Software / Technical / Re: Crossword Compiler Instability
« Last post by stickler on January 26, 2015, 11:34:22 PM »
In my 25 years of IT experience programs don't just "become unstable". I've used CC since its inception and never had any problems. I would look at any changes that have happened around the same time (new/upgraded programs), changes to Windows settings etc - change to another program is the most likely cause.
If you want to reinstall, access the Word List manager in CC and select "Files" on the menu bar. You can open the files in Windows Explorer and save them somewhere - there's also a backup option. Take note of where these files are (the Clue DBs are accessible from the level up if you want to save them too). If you want to do this outside of CC then the files (on my XP machine) are here:
C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Crossword Compiler 9
It'll be somewhere similar on Win7.

Hope that helps.

I'm frustrated, too, but I consider this site to be a nice-to-have. No one has to make these puzzles available to us in Across Lite format, but Cruciverb does. Do you donate to the site? If not, you have no room to complain.

With that said, I'm going to donate again.

Maybe give the responsibility of posting this to someone who cares enough to do it regularly?

FWIW, the Shortyz crossword app (Android only, I think) contains the LA Times. When the regular link doesn't function, I download the puzzle to my mobile.

The LA Times is down again, what is wrong with the link that it is constantly down - it doesn't get fixed for days. Anybody know of any other sources for the LA Times. This is beyond frustrating

There are nicotine patches that can help people quit smoking. If you smoke briars, perhaps you can check with your local drugstore and see if you can get a briar patch. (If no one else thinks that is a clever pun, at least Br'er Rabbit thought it was funny!)
