I think I like Don Yang's entry best -- "A program that prints a program that prints a program that prints a program that prints the second program." Huh?! Those with smaller ambitions will be pleased to know (via
Virtex) that there will be a
new 5k Web contest contest
for 2001. "The rules? Simple. Just create a Web page or site that is no larger than 5K, including all html and graphics. Oh, and there's no server-side scripting allowed (client side scripting is OK, though). Interested? The contest officially kicks off March 1, but why wait until then?"
(Last year's iteration
drew some pretty wacky entries.)
