After the long weekend here in the USA, it seems I didn’t do much puzzling (or any to be fair), but I did start sketching out some designs for a new puzzle box that I’d like to make. Don’t get too excited, it’s unlikely to see the light of day any time soon as it’s a big project, and will take me a long time to realise. If it does happen though, I hope it will be something rather special.
I put in a shapeways order over the weekend, for the first prototype of a 3D printed version of my Cube puzzle. This version is a little expensive still as I have kept the internal pieces with a solid wall, so it looks as close to the Lego version as possible. If it works out then I’ll consider making one with mesh internal pieces to reduce the cost significantly so it could be purchased if you wanted one. At some point when I finish the Matrioshka that I’m trying to build, I’ll make the cube in wood, but looks like that will have to wait till the end of the summer before I can even start on that project. Too many things to do, and not enough free time!
As far as the blog goes, thanks for all the feedback you’ve given me. It’s appreciated, and it is good to hear from everyone. Today I upgraded to the newest version of WordPress, and I hope that will clear up some of the Errors that I know one or two people have reported seeing. I’ve never reproduced them myself and can’t narrow it down to a problem at the server side, but I know it’s an issue. If you’ve been affected then I’m sorry, and all I can suggest is to try another browser (Firefox seems to be the one with the issue).
I’ve added a new feature to allow you to rate the reviews, and would love to know what you think of that. Also if there’s anything else you’d like to see added to the site, or even if you have puzzles you’d like me to review, then let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
