rec.puzzles archive, and who will find your answer there if it exists, or
maybe compose an original answer if they are interested enough! At any
rate, they promise to respond to your question within two days, and
perhaps save you the embarrassment of posting a well-worn puzzle. They
will respond even if they do not know the answer to your question.
