Did you solve it?

Hello there! It’s time to announce the winners of the issue 17 crossnumber competition! Before we reveal the winners, here is the solution of the crossnumber.

 5 6 0 6 5 1 3 5 9 3 5 1 4 0 0 9 5 1 3 6 1 4 0 8 6 8 6 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 9 8 0 1 7 3 3 3 2 5 2 2 6 9 2 1 3 9 1 1 1 1 1 1 3 2 1 1 0 1 1 1 8 4 6 0 2 2 3 1 2 3 3 1 2 9 2 5 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 3 1 0 1 0 8 9 7 1 6 1 4 2 1 0 3 3 3 3 3 5 7 5 1 0 3 6 3 3 3 5 9 3 0 6 1 3 3 9 7 0 3 3 0 0 8

The sum of the digits in the row indicated by the arrows was 9+5+1+3+6+1+4+0=29.
