More Info

Christoph programmed a new version of minesweeper, ViennaSweeper, for the tournament. This allowed him to network the computers to display results on a screen during the competition. ViennaSweeper can also be turned on or off by the administrator, and this controlled when participants could play.

Damien Moore has made a very detailed report on the tournament. which includes all results from each session.
