    Re: Silicon Sea No 87 problem
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2003 Sep 6, 11:15 +0100

    Peter Fogg has asked, with some justification in my view, for clarification
    about the wording of a Silicon Sea exercise, set by Dan Hogan on 9th June,
    with should perhaps have been numbered 87, though it was at the time
    numbered 78.
    
    He sent a message to the list on 22 August with the subject "SS: Leg 87
    questions", which in response to one question stated "Here I'm lost", and
    ended "Is there a problem here? Or am I not understanding something?"
    
    Rather to my surprise, there seems to have been no response to this plea
    from anyone on the Silicon Sea team.
    
    More recently, on 5 Sept, in the thread "Principles and being practical" he
    said-
    
    >Some weeks ago I posted my go at one
    >current Silicon Sea exercise and then details of a problem I was having with
    >the one before, and I have yet to hear a peep from any expert.
    
    Perhaps that valid point got lost because it was submerged in a diatribe
    about other matters.
    
    And yet up to now there's been no response to his plea, about a problem
    which puzzles me too, when I look at its wording. So I wish to add my voice
    to his, and ask for a bit of further explanation (or perhaps
    reconsideration) about that problem and the way it was posed.
    
    George.
