Default times they are a changing

I agree, MBackhoe, it's just fun to try to challenge yourself and get a few more pegs up everytime. I love having this kind of a site! But, then I've never been a competitive person, so maybe it's hard to understand the need! Now chocolate? That's different!

solving cryptograms while eating chocolate, forget about the solve time. I have only seen the airplane a few times, and it must have been a new puzzle because I know others solved it quicker now. Abra, I know what you mean when yo solve a puzzle super fast. even when you see that someone else beat your time, it is still a good feeling. Too bad there is not a way to have our fastest time included in our records):

Annamariah, Congratulations on a six second solve. You've become really quick, really fast .
A six second solve even if it isn't a record is REALLY something. You've obviously got the gift.

OMG!! Annamariah....a 6 second solve?? I'm so truly impressed....my fastest solve was maybe 12 and that was probably due to playing for so many years and recognizing the author and the cadence of the quote. Kudos to you.

I wish I found this site sooner. I have improved rapidly in the six months I have been playing, but have seen the airplane 4-5 times. I doubt I will ever reach the tip top, but I am definitely competitive! After hanging around the 90% mark in an effort to focus on solve time (and getting distracted when I play) my goal this month is to stay at 100% as long as possible.

My goal this month is to get out of this van down by the river.

Workin' off that steady diet of government cheese. Welcome aboard, Prezkot. You took off like bullet train at the start of this month. Keep up the good work.

Can anyone tell me what the aforementioned "airplane" is referring to?

When you solve any puzzle with a faster time than the current record holder, a lovely plane flies onto your screen to congratulate you.
