Board Dots

There goes the afternoon... Board Dots is an annoyingly simple flash game. Just cover each space on the board with your dot. It's not as easy as it looks.

Curiouis. My work filters this as "Adult Content". Exactly what kinds of Dots are these?

gave up on braining it out after 10 mins at level three, just brute-forced it. There are few enough decision paths that you can take each possible starting point and follow each path from it, abandoning a path if you've divided empty squares from one another (or can see that you're about to). Decided this method was too cheap; tried using brain again on level four; went back to work.

More dots, more dots, more dots... come on, more dots. Ok, stop dots.

Any solutions for level four yet? I'd be happy just to know where to start.

As a hint, the starting position for level 4 is (2,3) from the bottom left.

Ok, is level 9 some Internet joke I'm not in on? I could swear I've exhausted the brute-force search on it. It does say it'll leave you pulling your hair out in the end.

Well, that's one way to solve it - make a post on Metafilter stating that you've proven it's impossible, then try it one last time...

Only 9 levels?!? What kind of cruel joke is this? It was just getting good.
