Programmers Challenged, Gauntlet Thrown

The Challenge

Quote
I hereby challenge all of you. That’s right, I’m taking off my hypothetical still-wish-they-were-in-style white glove and slapping you in the face with it.

 :o ;)

It goes on with more details about the challenge and comes to
Quote
The rules:

   1. You need to write one program, every day. Duh. Any language. You can not duplicate functionality. This means a Hello World in Java is fine, but don’t go and make a Hello World in Python afterward.
   2. You need to post the code online. If it’s an embedded project, post a picture/video of it working. Everyday, I will take the lead on collecting these pictures and posting them the next day online.
   3. The deadline for submission of your code/pic/video is MIDNIGHT that day. The result is posted the next day on our website.

So, if you have a program that is just waiting to be released, head over to hackypedia and read the challenge, then pick up the glove and slap em with your awesomeness ;)

I think it's a good way for us donationcoders to draw more attention to our supergreat community  :Thmbsup:

I believe they'll accept our taking up the challenge a little late :)

We need to sacrifice a Codie effigy to the gods and summon Skrommel from the depths. He alone can conquer this challenge and return triumphant with the gauntlet of the vanquish enemy coders.

of the vanquish enemy coders.

there are no such things as enemy coders, only comrades.

good luck to the coders involved! for the original post that inspired these fellows, see http://fubarlabs.com...h-madness-challenge/

I did something kind of like that for 30 days spanning parts of April & May back in 2004. Inspired by the now-defunct bit-101 labs, I made a Flash "program" everyday. Though often I would take a previous day's project and add to it or modify it, it was actually pretty difficult even doing that to come up with something to program every day for 30 days.

Some of the things I made don't work anymore because they relied on server side scripts or other separate files that are no longer there, but if you'd like to take a look at what I did (probably pretty boring), you can see it at my Idler Project.
