Sudoku solved in world record time?

Postby 999_Springs » Sun Oct 31, 2010 10:30 pm

So. Last night I got bored and decided to work on the fiendish Su-Doku that is provided daily by The Times newspaper. However, this time I managed to do it so fast that it created a time warp. Despite messing up the puzzle originally due to misreading my pencilmarks, when I'd finished it, my solving time was MINUS 49 minutes and 41 seconds. I suspect this may be a new world record time.

Here's the puzzle:
Code: Select all
...|..1|...
6..|.7.|3..
.23|...|81.
---+---+---
7..|.54|.3.
...|..9|..6
9..|.86|.5.
---+---+---
.91|...|78.
2..|.1.|6..
...|..3|...

ER = A pathetic 1.5.

Go on. See if you can beat my best time.

I will. But I'll wait until the 30th October next year.
