Yesterday I wrote the modulus operator for the WDR Paper Computer[1].

It's a tiny computer with only 5 instructions: add1, sub1, jump to line#, end program, and is-zero?.

My conclusions so far about paper computing:
- It's really fun to figure out clever ways to write programs using a limited instruction set!
- Running programs by hand is pretty tedious and gets old fast. ^__^

I'm pretty pleased with the result though -- this feels pretty elegant. ^_^
