    So, with yesterday’s puzzle it took me at least four tries before I got the website to accept my solution, (I had solved the puzzle originally from the WPF GP originally and was trying to enter my solution from that grid, but different rows were marked for the solution key and I kept botching it).

    Today, that same problem got taken to a different level, since the grid is reflected across a diagonal compared to what the WPF GP had. It took me a moment to even realize it was, in fact, the identical puzzle.

    Anyway, thanks for the puzzles, Grant! I enjoyed this variation.
