A few weeks ago, I attended Information Mapping Inc.'s training seminar, and
they used the same excercise. The only differences were that the instructions
(of course) had to be info mapped, and there was no requirement that the
leggo object move.

Then again, all of us in the seminar had been out of school for a while, maybe
we wouldn't have been able to handle a more complex construction....
