It's over. It's over. It's over. Takes a little while to really sink in, but now that I've finished my degree in Computer Applications (and what a truly fun degree it was!) at DCU, I'm free to do all those things I planned to get into during college but never had the time.
But I still haven't really done any of it, except for starting to learn Eiffel. Anyway, I'll have to get cracking before I find a job, or I might never start on it.
Just in case anyone is interested in a (not very)proof-of-concept program where you can train the TD(λ) players against either other temporal difference learners or against random players and view the plays made in a single game, I've put up the windows/linux binaries here.
