Who I Am ePeterso2I’m Eric Peterson, and my email address is epeterso2@puzzlehead.org. I’m a software engineer who lives in a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I’ve enjoyed solving puzzles for years, and a few years ago I began constructing puzzles of my own. If you’re ever in Broward County and would like to get together some time, please send me a note by email and let me know. I love the opportunity to meet with other puzzleheads, especially if it involves lunch. Puzzle Testing I believe that the best way to make a puzzle even better is to ask someone else to solve it. You learn so much about how people think, how people approach your puzzle, pitfalls they may encounter, and outright errors in your construction by having someone else try it before you unleash it upon the world. If you’re a puzzle constructor, I would be honored to test your puzzle for you. Send me email with your puzzle or a link to it, and I’ll try solving it, as long as I have time available to do so. I’m a busy guy, so my time is limited … but I’m always open to a challenge. My Public Profiles * My Linked In profile * My Geocaching.com profile * My FloridaCaching.com profile Puzzles I’ve Written * Geocaching puzzles Puzzles I’ve Solved * Geocaching puzzles (solved and found) What Happened to ePeterso1? ePeterso1 was a horrible experiment gone wrong that had to be hunted down and killed before he claimed the lives of any more innocent victims. Most of the bugs that caused ePeterso1 to go haywire have been corectted in ePeterso2.

  1. Hi Eric! I finally took the time to sit down and watch your presentation. Terrific job, I enjoyed it very much! Thank you for making me laugh all over again remembering that day when Sharon and I sat in her kitchen simultaneously emailing you about the Final Exam (knowing that you were watching our ip addresses) Thank you for mentioning the Cache Across America series, here is a link to the video made after the quest was finished. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5ojTdhmO7M

  2. I am a newbie on crossword puzzle. I know I have to learn from it. As I have watched this video it really adds up to my knowledge. I learn some of the popular abbreviations on crossword puzzle. I will surely note this tip so that I may be a successful crossword solver.
