Thanks Mr 1282! I guess Mr 9999 took the day off.

A chance for me to stand in for the legendary Glen9999!  I hope he's enjoying himself somewhere today.

The .txt file for the LAT 29 January puzzle has a mistake: row 4 of the grid should have only two black squares after the first word (not three), and there should be a black square at the end.  I would post a correction, but when I try to make the obvious change AcrossLite no longer can read the file for some reason.

I am soooo sorry about that.  The puzzle is now fixed above.

Glenn9999 has a vastly superior process for creating the puzzle input using a script. I use a more brute force approach that is error-prone, as today's effort illustrates. Again, so sorry for not spotting those errors in my initial proofreading, and I'll be much more careful next time I try to stand in for Glen9999!
