    > That would be Dean. He's...indisposed at the moment and won't be joining the discussion. But his "knowing" Stroustrup was limited to email exchanges, and it's common knowledge that Bjarne Stroustrup is good about answering his email.

    Yes. We pretty much established that he only thought he knew Stroustrup
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    That was one of the reasons, sure. Of course, I'm realistic enough to know that I was unlikely to be able to do it. While a few parts of my implementations were better, some were worse, and the majority showed a negligable difference. The result proves little more than I'm no better or worse than whoever wrote the code I compared against. It's a bit of a slap in the face seeing as how I have a massive ego.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Considering that it was you against a team of programmers, I'd say you fared well enough.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
