I just thought I would see if I got the right answer to this.

Since the longest serpent aligns the least times I worked on that. I got that it has to do 21,945 rotations. Given that each rotation of that requires 92 presses of the 5 key I got a total of 2,018,940 presses. Am I right, wrong, not even close?

Wow!

I had no idea people were still interested in my old puzzles at all.

The answer, Scott, is 2018940; you're right!

Have you tried my latest puzzle yet?

Has anybody tried it, just to verify that it's correct? Maybe bdcribbs can do it in his perfect game. :)

I think Wesley also mentioned that it would take years to check. Not to mention, what if you lost count at about 1 million? That would suck.

I don't think it would take years, more on the order of a month and a half assuming 30 frames a second, and no breaks.

It's not that bad!

At a refresh rate of 30 moves per second, it would take 17 hours, 46 minutes and 38 seconds to do (without breaks)

Okay, I suppose you're saying there are 60 minutes in an hour as opposed to 24? Oh wait... umm... oops... :buh
But still, I'm getting more like 18 hours, 41 minutes, 38 seconds. :huh
