Re: Anyone good at sudoku here?

Wait, so you guys take notes? Did knock and SveinR also use them for the evil puzzle? I thought it's considered kinda lame since the process becomes a lot more mechanical and less about using your head well (and also Hikaru Nakamura said that it's for losers or something :D). Or is it the standard a...

I just want to ask about this site: https://www.websudoku.com/ I've been solving here for a while.

Re: Happy New Decade From the Future!

Usually 1990-1999, but I thought that's technically incorrect?

At least one problem with counting this way is that it means the first decade consisted of only 9 years since there was no AD 0. Seems pretty weird to have an incomplete decade.

Is there a term for "false decade" then? I know that technically you're right, but I still want to have some way to refer to 2020-2029 instead of 2021-2030, as the first feels aesthetically neater.
