Postcard from Woz

The best way to get an answer from Apple in the early days (and sometimes still) was to include a self-addressed post card with your letter. Joe used this method in 1977 when he inquired about floating point BASIC for the Apple 1. He recieved the following reply, from Steve Wozniak himself:

Reverse

The rules for REVERSE

The object of REVERSE is to play a list of the digits from 1 to 9 which
are in random order into order from 1 to 9 in as few moves as possible.

Each move consists of reversing from 2 to 9 digits starting from the leftmost
