going for the throat...
1. (8)r5c7 = (8-2)r5c3 = (2)r4c23 - (2=1)r4c8 - (1)r9c8 = (1)r9c7; r9c7 <> 8
that tears a hole in it for a while
2. ER 4... (4)r4c5 = (4)r2c5 - (4)r2c13 = (4)r13c2; r4c2 <> 4
singles.

For me, this was another nice "BBDB (Bend-But-Don't-Break) puzzle taking seven steps including a skyscraper, ER, UR, x-wing, multi-coloring, and a couple of xy-wings. Enjoyable............

Similar to Ted, a "BBDB", with a couple of Type 4 URs, a few ERs, couple of XYZ-Wings and an XY-Wing to finish up.

You need to be on the ball to finish this one. I did it using a Type 4 UR, an xy wing and 7 ER's (on 2, 3, 8 and two on 5). The last one on 4 from R5 used two pincers (B2 and B1) to knock off the 4 in R4C2.
