comment How should I remember what I was doing and why on a project three months back?
Oh yeah, once after a three month break from work, I was asked on a job interview to describe my last project. I did it, but when they asked for details, I could not for the life of me remember them. They turned me down because apparently I'm a phony if I can't remember that. This happened about 15 years ago, but I still remember it.

comment Why do so many hashed and encrypted strings end in an equals sign?
@WillieWheeler I think you are missing the point. Re-read what Brian S wrote - he was not talking about properties of base64 for hashing - that would be absurd base64 is not a hashing algorithm. He is saying that there is nothing wrong with storing a hash (produced by a hash function/algorithm) in base64 form.

comment Algorithm for searching images within images
This gave me a good starting point, and soon I arrived at this: nowozin.net/sebastian/tu-berlin-2006/libsift I think this should be adequate for my purposes. I bit of work will be required to extract the matching logic from the sources, but nothing insurmountable. Thanks.

comment Best techniques for an AI of a card game
It looks like I'm in a very similar situation to you, also card game, also local one (not Switzerland though) and I'm also trying to understand where I start. One thing that I found interesting is an evolver, where you assign DNAs to virtual players, and then pit them against each other. You kill the loosers and you breed the winners. The result could be quite decent AI bots. I have not figured out how adapt this tropiceuro.com/puerto-rico-evolver for my card game but I think this is possible.
