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.
