    Sorry, my dear friend, the correct answer is 324...

    (Ms. Chicken was asking for the total number planted, not how much each of us got. - True, this is a detail, but at least it saves me from coming in second again, like last week... )

    must go and get some coffee - alas without glamorous italians or friendly chicks, but clearly I'm in need of caffiene
    Good luck with the coffee... You know, I also wonder where ACD is. Do you think he is really flying around and spreading his seeds, as Chick-Dance suggested?

    That's a LOT of work for a very, very small price....

    Ok, my wording is a bit different, but is comes down to the same thing:
    You have seeds in different numbers of Rows (R) and Columns (C).
    You have the different people c, t, and p, which have the row numbers Rc, Rt and Rp, and Column numbers Cc, Ct and Cp. Number of rows times number of columns = number of seeds.

    From your description we know

    (A) c's seeds are distributed Rc * Cc
    (B) t has Rt=Rc+1 and Ct=Cc-9
    (C) p has Rp=Rt+5=Rc+6 and Cp=Ct-15=Cc-24

    Since A=B=C (all have the same number of seeds), we know that

    Rc * Cc = Rc+1 * Cc-9 and
    Rc * Cc = Rc+6 * Cc-24,

    meaning two equations with two unknowns, which is good, since then you can find out both unknowns (Rc and Cc) by solving the equations, and you get

    Rc=3 and Cc=36, and 3 * 36 = 108, meaning 324 in total (3 * 108)...

    Nespresso is from Nestlé, the same company that also produces Nescafe - but not the same as Nescafe, which is soluble coffee, totally different in quality and taste from the coffee used for Nespresso (on the other hand more practical in certain situations of course).

    Nespresso is a more a "coffee system" consisting of top quality ground coffee (beans) in sealed capsules, ready to use in the the corresponding coffee machines. The coffee is absolutely great, hard to beat even with a fine-tuned professional machine and excellent coffee. It's not cheap (about 40 cents per coffee at least in Switzerland), but life is about quality, not quantity, right?

    Hi PB! Still on your quest to reach 20'000 MTDN members in time?

    Did anybody already get the new Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (DNB)? It is only Ł7500 or $13,000, a bargain for the 60 volumes, 1000 pages each, with 55'000 biographies of PB's and jpahl's compatriots. Interesting also to note that it was printed on paper made by a small paper factory in a small Swiss town I have never heard of before.

    Anyway, there are really interesting biographies, e.g. that of Farrokh Bulsara, born in 1946 on the small spice island of Zanzibar, Tansania. His parents, Bomi and Jer Bulsara, were both Persian. Bulsara later went to school in Bombay, and then started studying at the Isleworth Polytechnic, Great Britain, before becoming famous as Freddie Mercury, front-man of the pop band "Queen".

    Or Mary Toft, who was famous for a while in 18th century England for giving birth to rabbits... I can't link to the Oxford DNB, but here is more about Mary.

    Do they have the philips senseo/cafe crema machines over there too?
    My sister gave me one and I love it!, nice coffee AND ease of use. And what is best I can make 1 or 2 cups of coffee and dont have to make a whole pot (or mess about with espresso machines)
    The quality of the coffee is good, even my wife who doesnt like coffee likes it. Nowhere near a proper coffee machine, but the ease of use makes up for that..

    I haven't seen this Senseo machine, but it seems to be a similar system. However, the coffee you get from a Nespresso machine/Nespresso coffee is better than that from a "proper" coffee machine (also a bit more expensive though).

    IS there? You mean a pretty girl with long blonde hair in a bikini wearing a sexy tight tee-shirt? No, I haven't noticed anything of that sort.

    JP -- Miami!

    Lots to do and see ... especially people on South Beach. Chick would be right at home on South Beach, I think.

    Besides, the weather is great most of the time ... except for those nasty hurricanes!

    And yes, Chick, I like the avatar.

    Come to SF, weather is crappy this time of year just like London

    Wow, "Let's meet in my limo at 4PM darlin'" falling behind by six with "You? You low-class farmer chick... Scram!" on the lead. Never thought that would happen, I guess I lost my bets. "Ha?.. " and "Let me sleep on it first, Chicky " still far behind.
