    Silicon Sea -- new archive, track plot available
    From: Renee Mattie
    Date: 2006 Aug 21, 16:29 -0500

    I want to once again thank everyone who has been helping with the
    Silicon Sea problems.  I will be asking for more help and advice as I
    continue work through them.

    I have finished an initial inventory of the problems, and I will have a
    little more time to work through things as fall approaches and the
    demands of my day job (full-time parent) ease a bit.

    * I have created a new archive of Silicon Sea problems.  The "plus"
    archive has all the available problems (legs 10-91), along with the
    answers for all the legs except 91.

    * I found out that the Silicon Sea makes 105 almanac page references (I
    have counted "sun" "stars" and "planets" as separate references), on 66
    unique dates, spread out over 5 years (96, 98, 99, 2000, and 2001).

    * I have begun plotting the track of the Silicon Sea from port to port,
    using Microsoft's live.local.com.  I have posted the first installment
    -- legs 10-16

    I am hoping the Bob Gainer and I will be able to make a lot of progress
    now that we have had a chance to get a feel for what we've got.

    Please see what I have at http://rpmhome.net/siliconsea/

    Thanks again everyone. It's a lot of material, but I will see it
