Me > John Williams


All last week, accompanying my daily Sudoku puzzle was the time that WGM-AM 720’s DJ John William’s had completed the puzzle.

I smoked him, Monday-Thursday (Friday I drove to work, thus no RedEye, but I have little doubt that his time could be better than mine).

Let us compare times:

John Williams Me
Mon 9min 6min
Tues 39min 19min
Wed 21min 13min
Thur 1hr 16min 27min

I hope this whole Sudoku thing isn’t just a passing fad – I’m actually good at this, not to mention I seriously SUCK at the crossword puzzle.

Oh, and what’s up with people on the train who try and copy off me? Seriously?

    Me, too!

    I noticed that it took him 56 minutes or something for Friday’s. I did in McDonald’s while eating a light lunch. 20 minutes tops. Is he writing a novel on the side while he does it, or what?

    I think it is a passing fad. After you figure out the main plays, it’s just a matter of record keeping and applying a little logic.

    I’ve been charitably thinking that maybe he has kids who run around the kitchen table while he’s trying to solve the puzzle. I might know the actual answer if I ever listened to his program, but that’s not gonna happen. And yeah, he sucks at Suduko.

    — but you can say the same thing about Tetris (sorta) and I still play that.

    Never liked Tetris. I’m not bored of Sudoku yet, though. I do it at work. It LOOKS like you are working, if you do it right.
