Michael Blake's Rows Garden Kickstarter Campaign

Michael Blake's Rows Garden Kickstarter Campaign


Michael Blake's Kickstarter project, offering 10 Rows Gardens for $5, ends on May 2. The clock is ticking.  SIGN UP NOW!!!


Rows Garden puzzles were invented in 1995 by Patrick Berry, who still publishes his creations in the Wall St. Journal and at They are incredibly fun to solve, and are approachable by anyone who can solve at about a Thursday level in the New York Times.  I'm betting that, after solving this packet of 10 Rows Gardens, you will want more, and that will be the birth of Garden Party Crosswords: an email service that sends you an original puzzle every week.

Problems with CRUCIVERB-L

This message concerns the delivery of the CRUCIVERB-L mailing list messages.

New email-related rules are now being enforced by some of the major ISPs, including Microsoft. This has had a major impact on the operation of mailing lists such as CRUCIVERB-L. I have done everything I can to adhere to the rules, and I was finally able to get Verizon to start accepting mail again. But some ISPs are not lifting their bans, even when a list operator has made all of the necessary configuration changes. Email domains affected include,, There are many more. I believe this affects non-digest (regular) subscribers only.




An excellent resource for
constructors and solvers.
