JoeySalads99: I came. (1 day, 20 hours ago)

Tom: Interesting (4 days, 23 hours ago)

0:01: 10/10 with 1 second left! (2 weeks ago)

David: Very clever to have people's own brains working against them by having the associate the "Alt" with that pronunciation.

I enjoyed it even if I failed to guess most of the rows correctly. (2 weeks, 2 days ago)

Dane Scott from Britain: Very LATeral.

Couldn't get the keyboard question. Felt like I INSERTed every ALTernative, couldn't find out which one to ENTER, it took a LONG time, felt like a FORTnight.

However I SHIFTed my thinking and gave myself some breathing SPACE so I didn't get too CROSS.

I will ESCAPE now to go and enjoy a COCKTAIL, you can DELETE this comment.

m: loved this one (8 months, 3 weeks ago)

LIN: NICE ONE! (8 months, 3 weeks ago)

Paul Atreides: Absolutely destroying the top ten right now. They should have me and my boys on Only Connect. We'd show them a thing or two. Only took me 18 seconds. (9 months, 1 week ago)

RF: Hard, got stuck on ‘bow’ which wasn’t even an answer! (9 months, 3 weeks ago)

gappy: Nice for the most part. I agree that the solutions were of a similar nature in 3 of the 4 groups, though they were all subtly different in construction.

I didn't quite get -itude, and put "abbreviations on a map", which seems stupid in retrospect. (9 months, 4 weeks ago)

mal: nice, but easy (10 months ago)

Bobby: Well done (10 months ago)

Szymon: fantastic. Superb. Well done. (10 months, 1 week ago)

Craig: smashing, went through all combos of keyboard keys before I started trying to work out other clues, but was fairly easy after that (10 months, 1 week ago)

Daniel: Posting this one on my office's weekly puzzle whiteboard. The "___itude" group was lovely. (10 months, 1 week ago)

Lola: Line 4 was inspired imho! (10 months, 1 week ago)

John: Too many categories that involve adding words/letters. Should be no more than one of those per wall, I think. (10 months, 2 weeks ago)

mcfc: enjoyed that too barry (10 months, 3 weeks ago)

lorna: I really liked this because it demonstrated the principle of not going for the obvious link- with a lot of red herrings- first. Like finding the edges of a jigsaw. Seems to be a lot of unwarranted criticism here (Osprey ,Mapper, Susie, Avery) , but each to their own opinion. (11 months ago)

peddars: Wooohooo .... My first 10/10 on a hard grid, and with 2 seconds to spare ... The tide has turned ... I am mentally flossing as I type ... LOL. (11 months ago)

barry: enjoyed that (1 year, 2 months ago)

Bloomy: Clever! (1 year, 2 months ago)

Pipbit: I thought it was very good. The multiple options for the keyboard made it that much more interesting. (1 year, 3 months ago)

Susie: One word type clue is enough (1 year, 3 months ago)

D: Escape, Space and Alt as red herrings for the keyboard, not great (1 year, 4 months ago)

C: Enjoyed it,... maybe a bit too easy though. (1 year, 4 months ago)

Neil: (1 year, 4 months ago)

Mapper: Too many word type clues (1 year, 5 months ago)

DSU1985: Enjoyed it. (1 year, 5 months ago)

VJ: Cool groups, hard to guess (1 year, 6 months ago)

R.M.Healey: Yes, I just nailed it very quickly. I don't quite know why, but the accompanying words seemed obvious to me. Very pleased at my maximum score (1 year, 6 months ago)

mr cam: thought this was quite hard to solve the grid but got the connections easily. the keyboard row has a lot of red herrings! alt and space. (1 year, 7 months ago)

Elastaplast: Easy but good (1 year, 8 months ago)

Mister Tom: So good I reused the space group several years later (1 year, 10 months ago)

Me: (2 years, 2 months ago)

MARS: Really good liked tha itude (2 years, 2 months ago)

Lu: Challenging, but completed in 1:36. All pretty similar solutions. (2 years, 2 months ago)

AlanP: Easy but a good grid. (3 years, 3 months ago)

Al: Very satisfying grid. Didn't get the itude set. Should have!! (3 years, 5 months ago)
