It's over 2 years since Redneck girl 01 put up a crossword in the Hobbies section, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've tried not to duplicate too many answers with the previous crossword - obviously there will be some easy answers, but hopefully there are at least 1 or 2 to get you thinking.

If I've goofed up any clues or numbers please let me know - it's my first crossword, and it's now after midnight here so I'm not as wide awake as I should be when checking it.

Grid is below the clues as an attachment. I will post solution in a week or so, or when concensus demands.

It looks like it took a lot of work to make.

The tricky bit comes near the end when you've got loads of Dukes words in, and you need to fill the gaps. In usual crosswords the compilers can choose any words - I was trying to keep to the theme which means there are a couple of clues with slightly tenuous links, and a couple of easy ones too.

I have a little problem though. When I click on "attatched thumbnails" nothing happens. I'm not real good with computers. Am I doing something wrong?

It pops up ok on my computer when I click the thumbnail - have you tried right-clicking the thumbnail and choosing "Open Link in New Window/Tab"? - I've tried this successfully in Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox (3.6.7) - maybe other people could let me know if they are having problems, I will have to find another way to post it.

Anyway, glad you liked it and thanks for the feedback - I have another ready to go if this one proves popular.

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on the HazzardNet.

I'm embarressed to ask though but I have no computer skills except e-mail and the HazzardNet so I'm not sure what to do. I really didn't understand all that stuff about links and Firefox.

Am I supposed to print it out to play? If so, that'll be a problem because my printer hasn't worked for a couple years. Then again I've never had a need for it.

Sorry for being so computer illiterate.

Am I supposed to print it out to play?

That's probably the easiest way - you could just scroll up and down while filling out the grid in your trusty (paper) notebook - the grid you need is 25 squares wide x 19 squares high. It would be great to make it interactive, but I don't think likely/possible in a forum (unless the moderators know differently).

Should I publish the answers in this thread, or a separate thread so you don't see them accidentally? How soon do you want answers?

Well I'll probably spend a little more time with it tomorrow but I'm not staying on any longer tonight.

I see the crosswords have over 70 views so folks are checking it out. I'm surprised nobody besides me has responded. You deserve a lot of credit for this great project. Thanks again for doing it.

Thanks for your continued support Roger. I have contacted MaryAnne about posting the crosswords in an easy-to-print format (not that that's going to help you:(), and plans are under way - watch this space.

What do you think I should do about solutions?. Should I post a solution grid here or in it's own thread, or should people post their solutions within this thread?.

I don't want to spoil your week, but there's another crossword ready to post, and a 4th that's about 98% done. I'll probably leave posting until at least the weekend to give people a chance to do the first 2. They have been very enjoyable to put together scouring HazzardNet, Wikipedia, IMDB etc. to find possible words to include, then watching though episodes to double check them.

I said it once and I'll say it again.

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on the HazzardNet.

Since I can't print them out, I just answered them in my head without using the crossword chart. I didn't do so good with the non-Dukes stuff but only missed two of the Dukes questions.

I don't have any advice for posting answers. If it were me, I would NOT put them on a different thread but I don't think it really matters.

They're all supposed to be Dukes questions, but I know what you mean;). Did you do both or just the first?. #4 is now done, but I'm stuggling a bit with #5 - I usually find if I sleep on it, it gets easier in the morning.

To Roger and anyone else playing - if you're stuck, let me know - I'm not putting the solutions up yet, but I'm quite happy giving extra clues to help you finish.

I finally got it printed out!

Well, I didn't but my wife did. Our printer takes forever. I think it was made before WWII.

I was able to do the other ones just by scrolling up and down and remembering things but this one is a little tougher so I had to get it printed out. I have a lot to do this weekend so I won't be able to get to it until Sunday evening. I'm so busy this time of the year and there's only so much time in the day. Thanks again for doing it. In the meantime, I'm going to post a trivia question.

What a blast!!

I still don't have two.....

29 across and 27 down. (Update, I got 29 across right after I posted this....thank goodness for the edit button...I was missing the obvious....Boss sure is)

The only reason I remembered 4 across because he was in a movie I really liked. Other than that I never would have gotten it.

Thanks Hoss. You're awesome!

Well done Roger, I have to admit that 29 across was a bit tenuous. I originally had another word there, but discounted it for a reason I forget. 27 down would have caused me to head for Google - I've learned a lot a trivia trying to find those final few words to complete these crosswords.

Big thanks to MaryAnne for posting the PDF versions. They're set to US Letter sized paper, but print fine if you're on European A4.
