#123190 - 02/18/04 09:29 AM Great crossword puzzle clues
Loc: lower upstate New York
Anybody seen any recently (cryptic or "normal")? Sunday's NYT puzzle had this; I love it:
Four CD's = (3 letters)

Big fat smiley face cuz I got it with just what the lovely AnnaS has presented you with.
Well, I did have the rest of the puzzle surrounding it but I only cross-checked to confirm my answer

hehehe... yep, four correct answers so far. The above two, plus the Fallible Fiend and the lovely tsuwm.
I'll post the answer in a few days in case anyone is stymied.
Edit: Make that five: Jackie got it too.

Definitely stymied ASp.
I've never been able to do a cryptic crossword. I don't get it. I know I should just keep the thing until the next week so I can see what the answers are - and understand how it works, but I haven't remembered to do so when I get the Saturday paper.

Now that I know I'm not alone in my shame, I, too shall confess my ignorance. Pity it couldn't have been 50 instead of 4, that would have been easy._________________________

Also from NYT, but not Sunday's

Loc: this too shall pass
4 CDs = ?
here's a further clue for max: as with the answer to "what's 6x9", you just have to know what base you're operating in.
