It is a good premise so we will carry on with all the same rules.
Take my age multiply by my age and divide by six, and add the
Magic number and you will be there!
Good Luck!
Thank you.

Rumours that I tell stories about my age are true.
Life is short, but these games are shorter.

(Age^2 / 6) + Magic Number = X

Uli, considering your work, you are bad a math?

LOL, yes. As I stated before, Math makes no sense to me, Taxes and Codding in Fortran, Cobol, Basic etc have never been a challenge. Go figure.

Just ask next time, via red x or PM, we are not far away. Gary's equation looks good, but I will not desemble it and just post here, when the mood strikes.

A helping hand is always good. Sometimes realizing it is there is the issue.

Let's see - From the "Post your age if you dare" thread, we determined that Ian was born in the 1946-1951 time period, so he is at least 60 years old.

Therefore, if A >= 60, (A^2/6) gives a minimum number of 600.
I like that range - not too long, not real short, and not too rough on those with dial-up or slow net access.

Onward!
