Does anyone honestly believe a 16-clue single-solution sudoku exists? Effort might be better spent trying to develop a proof that it cannot.
google sudoku boinc
for the only project I am aware of
doomed for failure at inception anyway -- at least for results in our lifetime
I recall they were trying to squeeze in on an exhaustive proof from both ends (small # clues ... 16 clues)
but didn't locate the original project goals though
