The Puzzle Brothers will be in full effect at Stamford.
After several weeks of agonizing over whether to compete or not, I have chosen to compete again this year. My singular goal this year will be to finish better than last year - 184th place, mostly the result of a crash-and-burn on Puzzle #5 (which seemed to be a lot of people's problem) and a stupid mistake on Puzzle #1.
I did a bunch of puzzles this morning and was mostly pleased with my times. More intense training will begin shortly.
