Mortal Coil

Mortal Coil is a fun programming challenge at http://hacker.org/coil

I've spent a bunch of time on this, doing both algorithm design and (python!) optimization.

There are a few approaches.

There is also lots of caching that can be done.

Nobody I know has gotten far with abstract analysis beyond simply looking for dead ends - but there are clearly some opportunities for it.

But in the end, computers are so fast, why not just try lots of combinations?

Get a job!

The CEO of Roblox tweeted out an invite for an interview for people who do well enough at it! https://twitter.com/davidbaszucki/status/667173653574914050?lang=en
