    New Contest!!!!

    OK. Enough of the who can do the best code contests. My contest has finally arrived!

    What you do- Make a simple C/C++ program that dispays "CPROGRAMMING.com RULES!".


    The object of this is to make the hardest, largest unreadable code for the program!


    You will be graded on....


    Difficulty reading- 1- 10 (10 being hardest to read)

    Size after built- 1-10 (10 being largest)

    Dependacy- 1-10 on how often it runs correctly



    Just paste your source here!

    No just all the contests are too serious and you have to make your work perfect. Just thought it would be fun.

    You know I'm sorry I'm trying to lighten things up. OK lets do this contest then. You must make a program that automatically tells you the stock market. No funny stuff. Must be very serious making it too. Wow talk about fun! Or we could do something simple and have a little creative fun with it.

    So, Zakk, basically, you want to do this? Oh well, that's fun... but I don't think you're allowed to run your own contests. If you get approval to run it, I'll join. But by "dependency" do you mean that it's good if it only works sometimes, or it should always work?
    Away.

    Thats almost exactly what I was talking about. I knew great minds think alike! I mean it shouldn't always work too great. Like the more errors you get the better your score would be. I didn't really think it through too much. just thought about it and posted.

    An Obfustication contest is all well and good, but three things:
    1) The program must work correctly every time, even if it's doing something simple. If that's no longer a requirement, you might as well pull a program from /dev/random, put braces around it, and submit it in.

    2) Wait for the current contest to end before suggesting anything new.


    3) It's up to the moderators if you want to run a contest. Ask them.

    I've got a brick sitting on my desk.

    Really though... The highest score to the program which is the most absurdly difficult to read and has the most errors.

    Hang on... I've got a rather large core dump file somewhere around here to submit.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
