My status says i've got almost 2 days elapsed on saturdays puzzle, but I don't remember ever opening it, and I was about to leave the house to go shopping, so theres no reason why I would have opened it at that time... Very strange.

I don't suppose anything strange like this has ever happened to anyone else?

I had that happen to me once last year - but I know why it happened in my case. I have a Firefox extension that reloads my last set of tabs, and I'd left my Kwon-Tom tab on the current puzzle page... so after starting my browser one morning, unknown to me that tab now had that day's puzzle in it and the timer had started. It was only when I looked at it much later that I realised what had happened! I'm now quite careful to leave that tab on the leaderboard...

Something similar happened to me once, with internet explorer. I entered this site by clicking on one of the many 'kwon-tom-loop' pages in my 'history' of yesterday. A puzzle appeared and I immediately went to the scoreboard. Unfortunately I must have entered the site at 'current puzzle', not realizing this. So now I always visit this site via 'favorites', which I have pointed to the score board.
