Oh yes, I answered to Jim H. (sorry Jim, I wrote "James").
And Bernd too, with a "taking-snapshot"-method.
And I also made a (non-math) "Sunday game" after that, see #57 here
Sometimes I wonder about the mechanism of the 'list machine'.
For example this thread is ordered, when choosing "messages sorted by thread" not co-sorted by time (within the same 'thread' depth).
p.s. The minus sign is there or not according to the 'orientation' when numbering the vertices of the polygon, counterclockwise or clockwise.
