Earlier this month we were running a contest for solving the crossword based on my Blogging courses - Course 1, Course 2. Here is the details of the contest. The winner of the contest was to win Melting Clock (Do not confuse this as a dummy or not working clock. This looks like melting but it always shows accurate time and it is perfectly balanced to hang off of any flat surface).
Before I continue let me just add that this is my 2600th blog post on SQLAuthority.com – it has been a long journey but extremely fun.
I have received total 142 entries and out of that there was 84 valid entries. We had to go over every single cross word manually and it took way more time than we expected. Finally we went through all the valid entries and have selected a winner. The winner is selected randomly from all the valid answer which we have received.
The winner of the contest is Martin Dauksza from Greater Los Angeles area. Congratulations Martin for winning this contest. It was indeed a difficult one as there were many valid entries to this contest. Here is the solution to the original puzzle.
Here is the link to download the original crossword: Download Crossword.
Alternatively you can download the image displayed below and print it as well.
Anyway the contest is over now but if you are interested you can still print the original crossword and try to solve it. Here are two courses Course 1, Course 2 based on which this crossword is built.
