    I've only glanced at the files, and I'm far too amateur to understand them. That said, it seems at first glance that a bit too many of the entries relied in part on turning code into ascii art. There was an entry a few years ago that calculated pi by the shape of the source file code, that was neat.. but if the whitespace is there just to look cool and break up lines, then that part of the obfuscation is 2nd rate obfuscation, in my not so well deserved opinion. Still, very very good to see the IOCCC make quick work and bring us the goods.
