re: The lack of discussion here makes me think everyone is having the same trouble I am! My code works for the main worked example in part 1, but count...

The lack of discussion is because no one wants to do it, haha.

This problem has probably taken me 5+ hours over the entire weekend, and I still haven't gotten part 1...yet. I'm not too excited about this kind of problem because it just feels like a lot of...grunt work? I guess? The instructions feel too detailed, so I feel like I'm just some typist inscribing someone else's algorithm instead of actually coming up with the algorithm.


Agreed, I was reading the description over and over looking for what I missed rather than googling for better algorithms or a problem insight. I got through it - kind of - but it wasn't as fun as many of the others.
