Two weeks ago, as many of you know, we made an initial announcement in the
Whyville Times that the Whyville staff was trying to find a solution to a
growing clothing crisis at Akbar's. The problem, put as simply as possible, is
that you Whyvillians are simply too successful in producing more and more face
parts, and as a result the storage space (database) at Akbar's is filled to
overflowing. Also, with so many designs in Akbar's, new designs by new
designers are often buried in deep piles and hard to find.
What we thought
would make sense was to have face parts last for only a certain amount of time.
In the real world, no clothes last forever!! (Yes, real world noses don't
disappear, but you also can't pick and choose your nose without expensive and
risky surgery...! Heheh.) If each new design lasted for only 3 months, for
example, then lots of Whyvillians would have many more opportunities to make
designs, and poor Akbar could come out from under the deep pile of old designs.
