ah, I didn't try to troll, I put so many ;) in.

well, ok, but it was:

that's  >12s... unless he did start over again and again, but I assumed 
that is not the case because of:

*JRuby executions:* Elapsed Time: 0.888 [...]

*JRuby:
jruby sudoku01final.rb
Elapsed Time: 1.058 Secs*

but maybe I was wrong.
