It looks live they've just started up the 20th International Obfuscated C Code Contest. It runs from now until Jan 12, 2012. It is a competition to write some of the most convoluted C code possible. The site is http://www.ioccc.org
Some of the programs are really amazing for their size and complexity. One guy wrote a c compiler, tiny basic variants, editors and even an operating system.
I am one of the winners of the 19th IOCCC. My program used tempest emissions to play very simple songs on a shortwave radio. The obfuscation really isn't in the program but in what it does, so I felt very lucky to win.
