Deadline for the Collatz Series program is approaching!

I know that many of you are working on the Collatz series programming challenge.  I know of two that are in progress, and a third that has been submitted.  There is just over two hours to get an entry in.

Even if you don’t get a completed program done, submit what you have.  The one entry that I have gotten so far has gotten the correct answer (but not the correct count).

There is a lot of computation in this problem.  If your program is taking more than ~5 minutes, you probably have a bug where you aren’t hitting an end condition for one of your loops.  Use a print() statement to help debug what is or is not working.
