Thanks les.
About 2/3 done, including all of LHS, but again some I have no idea of the parsing, so may be incorrect.
AB as inscrutable as ever!

Have an idea now for 1d, so I'm definitely giving up! Was great fun, though (will mention my favourites later).

GK re post 14. Think it is three words but Les will confirm, no doubt.

Hiya guys,

only just logged on.

GK, You are most certainly correct, it is read as three words and I don't quite know how that's happened because the software automatically gives amount of words and letter length.

So, for everyone else, the clue for 49 Down should be (4,3,5)

The only other thing that i've stretched in that clue is a little poetic license using a capital letter for surface reading (I think you'll know what I mean)

Sorry about that folks, It must be my fault, I must have changed it by accident. I re-read all the clues when it's ready but never check that the word lengths are correct because it's automatic.

Oh well, as long as you're enjoying it, that's the good thing.

Well, every square now has a letter in it - 49d much easier as three wors!
Will have to wait a while to see if they are all correct, though.....
Favourites pastille's 26ac and lostintranslation's 23ac (next to last in, in fact).
