Thanks, again, for posting the LA Times for us.

You're welcome.  Hopefully, everything is alright with the Admin here and the whole PUZ question can be worked out (rather be posting PUZ here than this, definitely, if there's no problems with doing it!).

This whole thing is weird and we're not getting any answers. How difficult is it for you to make the puzzles available to us? Maybe we're paying the wrong person!

Thanks again.

It is weird.  Really the only reason I've been doing this is the lapses on the site like this.    It's happened enough that I've worked on things to make it so it's not too difficult to get the PUZ files for me at the moment.  To that end, I've really only just been filling in since I was one of the frustrated users on the site that had a way to do something about it.  Trust me, I'd be even more frustrated if money got involved. 

I really don't want to get into the business of doing it regularly if I can help it.  One or two days every once in a while is one thing, but we're on Day 14 of this current run so it has started to turn into a regular thing.  And like you say, no answers.  Indeed, it's frustrating.
