I've said nothing of the sort.

you've implied it. On the one hand you claim to have enjoyed the contest while it was running, while you claim to have wasted your time, and have as much as said you wish you hadn't bothered. If I'm reading too much into what you've written, please ignore me.
The impression you have been giving everyone is that you think you wasted your time because you didn't find the magic I-IX formula. I don't think anyone understands where you're coming from.
I personally think the contest was biased against Ton. He'd discovered/invented the formula for another contest, and his solution was published. If that contest hadn't been run, he'd won by another three strokes!
