Ah.  I see the problem.

I operated in the San Seriff Poisson d'Avril contest.  And have already been
declared the winner by my friend Siddhartha.

You may have heard of him.  He was very famous for a short time as a
pitching prospect for the Mets, even warranted a write-up in Sports
Illustrated.  Just do a search on Sidd Finch, and all will be revealed.

I'm afraid that Sidd is a little tough to reach these days.  He's usually
maritime mobile in and around French Polynesia, which is where he retired to
(he spent quite some time meditating in Tibet, and then in Pakistan for a
time as well).  But I do believe there were a few spots for him yesterday on
the DX cluster.  Just listen for AP1RIL/mm or FO0L/mm, and he'll explain

You missed it. I won it. But I refuse to send the log in protest to whole
contest community letting few renegades getting away with classifying and
treating piece of software "Skimmer" as a assistant, human, somebody else.
What's next??? Computers, keyers, pencils????
I bought me a plaque, went to Mc Donalds for the Awards banquet and got
bummed on decaf.
See ya'll next year from the Spice Shuttle!
