I looked at the top 20 solve times for february 2008, and I would have been in the top 5. I guess I started 4 years too late. it just goes to show you how much faster these folks have gotten with practice. I don,t know how to type, and yet my solve times are improving. I am also beginning to recognize puzzles that I have solved in the past. no doubt about it , if you want to get faster, practice, practice,practice.
