Beekeeper Crosswords

Themed Puzzles from Beekeeper Labs

Announcement: Suspending weekly updates

Posted by on March 30th, 2010

I’m sorry to have to announce it, but after the next puzzle (#140), Beekeeper Crosswords will be going on hiatus.  We’ve had a marvelous time, but after more than 2 1/2 years, we’re finding that other endeavors have to take priority.  (When we started, Beekeeper Labs was a start-up in search of a product.  Now we’re supporting 5 apps and working on new ones, and the support time is starting to cut into our crossword time.  Since we aren’t willing to give up supporting our software, something else has to slip.)

We aren’t going away entirely.  You’ll still have a stock of 140 old puzzles to revisit, and we hope to post new ones on occasion.  We just won’t stick to a fixed schedule any longer.  If you want to be automatically notified of new postings, we recommend that you look at our RSS feed.  It’ll keep you up to date without you having to do any extra work.

You’ve been a great audience.  Good night; thanks for coming; and don’t forget to tip your waitress.

    Well, it’s good to be so busy that some things have to give way. “Idle hands” and all that.

    You been a great inspiration to me, Beekeeper, and the independent weekly crossword puzzle blogging will continue at Blather Review. Well, at aleast as long as my blog host can post my puzzles when I publish them, which hasn’t been too consistent, lately. (Four days since my last post and still waiting for it to show up on my homepage, grrr.)

    I guess I’ll check in every couple of weeks, much as with Trip Payne’s site. It’s all good.
