Going very well!
Most of all I'm happy that they're fun to watch finally. The results are a nice bonus. Looking good for a top 4 finish that seemed out of reach just a few weeks ago

You could order all the flash cards like a deck. After a card is drawn, it is put back into the deck based off its history. A correct card goes to the very back of the deck while a card that isn't correct goes in the middle or closer to the front depending on your stored int. As long as this algorithm is balanced correctly, you could pretty easily control the draw rate of cards based off their history while making sure the same cards are are drawn at roughly even intervals.

Random variation could be put in by drawing not necessarily the first card in the deck. Say 50% the first card is drawn, 25% the second, 12.5% the third, etc.

So I want to make something to use with flash cards.
First thing I want is:
Cards that have a wrong streak should come up more often.  To give the person more practice.  
I'm thinking the last 20 attempts should be saved.  

This is pretty easy.  Store it as an int where the pattern is what was correct.  Simply shift.  Add 1 if it was correct.  Super efficient computationally.  

The other thing is, cards that haven't been used in a while should come up eventually.  

Saving the last few times a card was used, doesn't seem very efficient.  Saving the next time it's available seems to be the way to do it.  

It's not my favorite though.  

Next step up is saving the previous and the next.  Which is probably what I'll do.

Apparently my mom's mom's family is related to Allan Pinkerton.  Directly to one of his brothers.
