I'd be interested, though I'm not sure I've much time for the coding. Definately up as a beta-tester though. Incidently, Gregg Irwin and I thought about doing a programming game type of thing a while back. It was to be called Cat & Mouse and you would've had to program cats and mice to out-live eachother - or something like that. Never got off the ground, but I did write a simple front-end for managing such a game. Be happy to let you look at it and/or use it if it'd simplify getting corewars started for you. I made it as generic as possible. -- Carl Read
