Three people that I know of solved the puzzle.
The solution was "Mike is in Panama."
* Mike Lewis solved it first late Wednesday evening.
As he pointed out to me,
he did have an advantage.
* Paul Gerken also sent me the solution
even later Wednesday evening.
He included a simple program
for doing the transformation.
* On Thursday (today),
Mark Bole posted to this list
a program for doing the transformation.
His program is less simple than Paul's
but it is IMO more general and encourages testing.
Congratulations and thanks to Mike, Paul and Mark.
