    Is there any chance of a more complete explanation about the limit to 3200 characters? I have read this thread but, I would like a more complete explanation if one is available.

    3200 is the limitation because of the way the locations are calculated, as I mentioned in that other thread. The way this is done is by taking the page, which consists of 40 lines, and 80 characters per line (40 x 80 = 3200), and then converting that to a number in base 10. The number is then ran through an inverse PRNG (pseudo-random number generator) to find the seed which will generate the number, and that seed is the location of the page (hex, wall, shelf, volume, page number).
