    I think a good contest would be to find a useful purpose.. for like some off the wall obscure overloaded operator.. like the (), or []

    i've got an idea too...

    if you really wanted to have an AI contest where your program learns and adapts, i think a no-limit poker tournament would be a great idea. the downside is that it would be a rather large project for very little return and you would probably need AT least 5-6 people to do it to be worth it at all. of course, then again, since poker is 50% luck, not everyone would need to have a real complex AI...no plans yet....but just out of curiosity, would anyone be interested?

    (sorry to steal your thread brain)
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.

    I like the idea of programs competing with eachother, be it connect four, poker or something else. We could see how the currect contest turns out and if it works I'm sure there will be people willing to participate in a similar contest.

    Neither of those are obscure. Try && or ||, or better yet, the comma operator.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
