Well, five submissions for last week's grid, and mostly correct, too. I guess I made it too easy. We'll see how you do on this week's edition.
We got submissions from Ian "The Word Guy" Facey; Chris Guerra and David Swart; "Those of us who spend too much time on the 3rd floor outside the comfy."; Charles Ng, Melanie Barker, Robin Carswell, and Amy Morris; and James Muir. All were correct except for the 3rd floor dwellers and Charles, Melanie, Robin and Amy, who were each one square off. By random selection, the winner is James Muir. You can pick up your prize in the MathSoc office (and this time I mean it).
For those of you who successfully complete this week's grid, we'd love to hear from you. Drop your completed submissions off in the MathSoc or mathNEWS office, or send them by e-mail to email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is 6:00 pm, November 16th
Ian had a cone to pick with me regarding last issue's clue for 24 down. As he says, "the cone contains the seeds — it isn't the seed itself." I stand corrected. My cone-dolences to anyone who was cone-fused.
