THE LATEST POTM PROBLEM

****** S U I T C A S E ******
(deadline is 11:59 PM EST Sunday October 29,2000)

My summer of playing Diablo II is almost done - and aside from all the slashing and hacking, I had to learn how to efficiently stuff swords and armor into my pack. The pack is a 10 by 4 grid, and the items come in various smaller sizes. Often you must rearrange the items in order to fit a large item into the pack. So there it is. The POTM will present you with a partially filled pack (suitcase) of arbitrary size, and a new item to put into it. You will need to take things out and repack them in order to make enough room for the new item. Least number of moves wins!

There ARE other constraints and rules you'll need to know about, the long rules are HERE!

THEN - if you want to be part of the weekly status and FAQ mailings, you should send me some email ... put the word "ENTER" in the subject line of your email and send it off to:

potm@att.com

As always - if your email has changed or you wish to be removed from this list, just drop me a note at that address.
