    let's say... C
    judging on the complexity of the contest themes, there shouldn't be too much difference, anyway

    finish your voting by tonight, when i'll post the contest thread (and ask nvoigt to make it sticky)

    forgot to mention this:
    this contest will be pure C. (and preferably as portable as possible)
    it looks like the phone book idea is winning, anyway.
