That is just beautiful. Be sure to click the link "'magic' 45-omino" to see more properties of this puzzle. Incredible how he got it all to fall into place.

If you like Sudoku, be sure to check out the ones Times put out at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,18209,00.html

Their Fiendish ones are sometimes among the best I've seen and the puzzle creator tends to make nice looking symmetrical puzzles. There is a new version there called Killer which gives you no numbers prewritten, but the sums of groups of numbers.
