Blimey I'm old - the last thematic item didn't exist when I taught the general subject! Really enjoyed this as I do all Ifor's puzzles - it was hard but yielded to perseverance at just the right pace....

I thought this was terrific, with thematic material that just kept on giving. My drawing abilities are even worse than that of a certain artist who exhibits unmade beds, but even so my final result is...

Rather surprised to find an Oxymoron puzzle in the Listener. Wasn't that the pseudonym the late, great John Harrington used for Enigmatic Variations, while his Listener and Inquisitor puzzles were set...

The perimeter entries were a great help once the link between them became clear. The ungenerous checking is a serious obstacle when you've got letters latent, uncertain entry points and some very...

I have a Zyxel VMG1312 series combined modem/router. Recently I've noticed that the Internet connection slows down from the expected 20 Mb/s download speed to about 13 Mb/s over the course of about...

I can't find a thread but no doubt AB search will embarrass me again... This was FUN! I loved the riddles and the way their answers led through the rooms and ultimately to freedom. Excellent clues...

I enjoyed this puzzle despite my dislike of some of the subject matter! Not too difficult, though the clashes ensured that some of the clues took a long time to crack. Thanks, Merlin.

Harribobs can always be relied on to produce a spectacular grid construction - and so he has here. Still, I found the refilling of the grid to be an unrewarding slog, not because the final grid...

When I saw then title I had a horrible feeling this was going to be a topical puzzle about the C-word but no, the theme turned out to be one of my favourite stories. Beautiful implementation, and if...

An absolute delight. I thought this was going to be impossible at first, but some lucky guesses at the words in Ring 5 proved invaluable. Tough but scrupulously fair clues, and refreshing to have a...

Can’t find a thread so here goes. I thought this was going to be another gentle one until I ground to a halt with the last few substitutions. The clues for these were little help and I had to resort...

That was HARD! Satisfying though, with just enough grid feedback not to make this a serious case of stubborn sticky label peeling syndrome. A worthy challenge, indeed. Thank you Brock.

This had a very satisfying PDM which facilitated solving considerably after a slow start. Certainly no pushover but not too hard either, for which I was grateful after an exhausting Christmas. Thanks...

Gosh, that was a workout and a half! I'm not certain I've got the final transcription right, but I'm not too bothered as I don't send in. It's clear what's required, though there's plenty of room for...

I know this is trivial, but can something be done about the automatic "corrections" to question titles which force everything but initial letters to lower case? For example a thread containing "PART...

I was surprised how quickly (by my standards anyway) I completed the grid, but of course that was the easy part. When I looked the theme up I had to check several times that I had the English page for...

I found this extremely difficult. The clues were tougher (in my view) than we've had for a long time, not helped by the obstacles of clashes and well-disguised extra letters. Despite getting the theme...

No doubt there's a thread lurking, not yet appearing in AB search, though I've looked hard enough... I failed at the first hurdle - I couldn't find the puzzle! It's usually at the bottom of the home...

Can anything be done about this? This morning I searched thoroughly for a post on this weekend's Listener puzzle, and when nothing came up I started a thread myself. It turned out that there was an...

This should satisfy those who found last week's clues too easy (I wasn't one of them). A clever construction and satisfying endgame with no ambiguity, though those who submit may find it difficult to...
