Dead tree solving - eco edition! 
Best of both worlds - paper and pencil/pen solving, but rather than curled up with the newspaper, you're curled up with your tablet/iPad/Android! Write, even draw, in the grid, directly on the screen. 

Perfect for rebus puzzles, like this one from a recent Thursday NYTimes puzzle. Use a stylus, for the feel of really writing, or just use your fingertip - it is remarkably easy and is your real writing... I filled this one out using my finger - the stylus is just there for show. (The rebus was MAN - as in TAXMAN at 54D...) If you would like to try it out, click on "About Me" on this page and send me an email.

ACPT 2013 - look out!

Does a little bit of one's soul get imparted when autographing something?
If so, bring it on in 2013!

Armed with this newly anointed puzzle tablet, how can I lose?

Thanks to all the good-natured celebrities who stood around and signed autographs.  Be you winners, constructors, editors, hats off to you, and thanks for making crosswords even more fun for the rest of us!

(I even let Dr. Fill sign!!)

  1. I'm interested in Dr. Fil's persona, especially after he didn't do as well as he'd hoped in the competition.
