Subject: Brute Force vs. Selective Search Re: Fernando & Jim

I contacted a technical advisor from Saitek in Hong Kong who assured me that
Brute Force was superior to Selective Search. His reason was that Brute Force
searches more extensively and therefore minimizes the risk of an occasional
oversight. Apparently the Selective Search is quicker but not as thorough. So,
from this I would assume that IM Larry Feldman was wrong or misinformed. It is a
shame that he has not responded to my query. However, it does appear he was not
correct in what was stated in his review.
