For those of you who are interested, the second ha.ckers.org challenge is underway. Click here to begin the challenge. Every thing you need is under that directory, and even after the contest is finished you are still able to participate, for those of you who don’t like the pressure of doing something in a certain timeframe. The forum is open for people who want to chat about this while they work. For everyone else, good luck!
Update: And the results are in! Pretty amazing times for the first several winners, and I’ll have to post on our “special winner” Stefan who managed to actually hack the test. Congrats to everyone who won! A spoiler is now live for anyone who is completely stumped.
