for you techies... topcoder

Hey everybody! I know quite a few of you in my friend's list are computer programmers. (If you're not, you can stop reading right here.) Anyway, I was wondering if any of you were members of topcoder? It looks like an eternal programming contest where programmers get ratings based on their performance. This is also looked at by potential employers, so this "playing" could actually get you a job.

So yes, I joined it today on a suggestion by a former college professor and I must say that I'm quite impressed by the site. Oh yeah, the top guns of a competition there win $20,000... =) So... if you decide it's cool enough, sign up and don't forget to mention me (handle: amuzulo) as a referrer, so I can get cool bonuses too on their pyramid scheme. ;-)

Anyway, best of luck to you and have fun and learn something. =)
