RYAN FALEY'S OBSCURE PUZZLE BLOG!
I don't want to get in the habit of distracting you with random irrelevant links, but Ryan Faley's most recent puzzle is an impressive crossword construction titled "Block Letters". I hereby order you to check it out and solve it. Go. Now.

I'M A WORLD RECORD HOLDER!
I don't want to get in the habit of distracting you with random irrelevant links, but I have recently placed membership on the RecordSetter website where people submit their own world records (despite the paradoxical reasoning which renders the website completely pointless). I took it upon myself to break the world record for the fastest Othello game, and I now officially hold that record! Expect me to make and break more board game-related records soon. Special thanks to Jeffrey Kight for being a fun presence at the biweekly board game gatherings at PrimeTime Family Entertainment Center (yay, something exciting in Abilene!) and giving me the Othello game for use in this record attempt, and to Erich Friedman for encouraging us mathematically-minded folks to optimize board games. My next goal is to beat the checkers world record of 46.50 seconds; care to beat me to it?
