Good idea, there seems to be a lot of ideas floating around.

Anyways, I've just been trying to progress with ZB, I haven't given 
up on it. Not sure why, maybe I'm just more okay with holding on to 
a lot of algs in my memory.

Today I finished learning all the L1 algs from my page:

I started using some T1 algs I haven't fully learned, but I guess 
Sune compositions aren't hard to work with. So I have have about 1 
or 2 algs left to finish all the No CP ZBLL.

I have been forgetting Case 6 algs again, and Case 8+9 aren't 

I should make a few revisions to the last 4 there, but I have lots 
of hw tonight.

This should take over the 32% mark for ZBLL...
