As a retired programmer I looked at the javascript and it is not possible to cheat the time. The time must be tracked by the server. That means the time has to run from the time the server starts to send you the page puzzle until it gets the button click to check the puzzle.

The server-side script has no way of knowing when you finally get the whole page and are able to start solving, so unfortunately you do get penalized a bit for a slow connection.

I do wish the Javascript checked for duplicate letter assignments though. I just hate it when I'm stuck on a puzzle and then discover it's because I had 'E' down as two different code letters.
