Listen With Others

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin

Volunteers Please

Posted by Listen With Others on 20 Jul 2009

It is about four months since I took over the running of Listen With Others, and, going by the visitor count, it seems that many of you enjoy dropping by fairly regularly, if not every week. I hope that you have also found the site a useful addition to the Crossword Centre message board and to fifteensquared which covers, among other puzzles, the Inquisitor and Enigmatic Variations.

While the site has pretty much run itself, I cannot but thank the efforts of Shirley Curran and the other half of her team for their regular weekly posts which have enabled me to concentrate on my other crosswording activities. I must also thank the contributions of Erwin Hatch for his numerical analyses and those others who have provided the occasional and very welcome contribution. I must especially thank setters Charybdis, Homer, Phi, Samuel and Shackleton for their Setter (and solver) Blogs, as these always assure high visitor traffic.

Having said all that, I am very keen to encourage other solvers to record their experiences with this great series. Whilst I am probably fairly high up the Listener statistics (this year at least), I am not the fastest of solvers and would love to see blogs from those of you (and you know who you are) who breeze through every week like a stroll in the park. I appreciate that other commitments, including other blogs, setting puzzles and the W word (work) get in the way, but please, even if you can only provide one contribution over the next couple of months, it would be read with interest and enthusiasm. And if you’re just a novice, don’t let that hold you back.

If you are interested, please email me at lwo at@ laserbase dot. plus dot. com (I don’t know why I bother trying to camouflage that, I suspect spam software can interpret such feeble attempts, so that’s!!). Alternatively, if you are already signed up as an LWO author, just post your blog.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
