Hmm, I'm not sure what my best expert time is. I never play it much, I always play the other two levels, especially beginner, to see how fast I can go...

I've beaten beginner in 9 seconds, but I had a friend, and he used to have like some surreal ability to play minesweeper. I don't understand it, he wasn't like a scientific genius or anything, at least I don't think, but he could own minesweeper. I never saw anybody that could beat my 9 seconds in beginner until him. It's just amazing to watch, he just clicks away 1000 miles an hour without missing a beat. He can beat beginner in like 5 seconds or less. He could beat the intermediate level in less than 30 seconds, and I don't know his best expert time but I bet he could do it well, well under two minutes... I never understood just how he did it.

I never understood just how he did it.I can figure out where I need to click pretty quickly. I suck and maneuvering the mouse around the minefield, though. There have been many times where I could've beaten my personal best only to have clicked the wrong square and ending up blowing myself up.

I should meet your friend. I wonder if he has any special mouse-clicking technique.

My mom did that for awhile. Not sure which game she got to. There is supposedly one unsolvable freecell game. Game 11982.

Definitely Free Cell, although it's probably been two years since I played it.

I like minesweeper.

My only beef is that on expert, there comes a point where you are forced to guess. If I'm sweeping mines, and my only choice for finding one is to guess, I think I'd just turn back.

Actually I'm a FreeBSD/Linux guy, but up until about 2 years ago I was solid Windows. MCSE, MCSD in VB6, MCSD in C#.NET, I was on the beta team for .NET for over a year. I was deep into MS. .NET was the final straw that drove me away screaming.
