wow that was really nice. Easy flow. But i guess i was taking my time , so that i wont leave any cell blank and cost me penalty. It paid off. Finally did well in at least this biggest size puzzle so far. But have to wait to see other's timings to see how well i have done. Nice puzzle with connectivity and use of 1's.

Sorry guys for delay, this is on me. I had to get unplanned trip to Berlin, this is a kind of vacation for me. Anyway, I did the puzzle with Toketa vol 4 theme, because I thought it would match the Toketa competition -I checked the forum Toketa posts, as I saw there are huge positive responses in there- While I was constructing the puzzle in hostel lobby :) at the early morning, I thought is that I's done, but entering the puzzle into the LMI system we saw there wasn't unique the top left..+

corner. Then I've made several changes, but I couldn't fix the puzzle. So I had to get out the hostel and visit some places, I asked Deb, how much times do I have for fixing the puzzle, he said nearly 6 hours. But even if I had 6 hours I couldn't catch the right moment, then we had to postpone. Anyway, why I'm giving these details, because I respect solvers, and LMI. I'm so sorry all of you guys, for today's puzzle and TVC XIX date changes. Best, serkan

Whilst I have no problem whatsoeverwaiting for a delayed puzzle, I do think the decision to apply the 1.15 penalty less than 24 hours after the puzzle was actually published needs to be looked at!

Yes, hopefully every puzzle will be available for 24 hours before penalties are applied.
And this was a very nice puzzle, thank you Serkan!

We had announced in forum that late penalties before the puzzle was available for 24 hours will be removed. It had to be done manually.
