    Loved this one! Not a word ladder constructor myself but I think that changing the same letter twice in a row (like rungs 18 and 19) is generally taboo. Not sure if that's a solid rule or anything and I enjoyed the ladder regardless :)

      Thank you! And great point. I should have left 18A18AFunction that is a building block for a Fourier series expansion[----] on the cutting room floor… I'll see if I can do that now!

      Tricky! (In a good way!) I enjoyed 8A8AStale Italian bread (plural)[----] quite a bit. The circles where letters changed was very helpful when I occasionally needed to go out of order.

        Thank you! The clue for 8A8AStale Italian bread (plural)[----] was totally stolen from someone who recently used a similar clue for the franc. Apologies for not crediting appropriately… and now I can't find it. So if you know who I took this from, please let me know!

        Another fun ladder! One thing I noted is on 17 it should be Crosshare.ORG not .COM 😀
