    The problem is that whey'll most likely end up writing some
    alghoritm (Wich i'm not good at ) because we can't do anything
    specific like Win32,DirectX or OpenGL cause alot of people will
    drop out.

    Sounds cool. I want to participate in a contest and I never have enough time, but if this is a "speed contest" then I'm sure I could pump something out.

    Count me in.

    Well the whole point of the contest would be to learn how, and implement it.

    An example of an extremely easy one which I did: Create a program which takes two filename arguments, infile and outfile. infile contains words, one per line. What the program needs to do is output each word in which all letters are adjacent to eachother in the alphabet to outfile. Case insensitive, plus identical adjacent letters are ignored.

    Example of infile:
    aBcd
    bDsf
    mEow
    aBcDeF
    aaaa
    bbcbabcde
    fdsj

    Outfile:
    abcd
    abcdef
    aaaa
    bbcbabcde

    Of course, this is a little on the simple site, i'll try to pick ones which are a little more difficult.
    Edit: Oh, and i'm in #cprogramming.com on DALnet, come on and show your support.

    how exactly will this be done? will there be a set time each day/week/month that people can come and there will be a contest? or will there just been an announcement each time there's going to be one?

    tried last night to go to #cprogramming.com, but couldn't connect.. maybe i'll try again tonight.
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    I'll announce the next contest ahead of time. I can tell you there will be one next weekend (not this weekend) i'm going away for the week. See my post on the #cprogramming.com thread about connecting to DALnet

    I'm glad you think so highly of me , but I'm sure there are people here more experienced than me who you should fear even more, if they choose to compete, that is.

    Come on, This is redicilous. Sure Polymorph owns, But what
    tells you he does on the contest task? I was under the
    impression polymorph rocked on complicated things such as
    polymorphic OOP programming (Duh....). And as whe'll most
    likely end up writing some kind of alghoritm, Polymorph has a
    good change to win.....wait a minute....i was supposed to
    convince the opposite! *giving myself a kick in the ass*

    Cute, Might this be the reason why nobody is in the
    cprogramming.com?
