Didn't they also have a 64-byte contest a while back? Also, what about the maze generator? Ghost ANSI display thingy? Sniper (Ben Lunt) seemed to organize a lot of 'em with Adok's (sp?) help.

(I'll admit I haven't kept track either, and I've never entered nor probably ever will since my skills aren't good enough. My best "work" on shrinking was reducing BEFI.COM, which I basically rewrote in Rexx and Pascal for fun anyways.)
