I solved the today puzzle : saturday 25 October 2009
And my solution isn't accepted (usual message "it hasn't been solved yet !").

But it seems to me that my solution is absolutely valid : look at it !

It is not the first time I notice such a problem... and it always drives me crazy !

Any help ? Is the puzzle bugged (2 or more solutions) or what ?

Thanks

Two things:
First of all, your solution is not valid, and the puzzle worked fine for me. In fact, if you pause for a moment and look at it again, you should immediately see the fault in your solution. (Hint: Your solution contains more than one loop.)
Secondly, if you create a thread discussing a current weekly puzzle, please select the appropriate puzzle when creating the thread. Right now, you have basically posted a (albeit wrong) solution to a current weekly puzzle, which is...bad.

EDIT: If you actually use colouring, you should really pay attention to it. In your solution, a loop is completely surrounded by red - that's not supposed to happen, that's the whole point of colouring...

OK...
Effectively, my mistake is obvious.
Sorry for posting such a basic question. 

Anyway, thanks for your help
