Don't forget that if it's 12:01am EDT (GMT-4) next Sunday, September 5th, 2010, you will have missed Cemetech Contest #7's deadline! Contest 7, a Doors CS-themed contest, challenges BASIC, ASM, and Axe programmers to create a program or game that takes advantage of the Doors CS features for that language, including headers and BASIC libraries for BASIC coders, and ASM features like the GUI system and AP system for ASM programmers. Entries will be graded by myself and Rivereye on the basis of originality, speed, size and use of Doors CS libraries. A first-place winner will be chosen from the ASM and the BASIC category, and an overall grand prize winner will be chosen from between those two winners.

The grand prize winner gets to choose between a unique Chameleon'd TI-73 converted into a TI-83+, the only TI-83+ in existence that can executed in RAM Bank 3 without crashing, donated courtesy of Brandon Wilson, and a TI-83+ Silver Edition, donated courtesy of Shaun "Merthsoft" McFall. The second- and third-place winners in each category will receive a USB power injector crafted by yours truly, which not only lets you plug standard USB devices like mice, keyboards, Bluetooth dongles, WiFi dongles, and more into your calculator, but injects more power than is provided by the calculator via a complex circuit and a 9V battery so high-current devices can be used.

So wrap up your entries, remember to add a readme and compress your files and readme in a zip (as well as mention which DCS versions you have tested under), and submit your entries before the deadline! Good luck to all the entrants, and feel free to post in this topic if you have any last-minute questions or points of clarification.
