### Problem on med lvl sudoku

I did a bunch of v. easy and easy sudoku in a row before going on to med lvl . I swear, I can't find anything else in this one. That may be because of the fact that i've been looking at these things for a couple hours now solving lower lvl ones.

Anyway..here it is..

Code: Select all
`-------------|...|...|.85||.58|21.|..9||96.|.8.|1..|-------------|5..|8..|.16||...|...|...||89.|..6|..7|-------------|..9|.78|452||3..|.54|...||485|...|...|-------------`

I'm sure the next step is sitting there slapping me in the face having a good old time..however, I cannot see it.

Please help a man that, in the future..will do nothing but count from 1 to 9 over and over again, causing little children to run and make up stories about crazy 9 man.
