    IMO you should leave the text where it is Brian. To change it's location now would totally invalidate the data you have collected.

    Though if you were to run it again I might suggest have something like 4 or 5 running, each with a different but fixed text location, and basically giving a random one. Then you would be able to draw a better conclusion about why they might have clicked at a certain location.

    Of course thats if you care enough to do it :P

    My guess is that if the text was off center, you'd find the same pattern (or warped but still very similar) with the intersection of the lines of concentration at the new text location.

    Wow, that is cool Brian, nice. That could easily be made into a C++ Win32 app, I say Win32 cuz that's what I'm into , so maybe I'll just do that. Of course, give Brian credit for the idea. Where/how did you come up with such a clever idea? That's some thinking outside the box if I have ever seen it.

    Very nice, I'd be interesting in seeing the relation between page location of the links users clicked on to get to that page related to where they clicked on the page. I personally clicked on the word, but it wouldn't surprise me if people clicked on your link and then just clicked exactly where their mouse was when they saw the "click anywhere".

    Why not implement a dynamic follow-the-cursor text thingie saying "click anywhere on this page" or something? Best way to get your point across.

    And if you're really into it, don't let people see the result until they've clicked, and give them a "second chance" -- a new click on a second page. Compare the two, and see what you get!

    Suggestion: render entire image in PHP, then pipe to browser, instead of real-time rendering. Running a 10k sized array blew Firefox to bits
    #include <stdio.h>
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.
