Re: The Santa Claus Golf Apocalypse
Message ID:
This game has proved more popular than I expected!
I am travelling for the next day or so and my family
are starting to ask what am I doing locked away in the
computer room. So, please keep sending me your entries,
but in the interests of torturing your opponents, feel
free to also post your golf score
(not source!) directly to fwp.

Please please remember the manual workarounds to bugs:
 1) Format your source on a single line.
 2) Do not write to stderr at all.
 3) Do not use any external program.

Actually, I don't feel qualified to verify all entries
on my own; at the end of the game a panel of experts
might like to verify that the top 10 entries are
indeed correct weight.

There has been a lot of activity! If I have left
anyone out, I apologize (in that case, please post
your golf score to fwp).

The magical 90 barrier has been broken by the
Flying Dutchman!!!
