Got up noticed that 1 computer finally finished all the U5 cases. So 
I posted them.

that wasn't the orignal idea, if it hadn't been for one case taking 
7 hrs to do, I would have had it out there already. I have two 
coputers going at it. One does all the 431 then 777; the other does 
all the 777 then the 431. Hopefully they meet int he middle 
somewhere and I can merge the results together and post in 2/3 the 
time (one machine is faster). But I fell asleep so one did all the 
work after I stopped the other one, since there was only one case 

I started running the U6 on two computers this way. 7 cases there, 
so 14 runs. They should meet in the middle in 4 hrs or so.

Do note however that U6 and T6 cases are inverse of each other... 
running these seems a little redundent, but I think Chris wants me 
to do them anyways.

With U-Orientation done, I'll go back and re-do U1 and all the T 
cases just to have them in case we need them and for completeness 

I have one more final exam left. Hopefully then I can start posting 
H1 alg, followed by some U2, some Pi1, some S1.... in that order...
