I have been busy/distracted/absent for the past couple of days, courtesy of what I have taken to calling the comp sci problem set from hell. Or, specifically, the problem from hell. The TAs have never seen anything like it on an intro-level assignment. Most were confused as to what the hell our professor was even thinking. It took easily twice as long as every other problem on the pset combined. There was much panic in the computer cluster. By the end of it, I would gladly have killed someone for a single for loop.
Anyway. It’s finished, I’m alive, hopefully I’ll have time to work on the fic I owe people. The offending assignment is under the cut, just so anyone who knows scheme can sort of gawp sympathetically and/or laugh at my ignorance.
