    Hello Tim and Claire. The magazine downloaded perfectly. I took you up on your offer of an open weekend and registered for that and wanted to thank you for the free book of puzzles.

      It’s a pleasure, Michael! We’ve got a talk from Gareth Russell going live on Friday 7th, as well as our usual Friday video, and then a live chat on the Saturday evening with Gareth too, plus you’ll be able to have a good browse of the site archives.
