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.

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.
