A hint for people who can't imagine finishing a puzzle in less than 50 seconds: I've found these last two Mondays I can click much more quickly without losing accuracy if I clean out the rollers of my mouse before playing. That's if you have an old-fashioned ball mouse and a desk as grubby as mine.

Tried that - my weekend mouse is filthy beyond all repair!

Wish I could blame my weekend times on a dirty mouse - don't know what happened today, just couldn't see the solution and ended up guessing most of it.

I have one of those fancy laser mice, sans cord.

I'm drooling over one of those tablet pc's though. To use a pen to do these would increase my time by at least 50%, I'd guess ... Or maybe my hand would get in the way? I've never actually printed out a puzzle and compared times.

Something which would improve my times no end, is something to map nearby clicks onto the actual edges they are closest to. (Something my LoopDeLoop program does.)  I am forever clicking and getting no response because i've moved my mouse just a little bit short of the target.
Unfortunately I can see that this would be a pain to write in javascript.

Oh yes!  Although with my grotty mouse, I don't know if that would make things better or worse... Maybe I should just stick to doing these puzzles before work.
