Cruciverbalists rejoice! Here is another crossword puzzle to try your technical prowess. Unlike the weekly RF Cafe crossword puzzle that contains only engineering, science, mathematics and other tech words, this one from Electronics World does have a few unrelated words. The big difference between making crosswords then and now is Mrs. Le Fevre had to construct the grid of words manually, whereas I just create a huge file of words and definitions, draw the grid outline, and then click a button to have software put it all together. I'm guessing it took a couple hours to make this puzzle; mine take about 15 minutes.
