Elliptical Reasoning

7:10 am - I still haven't really solved circular reasoning. When I went out to claim it a year ago, I found that my calculations were off and ended up wandering around the park until I found it.

I happenned to be in the same park a while ago and conveniently took the coordinates for use in this cache.

I was finally able to finish the calculations last night. I used GeoCalc to verify my calculations, but having the GeoCalc source code was even more helpful in automating the work.

My coordinates were a bit off somehow (maybe my circular reasoning coords were off), but it was still in the third place I looked. Nice puzzle. Here's to hoping that some of my work can be reused for hyperbolic reasoning! Thanks. Posted by jeff at May 2, 2004 07:10 AM
