Default Scores

Hi all,

Based on that equation that appears to accurately chart scores for finished puzzles, the best strategy is to get really good at solving puzzles in the 600-700 second range. These puzzles are short enough to get really good times and scores. When trying to solve short 4X4 puzzles, I only get around 330 points even if I set a new record for it.

As for getting faster, it still comes down to practice. I've improved markedly even after I thought I was really good. There are plateaus that can persist for a while before progress is seen.
