    Got time on your hands?

    try out this:
    www.topcoder.com/pl/?&mod...e_overview

    the marking for your code is pretty stringent (or is it my slap-dash coding?)

    You must be joking.

    Spend a whole day on it and 1st prize is only $10,000.

    I couldn't take the rate cut.

          have you noticed that majority of rated programmers are from the USA, and this brings me to question - why are they working for fk all? Concept of the site is interesting but projects are offering waaaay too little even for me to bother, yet it appears that lots of USA folk are into it.

                knob-all, unless you go to an event in USA I think. But there are big IT employers hawking it (I think it's sponsored by Intel)

                    that site is good for certain category of people - its paid for work so it is legit to put it onto CV and those who live in low cost countries can actually survive on it while learning IT.
