THE THURSDAY 6/24/10 Puzzle
More AcrossLite / applet fail...
I got a heads-up from the NYT: "Thursday June 24 ... In the print version, some squares that would seem to require numbers do not have them. In Across Lite, the numbers appear in the squares but the clue is simply a hyphen. (Across Lite can’t handle a completely blank clue.) This makes the clue numbering different in the print vs. electronic versions. The solving experience is barely affected (it’s somewhat more elegant in print) but discussions of clues in the blog might confuse readers who don’t know that the numbers differ."
So expect my numbering of clues to be off for you paper solvers tomorrow. Audible sigh.
