This article is the second summary of responses to the Reader Challenge. I'm covering solutions by Michael Price (again), Ilya Zaltsman, John Nowak and Stephen Morris. These are the fastest and cleanest solutions. I'll also cover the first entry that returned the actual values. Thanks again for your entries and I'm busy looking for another query for the next Reader Challenge.

I really didn't get any that I thought were especially obtuse. At least any more than any of the others

Why not reopen the challenge with the goal of submitting the most obtuse answer? I'd LOVE to participate (actually thought my solution was kinda obtuse)

I started writing a solution with 5 nested cursors but never got to finish it.
