This livejournal will remain as my personal blog site, and will regain some of the character it has lost in recent years. It will still have some reviews of puzzle hunts and competitions, comments on life and sports, and so on. I might even make bold political statements, like "some Americans worry that allowing gays to marry will weaken traditional marriages; I think the real threat to such families will come from cheap, readily accessible (prenatal) genetic testing that will shed light on character flaws far removed from any discussion of sexuality."
But there will no longer be any weekly puzzles here. Please add or relink to my rss feed (http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/feed/
So this, the first puzzle at the new site, will also be the last puzzle here: a Countdown to 2013 Sudoku.
Rules: Place a single digit from 1 to 9 into each cell so that no digit repeats in any row, column, or region.
