see http://icfpcontest.org/ !!!

Too bad I'll be in an airport when  the subject will be published, then in an
airplane for about half a day (ie. about 9 hrs at least !), and then lost in
some foreign city !

Wish much success to the (maybe) D-team(s) !!

It basically boils down to a VM implementation of sorts:

I just registered myself.  Hopefully I can place in the contest!  I have to
decipher these instructions first though, lol.  They seem to use different terms
interchangably for the same thing.  Makes it hard to follow =/  English is my
primary language too! *argh*

I registered too, but mostly just to get the encryption key. I've got the VM working, if a little slowly - but now I'm stuck, as I get to a fairly useless prompt. Perhaps I'm missing something about the purpose of the contest, the means by which I am to obtain an _answer_ of sorts..

I have all the operations implemented, but the codex seems to contain invalid instructions to begin with and then ti tries to load an unallocated array and dies. I'm clearly not understanding something about how the UM is supposed to work. Regardless of the byte ordering it doesn't work. Want to join the same team? :) -S.

Damn! I forgot how much fun programming can be... It's been a while since I 
did something (useless?) like this : )

And D's perfect for it!
