I just heard or at least just think I heard that someone with too much spare time has created a math formula with which people can quickly solve sudoku puzzles.
Doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of working a puzzle?
Seems to me puzzles are meant to pass the time while challenging us to think. If I can plug in a formula and work the puzzle without...well...puzzle-ing over it....I may as well buy puzzle books in which the puzzles are already solved.
I guess I'm just an old fashioned process person.
Is the top of the mountain ever really as interesting as the climb?
