okay maybe it is
Newsday in 2:09 (paper). My fastest ever by 10 seconds. I have to tell someone.
Excellent! I smell a B Division winner...
that's very fast. i clocked that one at 2:22, which is just under my tuesday ND average.B division is going to be interesting, that's for sure. david plotkin has crazy-fast across lite times; unclear how that will translate to paper. and then there's jeffrey harris.
Oh yeah... Jangler should have an easy time winning B if he doesn't make the top 3. I'm sure Plot can translate fast typing to fast writing -- after all, we did!
Nice. Found an appreciative audience :).Now how do you reverse that, and translate fast writing into fast and accurate typing? I haven't quite solved that enigma yet.
Thanks. Yeah, I wish the nouveau uber-swift would hurry up and become A's and leave the B Division for the rest of us.
My biggest problem with solving on paper is that it takes more time to read the clues. With Acrosslite, each clue is always in the upper left, and it's easy to transition from the across clue to its corresponding down clues. On paper I am forced to waste precious seconds scanning the down list, trying to locate the clue that I need.Howard, if you can train yourself to keep either the clues or the grid in your periphery at all times, I believe you can significantly decrease your acrosslite solving times without changing your typing speed.
After looking at my times, I realized I broke a personal record with this batch of Tuesday puzzles. This is the first time I've had five sub-two-minute solves in one day.Universal - 1:57USA - 1:52CS - 1:45ND - 1:30LAT - 1:48 Consider this evidence that my clue-reading 'system' works.
