Thumbs up Highest score

Tonight I hit 447 for an 18 second puzzle. Can't imagine I'll get a better score.

Default Great Job !!

Congratulations on those scores. I've seen 447 on a few very rare occasions (considering how much time I spend here) but have never managed anything higher.

I just noticed the bell curve for the first time tonight. It's a really neat feature, and I'm wondering how long it's been there. (When I was still living with my parents, one night I noticed the kitchen was a different color. Then I found out it had been that way for months.)

And by the way, it took me almost an hour to figure out this one:
Jove but laughs at lover's perjury.
This site is killing me. I'm up half the night trying to finish the work I should have been doing instead of cryptograms.

Default Wow

I leave town for a week and come back in the bottom 50 (of course) but look at all the new features. The Bell Curve, who solved the most quickly, and even a chat room. WOOHOO.

I am glad Digirl is fine.

I like the post about haven't reached 447 yet. I like the yet.

Gotta go, it will take me most of the rest of the month to get out of the hole. (*.*)

Default Highest score

Don't know what his score on it was, but I solved a puzzle tonight that another player solved in 15 seconds.

Default what is your highest score?

What happens when you tie someone else for the fastest time on a crypto? I just did. Just curious....

Default Tied time

They only seem to show one puzzler under fastest time, so unless they are capturing fractional seconds, I'd guess they are listing the first person with that time.

Maybe the administrator could tell us for sure?

Question Another Question

Are the times based on scores before or after the CRASH? I don't recognize many of the names, is why I ask.

Default Fast times

I think post crash. There do seem to be some new folks with some very fast scores at times.

Just finished a puzzle in 16 seconds that bansaisequoia did in 10 seconds. At 16 seconds my score was 447, I suspect he may have gotten a better score.

Cute new avatar smoochie.
