I need to write more code. I also need to write more blog posts. As a result, I’m combining my efforts for my latest mini-project.
The idea: a small website with a few standard puzzle “templates”. People who tackle daily newspaper puzzles (codewords, sudoku, crosswords) can fire it up, quickly enter that days puzzle for their own personal use, then solve it more easily than with a pencil and paper using auto-complete, easy undo, and possibly some kind of hint system. I admit the idea is perhaps slightly flawed due to lack of overlap between daily newspaper puzzle tacklers and the kind of people who’d use a website to make daily puzzle solving more efficient. It should be fun to make anyway.
