...is a crutch for the feeble-minded.

Is there any honour in a fast time if it was achieved using "fix position"? What do you guys think?

Interestingly, quite a while ago Foilman and I had an e-conversation which went something along the lines of: 'how about a penalty of some description each time you use the 'reset to fixed' button?'. I can't remember exactly what our conclusion was at the time, probably something like 'Great idea.  How big a penalty?', 'Um... Oh.'.  However, now that there is a lot more experience of how long the puzzles take etc, I might suggest a 15 second time penalty for using the reset to fixed button?

Though having said that, on the weekend puzzles I'll take all the crutches I can get!
