Can anyone please tell me the number of the Sudoku puzzle published in the November 29, 2005, issue of the Toronto Star?

(Trying to solve it is driving me crazy!)

If you want to use the Solution Retrieval mechanism on my website, the number you need is not the newspaper's own numbering system.

What you need is the puzzle's 5-digit code, and that is the first 5 digits of the puzzle - note: the puzzle (as printed), not the solution (correct or otherwise).

In effect, puzzles are "self-numbering". For an illustration of what is meant by the 5-digit code, look at the diagram on the Solution Retrieval page.
