Puzzle Time

We have been accused of being non-cerebral, base and even dull, so I plan to add a little intellectual culture with a fun puzzle. Don't expect New York Times crossword or anything impossible like that. We don't have aspirations that high. (Or puzzle writers that smart)
What we do have is a variation of the ancient Japanese number puzzle that we call Pseudo-ku.
Solve it! If you dare....

The idea behind the puzzle is simple. Just look at the square grid and insert the numbers from 1 to 9. But wait, each large square can only contain each number from 1 to 9 only once. We have inserted a few numbers to get you started.
  • 1-10 minutes - Genius
  • 11-20 minutes - Numbersmith
  • 21-30 minutes - H&R Block employee
  • 31+ minutes - Merely average
  • More than an hour - STP writer
  • Days and still counting - Jersey Shore cast member
The solution can be found below, for those of you who wussed out. No cheating please.
