I don't have it in fully written out detail currently. Most of my notes are in shorthand notes to me alone. I am currently working on it. You will have it by Monday at the latest.

Hopefully it is fewer than 98 steps.

I can't open the proprietary attachment you sent. Can't you simply paste the text into your email message?

I got it, and as expected, it's gibberish. Feel free to send it again in English. And no, I won't help you with it. I'm offering a challenge, not my services as a free English tutor. If you can't write it coherently, then I recommend getting someone to help you translate it into something understandable.

Fortunately, we have an English teacher in our midst. From the "cheating boyfriends" thread:

That post serves as yet another reminder of why I'm an English teacher.



I wonder if he will translate it from gibberish to English.

Michael, I apologize if my e-mail came thru to you as "gibberish". Perhaps the formatting did not transfer with the data when I cut and pasted it per your request. I do not believe I ever asked for, or implied that I needed, help with it. I acknowledge that we are in negotiation of my attempts to accept your challenge.

I will re-write the directions for operating my system and try to make the directions more understandable to you.

Oh please. It's plain text! There is no "formatting". The problem, as I said before, is that it's not written in understandable English.

You're right, you didn't imply that you needed help with it. I did. What you submitted is so fantastically far from understandable that I'm not going to accept any further submissions until you've had someone else help fix it. Otherwise, you'd submit an incomprehensible version, and I'd say "No", then you'd submit another incomprehensible version, and we'd keep going round and round and wasting my time.

It is by no means my intention to waste your time. My only purpose in pursuing this is to win the money that your challenge offers. To that end, I will continue to comply with your requirements.

As it is now a requirement that my System submission be proof-read and corrected, I am asking that those in the community that would be willing to help me please let me know.
