    Text Compression Contest -- Sept. 28, 2002

    Text Compression Contest Sign-Up

    Details at the link. This contest ends on October 10.

    Can you create the best text compressor here? Want to show off your stuff? Or maybe you're just bored and looking to kill some time? Try your hand at this contest! No obligation.

    (yes, i know this sounds like an advertisement...)

    What a coincidence. I have spent the past week or so working on compression for a game that I'm working on. My general purpose compressor did beat out winzip in many areas. Is there any sort of prize? Who is judging?

    I updated the due date to October 10.

    Forgot to mention:
    If you want to be a judge or a contestant, both can sign up, but there are slots for only so many. I'm a judge, so there's 3 slots left.

    Check at the thread for an accurate count of slots left.

    Update: we have 5 contestants, and 4 judges, which means there are 5 more slots for contestants left, and no more slots for judges.
