Either an ALS w-wing or Conjugate Linked ALSs. Unfortunately I'm 1 SIS over budget

### Re: There Was a Time: 04/02/13

I'll take a punt at this before I'm off to bed.

Considering the potential 45 DP r56c47 can we write (6=45) r56c4 - DP - (45=16) r456c7 => -6 r5c8; stte

Is that a 2-SIS move or a forcing net ?

I don't like hair-splitting, but, this is a 5-SIS whatever you want to call it as the ("native") SIS are the 5 cells R56C47+R4C7.
The so called referred to "2-SIS" are in fact 1 derived SIS + 1 native SIS.

My use of "2-SIS" could easily be incorrect. I should have said "2-SI" to match what I was thinking.

However, I refuse to identify the full UR in the solution when I've already marked it in the grid. What I did was separate the candidate cells on the left side of the second SI from the candidate cells on the right side. Thus, r5c7 is repeated.

BTW: the UR candidates are always the candidates not mentioned in the cells identified as part of the UR.

Congratulations on finding this unusual solution.

Because no one mentioned the DP45 version with external candidates 4r2c4, 4r23c7:
