okay maybe it is
acrostic 4:59. but it was an easy one, so i fully expect to be beaten.
8:45 on the acrostic with the applet(this is why I asked about it a couple days ago; if you were solving on a different medium, it wouldn't be worth comparing scores). Seems like I have to hone my skills a bit in order to post some more competitive times.
Same here, 8:43 for me on the acrostic.
Not quite so easy for me, Joon. I mean, there was Nabokov and fancy vocabulary! And math, sort of. :)
i guess you're right, although i didn't remember the nabokov quote (though it was fairly obvious once i had a few letters in there). anyway, i'll take it.wordplay commenters are saying they didn't know ALEATORY or STOCHASTIC. i learned the former from the brilliant vengsarkar/venkatasubramanyan sunday NYT, and STOCHASTIC is a word i've seemingly always known (and often have a chance to use), but neither one of them went in until i had pretty much the entire quote. but still, the theme was clear from the first few clues, so that made it easier to fill in the quote.at any rate, i'm surprised to be 3 minutes in the lead. tyler tweeted that this was an easy one for him; i wonder what his time was.
