Unfortunately, no. I ctrl-C'd it after about 15 hours. I used a
particularly bad choice of algorithms because I was in a hurry, and I
I ended up making some stupidly, dramatically, *painfully* inefficient
algorithms to reduce the complexity of the data structures.
It *is* done, though. And I know it works on smaller data sets. (No,
you can't look at the code. It's too embarrassing.)
Eh, better that I learn that lesson *now* than in the industry...
