I like it too.

I have really enjoyed the little write-ups from BooK, Keith and Eugene.
It's the background of what was going on in their head that makes it
so much more interesting for the reader than simply being presented
with a dry solution.

Ton, if you can find the time, I would really appreciate a little
write-up on your unorthodoxy too. How come you knew about it,
why did you choose it instead of $. in your solution, and so on.
