    Route it out

    Jezza Bear and Al Bear were have a late night chat by the log fire and had just started their second cup over hot chocolate when the fax machine started whirring and out popped the following diagram Jezaa Bear sprang to the machine, ripped off the sheet and exclaimed " My God Al Bear it's from the Ministry of Secrets, they need help"

    <IMG SRC=http://magicforest.co.uk/fun/routejezza.jpg>

    Underneath the image was some text which read:

    "Al Bear and Jezza Bear

    Agent MF1 is in deep trouble; it appears foriegn agents are following him to the secret headquarters of my division. On the map above you will note that MF1 lives at location A and our HQ is at B interconnected by a series of one way streets depicted by the arrows. MF1 must take a different route by car each day and go by a different route each day along those streets. I have limited resources to protect him and need to know how long will it take him to try all the possible routes?

    Love M for Mole"

    "Wow, Jezza Bear, we better change the hot chocolate to strong coffee. this is serious, I know let's ask our friends at Woody's"

    Re: Route it out

    I can see StuartR tip tapping away at this moment, you are correct to assume Leonardo of Pisa and because of that you can join Al Bear and Jezza Bear for a mug of hot chocolate with an extra helping of marsh mallows <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    Let's see what Stuart comes up with and see if he deserves one too <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Not fair, I got this one but couldn't enter the reply because the lounge wouldn't talk to me.

    It wouldn't talk to me either, but it stopped sulking after half an hour...

    Maybe it did, but I was sulking by then, or possibly sleeping!

    I saw you working hard in WOL and then seeing you drop off the list. I think it only fair that you get a mug of hot chocolate with an extra helping of marsh mallows too....enjoy <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
