Thanks to all who have answered so far.
So far, my JAD ANSWERS file includes definite answers to:
3. I have a complete set of the books.
4. Sitting at a pair of high-powered personal computers, I'd
have never worked out this one.
7a. Most people have got this, but what about (b) and (c)?
14. As in previous years, the question gives a hint to the coding method
16. Everyone's got this one right so far!
17. Easy for physists/chemists, impossible for anyone else.
parts of 18. Since there are only 7 items in the list, out of twelve,
some of the abbreviations must be doing double duty!
I believe there are 9 different languages involved.
Anyone studying romance languages, please let me know.
parts of 20. Clovis point has been explained, but the others remain
(I'm trying not to give away the answers on the list, as there may
be others reading who want to enjoy the personal challenge.)
As of 20 minutes from now, I'll be on vacation until start of Jan,
so don't expect any instant replies, nor further contributions to
the list. I hope you all have a good holiday season.
(My plans include helping with a Scout run Christmas Card delivery service
taking some of the load off the Royal Mail during their busiest time,
raising a large quantity of money, and doing a lot of good public relations
into the bargain. We expect nearly every house in the town (pop. 15000)
to get at least a couple of cards with the ScoutPost '91 stamp on them.
That's in the run up to Christmas. Sometime my former Venture Scout Unit
will be holding its annual Christmas Dinner, to which all former member
invited---With everything prepared by the Ventures, it should be
an interesting experience. How many will ask me who I am? (Only the founder of
the Unit!) Between Christmas and New Year, I'll be hiking somewhere fairly
remote, cold, in west UK, with some Venture Scouts from Wiltshire - yes, I
know they're English, but I can probably ignore the fact long enough to enjoy
the walking/climbing. Did I say cold? Today's high in sunny southern
Germany was in the lower 20s Fahrenheit. Brrr....)
