I didn't see the buttons up there either. Good to know if something comes up.

Nice, you might win this one!

I blame @iacas, since he posted the link to that site.
I kinda like doing the puzzles and do a couple a day.
So I will ask how do you do the puzzle?
a) trying to put parts of the picture together
b) looking at the shape of pieces and fitting them together

And I presume that everyone puts the edge pieces together first, if not how do you start?

I mainly use method b) because I don't have the top of the box to look at, unless there are obvious parts of the puzzle that fit

B makes sense...and I’m certainly not going to argue with you on the matter. :-)

5:48, just nipped you. I didn't log in though (I keep flash disabled on Safari, so I upload and logged in via Chrome). Different computer today so my Safari wasn't logged in here.

A fact that's not apparent when you click to the Solve link directly. On the bright side the HTML5 version was pretty good.

Ha, then I tried it logged in and got 6:46! :-P

Getting better, but still pretty bad. I found myself floundering looking for parts rather than just placing them.

Wonder if I'll be in second place for the 3rd week in a row...

You're in first right now. The problem is, the winner each week forgets to email or PM me on Mondays… :-)

10:54 .... you'd think I would do better since I had the picture up on my second monitor, but no.

How did you have the picture on the other monitor? Or should I be asking? :-D

I sent Erik the puzzle picture .... and while maybe I technically cheated, it clearly didn't help me much. :-(
