Not a particularly productive day. Some interesting stuff
about linear logic programming in Linlog.

I'm beginning to change my immediate reaction to discovering
that some problem or another is undecidable; instead of being
disappointed or attempting to rephrase the problem to achieve
decidability, I think I should instead look at the problem
space as being complicated enough to admit arbitrary programming.
That is, as a candidate for an interesting programming language
or paradigm or something. I guess it goes without saying
that not every undecidable problem is an interesting/ideal way
of programming, but it's probably worth finding out in each

    Played some more Shenzhen I/O. The later puzzles are getting straight up hard. Had some fun optimizing the earlier ones, though.
