    I respect Dan's decision, though regretting it. In my opinion Silicon Sea
    has provided a useful challenge, particularly to those "newbie" navigators
    who we need to attract if our list is to flourish. We can only guess at the
    amount of desk-work that's involved in the setting of those problems.
    We owe a debt of gratitute to Dan, who provides us with a playpen in which
    we can discuss and squabble and put the world to rights. Anything that
    causes him to be disenchanted is a serious matter.
    And here, I should admit to perhaps having added to that disenchantment. I
    have recently been pestering him, off-list, to revisit Silicon Sea 87. If
    that has played a part in his decision, then I'm sorry.
    As for SS87, I will discuss that in another posting.
