This one seems impossible:

Not at all. But it's a nice find!

Ah. Yes. You are right! Why didn't I see that...

I'd still like to see comic bakery loader theme played on this device.

(No spoilers) I've got 4/3. Is a better solution possible?

How to use Zeugma on VICE emulator:

Go to the Settings menu and select Cartridge/IO settings
Select REU settings
Enable REU and set size to 16mb
Browse to the z-file you want to play. (You may need to rename the extension to .reu first.)
Run the Zeugma program.

So far I have not got a game to run, but the error message I see - "z-machine version 0 not supported" - gives me hope I am making some progress.

The intended solution is indeed 4/3. Well done! I haven't found a better way, but who knows.

Check the earlier comment from johnwbyrd. VICE requires you to pad the file to the correct size.

I'll give the first "hint". For my solution to give an expected value of 4/3, I assumed that a patient doesn't immediately die when donating blood.

Draw a small amount of blood from two of them and give the blood to the other. ⅓ of the time you will have drawn from A and B and everyone will die. Otherwise, you will have drawn from O and one other. O will die but the other will still be alive, and you can use O's blood for the other two. This assumes that the small amount mixed into O's bloodstream now won't kill the third one upon receiving more blood from O though.

Thanks for a great explanation of infrequently discussed, arcane, but essential part of the Unix/Linux "reptile brain". Required knowledge for anyone who hopes to use Unix/Linux beyond a novice level.

I assume Hr doesn't matter and the amount of blood removed and necessary to save one patient doesn't kill immediately the donor.

Solution: Pick two patients randomly. Spill from the receiver a transfusion and keep the blood aside. Transfuse from donor to receiver. 1/3 of times the donor is O and receiver doesn't die immediately. Restore the receiver blood and do another transfusion from the donor to the other patient. You saved 2 people.
2/3 of times the donor is A or B and the receiver dies immediately. Reverse the transfusion.
In 1/2 of times the receiver was O. The corpe contains compatible blood and the reverse transfusion saves the original donor. The blood aside is O and useful to save the other patient.You saved 2 people.
In the other 1/2 of times the receiver is not O and all the patients die.
Therefore: 1/3*2 + 2/3*1/2*2 + 2/3*1/2*0=4/3

By the way, your projects are marvelous and very inspiring. Thanks!
