Without using an external data source, what is the significance of the number 11982?

Oooh! I feel like I should have gotten that! (Well, not really, but there was at least a chance I could have gotten that.)

Trivia: I have actually had game 11982 given to me. And that broke my attempt to get to 200 wins in a row. I was a little mad about that, but given the number of times I've broken the streak on my own, I guess it was nothing to get upset about.

An east coast zip code, but I forget which state.
(I went and looked it up - there is no actual zip of 11982. the closest I could find was 11980, for Carver Park, NY.)

Interestingly enough, according to Google, FreeCell game #11982 has been proven to be unsolvable.

Tsk tsk. Google is an external data source.

External vs internal is meaningless here, since Google is everywhere. You know, like God.

Ahh! I misread the question -- I though it was "with an external data source, what is the significance of..."

-1 Internets for me :(

Is it really? I thought they were all at least theoretically solvable. But I gave up freecell for 2-deck spider solitaire.

so I didn't comment. But, I took a few shots at it but my usual strategy was a complete bust very early. I think the problem comes down to formulating the possible moves of the game as a graph, and proving that it either is or isn't connected. I haven't thought hard enough about how to do that formulation, though.

When you don't watch TV, you have to fill time somehow.
