I notice that FakeMaster (or whatever the name was) racked up some impressively high times this week, but has since disappeared from the leader tables.

Is there a story behind this?

There is indeed! I did a bit of digging around in the database and discovered it was actually someone using two logins; they had already completed the puzzles with one, then copied the answers into the second. Very sneaky! But it was fairly obvious from the internal logs, so I removed the "fake" one and rolled back the scores.

Your impressive times still stand!

Thought so.  Those times were really a little suspicious!  I could believe a few seconds being shaved off here and there, maybe up to half a minute for Tuesday's puzzle..  but several minutes?  No way!
