## 5k$ for the fastest 64-bit code, deadline 10 February

Not a joke:
Win 5k$ for the fastest code

Quote
In a nutshell: We give you a bunch of ranked 2D points, then ask you to find the most important ones inside some randomly generated rectangles. Easy, right? Now make it fast, and you could get $5K!

They want a 64-bit DLL, so that's not my cup of tea. Deadline is 5pm MST on 10 February. Good luck to our champions :t

Not to discredit the contest, but sounds a lot like crowd sourcing to me.

Instead of paying someone to solve a problem, offer a prize so many people try to solve the same problem and you only pay one. :badgrin:
