This seems to have been taken near Cleveland, Ohio.
It is not seawater, but lake water.
It is near the Coast Guard Station.

I wish I knew how this puzzle was shared around the world so much that the puzzle site became so widely used.
I wish I really did have permission to share this image....

Both of you are better than my time. I am just not a leaderboard type of puzzler. -Sherry 8-}

Joan_2

My best time is 1:05.
I will never get on the Leaderboard with that attitude!

patsquire

Ha! Sue1, what a coincidence, my best is 1:23 and I've done it dozens of times. :-)

potatomum66

I see this has popped up again! So fun to keep adding to the chain!!!

RandomWorship

Best I can manage is 1:08 on this. Now if it was a kaleido, I'd do much better!! (❛ᴗ❛)

sue1

My best is 1:24...a long way down the line. Another 50,000+ this year. Thought I'd add another solve to your puzzle, Joan.

ringleader

You must have added comment number 500 Joan. How appropriate on your puzzle!!!

Joan_2

I know. also see how many comments there are?
501 at this point.
That is more comments than really well solved puzzles usually get.

ringleader

Ha, Joan. My best time is 1:43. If you come look on my computer you'll see it . Do you realize that in the past ten hours it has had 68 solves? Most of my puzzles don't get that many solves in total. LOL

Joan_2

Ardy, you aren't on the board so I don't believe you that you have solved this puzzle ! ! !

(Silly me!)

ringleader

Lajuin, there were over 5000 solves since 24 Sept. Just no comments before yours for October. LOL

Sandi, It's 1, 590,221 You must be tired and interposed numerals.

SandiT

1,509,212. Still a wonderful solve after all this time!

lajuin

Noticed that there were no solves in October, so decided to remedy that.

leslieg

In 2013 I was in the top 10. In 2014 the list was extended to 15 and I was still in. Isn't time to extend the list to include the top 20? My best time is :50--so are there a kajillion :49s?

ringleader

Thought I would make it 1584890 but by the time I finished it was ...91.

Joan_2

67 solves in 15 hours....

SandiT

1,580,032 and on and on it goes!

ikook

Tried to make the 1580000th solve, but I'm 1580001.
Did improve my best score by 2 seconds; now 1:08.

Wow so many solves. Truly amazing. Smiles

Joan_2

Dear Sweet Marlene, I had a great birthday, thanks.
My children and grandchildren paid me lots of wonderful attention.
That is all I really ever want from them, attention that is, not gifts or things!

SWEETMARLENE1944

Hello Dear Joan2, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, A Little Late. BUT I Hope You Had A Wonderful Day & Many More To Follow. I Hope The Coming Year Is A Happy & Healthy One. Congratulations On Your Great Puzzle, What A Achievement. Well Done. All The Best, Marlene.

Joan_2

I just did my best time EVER. I did 1:05!

Joan_2

Life on Jigidi IS great.
You are welcome, SandiT and all you all out there!

SandiT

Solver number 1,563,017 and my best time yet, 1:19. Thanks, Joan454. Have a happy day!

I too thank you for this unbelievable puzzle...I solve it almost daily and often 2 or 3 times....
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday...isn't life on jigidi great....

linda1802

Wow, another 200 solves in the last 21 hours, from 1,561,244 to 1,561,444. That's a great birthday present for you, Joan.
This puzzle has been going since January 2011, that's a puzzle life of over 5 years and still counting!
I keep trying, but my best time so far is 1:09.
Like so many Jigidi friends, I have this wonderful puzzle bookmarked, and perhaps, perhaps, I'll get on the leaderboard one day.
I hope you had a great birthday, Joan. Thank you for this great puzzle and many thanks, too, to the original photographer. It's a great shot.

I love this photo too, & am solving it again, just for fun! xxx

Joan_2

Wow, I am getting LAZY. I just took 1:25 to solve my puzzle.
Thanks for the Birthday Wishes Sandy, Ringleader, Gardening205 and all my friends out in Jigidi Land.

SandiT

Happy Birthday, Joan. I solved this again to help you celebrate your birthday. Like, Ardy, I keep it in my bookmarks and solve it periodically. I never tire of its beauty. Have a wonderful birthday!

ringleader

In honor of your birthday, Joan, I have added another solve so that it is now 1,561,319. I keep this in my bookmarks and check it occasionally. I've solved it several times through the past three plus years. Have a wonderful birthday.

Hi Joan - I lost track of this puzzle with the changes last year. I see that it is still being solved, but not as much conversation.

RandomWorship

Hi tinlizzie. It's probably the flash player plugin you need. You can get it here:
https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Good luck! (❛ᴗ❛)

You know, there are 5 days (OK, 5 1/2) until this puzzles 5th birthday! Who wants to see how many solves we can get by then?! currently 1,538,893

Where can I find Snow Village @ Almond? :)

Mileana1

I guess everyone that does any amount of puzzles might probably run into this one. I completed it 01/10/2016. Sherry (aka Mileana, Mileana1, clarkmega). 8-}

Fishes

It's a great puzzle. Snow village @Almond.

Biscotto

Clive: I had a look at Jumble's red bike and I posted the same puzzle @ Biscotto - 70 pieces on 13th July 2015. It got 434 solves only... Jumble's is 96 pieces and got 573 solves! I have a few puzzles at more than 600 solves, but nothing like my Snow Village @ Almond! (almost 900 as we speak).

CJ45

LOL!!!

SYCAMORE

I guess I'm losing it Clive, as it appears I did that puzzle...sure don't remember doing it! LOL

Thank you Clive...going to check it out right now! :o)

Of course I must now ask what the "red bike" puzzle is...thank you very much Jumble and Clive...you know curiosity killed the cat! :o)

BlueTiger

Well, I've pushed it up to 1,537,600 solves on 1/6/16 with a scorching fast time of 3:30! What fun!
This is comment # 432.

Kw3sta

Down to 1:29 after who knows how many tries. This is solve #1,537,591. That's more than 10,000 solves in the last 45 days.

niccolino59

Just given it another solve and it's still fascinating and enjoyable. 1:51 05 Jan 2015.

CJ45

Thank you Irene now they should look at your red bike puzzle. LOL!!

Jumble

Clive I like Almond's puzzle you recommended to Sycamore. ☺

CJ45

Oh dear, Irene is it that long ago that this puzzle was presented.

Jumble

It's been nearly 5 years since this was posted, and people are still solving it. 5th Jan. 2016 - 1537359

SYCAMORE

Patricia's (Almond/Biscotto/biscottino) Snow Village puzzle has 800+ solves and Clive (CJ45) mentioned this puzzle and was kind enough to send me the link...can't believe how many solves it has! Beautiful picture and fun to do! I'm not into how fast I can complete a puzzle, just enjoy doing them.

Here's the link to Almond's Snow Village puzzle in case anyone is interested:
http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=J6YRF6R2

patsquire

I think it's the most-solved puzzle IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD!

I've suggested repeatedly that they submit it to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Jumble

Just out of interest, is this the most solved puzzle on this site? If so, does anyone know which one is second?

patsquire

I've contributed many, many solves over the years but I've given up racing. My best is 1:23 and since it's nowhere close to getting into even this extended leaderboard, now I just do it for fun once in a while. :-)

Jumble

It's amazing that the solves still keep going, lets hope it reaches the 2M. I'm stuck on 1.15

ekopug1

Joan, I'm stuck at 1:16 too . . . for the moment - down from 1:53.

CJ45

LOL!!! joan what a tickle I was there for the 1M hope to be there for the 2M Just spoke to another jigidi,er. Jumble you might like to look her up. Clive.

joan454

Hey, it's my puzzle and I only ever get as fast as 1:16.

CJ45

Hi Piros, my mouse is red hot (underneath) but together we have only reached 2:08.

A lot of it is initial piece placement... which is random luck... and the rest is how well you can remember the picture while looking at the pieces (which is the problem for me and I managed 0:51 a few times last year)...

...I have no proof of this, but I imagine having an iPad to play on for touch controls might improve times too... compared to mouse responsiveness... I'm not buying an iPad just for Jigidi tho :P

ladywil2

I tried it again 1:44. How can the people on the board do it so fast?? This is comment #414

linda1802

I just tried again. 1:20. Pathetic compared with the scores on the leaderboard. Wow!

BlueTiger

Hi, everybody! Right now, I am 1,527,595th solver of this amazing puzzle. And this is the 412th comment!

I guess I'll see all of you again when we get up to the 2,000,000th solve. Take care! ;-))

Kw3sta

1:48 for my 1st solve , # 1,527,559 :-) Better late than never.

Believe it or not, I remember seeing this when it first came out. After some deliberation I decided not to solve it. Thanks to oddio for bringing this to my attention! Oddio, if you see this comment, please reply. LOL.

leslieg

I want to see the list go to top 20 because I'd be back on it!

beatiful

patsquire

Right Piros, and we each get our fun out of Jigidi in our own way!

I know pat... I just like making estimates... this puzzle STILL averages more solves a day than most puzzles get ever

katwoody99

Adding to the solve count, again! Doesn't look like I'll ever get under a minute on this one but I don't get tired of trying! :-))

CJ45

Never mind snooker think how joan454 feels you can always wait for the 2 millonth solve LOL!!! and I will be me this time.

Think TPTB figured 15 would be more appropriate for 1 million solves. :) btw spammenot and I both saw the 1 millionth solve and thought we had it but they gave it to the unregistered person.

ekopug1

Thank you CJ and Snooker! :)

CJ45

Thank you snooker at least some one knows we were waiting.

EP, 15 slots were put up when it hit 1 million.

CJ45

Well there you go have been on jigidi for years but only registered when I gave up full time work.
Lots of people do not register so it could have been anyone. Thanks for dropping by.

ekopug1

I have no idea, CJ but did see the comment by Magnus about the unregistered user. You????

CJ45

Hi EP if you do wade through there is an unknown person at 1 million guess who it was.

ekopug1

I'm doing my part . . . I've finally cracked 2:00 but it will be a while before I'm on the board. This is the only puzzle on Jigidi I've seen where the leaderboard has 15 slots. I'm sure there is a story behind that in the comments but I have not waded through all of them.

patsquire

Luckily Piros, life doesn't *actually* revolve around Jigidi! Not quite anyway!

We're slowing down guys... averaging 5400 solves / month since reaching 1.5 million... at this rate we won't see 2 million until May 2023... nearly double my estimate back in December :(

SandiT

1521434! Still beautiful!

CJ45

Hi joan454, now at 1,521,431,

ekopug1

I was just led to this puzzle. I've never seen a puzzle with so many plays or comments. Amazing! I've done it once . .. my score: 2:11. Hmmm, I bet I can beat that number . . .

patsquire

See? I was right......I was sound asleep. Here I am checking on it, and it's 1,500,312!

Nevertheless, CONGRATULATIONS EVERYBODY!!!

Trouble_and_Frog

Good job TIME4ME . . . :-)

Good for you!

tigress

Way to go, TIME4ME! I was 1,500,003. :-))

I was .....001. Who got it?

TIME4ME

Eeeeeeeeeekkkk !!! 1500000 !!!

tigress

27 more solves to go. :-)

leslieg

Wasn't laurajane's time the one that was missing for a while?

patsquire

Or more likely, I'll be sound asleep and snoring up a storm when it goes blasting past the magic number. But that's OK, there'll always be a new magic number to pursue.

patsquire

I know what you mean. For the last couple of weeks I've been solving it every once in a while. I even got lucky one time and improved my time from 1:28 to 1:23! One-two-three has a nice ring to it, so I guess I'm done racing on this puzzle.

HEY! I just realized something. EVERYBODY'S going to want to be the one who does solve number 1,500,000 so as it gets close more and more people are going to be solving it. And when it gets REAL CLOSE they'll be so many of us solving it that we might not even SEE IT at 1,500,000. We might solve it, and look, and it'll be 1,500,007 or something!

linda1802

Me too. ☺☺☺

RandomWorship

You inspired me to add another solve, Pat. (•‿•)

patsquire

We're getting there now! Only 188 more solves to a MILLION AND A HALF!

I dunno... leaderboard doesn't change much... pretty sure its unchanged since I made my contribution back in November/December... my 0:51 is still only 1 second short of the board

leslieg

Just thought about this puzzle tonight. I took a picture of it because the next time I look I probably won't be on the board. A belated Happy Birthday, Joan!

I helped,...again!

I think I have done this puzzle before, when you first posted it,this is gorgeous. I love doing all water puzzle's!!

sue1

OK I was wondering what was going on, because the last few times I've visited you've been there. I was just curious.

Should clarify that a bit. Did it 10+ times today and best I got was 1:01 twice, 1:02 and 1:03 also.

Have been on the board for ages, Sue.

sue1

Snooker - it shows you at 47 seconds on the leader board??

1:01 was the best out of over 10 tries. Have a great birthday, Joan.

ladywil

I forgot that I did not use this profile for solving. Happy birthday again and I made it 1.487.252.

By way of contrast, folks, here's a puzzle that's just as much fun (maybe more) that's been up on Jigidi for almost as long as this one:

www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=6V5FBY27

What's the contrast? "Metrognome" only has 137 solves in all that time! Try it!

myladydanes

Second try 1:14 4/3/15 ;o)

patsquire

Ahhhhh, frozen lake water (fresh water, not salt water) would seem to make more sense. I'm glad we found out. Thanks!

Lyndee there's nothing to be ashamed of with a time of 1:27. I've been doing this puzzle off and on for over 3 years and your time is one second faster than my best time!

niccolino59

Sorry to only come across this now (why didn't I know about it before?!) Didn't make the board at 2:01 (I'm notoriously slow), but I was the 1475200th to solve it! Will email it out to a few friends.

ikook

1456250 solves
my best 1:11

RandomWorship

Still and all. 10k solves a month! That's AMAZING! And I agree about the fall of the pieces. Sometimes you're lucky - sometimes not so much. We'll keep trying to get on that board though!

I think 2 million is doable... but it'll be awhile... the solves are slowing... according to a post further down the numbers were 1.14m 1/19/2013... 1.34m 1/19/2014 and now 1.45m 12/19/2014... looks like solves have dropped from 16.6k/month to 10k/month

new expected 2m date: July 2019

...

As to solve time, for me, so much of my time is based on starting piece position... less overlap and closer connects speeds up my time... and a little luck with the 3rd and 4th rows

RandomWorship

Keep going Piros! And we'll make 2 million yet! (•‿•)

PS Best I've got so far is 1:10. But I'll keep trying!

Sooo close... I've gotten 0:51 once and 0:54 to 1:14 a ton of times since finding this an hour ago.

Charlotte

Good point, patsquire. Someone ought to do that :) The world's most solved jigsaw puzzle?

patsquire

I've been doing this puzzle for years and I've never come anywhere near the leaderboard. In fact, if I took a full 30 seconds off my best time I still wouldn't make it! But I keep coming back and pitching in. Who knows where it will end?

AND DID ANYBODY EVER SUBMIT THIS TO THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS?

sue1

No one has repositioned Roxanne's name. She was first for so very long at 41 seconds (I think) and now her name has been somehow removed. It is so unfair.

ladycharnley

Woo hoo well done Cyprien - 45 seconds congratulations m'dear well done ......

joan454

This puzzle has more comments than most puzzles have solves!

What's crazy is, this puzzle still gets 50 and up hits a day...

GO joan54...

Beekay

Isn't this crazy Sara! You and I are the last two to find this puzzle. I just noticed the leaderboard lists the top 15 solvers rather than 10, and I'm still way too slow to be on it :-)

I just found this puzzle a few days ago while inquiring to 'JIGIDI' about the most solves
I will certainly do my part to keep it going toward 2 mil.....
Amazing...like it took on a life of its own..
good luck...

Beekay

3 years!! Good grief...and I just stumbled on it...I wonder if anyone else will LOL

Maybe some others should try asking TPTB. I am pretty sure her score was 41. 1,390,500.

And yes, what did happen to Roxanne's time?

like92115

Glad to see the score going up and up - looking at 1.4 million - congrats Joan!

I e-mailed TPTB weeks ago and never got an answer.

sue1

I still wonder what happened to Roxanne's time????

leslieg

The numbers were 1388388! I repeated my best score today. Usually I do worse. So why is that?

leslieg

I like the numbers here.

puzzeljac

Great that it still is going on☺

joan454

good question for Magnus, Snooker.

Does anyone know why Roxanne is no longer on the board? Think her time was 41 seconds.

Joan_2

only 127,601 more solves to a million and a half!

10,000 in 23 days.

joan454

Chugging along to a million and a half !

joan454

All puzzles will break into different pieces every time it is chosen to solve.
I think solving time is affected by the piece shapes.

Never noticed that before but you are correct.

leslieg

I just noticed today that the pieces on this one change shape from try to try. I, too think I've done this 1,000 times! I wonder if Magnus has that stat??

1,344,000 Jan.22/2014. Think I've done this sucker about 1000 times. :)

Jan 19, 2013: 1,144,449
Jan 19, 2014: 1,341,823 (1,342,214 now on Jan 19)

Almost 198,000 solves in the last year. Say roughly 200,000 in a year. 3 1/3 years at this pace for 2,000,000.

One day at a time...

And you know, we're still solving it at the same time as others. I just solved at -xxx127 and when I finished it was at -xxx130!

I had a hard time locating this in my file but glad to see the list was extended to include top 15 solvers! I was in the top ten the last time I did it.

Most puzzles get solved a few dozen times a day, some a couple of hundred. Even after over 2 1/2 years, this puzzle is getting solved almost 1,500 times a day, every day!

Very nice video, thank you Francine :-)))))

My best was 1:24. I sort of hate that Roxanne's time which stood for so long has moved to 2nd place. But at least the 1st place person has a star. I think Magnus said that the millionth solver was an unsigned in guest. Sigh.

My, oh, my!

The Animal Rescue site also sells goods, naturally, and each sale earns more contributions. Also there are made in America sections and fair traded sections for those who like to support those causes. I have ordered and find the merchandise reasonably priced and good quality.

octomom

Kittystaff is correct. These are legitimate sites and do wonderful work. Keep clicking away. 781,430,100 pieces of kibble have been donated to shelters since April 1, 2008. Here's one of the sites:

http://www.freekibble.com/

You can answer a trivia question, but it doesn't matter if you answer it correctly. The donation still stands.

Another is:
http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=3

I like the former site better since there aren't so many advertisements flashing in your face on the site.

patsquire

Holy mackerel, late to the party!

I've been away visiting family, and then brought home a nasty flu, so I haven't been around much.

But better late than never:

WE DID IT!!! (I helped a little.)

Call the Guinness Book of World Records, somebody! They've gotta give this one a prize.

I am aware of the Animal Rescue click and the Kibble rescue and I know that these are legitimate. They are both rated in the top 10 of animal rescue operations nationwide. I do not blame you for being skeptical but at least these two are legit.

Joan_2

I am inclined to disbelieve the internet postings that say if you click here they will benefit a charity. I doubt that works. I think it is just a scam to get you to click and then they can access your computer.
-sign me "miss skeptical"

Dohun

I wouldn't mind at all doing a puzzlle two or three times a day if it serves a good purpose, I do it now just for fun, so much better doing it for something worthwhile. And we share the same problem Plink, I also spend far too much time here :))), as you say it's so much more interesting than boring work, where of all places could the two of us have met and started to talk to each other if not here. :))
Thanks for your comment to my comment LOL

plink

Dohun, I'd work puzzles to raise money for World Hunger Relief, or Habitat for Humanity, or Heifer International, or any other worthy cause!!! I'd get up early in the morning and stay up late at night working puzzles if it would benefit somebody in need. As it is, I'm on jigidi more than I "should be" anyway! :) It's so much more interesting than cleaning out closets... ha.

Dohun

I love Joan's tree it's beautiful but Quazar's picture is much easier to solve, I suppose much more people would do it over and over again. As the million times has already been achieved it also would be difficult to get it done again only for this reason alone. Somebody was talking about a sponsor and any noble cause. We are all much more inclined to do something if there is some kind of reward at the end. :)), but I don't know anything about sponsors or the like.

Roxanne

WOW!! Joan! I know when you first posted this puzzle you had no way of knowing how many times it would be solved! Kudos to you my dear!! :)

Like it better. Would there be a copyright or whatever you call it since it is somebody's painting?

http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=J6OAQFBU is colorful and only one more piece than the legend... check it out!

Joan_2

The symmetree is actually rather simple.
The dinner on the dock is so very like this one, though.

Has 54 pcs. and that may be too many for a lot of people to try over and over. Lovely picture though. I must have done yours well over 200 times, Joan, and I know I would not do this one that many.

Oh, and SharonAnn beat me over there, too! :)

Dinner on the dock - a million times? They'll run out of blackened trout! 1:40 so far

buckeye425

This is fabulous! Congratulations Joan!

robf

Lajuin, when it's your idea you become the spokesperson! a) look at all your favourite pictures and choose one. b) Make it 35 pieces or fewer, please! c) if we simply go for a million again, wouldn't it be like becoming the second person to climb Everest? So maybe attach it to a cause, like a sponsored walkathon: donate to a pot held in trust, and when the million is reached, the money is released to the cause.
Choose something that everyone can support. I know we can do it, if it's worthwhile!

Dohun

It is wonderful to see how many people have helped to solve this puzzle a million times, congratulations Joan and thank you for a lot of fun and excitement.

Magnus, thank you as well for enlarging the board to show the top 15. Would you have any interest in displaying a flag beside each logged-in player, to show our countries?

Congratulations!!!! What a wonderful way to bring people all over the world together!! Just tuned in to solve once more and saw the number had been reached.

:D

Probably passed out on the floor from the excitement.

Yes, it was! Hey, where's Joan? It's her puzzle!

Along with a guest from the sounds of it. It was fun anyway.

Yes it did. We obviously finished almost simultaneously!

Did it show 1000000 for you also spam? It did for me.

@ snooker: I agree. I came back from my last solve to see 1 million as well. According to Magnus, though, it wasn't either of us. That's okay. We're still good at causing trouble! ;>

Magnus: Murphy's Law. Oh well. Thanks for trying!

Guest just disappeared. Good.

I've removed 'guest' with the score of 30 seconds. I'm currently trying to locate an issue with the timer which causes the timer to stop. It's very rare, but when a puzzle has been solved a million time, it will happen a couple of times.

Pretty amazing project. And good publicity for Jigidi, too.

P.S. - the only time a non-signed-in member can appear on the list is if they are the fastest. They get listed as "guest".

Perhaps they're malachite or calcite, but I doubt they're erudite. Of course, they could be just plain H2O with a bit of sodium chlorite--I mean, chloride. Oh, wait, that's what the puzzle is made of.

lajuin

Psquare - I accept your withdrawal of your previous arguments. . . but were they erudite??

At the current rate it will be about June 2nd, but I expect sooner.

Wow--6 more worked it since my last post!

FOLKS! You're just too familiar with this thing. These times are impossible for part-timers and mere mortals to break into.

But I withdraw my erudite arguments (way down below) about why we'll never make it to 1,000,000. We're in the home stretch. GO, GO, GO!

Joan, This puzzle has hit the email rounds a couple of times and i know on my joke list, i have right at 150 people from around the world so, I have sent this puzzle twice when it came around so far.
Glad to see the site is supporting it's self. This is a good stress relief site!
Thank all the creators

sue1

I gave it another shot today, Joan, but 1:24 seems about the best I can do.

joan454

I forgot to tell you. The fact that this puzzle went viral has brought so much attention to the Jigidi site that the site is able to sell advertising and make enough money to support itself.

The site was previously supported by persons who chose to join and send money to the man who created and runs the programing. He also supported it himself from his own funds.

joan454

We are just having fun on the frozen seawater puzzle. It is normal for a puzzle to get 50 to 80 solves.
Some puzzles get a couple of hundred solves.
A rare few have had over 500 solves.
But this one went "viral" and it just keeps getting hits.
So, I just wondered, "would this puzzle ever get a million solves?".
So, we wait and watch, that's all. LOL

I saw the comments, is there something I'm missing as to why everyone wants to hit the million mark on this puzzle?
I mean, I'm hooked on it and probably play it 20+ times per day but, still don't understand the million. I am old and slow though. :)

By the Law of Diminishing Returns, the closer we get to 1,000,000 the fewer people will participate and the less frequently it will be solved.

By Einstein's Theory of Relativity the closer you get to the speed of light the more massive you become, until you can't accelerate any further or go any faster, so you can never reach the speed of light.

By the Law of Half every time you get half-way from where you are to 1,000,000, you still have half-way to go, and since there are infinite half-ways to go you can never get there.

AND FINALLY by the law of Democrats And Jesse Jackson you can win the early primaries by landslides and start piling up delegates for the presidential nomination, but as you actually start to become a possible nominee, Democrats vote for you less and less, until you come to a screeching halt.

So I say..............we'll never make it to 1,000,000!

as of January 18, 2012 there are 836474 solves

836474 / 365 = 2292 average solves per day

Wondering... will this get to 1 million solves?

just played it 2 times maybe a few more times before I get off work. Only about 170,296 left to 1mil . If I did 2k a day it would take me 85.148 days to get 170,296 complete! hehe

Super picture sure glad you posted it on jigidi forum or I would not know about it. Thanks again Joan good luck on your count

mariolyn, I have no idea where I found this. I had googled something and, having ADD, I went off on tangents and found this. But I don't know where.....

I had been solving this on and off for months, after I chanced upon it through a comment on one of Magnus' puzzles, I believe, but then it slipped my mind and fell further and further into the depths of my bookmarks. Thanks for the reminder, lajuin. I'll keep adding to the tally, even though the leader-board is out of reach!

Good luck .. just solved it 5 times .. need sleep .. may try again tomorrow .. :-)

You have passed that now. Good going.

joan454

3,512 only more solves and I hit 3/4 million solves

joan454

Almost 3/4 of a million solves . . . blink... blink...

sue1

That sounds like it's about right, 1500 a day or so maybe.

Hey gang I think the counter on this puzzle is broken 16 hours ago it was 723.003 Now it's 724,110 should check with the boss

Gaillou

I just did it again. Not quite as fast as Sue. 1:29 is my best time so far. Joan, your puzzle is absolutely amazing.

joan454

Go Sue, Go Sue, Go Sue...

sue1

Tried again, down to 1:24...still miles away from the list. 723,003 solves at the moment.

sue1

Congrats, Joan. I gave it another shot. Still at 1:47, miles too slow. LOL

VermontMeow

Well over half way there, Joan.

Got 695695. At least I'm adding to your number. :)

Almost got it! Was #666667.

Thank You For Creating Jigidi, Magnus, We Love This Site

sue49

Good, our Roxanne is back!!

Magnus

I've just discovered a bug in the database. The 63 years was wrong - it's only around 4 years at the current almost 500,000 solves.

Sorry for that. I thought I had the accurate number of seconds, but there seems to be miscalculations once in a while. The same goes for the current record of 23 seconds. I doubt that's possible, but I will figure that out eventually.

The number of solves is correct though :-)

joan454

27. Apr 2011 - 23:35 number of solves: 481947

I am never going to make one million solves if the solve/rate keeps slowing like this.

The solve rate is now down to 130 per hour.

joan454

472554 at 24. Apr 2011 - 15:43
And, Sue, the 63 years was when it was solved approximately 100,000 times!
Think how many years it is NOW! LOL

juneshone

amazing photograph. Amazing numbers. Jenna had abut 547 solvers for one of hers but I think you have just pipped her! Well done Joan.

Wow, can't believe what Magnus said. Over 63 years. So cool. Congrats.

Now I am taking bets as to when it hits one million solves.

I hope it does not crash the server.
I hope it make you some money!

I start a new job on March 28, and I hope I may find the money to become a supporter of the site.

joan454

Man, way to make me feel old, dude! ;-P

Magnus

People have spent more than 2 billion seconds solving this puzzle. That's more than 63 years!

sue1

Yippee, our own dear Roxanne is top of the list. You rock, girlfriend. GO!!

sue1

I am certainly not there. I expect that those who work it "off Jigidi" like my friend did have no chance to make the list. Remember you have to be signed in on Jigidi itself to have a chance at the list.

Way to go, Joan!:) Thanks for a great puzzle.

Gaillou

That is amazing, Joan! The picture and the numbers!

VermontMeow

I'm impressed Joan.

sue1

WOW Joan, what an honor!!! So neat to see one of our own. I wonder if Magnus knows????
