RS characters take about 1 msec per character at baud. Through the luck of being in the right place at the right time I managed to land an engineering job while barely in college. And as for data hiding. Again, as an engineer I found ways to thwart the microprocessor's confused states.

I remember starting engineering school and being overwhelmed by the curriculum, the physics, and the vast amount of math I'd somehow have to master. Do you need to eliminate bugs in your firmware? Even though the deck averages to 8, the chance of the card actually being an eight is far lower than the chance of it being a ten.
Description: In fact, when you do read all of the information you've gathered, your best option is to go with the ones that you, as a player, believe are sound and plausible.
