Breaking my silence

by Richard on June 1, 2009

I’m back. There’s been no particular reason for my absence. Just “stuff”. That, and not feeling like I had anything to say. And when you have nothing to say, it’s usually best to say nothing!

The Pleasure of Sudoku

by Richard on May 8, 2007

I enjoy puzzles of most kinds, though they can be timewasters if I’m not careful. Cryptic crosswords are a favourite, though I’ve rarely finished one in any of the ‘quality’ newspapers.

Sudoku

by Richard on September 18, 2005

I realise that not everyone likes these things, but I enjoy ‘em. The rules are dead easy - fill in the grid so that every column, row and 3×3 box contains the numbers 1-9. No need to do any adds, takeaways or guzzinters. It’s about reason, not ‘rithmetic.
