Code Golf Contest #1

Yes; that is after subtracting the VAT entry size.

I was actually using both the hints you gave. Looks like there's something else I could optimize... I won't discuss it too much until I submit it though.

EDIT: 54 bytes, still working...

Shouldn't unhappy be sad?

ASMists said they prefer "unhappy" because it saves space and JWinslow23 allowed "unhappy" as a valid answer for "sad".
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

For TI-BASIC, does it matter if Done is displayed in one case and not the other? If not, then I have a 47-byte program. If so, then it's 48.
It depends which OS I think, because on OS 2.53MP and higher, it's impossible to hide the "Done" message. Even if you end your program with Output(1,1," it will still show up regardless.

Now that I think about it: in every language?I 'm not sure about TIBASIC

3 days left! Submit your programs fast!

Princetonlion.tibd, either of SAD or UNHAPPY are allowed. Whatever is more golfed.

Also, I want clarification on who should choose problems for subsequent competitions. Should I choose, or should the winner choose?
Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?

Unfortunately I doubt such a solution would be smaller in python, since getting logarithms takes:

import math
OR
from math import *

for the first, log is math.log(), but for the second it is just log(). either way, it takes either 22 or 24 bytes for ONE log call.


Also, for python I can't think of a way to save with "UN" and "HAPPY" since that would require a variable.


I'm working on a new python version that might save a few bytes, and changes to "UNHAPPY" :P

Glad this mini contest was successful by the way :D (well from what I see so far from the many participants)

Having the winner choose would be more interesting in my opinion, since that leads to more of a variety, and provides a prize.

I'd say that the winner chooses who chooses :P
That means a prize for the winner as willrandship said, but that also means that if the winner has no idea but someone has, that person can provide an idea too.

Thanks, everyone, for participating in this contest! You guys are the best! :thumbsup:


Oh, and the winner shall decide the next challenge (unless he can't think of one and post it by the end of Monday, for which case I will submit a challenge. Remember, a week goes by too fast to delay!). Try to think of one tomorrow, everyone.

Sorry I didn't really read all, but are people compared by language or in a single batch (yeah I know this sounds stupid) ?
