I can't see the latest genius crossword this morning. If I sign in at the main Grauniad screen then search on 'crossword' then click on 'genius', I get last month's #113 - but no grid.

If I search the archives on the righthand side, using 'genius' and 'December' and '2012', I get the intro page to the genius and it invites me to sign in. If I try to sign in it says I'm already signed in and it throws me back to the Grauniad's main page.

If I crawl back to the genius intro page and click to see the crossword I get the heading for #114 by Paul, including special instructions - but again, no grid or clues.

What the heck is going on?

OK, if I cut and paste I get the grid and clues (thanks) - but now there are no special instructions with them! Is this the printable version?

Scarlett, how did you get to it? If just tried going: main grauniad page -> crosswords -> '
Latest Genius crossword
This month's Genius crossword'
and that gives me last month's!

If I do the archive search i get a blank where the grid/clues should be. If I click for the print version I get the page you linked to (I can see the specials now - missed them before).

Thanks for your help, Scarlett. I'll print it out and tackle it.

My only problem now is that I can't fill it in online and submit it - but then I don't, usually.
