Regular RF Cafe visitors know I have a penchant for creating and solving crossword puzzles. Since around 2001, I have personally generated a new crossword almost every week - hundreds in total. Some studies have suggested lower rates of dementia in people who regularly exercise their brains, but that is not the primary reason I work crossword, word scramble, and Sudoku puzzles - I enjoy the challenge. A couple times each year, Popular Electronics magazine published an electronics-themed crossword puzzle; however, unlike the crosswords I make, not all of the words and clues have to do with technology and science. Still, they're a good pastime activity.
