For those of you who need a little more competition in your summer:
registration for year 6 of the google code jam has started.   SJ

=== from the Google Codejam Team ===
Do you find yourself debugging in your sleep? Enjoy solving tough
problems and grappling with technical challenges? Then enter Google
Code Jam and compete for more than $80,000 in cash prizes!

Google Code Jam is an annual competition in which programmers  – both
students and professionals – are challenged to solve complex coding
problems in a limited amount of time – using any programming language
or tools you like.

Google Code Jam began in 2003 – on a platform powered by
TopCoder – in order to support competitive programming around
the world. This year, for the first time, it's produced on a
homemade platform developed by Google's own developers.

Here's how it works: First, you'll need to register from Tuesday, June
17 through Wednesday, July 16. Then, you'll compete against global
contestants in the online rounds during July and August. The Top 500
will advance to compete in one of the Google offices around the world
in September/October for regional competitions. Finally, the Top 100
will compete in the coding showdown on November 14, 2008, at Google
Headquarters in Mountain View, California.
