November 11, 2011
And so, dearest reader, it matters not that that I’ve been away all week at both a world sudoku championship and a world puzzle championship performing quite well in the former and somewhat forgettably in the latter. Here is a Friday puzzle which is (just about) on time!
Yup, no puzzling updates, because frankly at this stage I’m not sure I want to write about how pear-shaped things have turned and I am sure that you probably don’t want to hear about my moanings just quite yet, so here is a slitherlink, plain and simple. Conceived on a long and boring coach trip, no less. Enjoy!
EDITED EDIT: this one works!

So I’ll just make a brief update for now, without getting onto day 1 of the WPC, just to say that after staying up until 2.30am drinking, bowling and table tennis-ing I not only managed to finish a WPC round, I managed to finish a WPC round faster than 7-time world champion Ulrich Voigt. It seems I’ll have to be taken my victories as they come – like I say more detailed reports later, but I can’t go without mentioning that Neil Z is currently 9th (after the first day)
I’ve also realised that I’ve not posted the full UK results from the WSC. They were about to be typed, but apparently we have a round to start.
