Just speaking for myself, of course, but I'd like to see more Very Hards. There are four different grading levels, but it's now been six days without a VH.

Thanks.

Hey Marty

I answer this a fair bit by email, but I might not have said here. The choice of difficulty for each day is random -- I just define the relative likelihoods. Over time, I've gradually increased the proportions of very hard and hard (or at least their probabilities). But probability being what it is, there can of course be odd runs and gaps. There's one up tomorrow though!

Thanks Sam. I didn't realize that the degree of difficulty was randomly chosen. But I do realize how difficult it is to please everyone, but I thought it wouldn't cost anything to voice my opinion anyways.

Thanks for running such a high-quality site.
