more programming challenges

same as prog1 but with a random lenth code in a random place..e.g.
xxx xxxxx x xxx xx x CODEHERE xxx xxx xx xxxxxx
x xxxxxxxxxxx CODEHERE xxxx x xx xxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxx x
etc etc etc.

give 3-5 seconds to solve a random equation

a random encrypted string, you are given the first letter and lenth of the key(should be a standard dictionary word).
*use a few types of encryption and pick one at random each time for the challenge to make i harder or even have that as prog5*

hope you find this useful...

Re: more programming challenges

Nice ideas Xen but im not entirely sure how prog4 would work.

Unless the encryption was a custom encryption that is easy to decrypt (and isn't 1 way like MD5)

I think I might start making these soon though, after some final additions to the site. Anyone else like these ideas?

Re: more programming challenges

i thought up another challenge that would be half stego and half programming, i've not seen it done on any other site thus far, will get out my photoshop at some point and have a play.

cut a picture into squares then randomly put those squares back together(maybe even rotate some) then merge another picture over the top, then repeat the process a few more times....

the chellenger must find the right positions to get the password.
