Does anyone know where I can find the solutions to the 2 posted Su Doku puzzles at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-1829510,00.html ?

I couldn't find a link to a solution.

I'm not sure if it's appropriate to post solutions just like that. Hopefully someone would help you with that.

I don't know if they've actually been published, but it shouldn't be hard to find a page on the internet that solves them (there are several, but annoyingly no names spring to mind).

You can't get the solutions by entering the first five numbers on the solutions page either!

While described as Ultra Fiendish, I don't think they're as difficult as some of the Sunday Times Superiors - although I did make use of the uniqueness principle in solving the second one which I didn't know about when they were published in October.

Are you actually wanting a solution or help towards finding the solution yourself?

I'm not sure they're necessarily meant to be harder than Sunday Times Superiors - they were difficult HARDs, as opposed to the V.Hard, you get in the Sunday paper. It's confusing though, because the ones in that Ultimate Su Doku book that were called ultra-fiendish really are V.HARDs.

I'm new to Sudoku and am getting stuck on these ones. I wanted to see if I got one of the earlier numbers wrong.:(
