It had been a while since I last checked in on the Hugi Size Coding Competition's, I noted a 2009 competition #28 - The "Hugi USB" Compo which was if you've not seen it/guessed already; a USB related competition:

"...This time your task is to retrieve the device descriptor from an attached USB device. Yep, you must detect the controller, find its I/O base, and control the USB controller, polling for a device connection, then display the attached device's descriptor..."

There were only 3 entries :( In size order: 438 bytes, 352 bytes (example entry), and 233 bytes. The example entry was NOT counted, so "officially" there were sadly only 2 entries with the winning 233 byte entry being coded by Tapani Utriainen (aka nadir/RAGE best known as one of the coders of the Gathering 97 DOS demo Robotnik).

It is also worth noting that there is also now a Hugi Size Coding Competition Discussion board. The older competition section of the forum (as linked to off the main page) contains the download links.
