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.
Entry #100122: Imaginary Numbers
by Kyle Cunningham
This calculator was made with the intention of being a WTF calculator that one would see in the wild. It works, but it just barely works. It seems like it will pass most normal test cases, but there are mysterious crashes and bugs. Moreover, the maker of this calculator was a lazy bastard and didn't really know GTK that well so the interface is pretty painful to look at. Worst of all, the creator didn't take the time to properly secure this calculator, so it's prone to some interesting crashes. The calculator will give the right answers, but is the right question being asked?
