05:16. Nice theme with clean solve. A bit rough, but expected for a Thursday I suppose, so well done.
This looked quite intimidating, but went very smoothly. Beautiful puzzle!
It’s always a bit jarring for me when the skyscrapers logic solves and I have to switch to magic square, feels so slow then.
