    Dave,

    Hope I can say this………..

    Living in America (ex pat), I am soooooo frustrated at trying to get onto the “puzzles” website. It takes hours of trying (seriously, this has gone on for far too long now…just what is the problem?) and then, I discovered this! Fab, fab & ultra fab!

    Loving you long time!

      Of course you can say it!

      Compliments are always welcome.

        How do you get to download the cryptics?

          Just click on the appropriate grid.

                Is this new? I was looking for your clues to today’s cryptic – have they vanished?

                  I’m still waiting for Tilsit to send them to me.

    I can’t accesss the Giank GK today. I’ve tried through this link as well as through the Cluedup website but with the same result – a black page. Is it just me or is anyone else having problems?? I got the cryptic through this link without any problem.

      I checked and it’s OK – I’ll email you a copy.

        Copy received – many thanks. Normal Saturday has been resumed – except I’ve already done the cryptic and I usually do the x words the other way around on a Saturday!! Still, a change is as good as a rest, or so they say!

                I agree but it’s an enjoyable passtime which most of us do anyway

    Hi Dave. As per the first comment from Amanda in the US, I did struggle with my subscription version when away in Canada. My folks live there, so the link is going to them right now. So yes, this “facility” is most appreciated.

    Thanks as always, hopefully will get to meet next Saturday,

    Paul.
