Foilman, is it possible to search through all the archive puzzles and create a "fastest monday puzzle ever", "fastest tuesday puzzle ever" etc...?

I could but I'm trying to steer clear of putting too many "best ever" stats on here... the whole aim was supposed to be "what's happened in the last 7 days" and nothing else, to keep things dynamic. Of course now we have a best-ever champion time and times for all old puzzles solved, so I've already deviated from that!

Ok, but is it possible to find out the fastest time ever? Has anyone broke the 1 min barrier?

No-one has yet achieved a time faster than 1 minute 15 seconds... currently held by both astrokath and procrastinator, with oyvind 1 second behind...

I have a 1.11 listed in the archives for monday 8th may, but I'm guessing that number must come from a repeat (in fact it must be, becuase I have a lower time for this monday as well, which was definitely from the second time through)?  I often end up re-doing them later in the week when I get round to doing the "wrongs" (which I'm still totaly crap at!)

Yes, archived puzzles don't count, because by then the solution is available and someone could be just copying it out! So best times are only recorded during the week the puzzle is "live".

Aaaargh! and I let her keep her share, too. I messed it up and had to restart. It definitely took less than a minute the second time through, but that just doesn't count.

...Until Tzukanion got round to doing this monday's puzzle.  Well done!

The new time to aim for is 1.12

That should go today - wish I'd known how easy it was and waited to do it without a hangover, I didn't imagine a Tuesday could be such an opportunity.

I should try doing it AFTER my morning coffee, and not before...

Aaargh, you didn't listen! That's exactly what my post was intended to prevent.

And now that's gone, too. I think your thread must have inspired us, Helge.

Shame I floundered around for so long before I saw the obvious way to solve the top right (and pressed Done before putting in the last two lines), I really should have gone under 5 today.

Yes, you should!  
Saturday is definitely doable in well under the 5min mark

What did procrastinator get it down to a bit later in this thread?
[edit - looks like 5.29, so a Huzzah! from me is in order ]

Anyway, we can probably knock a few more seconds off today.
