                              pretty cool yeah but 17D
                              17D SOLIMusical directive preceding an unaccompanied section
                              was questionable...

                                Can't argue with that :( I tried to capitalize on the fact that the plural of series is series but it still feels pretty clunky
                                • MMG 11:31 · 6 months ago
                                  It works in Italian, where it comes from, if that's any consolation :)

                                We’ll done! Clever construction! (I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t do the work to find the binary number, I just punched in all the variations including ‘101’ and ending in ‘1’ until I got the completion)
                                • ryoustra 🤓10:03 · 6 months ago
                                  Brilliant! A very fun solve. Clever construction!

                                    Very cool! I think I found an alternate answer that wasn't accepted ;) (001101 = 13 = XIII).

                                      I don't think that satisfies ODD
                                      51A ODDProperty of the sum of the digits in the decimal form of 28A
                                      , right?
                                      • hbxwords 4:37 · 6 months ago
                                        I misunderstood ODD
                                        51A ODDProperty of the sum of the digits in the decimal form of 28A
                                        , thanks!

                                      Fantastic puzzle -- unique and challenging -- thank you.

                                        Awesome puzzle! I also found multiple solutions 🤓 (13 / 001101 / XIII, 29 / 011101 / XXIX, 53 / 110101 / LIII)
                                        • Mike D 🤓5:33 · 6 months ago
                                          I think 011101 is the only one that satisfies ODD
                                          51A ODDProperty of the sum of the digits in the decimal form of 28A
                                          ? 1 + 3 = 4 and 5 + 3 = 8, neither of which work for that
                                          • Max 🤓6:29 · 6 months ago
                                            Oh, that makes sense! For some reason I totally ignored the clue for ODD
                                            51A ODDProperty of the sum of the digits in the decimal form of 28A
                                            and thought it just meant the number has to be odd
                                        • bergie 🤓6:42 · 6 months ago
                                          Awesome. I've done probably thousands of crosswords and that's the best aha moment I've ever experienced.
