Re: within 3 days

... one thing that strikes me is that it might not be clear when the counter starts. A researcher might start off with a nagging suspicion, run a few trials, getting more sure over a period of weeks or months, until eventually setting up the test that nails the problem. Does the three days run from "nailed it!", or from "I'm 90% sure" a week before, or what? What would a hostile prosecution case like to claim, and how might that differ from the researcher's view?
