Maradnu, as a matter of fact, I did hit a score of 448 on this quote. "There is nothing certain, but the uncertain." It's my only 10-second time, but I have hit the 11-second mark 3 times. I don't recall what the scores were on those quotes. Now to work on breaking the 9-second barrier!

Cool still cute!

Still cute, and very appropriate for the upcoming holiday.
I can't change mine....my cat likes his picture up on this site.

On a different note, I just solved a puzzle in 33 sec. that bansaisequoia (sp?) had the record time on of 13 seconds. Holy fast solving time!!!!!! Seriously...I have my doubts I'll ever get one in under 15 seconds unless my typing and mouse skills are vastly improved. Still, I'm enjoying trying! And I do get a little thrill when I see my name as the fastest, or when I break the record. I recently broke my OWN record on a crypto, lol!

Default fastest solving time....

I hit a couple where I had the record... maybe 30 seconds.... and it took me 45 or 60 seconds to solve it again.... well duh! I must be getting dumber. I can't even recall solving them. I just move on to the next one and don't even read most of them. I have had quite a few which I solved in 20 seconds, or 25 seconds, and I am sure it must be a record, but someone else has solved it in 19 or 18 seconds!

Wink dumber

Me too. The dumber part, I mean. I think sometimes it all depends on my frame of mind. Some days I can whip through these things and some days I feel like my head is filled with pencil shavings. I guess I could chalk it up to lack of sleep, too much sleep, too many drinks the night before, or any number of things. Who knows?

Yesterday I got the SLOWEST score on one of the cryptos.... 800 some seconds. I REALLY felt my brain was turning to mush then!

Default So Sad

"Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou hast, nor all thou cans't." by Benny the Frank took me 4474 seconds for 10 points and reduced by solving time from my all time best of 79 seconds to 111.6 The really sad part is I had just set a record time on the quote before. Oh well.

Default oh no!

That's awful! And what a difficult quote! You are a trooper for sticking with it! You have the 100% success rate still....

It seems to me that every time I set a record, it's my OWN time I beat! Lol!

I'm so excited. I just scored 447 for the first time. My best before was 446. Solved in 18 seconds and beat the last record holder by 1 second.
