I've been on holiday for three weeks - I have become useless at this game, I had to use "fix position" on today's puzzle! All that hard work, gone to waste.

Anyone got any ideas how long it takes to get the skills back?

I am/was about the same level as you are and was off the internet for 3 or 4 weeks when I moved house.
When I came back I was useless but got a personal best within a fortnight.  I'd gone back and completed the weeks I'd missed (A weeks worth of puzzles per sitting) as training.

Then again I also turned 28, the Golden Age of Kwontom Loop, so I was bound to get better

Ah... that explains why I'm not getting as many top times these days - I'm 29 now.

The golden age was 28 a year ago... So I suppose it's 29 now. Or?

I also took a break of about three weeks for the holidays ... then I logged on tonight out of boredom and shot through all seven puzzles in a row ... and -

- bizarrely, set a new one-week personal best by over 25% off my previous best! (about 44 minutes down to about 32 minutes)

New strategy ya think?!
