I love this! Christie, we can tell everybody that we both got Q3 right -- and nobody can prove otherwise!

çhristie has the bringer of jollity correct. Canadian trivia which no one would remember includes the fact that the little da-da-dah tune in Jupiter was the original CTV news theme back in 1961.

2- 1 - 4 - 3.

If I had used alphabetic order,it would be 1 - 2 - 3 - 4. (the identity permutaion, or transformation, i.e no change at all)

which of course BAM never used AFAIK for a FF question.

I have been trying to find the reference that failing to use the identity transformation was important to decoding Enigma, but I cant
