    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    Puzzles
    My parents came to visit and introduced me to Sudoku. A number placement puzzle. I had fun for about 2 puzzles before realizing the computer would really help reduce the manual mistakes. So I wrote a program to help solve them. There are plenty of solvers already on the web. Mine is merely a tool to help.

    Sudoku Solver.

    I then took this infatuation to a geeky level by writing a Flash tool to help me solve more generic placement puzzles like those found at
    Paldin Puzzles. Check out the hall of fame link. Woot!

    Give me a few days to polish them for public consumption.

    But what I really need to be working on is my word game. Unfortunately I was discouraged when the first playable version turned out to be not so much fun. Awful actually. But I have 2 ideas that came from that effort that just need time.
