No puzzle for Feb 25

Posted by on 24th February 2010

Sorry folks, but it looks like there won’t be a puzzle this week. Things were going well, and this weeks puzzle was 80% finished, when I found that there was a fundamental, unfixable flaw in the theme. We care about quality here at Beekeeper Crosswords, even more than we care about our schedule, so we’re going to drop back 10 yards and try to come up with a particularly good puzzle for next week, rather than make you suffer with a broken or rushed puzzle this week.

Puzzle #135: “Chill”

Posted by on 18th February 2010


Perhaps this week’s puzzle is inauspiciously named. After all, it has been quite chilly enough in this part of Western PA without any encouragement from your faithful puzzle provider. Nonetheless, it is what it is — and what it is is a reasonably easy, and yet charmingly annoying Wednesday-level puzzle. So put on a warm jacket, brew yourself a nice cup of tea, and prepare to “chill”.

Puzzle #133: Old Uncle Fred’s Tech Support

Posted by on 4th February 2010


When my family heard I’d been having computer trouble, they immediately sent Uncle Fred to take a look. You see, Fred’s ’bout 90 years old and they say he can fix anything. If you’ve got a shotgun with a bad barrel, he can fix ‘er up good as new. If you’ve got a ’57 Chevy with a bad carburetor, Fred’ll have it purrin’ like a kitten. If those dang kids have broken the dial on your TV set, he’ll jigger up a replacement, no problem. I’m not so sure he’ll do as well with my Windows PC, though. You see, last I heard, Fred still thinks a vacuum tube is an attachment for his Electrolux….
