comment Counting all possible board positions in Quoridor
@lameK, I got 55 by writing a short computer program, but as I used an obscure language to do it I didn't see any benefit to sharing it. I'll add some examples to the last paragraph.

comment Can anyone extend my findings for Langford Pairings?
I don't actually see a question. If this is an attempt to follow David Eppstein's advice that for your ideas to be included in the Wikipedia page on Langford pairing you should first get them published, then you should be aware that he was talking about publication in a peer-reviewed journal, not on a Q&A site.

comment No simple closed form for Bell numbers
The premise of your question is somewhat unclear, because "closed form" is a somewhat variable quantity. Unless you allow factorials in a closed form, I can't think of any basic combinatorial quantity which has one. Allowing them lets in binomial coefficients and therefore Catalan numbers, but what else? Such basic combinatorial quantities as Stirling numbers and the partition function don't have well-known closed forms.
