Usually when I visit the forum and click "unread topics" I will see the new posts since my last visit, and after I close my browser these new topics will clear themselves. Since yesterday though the topics have not cleared themselves. Is this happening to anyone else?

I have supposedly had a lot of "unread" posts for so long, that I've just been ignoring it. I go by the date of recent posts, and who wrote them, to know if I missed something or not.

Has anyone ever watched a show called "King of the Nerds" on TBS? I had never seen the show before, but was flicking through the channels the other night and happened to catch the last 1/2 hour of the series finale. I guess it's a reality show/competition to find the smartest person and a winner is "crowned" at the end of the season. I watched most of the final showdown between the last two competitors and it was pretty neat. They had to battle wits at chess, video gaming, connect four, and a crossword puzzle to name a few. The two challenges I thought were really neat though, were the logic puzzle and griddler (same thing as Logic Art) challenges. It was neat seeing 2 puzzles I love get a little spotlight in prime time! smile

Hello- I am back. I hope everyone is well and solving. We had a tough winter here as I lost my job last fall but was able to get a new one within the same company Feb 1. So, needless to say, my family and I were rather stressed for a few months but now we are back on track. I recently assessed my puzzle book collection and at 100+ books/mags, I have decided not to purchase anything for a while. I am through withdrawls and just solving now. I am solving Fill-INS for the most part right now and watching all the episodes of CSI from the beginning. I have also been solving Ken-Kens via the iPhone app. My final purchase was the first 2 volumes of jigsaw sudoku and the big Sudoku bonanza book off the web site in Jan. Again, I hope everyone is doing well.

Hi, Chris. Glad things are working out now. Great picture you have right now with the masked puzzle solver or whatever it's supposed to be. Welcome back to the forum.

Who is that man? The Shadow knows . . . . .

I've heard the Shadow on old-time radio shows, but never saw him. OK, so maybe that's who it is, Frances.

Oh, yeah, The Shadow had the ability to "cloud men's minds so that they could not see him." But I never saw a TV show or movie about him. Wonder how they'd make the special effects if they had such a show.

Correct, that is "The Shadow." I believe the drawing is from the old pulp novels cover art. There was film made in the '90s with Alec Baldwin. It was decent but I don't think it did blockbuster level business. Orson Wells narrated the old radio program. You can find them to listen to on-line via fan sites.
