|My day was spent trying to speed up the Life program I wrote yesterday. Nothing I did made it faster, though some improvements crept in. Finding that nothing changed, I wrote a stress test program to find out some specifics about the Wiz/GP2X's systems. The idea behind this was that the bottleneck might not be where I expected it to be. This highlighted a few possible routes, but I was out of time to try them today.
Tomorrow I'll see about implementing them; who knows, it might do something.
Lastly, here's a page that discusses Life in detail.
