My hectic schedule precludes posting a long explanation now, however I promise to deliver such within 72 hours. It will cover these points:<o:p></o:p>
a. Charlie is totally right, both in his theoretical expose and the simulator he designed. If. he provides his mailing address , I will send him a nice gift as a token of my appreciation.
b. I can still can perform the trick with any reasonable amount of numbered cards. My new method has zero failure rate ( MTBF=infinity) and requires no special background .
c. There is no contradiction between statements a. and b. due to the fact that some non-mathematical gimmicks are implemented.
d. Using a 250-card deck is especially easy- while for 100 decks B (the accomplice) must have a very good memory ( or consult a look-up table)- for 250 cards anyone can be a B (nice pun, Ady! ).–
5. Not being bound by any non-disclosere rules of magician societies I intend to share my secrets with you flooblers .
6. Someone might even try to exhibit his "ESP" by calling
me (or his buddy) at predefined time , providng 5 names (4 innocent victims + 1 B) and 5 numbers (both in any order) and getting on-line (preferrably on a loudspeaker) the right assignment.
7.There is more than one way to skin a cat.
