Re: Web based solver

Hi Robo, Thanks for the heads up on the pop up boxes, I missed that. Still, the Canis Major eliminations previously referred to just say that they don't fit into any valid combo of the relevant column. Whilst this is no doubt true, it sounds suspiciously like Trial and Error to me: assume the elimin...

Re: Web based solver

Hi Hone, perhaps I should apologise for being so thick and wasting your time. Since this is a new day I am a bit more awake and I simply put Canis Major into my solver to see what it did.

Re: Web based solver

Hi Robo, As I said in Andrew's Str8ts forum your solver appears to incorporate Trial and Error, which you can reduce the reliance on if you incorporate SI's. The term SI was coined by Ben. It refers to a short chain where the overall logic may less complicated that some single row/column elimination...
