Dear Mike Ossipoff,

I had posted the Floyd algorithm in a private mail (30 April 2000)
to David Catchpole, Blake Cretney, Steve Eppley, Rob Lanphier,
Norman Petry, and you. In your 28 Feb 2001 mail (i.e. about 10
months later), you mentioned your "Greatest Beatpath Magnitude
algorithm" for the very first time. Therefore, it is clear that
your claim, that you had invented this algorithm before I posted
the Floyd algorithm to you, is not correct.
