Topic for February 1, 2005: Fitch's Card Trick

Five cards are selected from a deck. An assistant orders four of them. Then the magician steps in, and announces the identity of the fifth card.

The trick involves combinatorics, but how is it done? Zhe Hu provides a lovely GUIKit implementation of the trick.
