Alright, this is kinda awesome. I'm getting #AdventOfCode Day 16's solve consistently now after tracking down a bug that I managed to implement four times in a row. The runtime is around 16-17 seconds which isn't great. So, implemented a cache, got the time down to .4 seconds. However, it now returns a different answer each run...this is insane

Alright #AdventOfCode, I appreciate Day 6 but I'm gonna need you to kinda figure out whether you're going for "punch you in the face" or "gentle hug" with respect to challenge level. However, I *did* get to break out some math on the iPad which made me happy...

So, finally broke down and looked for some hints on #AdventOfCode for Day 5. Got everything coded up, looking good, and still getting the wrong answer for part 2. Annoying, but I've been here before. Then decided to run the code from someone else's answer on my input data and *got the same wrong result*. Probably gonna shelf this one and move on for the time being.

Okay, went ahead and added the thinking behind the math in my #AdventOfCode Day 6 solution. Figured it would answer a few questions from friends also doing AoC, and I love me some math.

Oh yeah, #AdventOfCode Day 5...part two is kicking my ass in about every way possible. Think I'm going to take a break for a bit then re-re-rethink the solution. Friggin' almanacs...
