Unneeded clues
 
I don't get too hung up about times. Currently, I take extra time to complete puzzles because some have unneeded clues. It like to discover them. I skip the simple negative clues (e.g, Bill didn't leave at 6:00), fill in the rest and draw conclusions. I then look at the outstanding questions to see which of the remaining clues I need to use.

This is a first
 
I just completed a 4x4 in which I didn't need three of the clues. That was a first. This puzzle involved hospital bills, first names, nicknames and tourist spots.

No spoilers -- just a pick of the clues I skipped. (BTW, is there anyway to identify a puzzle by ID number?)
