Feels a bit like putting something back together, it working, and having parts left over.
Reminds me of a class in college where the professor was a complete prick. The 2nd half of his final exam gave you a list of around 50-60 8085 assembly language instructions. The problem was to write a routine which accepted certain arguments in specific registers and did a particular thing. You were allowed to use each instruction from the list only once. My original solution used only about 40 of the instructions. Since I had plenty of time, I figured out another solution that used all of the instructions exactly once.

When he was grading my final project, he was going to flunk me because I wasn't finished. He relented and decided to look at my exam scores. I had a perfect score on the midterm, and a perfect score on the final. I was one of only three people to get the 2nd half correct.

He was somewhat indignant when I told him I'd been writing 8085 assembly language for two years at that point Shucks | :-\ . I got a C in the course.
