Default Milestone(s) Approaching

Nobody's ever done it yet... but it's going to happen, and soon. Yep. There's a new Gryhnd watch we should be keeping our eyes on. No one has attempted 500,000 puzzles, but at her current pace Gryhnd will eclipse that mark by month's end (or thereabouts). And, of course, nobody has ever solved 500,000 puzzles. Gryhnd should have that mark in her rearview before year's end. What an amazing accomplishment! Good luck, Gryhnd!

An excellent observation, indeed, Barnabas! Go, Gryhnd!

Oh, wow!! As Gryhnd bravely goes, where no Crypto solver has gone before.

Good work, Gryhnd.

Thank you, for the heads up, Barnabas.

I'm just happy to have finally hit 5 million points. It took me almost three years. My next goal-reaching the top 100.

BTW, I want to congratulate the greyhound lady on her amazing upcoming accomplishment. Truly astounding.

Thanks. I'm at 108 now and should crack the top 100 sometime in September.

Some people rise meteorically up the points ladder. Macmilh was a marvel at how fast she rose, and continues to be seen regularly at the top each month. Another one to watch right now is a new player "Viktoria." She too will be in the top 100 sooner than later. Like you, Oddcouple, it took me 3 - 4 years to crack the top 100. Nothing wrong with slow but steady.

Oh - and it won't take more than a blink or two before Ernests makes a reappearance in the top 100. Welcome back, Ernests!
