I'm afraid my generosity has its limits. If I can spot the answer in 20
seconds, I give it, otherwise I move on to the next message. In your case it
looked like an interesting problem but one which would take 20 minutes to
understand, so I just pointed out one obvious mistake in your code and then
moved on. I guess that's how consultants - and patients - in our so-called
(UK) National Health Service feel. Sorry if it didn't help you.
