 And 'pretty in pink' they are, too! 05/Jul/13 12:08 AM SE 8.4SSTS to UP28.1) kraken cell (156)b2 => a1<>1,gi1<>4; UP31.(1)b2-g2=g1||(5)b2-(5=4)h2-e2=(4-7)e1=a1||(6)b2-(6=9)b7-b3=(9-3)c3=(3-7)a2=a1-(7=4)e1 2) (7)i9=(7-5)i5=i4-d4=d3-(5=8)h3-(8=HP(26))i13 => i9<>27;UP81. 05/Jul/13 1:00 AM Sorry, I dropped a portion of the first leg of the kraken in copying from my notepad. The correct kraken is1) kraken cell (156)b2 => a1<>1,gi1<>4; UP31.(1)b2-g2=(1-2)g1=i1||(5)b2-(5=4)h2-e2=(4-7)e1=a1||(6)b2-(6=9)b7-b3=(9-3)c3=(3-7)a2=a1 -(7=4)e1 05/Jul/13 1:04 AM Love that pink! Have a great day, everyone. 05/Jul/13 1:06 AM Another typo! Apologies. Not enough caffeine and too much work. The last step's conclusion is i9<>26, not i9<>27. Here is the correct step:2) (7)i9=(7-5)i5=i4-d4=d3-(5=8)h3-(8=HP(26))i13 => i9<>26;UP81. 05/Jul/13 1:28 AM #1.
