RE comment about "Hop, Skip and Jump",

"By the way, I enjoyed your jumping game; the best I found was the 321321321 which I encoded in my comment -- for which my apologies if I gave offense.  ADJNLHCMNR somehow lacked in euphony."

I would hardly think there would be any cause for Charlie to take offence, very frequently members in the past have voiced solutions
