Wow. Couldn't manage to win anything in the bash this year, even when I had a fifty percent chance. That phone call I got while working on it really hurt my chances... Congratulations to the winners.

And you were super close. I believe there was only 6 minutes between you and The Penguin!

Thank you Curtis for running this event. Although cross-word puzzles aren't my thing, I still gave it a try. Appreciate all you do.

I NEED to know the microsoft answer, and one other, but I left my paper copy at home. After starting three times and not getting to finish the puzzle, I gave up.

Aero was the name MS gave to the user "experience" on that wonderful operating system called ... Vista.

Great puzzle there Curtis. It was very Will Shortz worthy.

Congrats to all the winners.
