Jeff Atwood has written an amusing article on the P = NP problem.
I had a little chuckle reading the article (and the referenced blog post), as I've spent a reasonable amount of time struggling with the same problem in the guise of the Eternity II puzzle.
I have since learnt the error of may ways and decided to abandon any hope of finishing the puzzle. Sometimes the fastest way out of a hole is to stop digging.
