Brian - source code on it's way... not that it gives any insight into the solution - it only knows the answer, but doesn't understand it.

Roulette wheel sampling? Perhaps you'd like to explain this SilverKnight lol - I've been typing and deleting over and over trying to explain it properly and failing time and again... All I can say is that an imaginary roulette wheel is divided into slices proportionate to the fitness score of each gene, and the wheel is spun (at random), and wherever the ball lands, that's your gene! I'm sure there must be a clever wordy way to say that but it's all I can think of lol
