in reply to Two bits for your thoughts


Question below, hidden to avoid spoiling the problem for others...

That was a fun riddle - I didn't realise that there were no e's in it, although I did get the other two.

Did you get the inspiration from "La Disparition" by George Perec? (It was a book written in French which didn't contain a single letter "e". It was translated into English by Gilbert Adair under the title of "The Void".)

    I had heard about the novel a long time ago, but no. I love brain teasers and logic puzzles and found this some time ago as well. It was when I was correcting a newbie in Freenet's #perl about when certain things were allowed to be omitted that I got the inspiration. I then constructed my version.
