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 #100330: The Rembinator

by Rembrand van Lakwijk
This OMGWTF calculator was implemented without using the ++, --, +, -, / and * operators, while and for loops, and if statements that do anything more than goto or return (well there are a few exceptions, but that's just because nested, indented if-blocks look so damn sexy).
Each of the 4 operations is implemented differently, each WTF-y in it's own way. All I can say is that it needs to be able to access www.google.com/search, and it uses calc.exe. The rest is in the readme and comments. Enjoy!
