I'm not publishing the list of solvers this month because I inadvertently erased emails from most of the people who returned solutions. I could have posted the names of the few that I didn't erase, but that didn't seem fair, so I leave this space blank, with profuse apologies to all of you who sent in correct solutions before the hints were posted. I promise it won't happen again.
