- The Forth language problem solution given on August 26th gives a very snazzy RPN ('reverse Polish notation') calculator, but that's all it does the ':'-defining word needs access and look-ahead to the program parsed stream, and that's a bit more to ask than pushing and popping stack operators.
- For the August 29th problem(WordNet themes) the raw generated solution set is over 209M possibilities. My little Haskell program was not finished scanning them over four hours when I killed the process. However, my dear wife solved the problem in under five minutes. Setting aside the fact that she's a genius, the program needs to be better. It needs to use the ontology of English-language words to eliminate fruitless endeavors during their generation, not afterwards during the test phase.
