Re: How would you go about solving this ????

I believe this is relevant:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integer_programming

I suspect the easiest way to do this is with excel.

EDIT: Excel came up with nothing, see attached image.

EDIT 2:I can't read. Fixing.

Re: Another economics puzzler

This problem becomes simple when you look for the equilibrium price, that is: .9N = S .9S = N The solution, of course, is that N=S=0. This makes sense; someone could feasibly do continuous trading, and as a result, the north and south get cheated and have virtually worthless currency. Based on that ...

Re: Starcraft 2 : The Dune II Clone

Battlenet league placement is so arbitrary. I finally did my 2v2 random placement (I 2v2d with a friend before), went WWWWL and got diamond.


I lost all my season 2 placement matches, got 1v1P 2v2P 3v3D 4v4D. Very arbitrary.

Due to my screen size, the comic ended right on the white space between the first three frames and the diagram.

So the solution is for her to only appear in cameo roles. Which is hardly enough. =( Also I can't bring mys...
