Here's the results of the final run:

                                 Sunday  2 00:43:13 EDT 1999
WEEK 12			      57 entered
			     305 asked for details.
			    1754 are on the mailing list!

The lead changed hands three times in the last four hours
 of the contest ... with the winning SplitMoo arriving
 90 minutes before the deadline!

The three words for the finals:  DUCK  WITHOUT  RESOURCES
 were chosen several weeks ago from the web.

In the cheaters division (using dictionaries) Susan Adams'
 bigmoo edged out Mad_Cow_Cheating from Frederic van der Plancke
 trying for a double win!

Thanks to all who participated ... I'll be sending some
 additional mail in the next week, and the website will
 be updated by next Friday.

=Fred
