Thank you iansnt for jumping in!

Wow, the results were better than I expected. It seems I've improved quite a lot. Well, at least one impact of that pandemic is positive :)

Thanks, iansnt! I ran my own script and it seems that almost all my computations agree with yours. The only difference was in the standard deviation table, and yours is correct - I was using statistics.stdev() instead of statistics.pstdev() and computing the sample standard deviation. A rookie mistake.

Congratulations to morl, a very well-deserved victory!

Interestingly, the average winning times have fallen in 5 (out of 7) categories from 2020 to 2021 (a 17% drop for Sunday puzzles). It seems that we are improving.
