    Hey,
    I'm new here so sorry if I posted this in the wrong place. I'm got a 650 and I am using the stand alone crossword product. I wnat to download the ny times puzzles. Any help with the one stop option stand alone offers? Currently I have to launch my browser and download the puzzle then play it. When I copy the url and plaste it to the app. it says it is not a valid url. My guess is that the url only goes to the page where the puzzle is and not to the actual download address. (I'm guessing this because I still have to select the puzzle when I download it manually and that is the url I use. I don't know how to get the url I need for the actual download.)
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    What url are you trying to use?

    Ah, that looks like it ends up at a web page. The download link that crossword would understand is a file that ends in ".puz" (across lite crossword format). If you search around on that page can you find a link to a .puz file? If so, use that link in crossword. You may have lick looking at the page source (view menu -> source in IE), and searching for ".puz"

    Thanks for the quick reply. The bummer is that URL is about the only thing I understand... The rest of your reply was pretty much Greek to me.
    I'll try to hunt and peck my way around or just skip it.

    Thanks again,
    Brian

    I use Crossword 365 from Handmark. It's the best.
