I find out that
I was a donkie

He got anrgy, pity
For my stupidity
All for best
Simulation for good alone

It's definitely *not* exactly a programming challenge, but algorithm challenge.

A programming (only) challenge should only require the players to write codes to implement an algorithm.

This one requires both algorithm design & programming.

Sweet, something to keep my brain busy for the next couple of weeks.

That was unnecessary. Whether or not he's a nut, the challenge he's
promoting (and not clearly otherwise affiliated with) seems to be
reasonable.

Eh? Just about every interesting programming challenge is mostly about
algorithm selection. Try some Project Euler for example.

Everyone back then has abused the "programming" word to meant doing everything (algorithms (system analysis & design), data structures, coding, testing, documentation, auditing, ....) at cheap salaries+benefits and tight schedules!

Someone please dumb the Tron ROM from the MAME32 project and use it as baseline answer. :slight_smile:
