For the real Sudoku lovers and smarties (as the creator’s of Kokonotsu call them) there is a website at kokonotsu with every day a new online Super Sudoku Puzzle.

For people working on visualizing puzzles and creating user interfaces for puzzles I found a very well explained document (pdf version) written by Kozo Sugiyama, Seok-Hee Hong and Atsuhiko Maeda and published on their website of the School of Information Technologies, University of Sydney in Australia.
