LA Times?

Is there any news about why the LA Times puzzles are no longer available?

Periodically the LA Times puzzles are not available for a a few days, but I think this may be one of the longest stretches without a puzzle (so far 11 days).  I hope it comes back soon!

I agree! Really missing it in across-lite format.

Outages happen frequently enough that we've taken to posting text that's consumable by Across Lite.  Check this thread.

I’ve been taking screenshots from the Washington Post and printing them up to solve, but hope the Across Lite version comes back soon!

There's a version the Washington Post puts up online, which has a print function.  Otherwise, feel free to check the thread posted up above for Across Lite versions.

Also got your text file to work in Across Lite - you are a magician!  Thanks again for the helpful options.

What a pleasure to have the across lite downloads working again! And thanks again to all who helped fill in the gaps.
