I keep inchin' closer to a 59, but where am I supposed to shave 17 minutes off of my time when I just set my PB for a Sunday and tied it for a Saturday?
(Maybe I could just start up a club 78 for us under-achievers)

Make it 79 and I'm in ... although I think i've been as low as 68 - back a few weeks ago when both weekend puzzles were basically trivial - and hence only took me 15 minutes! (I click too slow - still yet to get a weekday time under 3minutes - even when its totally trivial)

Try the right click for the "x".  I just started using it recently and really like it.

It's taken me almost 300 puzzles to finally get into club 59.  This week I am 37 seconds short of club 49 but two weeks ago I couldn't even finish the Sunday puzzle.

I think sometimes my brain has a short circuit and simply stops working.

ARRRRGGGGG  -  Almost made it today - screemed through the puzzle, clicked done and an internal server error. Bugger!!!!!

Not sure I'll be able to improve on my friday's time - and I think i'll be lucky to get sunday's time again, so it will have to be a bit longer for me - but i'm working on it

I think firefox 2 might have fixed the 1x1.gif problem ... too early to tell for sure - unrelated to that I've made it into club 59, but if this 1x1.gif is really gone - I think I should be able to get under 50, maybe even 45.

Me too!!!!
It only took me 119 puzzles, but I finally got it.

Unfortunately I don't think I can keep it. My combined weekend time was 30m37s, and from what I hear from those of you setting records, it was a really easy weekend (not that I'm complaining, I'll take what I can get).

Apparently I was wrong.
I just bumped it down again, by like 5 minutes.
At this rate, I'll have all of you beaten in... never.

Finally made it... It's been driving me mad, I've started having dreams about loops.

Yes!  Finally!!  Took almost 300 puzzles but I made it.  Even broke the 2 minute barrier this week!

After last Saturday's DISASTROUS puzzle, this week has been so easy!  Blasted my PB time today - just hope tomorrow's puzzle is as intuitive then I stand a chance of getting into club 59.  PLEASE, PLEASE!

WHOOOOOOO!  I can't believe it... I'm in at 58m53s!

Apparently, since it's Finals Week, my brain is willing to concentrate on anything other than exams... KL included.

HURRAH!!!! Finally in, although close-run thing at the end - cannot believe how much I mucked up Fri and Sat puzzle - had to redo them both from the start - was dreaming of club 49 and got a bit over-enthusiastic I think!

Finally made it   I have no idea how people get much faster, though.  Even solving the same problem multiple times in a row I can never get below three minutes.  Guess I should buy a faster mouse.

even with a bad monday score, I just flew (by my standards) through tuesday and finally made it. Only took 189 puzzles to do it.

Managed to break that elusive hour barrier.  Only took 40 daily puzzles but a lot of practice on the early in the week puzzles in the archives to get some basic ideas down certainly was helpful.
