About this project: I took part in the
Netflix Prize, to try to improve

shortly after and never made it back on. So it goes! The strategy I used for
that submission was doing a movie-based correlation while correcting for the
mean rating of each user.
Due to the large volume of data, I did this project mostly in C++. Here are my source files:
