Well, before I die I'll note the current state of OOP.
I'm at 4/5 now, in no small part due to helpful commentary.
I'm really farting around at this point; I'm trying to write code to generate neural nets, and I barely know how those work. I can at least see if what I think I'm supposed to do is happening when I write certain things, though.
Quick Addendum: I typed in almost precisely what Pudge had up in the comments on the last journal entry, and managed to store and retrieve data with the set and get subs. I feel that's fairly significant (getting a hash value set opens the door wide) so I'll crash for the night.
