An excellent offering from Anax today. It seems that he is making his crosswords a bit more accessible, without the devilish twists of wordplay that have characterised his puzzles in the past. Although, having said that, I still have failed to understand one or two of the clues, a failure that will I’m sure be easily explained. Read the rest of this entry »

Uncle Yap.

This morning, as luck would have it, the area where my home is, suffered a power failure which was only restored at my 9am, two hours after the appearance of the puzzles. Apologies to the early birds … better late than never.

Financial Times 13963 Neo – The Grid/Clues

Apologies for the lack of a post. As of now, today’s FT puzzle hasn’t been posted online.  Could I please bother someone to send me a scanned copy at [email protected]  Thank you in advance.   Thanks for your contributions yesterday, but they were too late in the night (my time) for me to act on them.  It’s now Wednesday morning 0045 (FT time), and the FT Tuesday gremlin is still operative.  Imagine you travel in time to yesterday, and this is what you should’ve got: the grid in the link below, thanks to Thomas99 for pointing to an identical grid, and the clues in the comment below, thanks to Neo (hope you don’t mind, I’ve deleted the answers).  I’ve deleted all other comments: I hope the posters don’t mind.  Special thanks to Neb who valiantly typed out the clues in his comment.  Also Hi to Jan, who I hope hasn’t given up, and can now attempt the crossword.  Until the puzzle is posted online, who knows when, I hope this will do.  I have diligently avoided looking at any answer, and will still blog it later this morning.
