No doubt not because it wasn't available,  but you simply didn't try to get
a zone 5 in USA until you took an inventory of what you still needed.
Packet would help you to the tune of about 16.3 seconds sooner (your results
may vary).  Not to say that packet doesn't have its place,  but the given
example ain't one of em.

hours of the contest, but I'd have found someone sooner if I ran assisted.
