c38b2=================3b2=2b2========================2b4=7b4========================2b6=7b6=3 More... 28/Jul/13 6:12 AM The path above is for P101, of course ! 28/Jul/13 4:26 PM not a path JC (also unreadable - you need to upgrade your software to make your forcing nets more legible!) 31/Jul/13 5:53 AM P101 (eureka path):1.
