The September 5th deadline for submissions to Cemetech Contest #7: Doors CS programs is rapidly approaching! There are a mere five and a half weeks until entries must be completed, so on behalf of Rivereye and myself, the contest judges, I hope that your entries are coming along smoothly! As a reminder, any Doors CS-based program is acceptable, including those that use the Doors CS headers, those that use the new DCSB Libs for BASIC programs, and those that use all of the Doors CS features for z80 assembly programmers including the GUI system, the Associated Program system, Appended Library Extensions (ALEs), and Shell Expansions (SEs). Pure BASIC, hybrid BASIC, Axe, and pure Assembly entries are all acceptable; the former two types will be judged together, as will the latter two. Points will be given for originality, use of DCS features, size and speed, and functionality. Programs may be previously announced by not released.
The fun part: prizes! This contest surpasses all other past Cemetech projects in that the top winners in the BASIC/Hybrid and Axe/ASM categories will each receive a shiny graphing calculator! The overall winner will be able to take his pick of a Chameleon'ed TI-73 converted into a super-TI-83+ (donated courtesy of Brandon "BrandonW" Wilson and spiffed up by yours truly) and a TI-83+SE (donated courtesy of Shaun "Merthsoft" McFall). The second and third place winners will receive special USB mini to USB female adapter cables with 9V power injection, suitable for using USB libraries to connect optical mice, bluetooth adapters, wifi adapters, and other power-hungry peripherals to your calculator.
