PostSubject: T he portal crossword.   Mon Feb 13, 2017 6:17 pm

Just curious...does anyone else spend a few minutes every/some days completing the crossword which is featured in the portal section?
I usually have a coffee around 10.30 in the morning and tackle the daily puzzle while taking a break...takes my mind off tasks allocated for the rest of day.

After a few years of doing this, even though I'm almost always able to complete the puzzle without help, I've never been able to understand the scoring system...which is better: a high number or the lower one? eg. over the last week, my score has varied between
273 and 761, but I always seem to be able to complete the puzzle in around 12 and 15 minutes.

Does anyone know what is the better score?

As above, I'm just curious.

I sometimes have to resort to asking for a letter...usually when it involves an abbreviation eg. one of the bits today requested the abbreviation for something to do with pensions and I had no idea.

On whole though, I only have to cheat about one in ten times.

It's a good way to pass the time.

Thank you Berni...something seems to have changed with the set up today. Early this morning the crossword was the same as yesterdays, a few hours later, a new one had appeared and I completed it...now there is yet another one on there.

Curious.

Not bothered too much...I went ahead and did it anyway. 476 in 16 mins and no cheating.

The clock is still haywire and I noticed that two of the days on the calender are highlighted in blue...what's that all about?

Well done again! I think, like everything else, once you start making changes in anything technical something else changes too. Am sure Ash will get to the bottom or it before long. g
