Hi Dave

I use your blog each day to help me through the DT Cryptic which has been a really great help. However, today when I try to access its take me into an old style text page so cannot access anything. Lots of errors coming up. I've tried from my iPad, laptop and smart phone just in case it was one of my devices.

Hope it gets resolved soon.

Kind regards

I started doing cryptics in about 2012, getting a few obvious anagrams and the double definitions and not a lot more. I never got more half than finished. Then I discovered this blog and the tutoring began. I have learned a good many of the conventions and the some of the usual suspects as well as some of the old chestnuts (most of them deserve to be old because they are often very good). More importantly , I am doing much better now because my mind is trained to think in a certain way now. I don't think my vocabulary is any greater than before but somehow the words are more available to the conscious mind. None of the above would have happened had I not hit upon this blog. I am eternally grateful to all the bloggers and most importantly to Big Dave for setting up and maintaining this site. Solving cryptic crosswords is a wonderful pastime and sharing with others makes it better.
