I just have to say a big thankyou for bringing sudoku to Aus. I used to try the cryptic crosswords in the paper for my puzzle fix, but I just get frustrated with the double meanings. This logic thing is definately my cup of tea. Although its funny, some of my very smart friends who can knock over a cryptic in 10 minutes can't seem to wrap their heads around sudoku. I guess logic isn't their thing. And now I can quite easily tell them they aren't being logical, no matter what the situation is. Thanks again
