 X Marks the Spot (Posted on 2007-05-02)
With the exception of the letter L, each letter of the alphabet is to be placed once in the grid at the lower left. Consecutive letters of the alphabet cannot be adjacent in any direction, not even diagonally. The X has been added to get you started.

Every blue/yellow cell in the upper left grid shows the sum of the numerical values of the letters which appear in the adjoining yellow/blue cells of the lower left grid. So, for example, the 40 in cell 5E, might mean that Z and N (or Y and O) are to be placed in cells 5D and 4E.

The letters and numbers written outside the 5x5 grids serve no purpose, except to identify cells.

 A B C D E 1 A 14 N 1 22 16 47 18 31 2 B 15 O 2 18 67 22 72 25 3 C 16 P 3 66 25 87 30 50 4 D 17 Q 4 31 95 29 82 31 5 E 18 R 5 49 34 66 29 40 6 F 19 S 7 G 20 T A B C D E 8 H 21 U 1 9 I 22 V 2 X 10 J 23 W 3 11 K 24 Y 4 12 25 X 5 13 M 26 Z

Let's just white-out the letters on the screen and overprint them

and then maybe, to preserve the integrity of the problem,

Federico  might be able to send corrected code to levik which he can then substitute (levik performed something of this nature for a puzzle of mine when in the public arena).
