It should be possible to drag lines using a touch pad, assuming it's treated as a mouse and you're using the Flash solver... just hold down the stylus and try moving over the puzzle.

Thanks Foilman, but further to your comments below, where do I get a Flash solver?

Look near the bottom of your home page, and change the "use flash solver" option to "yes". But bear in mind you can't right-click the puzzles if you use it...

Thanks
I'll practise with this and see if my time improves.  (Sorry for messing up the best time ever chain - no more dumb requests here - until I get the appropriate time.)

Wow. I needed three tries (i.e. my weekly attempt and two additional tries) to get 29 seconds on that Tuesday puzzle. Helge, how did you solve this so fast on your first attempt? Impressive is an understatement.

My fastest recorded time (i.e. since May 22nd when this website began recording this) for a weekly puzzle is 41 seconds on a Monday puzzle...and I have no idea how to get faster than that^^.

Well, it's hard to say... I took a look at the monday results and there were several sub 1min times. So I thought I'd go for a really fast loop, and I did. I actually did a few bad mouse clicks and put down a few crosses (don't ask me why), so I think someone could do even better.

I have done this from time to time (inspecting the leaderboard before starting the puzzle), but it really feels like cheating.

The main reason I'm posting this is so that someone beats my record right away - the puzzle seems quite easy for a Thursday puzzle, so for those of you who - unlike me - don't use crosses etc., I'd say 45 seconds is very beatable.

38s is also beatable since I've made some wrong clicking during solving it

Yet another short-lived record for me, I'm guessing.
