Next step: solve in three dimensions

Calculusfilter. A man is led to the center of a valuable field which he does not own. He coats his feet in blue paint so that his path can be traced. At dawn he begins walking. At a randomly selected time he will be told to stop walking, whereupon he will walk in a perfectly straight line back to the starting point. Then he will be given all the land that has been circumscribed by his blue path. [more inside]

hexagon strategy game on 360?

There's some game on the 360 that exists or was in development at some point in the past year that is a strategy game using hexagon shaped "towers" of land as a board. I think it was turnbased and used words (but not sure about the words part - but I think it involved a scrabble like setup) Somehow you would "stomp" the hexagon shaped towers and they would slowly lower until a certain point then they would fall making the play area smaller. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Parallel Turn Strategy???

Does anybody know of a computer game that is what I would call "Parallel Strategy"? That is, it's not realtime in the sense that there are discrete turns, but it's not turn based, because plays are not sequential, but played in parallel (that is, all players make their moves in the alloted time for the turn/round). When the time is over for that round, conflict resolution rules happen...

Author Interview

What is the best way to approach an author for an interview? I'm assuming I go through the publisher, although this author has published just one book. Since I'm a student/independent journalist, I'm wondering whether my email is likely to be forwarded along to the author. My feeling is the author may be interested, but since it's a student piece it's unlikely to sell more books. Should I worry about catering to the publisher in any way in my correspondence -- and if so, how? T

Resources for playing in my first Hold'em tourney?

I'm playing in my first Texas Hold'em tournament next week. It's pretty low-key (charity fundraiser, $100 buy-in, $1,000 first prize, ~40 players). I've played in a monthly limit game for a few years, doing reasonably well. Any advice/websites/books that could help me with basic strategies for this type of tournament play?

Real Estate Pricing Strategy Question

Real Estate Pricing Strategy Question. So we're looking to sell our condo in San Francisco. After meeting with a broker, he said that we should ask $575k - $625k. He showed us numerous "comps" that seem to support his suggested price. But ours does have some unique features that make me think that it could go for as much as $650k. But I'm not a real estate professional. Considering that a broker, even one we trust (he came highly recommended) is motivated to make the sale quicker, does it stand to reason that based on his range, a higher price is reasonable, even if it means that it takes longer to sell (and the broker has to work harder)?
