About The Contest

The first ever Olympiad of Misguided Geeks contest at Worse Than Failure (or OMGWTF for short) is a new kind of programming contest. Readers are invited to be creative with devising a calculator with the craziest code they can write. One lucky and potentially insane winner will get either a brand new MacBook Pro or comparable Sony VAIO laptop.

* Since the CPU doesn't exist we need an emulator for it, so the
emulator is provided in a lispy language (source in CPU.cpp)

* Since gcc unfortunately doesn't provide a frontend for "Todd's m
