Yes, I may have mentioned that. One must be like Edison if you are to truly make progress.

Re: Small letters after tags

There are some who believe I am that old or that young. They are mistaken. I recently had a photo sent to me by a poster here with the comment,"I have found you! Now you will pay dearly. I will drain the mathematics from your melon like head."

Now do you see why I do not give out any info?

Re: Small letters after tags

Re: Small letters after tags

For one thing you are not the only person reading these posts. People I know are in here under false names and as guests, watching. It is surprising to me that you claim to read those Japanese short novels. You have spoken to the person who introduced you to them. Have you learned nothing from that?

Re: Small letters after tags

Not really, but I do not see how you can tell anyone anything about yourself, which you have done.

Re: Small letters after tags

Hi Agnishom;

We are talking about someone that anonimnystefy knows.

In post #56 I was definitely not talking about you.

Re: Small letters after tags

Hi Agnishom

So I was right! By the way, you have an interesting last name.

Hi bobbym

You both know her/him. Didn't you say we can drop it?

Re: Small letters after tags

Yes, but that was between you and I. Agnishom was asking for some clarification. I gave him some without going any deeper than the posts did.

"Three foot tall".

That would have to be one of the little people, then (which certainly narrows the field...or enlarges it).

Where have you been? Haven't seen you in a while.

I've popped in from time to time but mainly just to catch up on the latest posts. Bob recently solved one of my puzzles (the "More or Less" cross-number) and I posted then...but that was the last time, I think.

I'm about to post a challenging cross-number puzzle that I've nearly finished setting up in Word.

Re: Small letters after tags

Hi Bobby,

Yes, I'm happy and everything's fine, thanks. I've been having some verrrrrry late nights lately watching Wimbledon (some terrific matches there!), and now LeTour.

But while these have been on (during the ads and boring bits...and rain delays) I've sat by the fire in my lounge-room chair, armed with pen, paper and calculator and solved the cross-number puzzle I mentioned above. It took forever, but it's a goodie and so I'll post it as it's a nice challenge for anyone who enjoys these.
