Happy Tuesday! Over the last week, I built myself a new computer. While I knew I was making a jump in capabilities, I didn't fathom just how much more powerful the new computer would be compared to my old one. For example? With my old computer, triple stacks in a crossword took hours to find let alone finding good ones. You'll notice that today's grid has not one but two triple stacks. Upgrading from a 2015 4-core CPU to a late-2020 16-core CPU sure makes the world of a difference. Going forward, expect to see more unique layouts in my crosswords.
