    So do I, so do I.  In fact, as nostalgia settles in, I've found 
myself toying more and more these days with a type of competition that 
would both encompass the Hermetic arts of golfing and allow for vicious 
interaction between players. What I came up with is a Perl variation on 
the old venerable Corewar game that, I think, might be great fun. For 
some demented definition of fun, it goes without saying.

    In all cases, I have attached to this post a draft of the rules of 
the game. I  hope to have the game engine (plus a web / email interface) 
ready by mid-April. So if anyone's curiosity is piqued by the thing, I 
might try to organize a public tournament then...

PS: Wonderful article, /-\ ! Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
