Above and Beyond" solution by pjg

This is not the "official" solution


Feel free to write and upload a better solution
if you want to do so, otherwise, corrective modifications
to this solution are welcomed and encouraged.
6/16/2000 - MjS - Added 2 alternate puzzle solutions, noted
scoring bug (fixed in 1.1) and added to amusing list.
Good job, PJG.
6/20/2000 - pjg - corrected cumulative point totals for version 1.1
For game version 1.0 or 1.1
Other game versions may be slightly different.
This game is very linear and a lot of snooping around
is required to solve it. Knowledge of future events
is required for some of the puzzles.
Examine and Search do different things.
If you get stuck then consult the relevant
section of the solution for help.
Also, this game has the very nice "Winnable" command
and some built in hints.

Save game files are named according to the score.
Takes about 600 moves.
Comments and points are in ()
