Re: Not too long to go!


 

Delos, et al:
I thought you'd bite on that one!
After it's announced, and you've read the Rules and FAQ's, reviewed the 'big picture', so to speak, pls give me your feedback?
I'd like that from everyone. There was a lot of work by the 070 Staff and others on this one for sure.

Yes indeed, Milt...just as soon as I get the TS2000 back from Clif it's "Tally Ho", and no cats will be safe! ( I believe that would be a Clowder of cats)! :-)

Now given that the grid squares are of regular geometric shape and the coastlines are essentially fractals, I would add 10% to this number to account for those sub-squares where a bit of land might be included in an otherwise empty sub-square.
