### How fast is SE on your computer?

I'm trying to test my hypothesis that SE runs at the speed of a snail stuck in a pile of superglue on my computer. I'd like to see how fast SE solves/rates these puzzles on your computer so I can compare my own results. By solving I obviously mean F9 not F8.

1. Eioru's lag puzzle:
Code: Select all
` . 4 5 . 6 7 . 8 9  6 . 7 8 . 9 4 . 5  8 9 . 4 5 . 6 7 .  4 . . 5 7 8 . 9 6  5 . 6 . 9 4 7 . 8  7 8 9 2 . 6 5 4 .  9 6 8 7 . . . 5 4  . 5 4 6 8 . 9 . 7  1 7 . 9 4 5 8 6 .  SE = 6.5`

2. The puzzle that SE solves like a "sat-nav":
Code: Select all
`. . . . 4 . . . . . . 1 3 . 5 6 . . . 7 . . . . . 2 . 4 . . . . . . . 3 . 8 . . . . . 9 . . . 5 6 . 7 4 . . . 2 . . 1 . . 7 . 3 . . . 6 . . . 8 . . . . . . . . .  SE = 7.4`

3. The Butt-Hole Sudoku from olimpia:
Code: Select all
`. . . . . . . . . . . 9 . 3 . 1 . . . 4 . . 8 . . 2 . . . . 1 . 7 . . . . 8 . . 4 . . 6 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 2 . . 6 . . 8 . . . 1 9 . 5 3 . . . . . . . . . . .  SE = 7.8`

4. #2 from the top1465:
Code: Select all
`7.8|...|3.....|2.1|...5..|...|...---+---+---.4.|...|.263..|.8.|......|1..|.9.---+---+---.9.|6..|..4...|.7.|5.....|...|... SE = 9.5`

5. 10.2 from the maximum number of clues:
Code: Select all
`64.|1.2|.35 3..|...|4.1 .51|..4|6.. ---+---+--- 7.5|2.8|..6 ...|...|... 4..|7.9|1.8 ---+---+--- ..4|6..|51. 5.6|...|..3 13.|9.5|.64  SE = *guess*`

My results are:
1. 322 seconds
2. 32.3 seconds
3. 4.3 seconds
4. 87 seconds
5. 16-19 minutes (I got bored watching paint dry on my computer screen so I only checked periodically.)
