How fast is SE on your computer?

Postby 999_Springs » Sun Apr 19, 2009 6:07 pm

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.|...|.26
3..|.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.)
