    I cannot access Big Dave for my cryptic crossword from the Telegraph today. Do you know why this is please and can you get it to me some other way? Thanks in advance. Mitzi Walls

    I have been in despair for the last week as I have not been able to access the DT site at all, let alone get as far as logging in on it! As I spend a lot of time out of the country I cannot get a hard copy of the newspaper and so had not even visited the blog. So, logging on today to find the crosswords for the last few days here was a real bonus. I do not know who instigated this but thank you very much Dave. After the debacle of the last few months, perhaps the DT should send you the puzzles to publish and we’ll pay our subs to you :-)
    Thank you again

    I have managed to get on the site every time I clicked on it today. The first time just to see if I could; the second time to find out tomorrow’s Toughie setter and just now, twice in a row, just to see if it still worked. Could it be that now that hundreds and hundreds of people are logging on here to get the puzzles, the poorly site can cope with the reduced amount of people attempting to access it?

      Yesterday’s back-page puzzle was downloaded 250 times yesterday and a further 11 today. Typically the number of people who submit the puzzle online is 300-400, so, even allowing for a few freeloaders, there is some credence in this argument.
