baha, there have been plans to run a Progsoc programming contest every year since I joined, which I will simply mention was last millennium. One time we got a few people doing Robot Wars. Recently some people were chipping away at Project Euler. But I think the basic problem is that anyone who actually can program is doing it for pay. The supply of undergrad programming talent has been limited for as long as I can remember, and dwindling steadily since dot com. And get off my lawn.
