It is very important to know always the windspeed.
There are several ways to find it out.
The Wyoming Wind Sock outside the National Weather Service Office Cheyenne, Wyoming is a really convincing one.
He came from far away and found a really strange world.

The Alphametic is an equation consisting of alphabetic characters
instead of numeric ones.
For calculating the equation the alphabetic characters have to be exchanged by numbers.
Therefore there are up to ten different letters for the possible digits in the equation.
After changing back the characters into numbers only one single combination gives a proper result of the Alphametic.
The Alphametic Solver can also be used to verify Alphametics. At the end the application reports the necessary runtime in milliseconds.
The runtime depends on the speed and the load of the computer, the comlexity and length of the Alphametic, and last but not least on the speed of the used program or the used browser. The graphical overview shows these aspects.
These examples might help to understand the special properties of Alphametics.
Have you ever solved a Sudoku? Was the solution right? Was it the only solution? Concerning the high number of possible variants it is a really challenging question.
If you don't believe in this or a proper solution can't be found in time, the Sudoku Solver will help. It doesn't surrender before it has seen evey single possibiliy. Except if it has found already ten solutions. Then it simply breaks. Otherwise the cycle counter shows the complexity of the Sudoku.
