Thank you so much for the wonderful analysis, Dr. John!

I happened to read this yesterday, on the eve of the Valentine's, and I didn't really regret not having a human Valentine (I have my two dogs who do make up for the same by the way!).

The credit goes to this mesmerizing article that I stumbled upon.

Wow! I mean, loved it.

Hats off to the beautiful soul (who probably believes in true love, now, whatever that may be!) who was indeed brilliant in coming up with the analysis (and somehow, stretching the probability of the method's viability to an appreciable 58%, finally!)

I would love to go through the Todd-Miller book as well. Thanks!

P.S. Well, in the 'Finding The Decision Numbers' section, I guess you seemed to have made a petty typo, is it? Third para. Last sentence. It must be {y^(k - j)}{(1 - y)^j}, right?

Not petty enough though! I wasted almost half an hour in figuring it out until something in me prompted me to scroll down, only to discover that it was nothing but a silly typo. Man!!

Please do consider editing the same, if possible.

Thank you!
