This Friday will be September 19th.  As many of you know, this makes it International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  Since we plan to commemorate the day with a special pirate-themed puzzle (as we did last year), we’re going to wait to post the puzzle until Friday morning.  Hopefully, you’ll find it worth the wait.  Yarrr!

BTW, here’s a bit of info for anyone who might have wondered how these puzzles are produced.  The answer is that we’ve written our own crossword-maker software, and have been using it in-house while polishing it up enough to be useful for all audiences.  Having finally reached that point, we are now selling this program — CrossFire — to the general public.  It runs on all major platforms, so if you’ve been saying “I can write better crosswords than that guy”, this will give you a great opportunity to do just that.  Feel free to stop by our main site and try a free trial download.
