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 #100349: ConsoleCalc V3

by Joe Bott
This calculator is a console application, with a Windows-ish GUI hacked on with some trickery. Most drawing code was some by hand instead of using Win32 API functions. A genetic algorithm was used to create the font.

When the program is first started, you'll be presented with a blank black console window. Left-click in the window to get the calculator rolling. Try clicking in other windows with "ConsoleCalc" in the name for more fun!
