For Christmas I received a sudoku page-a-day calendar from my wife--and this after having sworn off the addiction. I decided to finish the damned thing as quickly as possible.
Some frightening statistics:
91.25 hours spent filling in numbers (3 days, 19 hours, 15 minutes)
6 pens lost, broken, or spent
16,425 squares filled in (assuming an average of 45 empty squares)
4.93 puzzles per day
I've had enough. Forever.
