I decided to solve the smoker's
problem<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cigarette_smokers_problem>to get
a feel for the language. Anyways the arbiter (Sally) never reaches
the end of her "loop". She stops "looping" after a seemingly random amount.
Sometimes once, but I've never seen her go above 300 repititions. Any ideas
as to what I am doing wrong?
thank you,
Jared Langson
