3/14/2009 Santomierda: Many thanks for the frequent updates, it's fun to try to move up the list. Good luck with your chase of moe99 and flin.
5/26/2007: This game seems simple, but there always seems to be a little faster way to solve the same problem.
Posted some time early in 2006:
I live in Indiana and tell every sudoku fan I meet about this site. With Autocomplete enabled in Internet Options and after many completed puzzles all nine numbers appear in the pulldown when you double click a box. This is the fastest entry method I've found, but has never gotten me below 5 minutes on the easiest sudokus when I never pause more than a few seconds from entry to entry. It would be faster to run the mouse with one hand and the keypad with the other. I've never learned to enter numbers by touch anyway, so deciding which one to do with the left hand isn't an option. Do some of you sub 5 minute people have a faster entry method? I currently have 357 ignored players going back several months. Most of them have disappeared, thank goodness.
I'm currently struggling with the decision of when I'm dealing with a tough sudoku and should abort the scan method, print out as far as I am (I use Irfanview), pencil in all possibles, and start marking out all non-workables. This method seldom gets me below 15-20 minutes- good for a toughie, but not so hot if scanning would have worked.
A suggestion for James: add another colored star for members with anything in personal information? It might encourage people to put something there and would let everyone know which names had something to read.
