Patrick explains that he opted for palindromes "...not because of my length (181 cm), my average weight (77 kg) or my house number (141) but because I was attracted by their overall symmetry and the fact that it was a novel and thus insufficiently studied subject."

Some of the problems in the archives are marked as not yet solved. \|/ TWO PROGRAMMING CONTESTS: ATTACKING QUEENS http://members.aol.com/DrMWEcker/Contest.html These contests were inspired by the Problem Corner's "Attacking Hyperqueens" problem. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
