Are you saying I'm faster? It took me more than 9 months to catch you!

No. You took a shortcut, didn't you? Well it was worth the time!

Re: Catch Me If You Can!

Hi ZHero,

If this is a finite sequence, it's hard to imagine.
And Howardroark also solved Q1.

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  - Buddha?

"Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."

Re: Catch Me If You Can!

Edited. Thanks for spotting that out gAr. I've also verified that the links for the solution and the user who solved it are correct.

Yes this is a finite sequence and I'm sure it should not be very hard to imagine it. I'd have loved to give a hint but that would throw it all away in an instant. May be later.

Hmmm, ok. Let me see.
