I'm making progress in my code, though I'm struggling with programming in ML. Though unlike most people, who are transitioning from C and Java and such and are having trouble with the functional aspect, I'm used to writing in Haskell, and I'm having trouble with the imperative aspect, and the convoluted (by comparison) syntax.

Instead I have to be thinking about copies and references, and I may as well be coding in Java. Grr.
