What''s the prize for wasting my time writing this?

Just kidding about wasting my time.... or am I? Yeah, I am. Or am I?


Well, err, it''s a really big, ummm, nothing. Basically this is a way of stimulating positive community interaction. We all work in a friendly/competitive manner on a similar short term project, sharing ideas, and learning new things we would have likely not thought of otherwise. That and the winner gets to say (s)he 0wnz j00 a11 \/\/ith teh 1337 ><4x0r skillz (s)he has until the next mini-contest.

Question about applicable lib''s:
While thinking about this idea, the thought of controlling input came to mind. Using DX7 DInput seemed the easiest to me, but puts limitations on the app as far as compatability with Win95. Would this be an issue or should I rethink my idea using Win32 function calling?

Always remember, you''''re unique. Just like everyone else.

michalson: she?!? are there any women at all in these forums.. I once tried to explain hello world to my girlfriend.. she was asking what I was doing (and no I wasn''t coding hello world, just used the example to demonstrate to her what programming is). The only girl or woman I know of in game development is Diana Gruber.. and I don''t know if she has ever done anything else than apogee style sidescrollers..

Looks pretty female to me. (There are many more but I either don''t have their picture or the copies I have are not public knowledge [I don''t want to intrude on their anonymity])

As you seem to have some influence on Dave, you could perhaps convince him to hack in a personal post icon and/or a little nice colored text beside his (or her, if fel is joining ) handle for the winner.

I will probably not attempt this; my creativity has left me

Hopefully yes (depending on how much time I get), though as stated in the rules my entry wouldn''t qualify for anything past the initial scoring (even if it got a perfect score from the judges it would still be at the bottom with a big red DISQUALIFIED ).
Don''t you ever get tired of having that besides your name?

Considering that it''s my contest, I could change it to something like DISQUALIFIED FOR BEING TOO GOOD )
