Into the Black

I had huge slowdowns on my computer today until I realized that Outlook was leaving copies of all my mail on the server again. This is starting to make me crazy(er)… it does not take long for my mail flow to fill my mailbox, and things sure do bog down when that starts to happen.

ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) International Collegiate Programming Contest.

the Java challenge sounds interesting:
Teams will be given specifications for an object.
These specifications will include a set of interfaces to be implemented and a goal for the object to achieve when in competition with other team's objects. Capabilities include observation of the progress of other team's objects and measures that can be taken to block that progress. The winning team object will be determined in a game environment while competing with others.

To compete, your team must succeed at building the object.
But to win, your team's strategy must be superior to that of your opponents.
