@Zewde: Could that puzzle be used somehow to some sort of practical end or application?

My "knee-jerk" reaction is to say "Almost certainly!" I base this on the fact that I don't recall learning anything that did not eventually come in handy for something or other :-)

I do so love it when Excel is used for electonics purposes. However in your case I see it was only a tool to support your insight.

I hope you don't mind if I subvert the thread and point your readers to my blogs on the use of Excel in electronics on Planet Analog. There are at least 4 more to come over the next 6 months. One is due out any day now.

Great analysis, David!  Wonder who first invented this puzzle?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
