Yeah, I haven't updated those in an awful long time. I really should do that.

I do like the puzzle packs too. Very handy to be able to print out a whole bunch at once!!

I've noticed several of you mentioning printing out puzzles to bring with you on trips, and seeing as how I'm going to Scotland soon (TWO WEEKS!! YAY!!!), I was wondering how you went about printing them. Is there a quicker way than finding individual puzzles and printing them one at a time? I did find these puzzle packs under "Print Puzzles," but I've done most of these.

OK, I have updated the puzzle packs on the "Print Puzzles" pages. (Well, there are a few more to do, but they'll be up in the next few minutes.)

I've also zipped those files, which makes them about 1/4 the original size.

My original idea for this was that I'd make a page where you could specify what puzzles you want, kind of like on the "Find Puzzles" page, and then it would generate a pdf file with those puzzles in it. That was cool, except that it often took hours to generate the file, and I can't tie up the webserver with things like that. So now I generate them on my home computer and upload them all, which is kind of a pain, and doesn't get done as often as it should.

Hi Jan. I noticed that there are a LOT more puzzles up on the site. Any idea if those will become printable? I just LOVE doing these and am grateful that you created this website! Right up my alley!

Any individual puzzle is printable from its page. I don't think the puzzle packs are likely to be updated anymore.

Bummer. I liked the zipped version of the older ones. I guess I'll just have to print them one by one. Still, they're printable, and that's the point!

Hmmm...maybe I should revisit those. If I remember correctly, I had to generate them offline and upload them manually. It was a somewhat complex process, and catching up would require an awful lot of work.
