    Default cryptarithm link...what do you guys think of this?

    This link made my brain hurt and this late in the day I don't have a chance to dissect it, but I thought this was interesting...maybe a way to combine letters/numbers? He calls them word arithmetic or "cryptarithms." I'm curious what ya'll think. I might look at this when my brain is freshly rested tomorrow. I'm calling it an evening soon.

    I've worked something like that in puzzle books, but the numbers began as actual words. We had to figure out what the answer word was, after replacing the known letters with numbers... Fun! :P
