hi friends,
this is the solution of my ice riddle.

this new riddle is the opposite of the first one: it seems a problem of volume but is a problem of weight. the most important thing here is that the ice and the water are the same chemicals, the first in a solid state and the second in a liquid state.

because the ice displaces a volume of water equal to its own weight (principle of archimedes again) and because its weight remains the same when it melts then, when the ice melts, the water produced will fill exactly the volume displaced so the level of water will remain the same.

game over.

If you have the time one day, could you mail me some in one email and the answers in another email. I love puzzels. The last one kept me thinking for days. I like such things :-)

The forum email function is out of order. Guess what? It is the isp again! Surprised? naaaa. He was using a trial program and has not paid for it. The trial period stopped July 30. New members doesn't even get their passwords until the jerk pays for the program. If you hit "register" in the menu there is a working email to me at the bottom of the policy.

I wish it was, but it is not a joke. The last few emails I  myself received from the forum had this little note at the bottom about remembering that the trial ended 30. July. I was about to call them then, because I was very uninterested in having the forum sending out emails with such footers attached to them, but I thought that it would only last a couple of days until they typed in their serial. I guess they never bothered to buy that serial. And the WebMail has stopped functioning as well. "Because it somehow made their server go down bla bla"

So now I have sent my complaint #xxxx I have no idea how many I have sent, but it is REALLY many.
