Very nice!  Back in the old days it was very much a gradual improvement, but since last December it's only been creeping down in fits and starts.  We're definitely getting closer to the theoretical limits now, and things are only going to improve in easy weeks.  In the right conditions, I think we could see totals in the 16-20min range, but I don't think it'll happen too soon. 

As for today's puzzle, that one's down to women's intuition.

Is the champions total just one person's total that a few people tied or is it all of the best times for each day?

If you look under the "Daily Champions" table there's a total at the bottom. The best ever is the fastest total recorded to date.

Yes but was that a group effort or did they just tie eachother?

It's the total of the best times for each day of the week. If there's a tie you'll see both names on the Daily Champions table.

Interestingly, last sunday is the only time when we've had seven different people on the record-beating champions team.

Here's the graphical changing total!


You can really see that we get a lot of incremental changes over the course of a few days or a week, but the jumps/changes during those periods of change are starting to get a lot smaller and less frequent.
