A computer programmer as he dies prints out a list containing the numbers from one to 999 to indicate the name of the person who is to be given his results.
None of the numbers from one to 999 include the letter “a,” but “one thousand” does. Hence the name of the person is “No-a.”
We have here yet another instance of an incredibly eccentric person coming up with an obscure brain-teaser for reasons which hardly seem sufficient. Nor is the puzzle really all that compelling.
