    Thank you all for your suggestions:

    Jack — I think you’ve given me a new favorite! I hadn’t seen griddlers before, but I really enjoy them.

    Carol — I’d used refdesk before but never got far enough down the page to see their daily diversions. I’ll have to browse through them sometime.

  6. Hello –

    Thanks for the link to cryptograms.org! If you’re looking for logic puzzles (with grids) you might be interested in our newest project at http://www.logic-puzzles.org. We’ll be launching in a few weeks with about 50,000 unique logic puzzles. Each will have its own interactive grid, and each puzzle will be scored and your solving time compared with others just as we do with http://www.cryptograms.org. I hope to launch around late August 2008. Hope to see you there!
