Mike I can never do these things because once I get to the number questions,
I'm a goner! But when I tried, I couldn't get it to load past (I think)
page 11. Is that a Mac user problem, perhaps?


No, it isn't :-)

Funny how some people
are naturally less at home with numbers: one of my daughters and one of
my nieces have the same gonerness, though way above average at language
and other things.

Quite, my wife won't attempt Sudoku, which I love, because it's numbers but
I'm certain if I replaced the numbers with letters ie, a to i (it would work
just as well) she would not be put off at all. I wonder what it is about
numbers that puts people off?

I wish I knew that too ! They just don't 'speak' to me at all. I blame my
math teachers halitosis. I never wanted to ask when I didn't understand
because he'd come and lean over to explain .....!

I once did a quiz which was interesting because it gave a string of
numbers or initials and you had to figure out the series. So SSMTWT
would have F for Friday, next or 31, 28, 31, 30, 31 would have 30 for
days in June next.
I enjoyed those, found myself waking up in the middle of the night with
a solution to the next question

Some of the pages were extremely slow to load Sacha so maybe you just
times out?

In my case, partly bad teaching and partly not natural aptitude. I cannot
fathom out what Sudoku is about, let alone do it! But I love doing - or
at
least, attempting - crosswords.

If you can do a crossword you can do Sudoku, it's easier, you don't have to
know anything to do it, it's just logic and reasoning that solves them.
The numbers 1 to 9 are simply convenient symbols they have no mathematical
significance in this context and could easily be nine different animals or
nine different letters or nine different cars...... etc.

What browser were you using? Try with another browser perhaps? I was using
Firefox (on a Mac as you know), no problems loading any page at all.


Er. You know how good I am at these things. I'm running Safari, using
Entourage.


OK, well seriously OT for this group, but I find that if I have a problem
with a particular site, it is sometimes helpful to try it in another browser.
I happen to use Firefox as my default, but have several loaded for other
reasons. You might like to try it (free download) - you may even like it
enough to keep it!
