brad, this is an excerpt from a commented portion of Josh's code...

"A compressed and messy version of this code is my entry to the 5K contest

Well, there ya go. :)

Yeah, Iris is my thing. Weird that Stewart didn't put people's names on things. Maybe there's some reason for that.

I originally did it for my "farewell" thing - thought it would be nice to go out with somewhat of a bang, but then I figured I could soup it up a bit for 5k. It came out pretty well, I think.

My brilliant girlfriend says maybe there's no names so the judges won't be biased. Oh well, I guess I've gone and blown that. I'll never win, now that they know who made it. =p

Well I think its beautiful and very innovative (even if it is its second incarnation). You won in my book.

This one and the frog one are my favorites. Excellent job Josh :] .

Josh, this was fabulous - this is the sort of thing that inspires me to keep working on my (very minimal) skills. Good luck!

Oh, there will be names and addresses (where permission is given) and kudos and URLs and commentaries and probably more than one job offer once all the judging is done. Until then, the entries are anonymous. (Or close enough.)

The frog's pretty cool. The calendar was another good one, imo.

Doesn't support Opera, so I'm afraid I have to ask: what good is it really?

And opera doesn't support the Mac, so I'm afraid I have to ask . . .

LOL. damn he's good.

Holy crap, I'm so blown away by all this. I'm so glad I didn't enter. =)

Nice work, Josh!

I got a real kick out of the Space Invaders submission. My 5K ideas would have been embarrassingly bad compared to some of the entries. (Then again, how big was Space Invaders in file-size in the first place?)
