Once more into oblivion, my friends - someone has forgotten to perform the LATimes .PUZ conversion and post it on this site.

Once more, I call for either automation of the process, or handing it off to another individual who has the time to perform it.

Why choose Spanish for ANO when you can clue it "Sajak request"?

I've seen SIDEB and BSIDE in quite a few puzzles recently. A few artists still release albums on vinyl, but 45-rpm singles haven't been produced in the US since the early 2000s. (45s are still produced in Australia and Great Britain---don't ask me why.) I've said that AFRO should no longer be used in puzzles. Now I maintain that SIDEB and BSIDE should also be retired from puzzledom. While we're at it, let's retire AVA too. Who remembers Ava Gardner anymore?

I didn't notice that at first. From now on, I will try to be less woebegone and world-weary and more watchful when I wildly wend my way to www.cruciverb.com. Will that serve you well?

That was the third comment.  The second comment begins with Wow!  ---  guess I should've underlined the W's.

I don't get any results when I try to download Friday's Wall Street Journal for AcrossLite (using Browse the Web, Stand Alone, Inc., Crosswords app).  The puzzle doesn't download, but also there's no error message.  Everything else appears to be fine.

I had no problem accessing today's Wall Street Journal acrostic puzzle. Of course today is August 23 and you were having problems on August 22. Oh well. Try http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/puzzle20140823.pdf and you can also replace the "0823" with "0822" or whatever date you want.
