Anyone Sudoku?

By KSoniat ·
My sister got me started - they were in her daily paper (Seattle) before I even heard of them.

I have recently discovered "jigsaw" sudoku which adds a whole level of complexity.

I was at an "Invention Convention" waiting for my daughter's project to be judged, and the judges walked by where I was sitting with some sudoku to tide me over the possible 2 hour wait. Most commented on it being a good idea to pass the time and how they enjoyed them . I wondered if it was because it was a group of technical / professional types.

So I though I'd poll my new favorite group of technical professionals.

Do you Sudoku?
Or if you knew you'd have a two hour wait in a Dr. office where you were a captive audience while test results were being processed what would be your preferred way to pass the time?

Yes I do

by Fregeus In reply to Anyone Sudoku?

Every morning on my way to work, on my way back and when I have to wait for something. It a purely logical puzzle, which is why I like it so much.

Thanks for the link RFink.

I complete moderate to tough on regular ones. On the jigsaw I still am at "Gentle".

Public Transport?

by KSoniat In reply to I do one every morning on ...

I hope you are taking public transport while you are completing the puzzle.

I've heard about texting and driving, not Sukodu and driving. :)

When I spent a few summers in Seattle during college I would always have a book for the bus ride into the city to work. The trip went really fast.

My commute which fortunately is down to two days a week now, is extensive. Get up at six, at work for 9:30, leave at 18:30 (avoid rush hour), home for 21:20.

Train, tram and the odd mistake due to rain spots blurring my working out.

My hubby used to have an hour commute each way to work. Now he is in Alabama during the week and comes home weekends (5 hours). He jokes he has the same commute, just all crammed into the weekend.

Nowadays one must do what one must do.

Never been different for me

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Ouch!

As soon as I moved away from the local steelworks, I was commuting. Sounds a bind, but the first time I did it, I got a 10k payrise, which gave me some loose change after paying for the ticket....
I did 18 months in Amsterdam on silly money with a needed skills tax incentive (20% !) as well. Well worth the trip.
