Trnsferred, I hope this works.
The forum was copied to depth 4 (not what I mentioned before) which should make anything within 3 clicks of the start page accessible.
With the way the forum links are displayed, this means that that we have the very old & the very new but we missed the middle.
The early exchanges are still interesting. You will stumble across simes, Madoverload , angusj & rubylips (rubulips' Nishio enabled solver was the reason behind my interest in sudoku programming,
). You may come across me & other current forum members as well in those early exchanges 11-12 years ago under the same username or different ones.
I wish to thank Jason for his continued efforts & I wish to thank everyone that contributed into realising this effort.
