Hello!
I've got an idea to create a contest.
This will be useful for both having more examples of FASM usage on the projects section, and also for fun.
To be more fair, we should vote for a more knowledgeable person to evaluate the works. A moderator would be the best.

The goal is to create the smallest and most useful internet-based program, using just FASM, the IDE of your preference and a resource editor.

The program can be anything for internet: a chat program, a download manager, a P2P, etc. But it MUST be SMALL and USEFUL.

Rules:
* The program MUST target Win32 and run on Windows XP.
* The program MUST be internet related.
* The program MUST be GUI based.
* The program MUST be SMALL ( < 5 kb ) and USEFUL (do what it's proposed in a elegant way) at the same time
* The program MUST be open source, so we can look inside the source to judge.
* The program MUST use just FASM as assembler, and be assembled with latest FASM version.
* The program MUST be original and not a copy of others.
* Source code organization, how useful is the program, how small and fast it is, all this should be evaluated.

Target dates to be decided. And also post your ideas, and if you're interessed.

No, actually I thought about this contest to learn from people's code.
I'm thinking about creating a simple file transfer program, but I'm still thinking about how this could be done.

I like the compo idea, but i have a problem with it being tied to a OS and type of program, also originality, will be hard, as it will be 75% interfacing with sockets.
Which is like making a original "hello world!".

Much better to say it must be able to interface with any network enabled OS.
Like a "simple file transfer program" should be able to do Wink .

I'd prefer something that has to do with DOS. Razz

I think the compo will be more useful if the OS target is an assembly one: menuetos, dexos, octaos

That way the community gains with every submission and is also more challenging.

I suggest a prize of $2000 in cash!
Think about it, we already have a registered base of 2500+ users!
And they can happily pay $1 each Smile

FASM programming contest: Anyone interested?
Good title.
Ozzy are you interested?

The reason why I am asking this is, that, you posted no reply/feedback on it.

I have an idea for you: to write in FASM small chat program for the next conference. Very Happy It should save logs in HTML format and be less buggy than Java chat applet. Smile

@0.1:
Sorry for not answering.
I'm very busy these days.

@Everyone:
So, yes we could write the program for any OS.
In fact, a networking program for alternative OSes like Dex4u, DOS, OctaOS and Menutet would be really great.
But we should then think about very good methods of work evaluation, because different OSes will have very different coding styles and helpful libraries available.

As for the prize, I don't know.
But contributing for FASM examples code base and also learning from people's code is good prize! Smile

@MHajduk: It's a good idea! Although I think a full chat program would be too much work while we already have IRC, for example.
These days I'm very buzy with uni. Sad
But I may try to code a tiny IRC client with the features you requested, since it would not require to code a server too.
