Every now and then, you'll start a puzzle, and someone will interrupt you with something urgent.   When you get back to your puzzle, you're practically guaranteed to get a fantastic time, except for the extra 10, 20, 30-mins you accrued while you were elsewhere.


So, here's a thread in which to vent about it.



Grrr...  My turn for this today.

Yeah I know. I would have got into at least club 49 this past week, except that my boyfriend phoned me when I was doing the Saturday puzzle and it ended up taking me over 30 mins!

Or when you do the puzzles in/before class and your professor walks by, so you have to minimize the site... Yeah... adds at least 4-5 minutes every time.

And when it takes you at least 10 mins to do the easy/medium puzzles (like it does me) the probability of your being interrupted in that time is even higher than it is for people who can solve the thing in a couple of minutes.  So it looks even worse for me!

Arrrgh!!  26 min sunday time, all because I was kicked off wireless.  That's probably the worst interruption ever.

Oh well, now I have to wait a whole week to get that horrible time off the board.

26minutes might be not so good, but no one is getting a good time for todays puzzle.
