Now this is indeed mysterious. Unless it is the same person as...

He should really fix his internet connection then. If we assume good faith.

Fact 1:
Solver (id='x') from IP= solved test #1597 on 2011-09-25 04:22:16
Solver (id='y') from IP= solved test #1597 on 2011-09-28 07:05:04
Fact 2:
Only user ids 'x' and 'y' have been recorded to access the tests from these two locations
x and y is the same solver!
(actual ids 'x' and 'y' are not shown ... this time)

I want to remind you that this is not a commercial site and that you are all free to join even without giving your real identity. The solving tests are there just for your entertainment and perhaps training. You should also be aware that this site has no sponsors and that I pay for it from my pocket. With tricks like this you are abusing my hospitality, but also contaminating the result tables. Although this is not a competition some (probably all!) solvers like to compare their scores to results of others. Thanks to you, dear 'ichai', the real solver of the day will not have his best score recorded in the overall 'Winners' table.

I'm sorry, but I don't see any evidence that x and y would be the same solver. But if there is evidence for cheating, I would suggest hiding the result somehow or deleting it from the list.

EDIT: Milan has shown me the evidence. He forgot to add that x and y used both IPs each.

Everything is recorded in a database but I hesitate to uncover the identity of the solver after probably an inconsiderate action. Besides, I believe I have all rights to expect from you to take my word for it.

I pondered about solving from the DEM computer (which of course
has a complete different IP address) and then from home just
for the lulz...but even a troll like me has standards...
at least I would cheat after inventing a time machine :-)

"Super-Solving" - the mystery is unraveled

The recent astonishing, but almost impossible results of some solvers in the "Solving Test" coluld have a very simple reason - no IT tricks or similar cheating, at all!

It seems that after the re-launch of the "Solving Tests" in February the diagrams of the "Training" on the right and those of the "Solving Tests" are temporarily coincident!
So you don't need even a good memory, it's sufficient to do a "warm-up lap" with six "Training" problems first before starting the "Solving Test".
This way you can reach incredible results as I proved with test #2579 of Sunday, June 15th, 2014...

Solving this way, in my opinion, is not real cheating, but it is absolutely witless.

It would be much more unfair to know the trick, but delay the input on purpose for some dozens of seconds each time to seem to be a quick and faultless solver...

Some solvers can give a handicap in 500 seconds or more. Look at the test № 2983

I've received such feeling as if I've found a pot of gold. :) See tests 3122-3127.
