    The last since it was your best (in the context in which we decided to take out the ATSP).

    Hi Alex,

    any news? Do you have a rough ETA for the announcement of the winner of this contest?

    Thanks,

    - Bernd

    Apologies for the utterly atrocious delay. Final results will be published this Wednesday at 23:59 GMT, so that you'll get to play with the prizes for Christmas. Thank you for not bursting into flames at our procrastination!

    Yeah, all right and things are rollin'! We have our independence day tomorrow, so I'm probably not around. :) Cheers!

    I guess the deadline got pushed to next Wednesday. :)

    I became to wonder if the Visual Studio license be the 2012 one from the beginning? I'm indeed enjoying some winter holidays and all (a bit later than Christmas, which is only a few days off from work) and thought about a bit of return to my mobile programming roots and do some Windows 8 handset programming.

    Results are out...finally! I do hope you gentlemen won't hate me (more than usual) for the delay. It is my opinion that you both did a swell job!

    To my knowledge, the VS 2012 license comes in the form of a VS 2010 + MSDN license that is upgradeable to VS 2012. Back when we drew everything up it was uncertain when we'd finish and if VS 2012 would be available by then, so this was the best option. Also, you guys should check your inboxes:smile:

    In the final tally you have applied the 10 percent weight for code quality twice (yielding a total of 91 percent), but seeing as they are judged to be equal there it doesn't really matter. Anyway, the correct numbers should be 89,143 and and 85,966.

    Edit: And big congrats to the winners. Well and chivalrously fought.

    I just read the results. It could not have been closer!

    Thanks again, Alex, Microsoft, and AMD for hosting this fabulous contest.
    Veikko, you have been a tough sparring partner. I am still licking my wounds.
    In the next few days I will study your implementation.

    Happy Holidays everybody!

    - Bernd

    Yeah!

    Likewise, my thanks and nods too.

    I think I got away with only a few bruices to my programmer ego. :)

    Feel free to ask if you find something. I haven't checked your code yet (might take some days, enormously busy at work and kids in stomach ache), but for what you wrote, your solution was quite more elaborate than mine. I went more with simple is beautiful, albeit I left notes how would I improve things other than tweaking the code. In that regard too, your victory was well earned. :)

    Now, I can concur on this account too!

    No problem. My thanks for Beyond3D, AMD and Microsoft too.

    Let's see now if I can arrange better time in the future to do stuff. :)

    I'll do that, sometime later today. Just want to give collective congratulations for the good us.
