Oh, this kind of solution is right up my alley. At first glance, I think it approximates 10,000 solutions, which is far far far faster than trying to do everything perfectly. I can solve 10,000 things in Excel 2000 in a moment on an old Win7 laptop, so putting their minds to it for years, I can imagine how approximating 10,000 solutions wouldn’t be terribly more difficult for standard computer hardware to perform.
