Happy New Year, LTPF friends.

With a new year comes a new chatroom thread. Let's get it rolling.

Happy new year! How did your year start?
Mine started with the cat bringing a mouse uninjured into our bedroom. After many attempts to corral it using a broom and sheets of cardboard, I managed to chase it into a slipper and carry it out.

Happy new year to my fellow puzzlers! 2016 was a rocky and difficult year for me, but I hope that 2017 will treat me better. After a longish absence, I'm back at the LTPF, and I promise this won't be a one-month stint after which I disappear into darkness again. No, this time I'm here to stay. <3

Good to hear, Doriana!

For myself, 2016 was a pretty good year, thankfully!

Happy new year, LTP fans!

I'm on holiday in the tropical North. The weather is impeccable, but internet connectivity is pretty spasmodic.

This morning, I spent three quarters of an hour helping a family of tourists whose SUV had got stuck in the sand on Ninety Mile Beach. Later this afternoon, I found the same car stuck in a ditch an hour and a half North of our first rendezvous.

I briefly saw the welfare state through a conservative's eyes.

Not a birthday, but an anniversary nonetheless: Mrs. WiZ and I have been married for 6 years today. We have had the house to ourselves, so we are taking advantage of this and spent all of yesterday baking, and all of today eating. Mmm.

I can get into the Chatroom here but I can't get to the active puzzles. It just takes me back to the old front page. Can anybody help. It certainly looked as though the DNS was down earlier.

I had an email from Paul yesterday evening to say that he had his Tech guy working on the problem. It all seems to be working this morning so well done that man.

Something I'm enjoying on the forum at the moment is the rather witty ways people are finding to mark their puzzle as solved. Keep it up folks.

I'm sure people from Atlanta are feeling pretty deflated right now. Incredible game.

I agree on both counts! Atlanta is a young team, they'll have another chance.

Balin will be very happy I'm sure. I don't think I've ever seen a quarter and a bit of sport where every little break went for one team. Not saying they were lucky , but there was probably 10 plays where even a slightly different outcome would have meant an Atlanta victory.

Oh I am very happy.

I went to the victory parade yesterday; never been to one before. It was crowded and freezing, and I loved it.

Forgotten Puzzle

Postby trebor » Fri Feb 10, 2017 6:27 am

I can't remember who posted it or what the title was, but does anyone remember a puzzle from, I think, last year (certainly before I joined) that was something along the lines of, "Brian is having a great day! He just got a promotion at work...." and then goes on to him being saved by a stranger from being hit by a car, and then later that day he kills the stranger, kills a vendor on his street, and then travels across the country and kills his boss. Am I losing my mind? Did that puzzle exist? And if so, what was it called? I would love to read through it, as I never saw the $poiler.

That puzzle definitely existed, I looked for it too and cannot find it. I'd also love to learn the solution!

Thanks, RedWine! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I remember reading a few posts in one day and coming back a while later to find that I couldn't find the thing! It was such a brilliant set-up, too! This has been an Earhart-level mystery for me ever since.

As far as I remember, it was Konnie's puzzle, "There is nothing wrong with a dark puzzle", or similar title. I'd love to know the solution.
