Haha, you think WAY too highly of me.  There's no way I could ever get a sub 5 minute time on the weekend.  I'll get around to it sometime today.

Hmm, kwontom on NFL Draft day?  Nah, I was busy watching tv.

Good to see Foilman with a daily first again!  With a Friday score like that, I've got my fingers crossed for the weekend. 

I'm holding to my idea that we won't break 20mins... so c'mon you guys! Prove me wrong tomorrow!

I had a lot of luck on today's... took a wild guess, followed it through and it worked. And that was on the morning after a beer festival, too...!

Well, I'll be surprised if Dr Null or Procrastinator shatter *this* weekend's times (well, they may by a few minutes, but probably not by much more than that).

Wow, but those were nasty!

Okay guys, we have another chance at the record this weekend!

An average of just over 7mins for sat/sun will break the current record...

Well, there goes 20mins, and 19mins.

[Kath eats her hat.]

Um, anyone care to suggest odds on the 15min barrier?

If we could get all of this week's weekdays below 2 min. we could break 15 minutes.

Only if they average below 54s apiece.  We need to go substantially below 2mins to break the 15min barrier.

I know how it feels. I used to think that they cheated or something but now I know that practice really does make perfect (or at least it makes you better)

By the way you probably won't last long because Jankonyex hasn't done today's yet. I don't see how that guy blows away everyone on ktw. But as for obtaining first it is easy to do if you are one of the first people to do the current wrong. It is just a matter of time before you lose it. Same goes for the loop.

Definitely true.  I've been here nearly a year now, and back when I started out you could easily get on the leader board with 3min weekday times and 15 min weekenders.  There's a nice scatter-plot somewhere else in the forum which shows, um, weekly totals, I think, vs. number of puzzles completed.  There's a very clear downwards trend.


Hmmm... it'd be nice if the forum had a "search" function...

See? What did I tell you? Jankonyex still hasn't done it and you are already in sixth.

I must need new glasses.

Anyway, I see procrastinator has raised (or rather lowered) the bar once again.  Nice to see the <4min time appear!

hey mattzerah speaking of first I can't believe that I am not only in first for the loops at the moment but I am also the only one in club 59. I will keep watching it to see how long that lasts.

The leaderboard feels a lot more open without Dr. Null and a few of the other top contenders!
