Lost In The Shuffle

One of the first problems I posted on Brilliant (once the format changed) was Snow Big Deal. But because it was so long ago, the problem did not receive much attention. It's still one of my favorites, so if you haven't seen it, do check it out. And reshare if you're so inclined. (The problem, not this note.) Thanks!

Nice problem Matt. At the moment I am trying to solve it.

Well, yesterday I made a comment in your 2 week old discussion 'Imaginary Triangle'. Will you please check it out and share your views?

And yes, I too submitted a problem today named "The Three Red Squares". I find it quite interesting but because I don't have much followers, it isn't getting much attention. It would be great if you check it out.

I like the squares problem! I started to solve it, but work is pulling me away.

Thanks :). Same is the case with me...tomorrow's English exam is not allowing me to concentrate on Snow Big Deal.
