Yeah, that's fine, but I think we do a disservice to the poster if we ignore a potentially flawed assumption that will render the "solution" moot. Solving the problem of getting air into the tire doesn't help if there's still a nail through the casing, eh? :-) Though in Paul's case, it sounds like his audience's behavior is fairly predictable, so the assumption was OK. Sorta. Murphy's Law and all, I'd still check for an odd number of digits...
