Curious, Are You?

Surprisingly enough, the cribbage page that I wrote three years ago is one of my most popular pages. I've been asked to comment on rules, to give advice on the creation of AI players, and to advertise, who added me to their links and sent me a letter of congratulations (oh joy!).

I wrote it because someone sent a letter asking for advice on writing a proof that no 19-point hand exists. Having switched in my own career from theoretical Physics to Computer Science, I felt obliged to demonstrate that brute force computation has grown in importance as a technique for attacking problems.
