Here’s the link to the original, complete blog from 2009:

Whilst I can’t agree with the original bloggers about everything, I can agree that this was masterful Dac at his Mr Smooth best.  My points of difference were that I thought this was harder than average, not easier and that whereas there was criticism for the way Roman numerals were used in 6 down, I loved the clue and it gets my COD nomination:

Ice-cream? Initially this in Rome (6-4)

    I didn’t look at the old blog, surprised by the criticism. That was my COD too.
