```Steve,

Thank yo so much for continuing the chain of the mathematical challenge and contributing this interesting new project.

I like your comments on how you propose to use it together with Randy´s.

It has lots of interesting content I cannot absorb fast enough.

I do not want it to go to waste.

Carlos
