    I haven’t visit this blog for a while because I thought there’s no more update. Now I’m excited to see new cool posts. Keep it up.

      Thanks for your interest and nice comment. Adding new puzzles take time. I must enter to my workshop for making new puzzles or prepare documents for old ones for publishing. I am planing to add more puzzles but this will take time.:)
