> Stephen Beckingham has been a bit of a superstar and just sent me the attached spreadsheet, which beautifully and clearly analyses the repeated strings of notation in Simon Melen’s monster extent of triples. (Stephen is happy for me to share here). Can you say a few words on how you generated this, Stephen?

Nothing terribly groundbreaking I'm afraid - paste the place notation into excel, write a bit of code to produce the possible blocks of place notation (to save doing it by hand), add in a formula that counts the occurrences of each block in the peal, then repeat, adding on one change at a time.
