Minesweeper Solved

Back in 2006, summer, Lebanon faced a nationwide attack on infrastructure. Life as we knew it was crippled.
We were mostly away from direct fire, but still went away from our house to our aunt's. We played minesweeper to keep entertained. The game became competitive until my finger started exhibiting pain due to the extremely fast clicking. An algorithm was needed.
Over the course of the week, I continuously thought about solving the game automatically and be crowned king of the hill.

The algorithm was a success: it worked and it was such a pleasant experience to create.
I've uploaded a presentation and the project source files up so that you can check it out.
