Sudoku

Tomorrow a professor in South Carolina is going to spoil things by publishing his formula for solving any sudoku puzzle.  I like playing sudoka so I hope he doesn't.  Guess the number could be up Wink Wink

And that coming from a forum moderator, really I'm surprised at you adiewoo!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Sudoku

That damn rubik cube - many a wanted station passed by.
Enjoy Suduku. Wouldn't want to read about the formula - that'd just take any fun or sense of achievement away.

Re: Sudoku

While I, as many of you may know, am a great big fat loser at playing online PS3 games, when I wasa kid I could complete the Cube in 49 seconds.  Made a small fortune in cash and sweets at school by completing cube for people. 
Re Sudoku - I was listening to a Rick Gervais podcast - Karl Pilkington was making the great point about why do newspapers bother to print the solutions the next day.  Is there anyone who looks at it and says "Oh - THAT'S where the 9 goes."  It's not a like crossword, is it?
