in thread (Golf) mobile phone numbers -> words

Hi tye, lost the plot in the translation from 3exp10 as I wrote to decimal. Register error. I failed to register my error!

To absolve myself from moronicity I will have to code a respnse now. Damn you (red baron)! I just hate it when people point out my calculations are a *mere* 50805 orders of magnitude off.

Despite that fundamental error the basic binomial point is valid. For any ten digit number we are most likely to find a solution from several small words rather than one big word:

For example, here are some 10 letter possibilities:

Colt Firearms: very-big-gun; rat-a-tat-tat; you-are-dead;

Perl Security: the-perl-kid; perl-hacker; naughty-boy; the-perl-man; perl-secure; now-at-intel; perl-busted; lawyer-crap; in-hot-water; im-ok-for-now; just-call-us; dont-foobar; we-know-perl;

Perl lyrics: p-p-p-p-p-p-perl; shes-my-baby;.....p-p-p-perl, I don't mean maybe.

Losing the plot: sleep(rand*28800)
