Why are you reporting this puzzle?

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.

W O W !!! If we keep going at today's pace we'll be at 2,000,000 in:

LESS THAN THREE YEARS ! ! !

Irene hit 1766400 seven hours ago. Since then we've added 62 solves. I just redid the math and it comes out to about 2 years and 11 months. (Of course, that's daytime hours and overnight is probably slower, but it's still very encouraging. KEEP IT UP, MY FRIENDS!)

Thanks Pat, yes - 2,000,000 !! LOL (excuse my old-timers)
Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise (or the hurricanes don't arrive, as we say around here) I will live to see that 2,000000 in person. ☺♥☺

Jumble

If we all solved it 10 times each a day, it would certainly help in getting to the 2,000,000.

20,000 puzzles solved since January 10, 2020
Today is October 20, 2020.
I see now where PatSquire has figured out we are about 9 (nine) years from 1,000,000!

patsquire

Good for you Irene! I was wondering who would get that big round number. ☺

1766000

A very eerie similarity just occurred to me. May the number of Covid deaths worldwide never get close to the number of solves we do here.

patsquire

Let's see how we're doing these days. It's the afternoon of October 15, 2020 in the U.S. Eastern Time Zone.

We stand at 1,765,960.

We can check back after a couple of months have gone by (or whenever you want) and figure out our solves-per-day pace. Using the Jan. 19, 2020 number above we're still about 9 years away from 2,000,000 but maybe the pace has speeded up lately. We'll see.

jasonchung2

It can happen, Niccolino :-)

niccolino59

Just missed the board with 1:47. It would be great to get to 2000000 solves!

jasonchung2

It is good to hear that you are well and safe, Joan :-))

So far, I am doing fine.

Congratulations on the number of solves on your puzzle :-)

Best regards,
Jason.

@jasonchung2
I am well
I am safe
I am fairly secure in my own little world.
I hope you and yours are also doing well

Hello, Joan.

Hope that you are safe and well.

1765074 Figured I'd give it another shot. My times have never been all that great. I sure wish that some of the solvers' times had not been eliminated. I know Roxanne was number 1 for a long time, lower 20s, but then her name disappeared. I see Barbara is still there.

1764561 - Saw the post on Facebook and wanted to add to the count. What an impressive solve count.

Wonderful to see that this puzzle is still going on strong in numbers of solves :-)

Een heel mooie puzzel .

robf

(( Cough, cough )) LOL!!

patsquire

I'm sorry, the "it" referred to the word "esoteric" I used two comments ago. I believe it was an ancient Roman peeping Tom who said, "Veni, vidi, veni!"

robf

I was middle-aged before learning that it (we shall leave the unlatinized such as myself to puzzle out what "it" is) is pronounced Wenny Weedy Weeky! Pat, that is an example of esoteric knowledge.
Had a long belly laugh at Julius Caesar's expense that day. Sorry Jules, old boy!

Jumble

patsquire

It just means mysterious. My school district in Pennsylvania was very big on grammar and vocabulary. We even had to take Latin in high school. What little Latin I learned was with a Pennsylvania Dutch accent!

"In Latin there are no wubbias. Only wees, and the wees are pronounced like wubbias.'

Fowly

I would need a dictionary to find out the meaning of ESOTERIC. THEY are even changing the use of words now. Gifted instead of given, even the modern use of FUN gives me that `fingernail down the blackboard’ shudder. But I am 11 yrs older than you Pat, and just beginning to feel my age. Life is good....even with it’s the COVID restrictions. Stay well my friend, Fay
I saw the horrific fires in California on the news....... having been through a similar situation at Christmas time i can fully understand what a frightening experience the people went/ are going through.

Tell me about it! At 72 I bought a lovely German Audi Q7 family car. It was so complicated that at 73 I traded it in on a nice American Ford Explorer. And heaved a great sigh of relief. (I just turned 74.)

One example: think of the immediate area around your car's radio. Dials and buttons and switches, maybe a dozen or so. On the Audi there were 29 buttons in that same area! And of course, they were so small they couldn't have WORDS on them, oh no. They had esoteric symbols and squiggles, and I needed the guide to them in the owner's manual!

Fowly

Why oh why are `THEY’ always changing things????? Us older people aren’t all up to having to constantly changing what we know.
I bought a new air fryer, it’s SO more complicated than my old (broken) one, if I had read the instructions before I purchased it, I WOULDNT have purchased it. I shall preserve!!!!

patsquire

+7.

On my Samsung Galaxy S-6 tablet I have to:
1. Click on green "Solve Puzzle" button, (lower Right of picture.)
2. Click on "•••" Button, (upper Right of window.)
3. Above picture, click on "?" button. (3rd from RIGHT)
4. Click on boxed "Restart" button, (Right side, below picture.)

I hope this helps.

Thanks Ardy.

OK, thanks.

@Syke are you related to marcelteun?

I still doesn't work for me. All I get is the completed puzzle. :-(((

Flash is being phased out at the end of 2020.
We don't know if it turns into a pumpkin then, or illuminates the second wave... but it won't be helping us do puzzles any more.

myself1935

oh- if l try that l will never be able to get back to this.
My ineptitude with the computer is legendary. but thanks anyway-

Could it be a windows problem?
l just assumed it was Jigidi.

Bekkabee

In the past, I've had the same problem. Sometime it lets me solve it, but other times I can't. If it happens again, I'll report it. (Good idea, Rob.)

patsquire

I've never heard of such a problem. I just tried it and solved it again, which I'm sure is somewhere in the hundreds of times for me. I use a Mac desktop computer.

robf

I've never had an issue solving this puzzle again and again; but then I do so only on my laptop with Flash, never on the cell.
Because this is a "tourist attraction" high point for Jigidi, PWH, they would probably appreciate hearing about any impediment to more solves being racked up. Along with any supporting info you can provide that could help them pinpoint the issue.

myself1935

l find they don't allow more than once- that has happened to me lots of times.

I wonder why it won't let me put the puzzle together again.

Wow :-)

Still can't make the board at 1:51! But still enjoy solving this one.

patsquire

At the present rate of solves that's about 6½ years from now.

PWH

Only 241,216 to bring it to 2,000,000.

@PzzlGrl
Scroll all the way down and click on Support. Give them your problem ….they should be able to help you.

patsquire

Sorry Pzz, I just saw your comment. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix that problem. I hope it's started working again by now.

My best time, which I got long ago, is 1:04. I just had a solve where everything was kind of lined up and, without realizing that and without hurrying I got a time of 1:09. Wish I'd have been racing! Might have improved my all time best!

patsquire: I, too, like to rework some favorite puzzles. But for the last week or two I can't seem to re-open the puzzles. Please tell me how to do it so I can get back to work! ;)))

patsquire

I'm glad you found it after all these years. Welcome. Many of us return and do it over and over. We're trying to get all the way to 2,000,000 solves!

Such a stunning ice sculpture!

There were some comments that included the count at the time, but they may all have been deleted by now.

patsquire

I wonder if anybody knows how high the comment count got at its peak before we started deleting old comments.

Marymargr8

Not the fast time, but the 1000th comment!

Fabulous! (1:51).

♥♥♥ Thanks Ardy ♥♥♥

ringleader

That's a fine number, Ank. I am not aware that Joan chose any particular time of day to choose a number. I made note of one I knew was still on the 19th. (One year her count was on the 9th rather than the 19th). She says she can't edit the description any more since the puzzle was down and put back. I was thinking if she wrote to Magnus and gave him the numbers that he might be able to add to the list for her.

@joan454
@ringleader
I just read your comments.
I was the first on January 19th, the number was 1,746,728
♥♥♥

ringleader

Check with TPTB, Joan. It would be neat to keep the chart updated. Maybe they could add the 2019 stats as well as the ones from yesterday on the list and change the 8 years to 9.

joan454

I can't seem to edit the text.
Thanks @ringleader for capturing the numbers

ringleader

Joan454 and Joan_2 are the same person. She uses Joan_2 most of the time. @Joan_2

Joan, going by the comments on January 19,2020 this was at 1,746,808 solves.

RandomWorship

Regarding the comments, folks - it looks like Jigidi have come up with a solution. Which is to not display them all. At the bottom of the page is a "load more comments" button. With the oldest one visible without pressing that button dated March 2019. I like that solution. Thanks @Jigidi !! (❛ᴗ❛)

jyl

@robf I sincerely hope there is nothing to worry about with joan454. I've been "working" on this puzzle for quite a while and may have something of value to those of us who are concerned about her. Quite a while ago, there was concern written about in the comments section of this puzzle. It was suggested to those of us who write in the comments remove some of our comments. The volume of comments was, evidently, slowing down the speed of the whole puzzle. I know I went back and removed quite a few comments, as did several other solvers. It seemed, at least for a while, that the speed quickened considerably.
It may be time to go back again and remove unnecessary comments once again. Just a suggestion, but it may make things more pleasant for all of us.
