After a week of apathy and then a week of server issues, I’m back on the blog, although it appears that AS has been keeping everyone happy from Indonesia in my absence. I grabbed the paper on Friday morning and made a flying start on this DA on the way to work – by the time the junkie express ground to halt at Victoria St, about half of the puzzle was done and I was feeling confident about being able to knock it off over the weekend and post triumphantly here this evening.
Unfortunately, as seems often to be the case, real life intervened, in the form of a busy Saturday afternoon, a ruinously drunken evening at the Curtin Bandroom on Saturday night and the vague blur that constituted Sunday. The lesson that the last coupla weeks has taught me is that if I don’t post on this blog by Monday, I don’t post at all, so rather than hanging on in the vague hope of being able to finish this puzzle, I’m posting the nearly finished article here for discussion. Next week, I’m hoping to stay on the straight and narrow and have a proper solution by Monday.
But then, I’ve said that before.
Oh, and does anyone have the solution?
