Well, as the latest list shows I've 19 more to go, it will be a while before I get to the last one.

Subject: [jhb_airlines] Self Assignment Of Farm Strips


Earlier this week Frank Turley was asking Peter Dodds whether there were
to be any more farm strip assignments. I must admit I was relieved when
Peter took over responsibility for continuing the series and am
delighted he appears to have completed a system which will have seen
every one of the 87 strips visited. I was relieved because although
deciding the next hop, from arrival strip to next destination, was no
big deal, setting out the Lockyears listed data was a definite grind. It
was also a bit iffy, in terms of copyright issues.

Anyone who has completed the seies will, potentially, now have access to
the strip data, via the assignments that were posted. Like you, as a
farm strip addict, I'm left with the main problem, simply deciding where
to fly next. This morning I definitely didn't jump out of the bath, or
bed, shouting Eureka; because I try to slip into this room undetected. I
had, however, realised that the solution to the where to fly problem is
simple. Unlike RW flyers, we aren't based at a particular farm, so
normal constraints don't have to apply. So, our choices can be
random............

0730 saw me doing a Yahoo search for a Random Number Generator. Having
found one that handles only integers, it was easy to set it up to come
up with two random numbers, between 1 and 87. A couple of tries showed
that works OK.

Next it needs something to relate to, so I've cobbled together a
FarmStrip Menu. In this I've listed all 87, in alphabetical order, so
that there are no geographical continuities. Each strip has a number.

Next I just go to the saved address, listed below, and it comes up, in
this test, with 25 and 32. My menu shows these to be Dowland, in Devon,
and Greenlands, in Clwyd.

It's as simple as that, with no decision making required.

The Random Number Generator is at:


http://www.random.org/integers/?num=2&min=1&max=87&col=5&base=10&format=html&rnd=new

I'd be grateful if someone could confirm it does produce two numbers,
when reached via this download. If it does, and you want to use the
system, don't forget to save both address and menu, no after sales
service available.

You can even do what I intend to do; build up a menu of the non farm
airfields that you have in use on your own system.
