Deadline change

I'm very happy with how well the Self-Documenting Code Contest has been recieved. Lots of people have written to comment on how interesting the challenge was, and we've had 34 programs submitted so far, more than double my original wild guess.

I only have one problem: that 1st of September deadline. I basically picked it arbitrarily, as a nice round number, but now it's really looking a very long way away. The number of submissions have dropped to a trickle now; it seems unlikely that anyone is really going to need that much time to finish. And most important: I want to get onto scoring them! I'm bored!

Sure, I could probably get more coming in if I submitted the contest to more websites, but I don't really see a need to. 34 is plenty. So I've decided to cut things short: you now have until Monday the 18th of August to submit your programs.

If you're still planning to submit an entry: what are you waiting for?

Good to hear the deadline is sooner now!

However, would it be possible for you to reply to each submission to confirm they've been received?

I'm always a bit nervous about hotmail bouncing / dropping emails ...
