The current edition of Chambers is the 12th. The Works have the 11th ed. for £9.99.

Thanks Rambler. Will get one if our local Works has one. Just thought that the clues were specifically found in 10th edition but on reflection a more up to date one should have even more info!

It would appear that this Rainbow quiz is going the same way as previous ones.
I can't remember how many pages it ran to last time but I felt most answers were given in one form or another - and well before the closing date.

When are all you saddos going to stop bitching about each other and occasional site users - get a life! There is a huge amount of intellectual arrogance from some people (I have the answer and am very clever, why should you cheat off me - bog off), followed by extreme petulance (all right then, let's spoil everyone's fun by publishing all the answers). I have used the site - and the other one - for indication of direction on the ones I have run out of inspiration on, about 10 this time. I do the quiz with a couple of others, and we get much more satisfaction from sending in a completed version than one with 98%. I will always send in my cheque regardless, so source of research seems somewhat irrelevant - you'll be trying to ban one-look next.

And in terms of timing, there aren't any prizes for being first (not that that would make a shoestring of difference), so why the sadistic insistence of maddening yourself for ten weeks instead of two?

I would have preferred it if hints on this site (and the other) were all clever and subtle, as a lot of them have been, but that becomes a very subjective judgment.

Oh dear, beginning to sound like the ranters that I despise!
