Maybe Danny or someone else can figure out a way to make a backup archive? Just in case?Keith

But I still don't see it in the way it was originally described, as an XYZ transport.
re'born already answered it.

All pincers transport to r8c5.
r5c3=8 => r5c5<>8 => r8c5=8

Its a nice way to find it, but after all only a part of the path (without the UR) is needed:

(4=5)r4c8-(5)r1c8=(5-8)r1c1=(8)r3c2-(8=4)r4c2;
r4c369<>4, then r4c3=9, r4c6=6

I suppose, that the easy it was to spot it, the hard it is to formulate my elimination as an AIC.
In my sloppy notation i would say
r1c6<>79 [i.e. none of them] => r89c6=79 [i.e. a pair] = ...

Rather, they help to describe how you found the chain.Thats why like a name for them. I find them looking at the 2 bivalue cells with a common number. But i fiind xy-chains, when looking for pincers ...

Nice [url=http://nataraj.eluhost.de/fmtsudoku.htm]tool, nataraj.

Effective is a rather strong term! The SdC only performs more initial eliminations than Norm's continuous loop. In this puzzle, both the SdC and the continuous loop reduce the puzzle to the same grid ...

How do these eliminations compare to the Sue de Coq you were trying to avoid?
Very interesting loop near the Sue de Coq cells, where 2 cells are revisited.

However the Sue de Coq eliminations are ...

In the second finned xy-wing, isn't r9c6 the second pincer (making it an "almost triple") and the fin giving a third one in r2c5 ?
Nice solution anyway.

Nice solutions.

In mine no chains/transports are needed, but a type 6 (?) UR, leading to a type 4 UR, strong links in the 6-cell DP above, and a 2-cell BUG to finish it off.
