A couple of notes:

  *   Inspiration for this effort can be attributed to Justin O. It was his suggestion that kickstarted my efforts.
  *   By "CRNG" I meant cryptographically secure pseudo-random number generators: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographically_secure_pseudorandom_number_generator

Subject: Personal project: Infusion Gift Exchange Mailer

Greetings, Fluid-work!

Perhaps I'm a little late in the season, but I thought I would spread a bit holiday cheer. A couple of weeks ago, I whipped up a very basic Gift Exchange app in Infusion (think "Secret Santa"). The goal was twofold: for me to learn more about Infusion, and to produce a bit of software that I could use for the various holiday gift exchange schemes in my life.

You can find the glorious result here: https://github.com/BlueSlug/infusionGiftExchange

It's still quite rough around the edges, so please be gentle. In addition to learning more about the Infusion API, I ended up learning a whole lot more than I bargained for, with late-night reading on topics such as optimally time-efficient derangement generation (and what a derangement was, in the first place), CRNG's, email blacklist avoidance, and a refresher of my algorithm analysis studies from days of yore.

Enjoy!
