[This is filler to make sure that you don't see the solution by accident if you happen to see the first few lines of this file while you're using a Web-browser like Altavista to locate the S.R.A.T.]


It's no coincidence that this spells out an odd message if spaces are added appropriately. When I created the S.R.A.T. for a party in 1993 or so, it was one of a chain of puzzles, each of which gave clues for the next; in particular, the sentence DAD BEDDED A BAD BAD BABE was one of several hints to the identity of the movie "Fatal Attraction". (The other puzzles from this chain, most of which involved physical objects in one way or another, are unavailable.)

Martin Henz at the University of Saarland (henz@comp.nus.edu.sg) solved the S.R.A.T. using a constraint-programming language and then wrote a report explaining what he'd done.
