Having spent years working inside the sausage factory, it's a lot more involved than it appears. Don't pay attention to that man behind the curtain :-)

I remember when IBM's "deep blue" won a chess match with a grand master (Gary Kasparov?). The behind the scene story was that the supercomputer was designed, built and programmed for UAL to figure out the fares for the airline giant. The heuristics that go into the job of trail assignments for CM approach that order of magnitude. Hats off to Greg and Neil, and please cut them a break.

Happy cruisin'!
