I can solve it by guessing a square and then proceeding until either it breaks or solves, but I figure there must be a method to move on from this point, but I've tried all of the ones that I can think of and can't move past this point.



Code:
+-----------+-------+----------+
|1  8   23  | 7 5 6 | 9  23  4 |
|5  4   37  | 1 2 9 | 8  37  6 |
|79 279 6   | 4 3 8 | 17 127 5 |
+-----------+-------+----------+
|6  129 129 | 5 7 3 | 4  8   29|
|3  27  4   | 8 9 1 | 5  6   27|
|79 5   8   | 6 4 2 | 3  79  1 |
+-----------+-------+----------+
|8  6   79  | 3 1 5 | 2  4   79|
|2  3   17  | 9 6 4 | 17 5   8 |
|4  19  5   | 2 8 7 | 6  19  3 |
+-----------+-------+----------+

+------+-------+-------+
|1 8 - | 7 5 6 | 9 - 4 |
|5 4 - | 1 2 9 | 8 - 6 |
|- - 6 | 4 3 8 | - - 5 |
+------+-------+-------+
|6 - - | 5 7 3 | 4 8 - |
|3 - 4 | 8 9 1 | 5 6 - |
|- 5 8 | 6 4 2 | 3 - 1 |
+------+-------+-------+
|8 6 - | 3 1 5 | 2 4 - |
|2 3 - | 9 6 4 | - 5 8 |
|4 - 5 | 2 8 7 | 6 - 3 |
+------+-------+-------+

Look at the 7's in block 7 (lower left corner) they are both in column 3. This locks a 7 in column 3 and you can remove the 7 in r2c3. Rest is singles.
