- March 31st, 2017: We look at pedestrian-vehicular injuries and fatalities for today's #haskell problem. Today's #haskell solution creates an array of maps to get our scanr-solution. I'm game.
- March 29th, 2017: What with #marchmadness it's time we put #haskell to solving this task, besides: BABY NEEDS A NEW PAIR OF SHOES!
- March 28th, 2017: You ever have one of those days where you know you were supposed to do SOMEthing? "Today's" #haskell problem.
- March 24th, 2017: Tennis is very good exercise, and a very good #haskell exercise for today. AHA! #probability
- March 23rd, 2017: Today's #haskell problem examines the importance of wearing matching ... RED?!?! ... socks? Remember that one (one?) wacky professor in college? Today's #haskell solution shows that was the tip of the iceberg.
- March 22nd, 2017: Today's #haskell problem definitively proves Goldbach's Conjecture for ALL even numbers ... um, in a sample set. Today we definitively proved Goldbach's Conjecture. See you at the pub, then, eh?
- March 20th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem: 2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + ... what prime numbers can be written as a sum of consecutive primes? So there are primes from the sum of consecutive sequence of primes starting at 2, but there's a lot more to it, too!
- March 17th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem is brought to you by the letter 'P': primality and permutations. Today's #haskell solution shows this projecteuler.net problem has clear bounds, which made it a gimme for me.
- March 16th, 2017: If you break it down, finding the square-free numbers in a set of 614 numbers isn't that hard. Today's #haskell problem. Winnowing down makes testing for prime-square factors much easier in today's #haskell solution.
- March 15th, 2017: For today's #haskell problem we deconstruct the construction of the Pascal's Triangle. Today's #haskell solution involves some BIG NUMBERS! ... Good thing Haskell is a mathematical language, then! 😎
- March 14th, 2017: For today's #haskell problem, being π-day, we are going to look at the convergence of e, via projecteuler.net. Continued fractions are so easy in #haskell that it was embarrassing writing this code!

Today's #haskell solution gives us a super-fast minimumest path through DNA strands, ... or does it? So, the error for last-element terminating early in minimumest path is corrected, but we still have work to do!
- March 1st, 2017: Informed, or guided, subsequencing? That's what we'll be looking at for today's #haskell problem. Today's #haskell solution shows that, even though informed, common subsequences explode for even small sequences.

Tuesday, February 28, 2017
- February 28th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem is a 'little' side-excursion to ask: why don't finite lists have embedded length? So, the #haskell solution has lists with embedded length in a few lines of code. Sweet!
- February 27th, 2017: Gearing up to take on large sequences and subsequences for today's #haskell problem. Subsequences of size x delivered in today's #haskell solution, but not a silver bullet!
- February 24th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem invites you to RULE THE GALAXY TOGETHER AS FATHER AND SON! with Binomial distributions. Darth Vader was right (then again, when is he ever wrong?) when he said: "Binomial distributions rock!" ... probably

SO! MANY! BUNNEHZ!
for today's #haskell solution.
- February 20th, 2017: length list is O(n) ... is there a better way than length? We look at that in today's #haskell problem. Usually you're doing something to a list other than length; today's #haskell solution uses that other information.
- February 17th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem looks at offspring of parents with multiple traits. My answer for today's #haskell problem includes crossing traits, and needs work on probabilities!

- February 13th, 2017: We look for the majority element in small lists, then in large lists for today's #haskell problem. As of now, only 953 IN THE WORLD have solved this #rosalind problem. Are you going to be one of the elite 1,000 to have solved it? Today's #haskell solution traverses only some of the list to find the majority element.
- February 10th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem is about "binary search," according to rosalind.info; but I think this is easy. Using Data.Map.Map today's #haskell solution finds the indices in binary-search time!
- February 9th, 2017: For today's #haskell problem, we look at fibonacci numbers, ... then we go large. Today's #haskell solution is a little bit of fibo-nacci-ness ... and more than just a little bit!
- February 8th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem looks at a population by genotype to compute expected offspring via rosalind.info. We find out that there are a LOT of bunnies out there with dominant genotypes for today's #haskell solution.
- February 7th, 2017: Today's #haskell exercise looks at sets from sets using set-operators... not that I'm a Set theorist, or anything... update: I've added a bonus to today's #haskell exercise: read in a pair of gzipped sets from rosalind.info and write out the answer to file. Today's #haskell solution uses Data.Set operators and a bit of category theory. Answer is a set of very big sets!
- February 6th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem we return to rosalind.info to look at number of subsets of sets and applications. Sections rule the day for today's #haskell solution to subsets of sets

- January 27th, 2017: Today's #haskell problem is a little word-guessing puzzle. Today's #haskell solution is another puzzle: To which band do witches band? Will we ever know?

- Side note: I had no problem processing 200k size text document using String, but, hey: knock yourselves out with Text for text processing.
- January 9th, 2017: For today's #haskell exercise we take a leaf from @bitemyapp via @Jose_A_Alonso and look into Data.Aeson quasiquotes. Using Data.Aeson.QQ today's #haskell solution basically wrote itself.
