Welcome back, and welcome to Week 8.
The biggest development in the cross world (that wasn’t about French-American actresses) is the release of the Indie 500 guest constructor requirements. So it appears I have about two months to write a puzzle for the chance at a glorious $500 (!). I’ve had a puzzle idea in my back pocket for a couple of months now, and this might be the venue for it. And speaking of the Indie 500, will I be able to schedule another puzzle trip in for 2015? I’m already heading to Boston on MLK weekend for one pretty high-scale puzzle tournament, so can I do another? ACPT will be right in the middle of my spring semester, but this one will be taking a place about a month after I graduate, so the chance is still alive!
Damn, I’m going to graduate in less than a year.
Enjoy the puzzle!
