puzzle about 1 minute
greetings, earthlings! the 36th installment of matt gaffney's weekly crossword contest is the first in the new format matt is instituting for february, featuring increasing difficulty throughout the month. as this is the first puzzle of the month, it's a pretty easy one. the title is "Get Back Online," and the puzzle's riddle theme reads: WHAT GOOGLE/SERVICE REVERSES/TO FORM SOMETHING/MOST GOOGLE USERS/TRY TO AVOID? the answer is google maps, which reverses to form SPAM. all in all, this was a much tamer and more straightforward metapuzzle than last week's shitstorm-inducing wikisearch.
sundries from the fill:
that's all for me this week. see you next time.
