Blog Update

So a couple of things have happened over the last couple of days.  Most importantly on the typography front, I've decided Times New Roman makes for lovely display, and that there are some acceptable other typefaces languishing in the google font foundry.

I'm rearranging other content from the blog as best I can, and there might even by the odd new tit-bit here or there.  For example my PhD thesis!  I'm also experimenting with the "jump break" feature.  At first glance this looks as if it might be immensely irritating to my dearest readers, but I also appreciate that I sometimes waffle on insufferably and this might give people a chance to navigate these choppy waters.

2017 Sudoku GP: Round 6 Serbia

A couple of weekends ago, a few nutjobs got a bit stabby in the London Bridge area of London - an area that is about half a mile from where I live.  I don't want to give them any coverage in particular, but what with everything going on I completely forgot to take part in round 6 of the Sudoku GP, "hosted" (I'm not sure that's exactly the right word) by Serbia.

I've gone away and solved the puzzles, not quite under time pressure as I got interrupted towards the end.  Nevertheless, I've done a review:

Enjoyment: N/A (doesn't seem appropriate without the full competition experience)
Classics: 6/10
Favourite Puzzle: Dead or Alive Arrows Sudoku

Unfortunately missing this round means I've hit a 0 for writing the UK round, and a 0 for this round, so everything else is going to count.  I really need a good couple of last rounds - I suspect the final UK reckoning is going to be very tight between Heather, Mark and myself.
