This is a very hard puzzle. I know it is possible to solve by one-line-at-a-time reasoning alone, because my solver program, which only does that kind of logic, was able to solve it (I had to give it a bit of help, but that was simple line-at-a-time reasoning too). However, I had to resort to some edge logic to get it.

What a challenge, I had to go and find good quality smaller puzzles that were a challenge, and voila! I found lots of your puzzles Jan, so I'm happy now :)
