black ink cheating
That is, if you consider looking up crossword puzzle clues on oneacross.com to be cheating. Or even if you think that looking up stuff in imdb and wikipedia is cheating. I haven’t spend a whole lot of time on crossword puzzles before, mostly because I sort of suck at them. But a few days ago, I discovered Black Ink. I never tried the previous (java-based) version, but this version is pretty good. But it makes looking up stuff in oneacross (which I didn’t even know about before) ridiculously easy. And you are one command-tab stroke away from your browser and the crosswordy goodness of wikipedia, google, and imdb. I haven’t laid down the cash-money for this application yet, but if I keep going I’m going to have to.
