Ahh, Solitaire. That wonderful game where no-one can seemingly decide on the rules (one card draw? 3-card draw? can cards come back from the piles at the top without it being cheating?) .. :)

I have to admit, I've never seen the point in it, except for filling those bored moments between projects ...

    I find that it's useful for getting my mind off a sticky problem, allowing the problem to work subconsciously. Often after a bout of solitaire, the answer will be waiting for me.

    Losing most of the time and accepting it gracefully is good real-world training.
