Grinning, thanks for the puzzles.  Should give me many months of entertainment.  I'm sure I've solved the "Enclosing land by fence pieces" one.  Took me about 10 minutes.  

I started on the electrical problem because I thought it might be easy as I'm an electronics tech.  However, after spending 10 minutes on it, I have some of it, but don't think I have it all.

Thanks for the video Tony.

For indulging mathematical/logical geekery:

Rustan Leino's puzzle page

"...some mathematical puzzles that I have enjoyed.  Most of them are of the kind that you can discuss and solve at a dinner table, usually without pen and paper."

(Your mileage may vary!!! And there are no solutions. I did surprise myself by coming up with a solution to the "alternating T-shirt colors" puzzle.)

Okay my fellow geeks, nerds, boffins, fanboys and fangirls. First full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy. Looks like fun. Enjoy.

I also thought of saying "and don't say a million seconds", but then I would probably get "A billion milliseconds.".

You're forgetting the number of geeks out there who don't follow the commonly understood rules, when they're not explicit, and who bend the hell out of the rules, when they are explicit.  ^.^

I first guessed a year.

Comment by Joseph P on January 27, 2014 at 3:52pm

... expressed in the common timekeeping unit for which the next greater unit would put your answer below 1.

My real guess was still pretty damned good.  I was thinking a little over a month.  What was your first guess?
