IORCC - International Obfuscated Ruby Code Contest

Oh my god! I can't believe it, there really is an International Obfuscated Ruby Code Contest (IORCC).

A quote from the page:

The blog, the FAQ and the rules might be interesting. If you want to participate, you should start very soon, the submission deadline is 31-Mar-2005 23:59:59 UTC.

I'll probably try out Scuttle on this site soon, to find out how useful it is and how it works.
