I had problems with invalid results on the duel server, which I first couldn't repeat during testing. Hopefully, the problem is solved now. I found an unhandled exception that I have fixed. I made a new submission, which also included some small adjustments of the algorithms. It has only competed two times, but at least it hasn't failed yet. Only one win, though.

The submission won the first duel. Cool! Maybe it is not completely useless after all.

Now I have uploaded the first submission to the duel server. It uses a really simple strategy and has no optimizations whatsoever. It will probably get crushed, but it is still an important milestone.

I have implemented a few useful components today, but I still haven't got anything that I can submit to the duel server. Hopefully, it is not that far away, though. I have thought a lot about strategies, but I don't really know what kind of approach that might be successful.

The implementation of the card set was almost finished yesterday. I think I need some test cases before continuing. Maybe I can do that before breakfast.

The contest has been running for 16 hours, but I got back from work only a couple of hours ago. I have been reading the task description and trying to understand the problem. Now it's time to start to write some code.

After lot of manual work we now think we have found the gate logic. We have put together an identity operator circuit to get the input string from the server. Now we need to write an engine to execute the circuit code in order to find the desired key prefix.

The 13th ICFP contest has started. This year's contest is all about cars and fuel. Should suit us well, hopefully. Currently we are just trying to understand the problem. It seems rather complicated...
