An enjoyable puzzle, even though it didn’t take long to crack. A 1.5*/3* for difficulty/enjoyment. Thank you Jay.

This is my swan song, so again thank you for all your support. It has been a gas. I’ll say adieu for now with this: “Old bloggers never die – they just can’t remember their passwords!”.
