Hello Jeff, I can understand that you did not
like what I wrote, but in a way, if one takes
a step back and take a look, one could argue
that we're all wasting our time. But it's fun.
Filling in crosswords is also a waste of time,
by the same argument.

I have no chance on Earth in trying to crack this :-)

My point is: I am not at all challenging your
method or appraoch. Instead, I think you may
be feeding it with inaccurate data.
