I think it would be a good challenge. However, I don't know a thing
about artificial intelligence, and I think that the computer would
have to have at least some intelligence to make it worth while. Also,
I only know how to program in BASIC, and I think that this might be a
major drawback. How many moves ahead would the calc have to think, and
how would it interpret the results? How long would it take for the
calc to make up its mind, do you think?
