I tried to generate the March 2007 Beast using the Loopy programme.
I keep getting the message "description too short for board size".  It appears the box to hold the input string truncates it somehow.
Does anyone have advice on how to get it to work?
Thanks

Interesting, I tried it and got the same error as you - in fact LOTS of those errors kept popping up. In the end I held down my Enter key until the errors went away, and then the puzzle appeared and looked fine... odd!

I save the .txt file to my local system and open it with a text editor.  I had no problem acquiring the string for March 2007.
