I looked everywhere for the Club 49 topic and couldn't find it.  So here it is.

Woohoo.  Finally made it.

Me too. Entered Club 59 just 2 days back. This seems to be an easy week.

I'm just gonna ignore the fact that this may be the easiest week ever, as evidenced by everyone else also breaking multiple barriers, and revel in Club-49-ness, five days after joining Club 59.

Well done! I put in the welcome message yesterday, but you're the first to see it.

Nice touch!  I hope I get to see a Club 39 welcome someday.  But first I'll have to get back into Clubs 59 and 49, ...

Finally got back to club 49, but it's a little depressing when look at the leaderboard and you need to be in club 39 to get close to the top ten.

I'm 31 seconds off... which is a bit of a bugger. Supposed to be out drinking tonight but I might take it easy so I can have a chance of joing the club.

That's terribly sad isn't it.

Particularly when you could just do the puzzle once you'd recovered

Work avoidance tactics; I always do the puzzles mid morning. You're right though, it would make more sense.

Yeah, I saw that. I don't think I could click every line in the solution in 47s without practice. It's not normal...

When I go that fast, I'm not actually conscious of where I'm clicking; I leave my hand to do that on auto-pilot while my brain is a few steps ahead solving the next part of the puzzle. Happily, if my brain gets far enough ahead, it can reorder the list of clicks I'm yet to make so that my hand doesn't have to travel as far.

But I can't will my mind into this state, it just happens occassionally. Shame, because I click far more accurately when that happens and don't have to go back and fix clicking errors. Or perhaps I can only work like that on days when my clicking is bang-on.

I wonder if anyone else feels themselves doing that?

I've never been far enough ahead of myself to adjust the clicking order to minimise the distance I have to move - you must be in some sort of zen trance! The nearest I get to that is when I'm filling in a pattern I'm used to and I try and work out which lead to follow next - it's usually instinctive rather than calculated in my case.

Yeah... No idea what you're goin' for there. But I belong in this club now!! I think we should have a club house and a secret hand shake and a bar and a butler and no 39ers and 19ers (procrastinator) can come in.

If there's a bar just try and stop me.
