### Help with 2/15/07 Black Belt Puzzle

Can you PLEASE give me the next few moves on this puzzle - it starts like this.
Code: Select all
` *-----------*  |.9.|8..|5..| |...|...|3..| |.2.|.5.|.9.|  |---+---+---|  |21.|5..|..6|  |...|6.3|...|  |...|..1|.78|  |---+---+---|  |.4.|.9.|...|  |5.1|...|...|  |..8|..5|.4.|  *-----------*`

I could only determine three of the cells so far before being stuck!
Code: Select all
` *--------------------------------------------------------------------*  | 13467  9      3467   | 8      123467 2467   | 5      126    1247   | | 14678  5678   4567   | 12479  12467  24679  | 3      1268   1247   | | 134678 2      3467   | 1347   5      467    | 14678  9      147    | |----------------------+----------------------+----------------------|  | 2      1      479    | 5      478    4789   | 49     3      6      |  | 478    78     479    | 6      247    3      | 1249   125    12459  |  | 36     356    356    | 249    24     1      | 249    7      8      |  |----------------------+----------------------+----------------------|  | 367    4      2      | 137    9      678    | 1678   1568   1357   |  | 5      367    1      | 2347   234678 24678  | 26789  268    2379   |  | 9      367    8      | 1237   12367  5      | 1267   4      1237   |  *--------------------------------------------------------------------*`

The puzzle as shown, original and your stuck state, cannot be solved. Maybe you copied it wrong?

That is wonderful news - maybe I am not as dense as I thought? I will check the original again when I get back to work on Monday.
