Well, uh thanks...

I really believe that obfuscation covers a lot of different topics...

  • It's not only unreadable code or convoluted print statements
  • The most interesting ways to obfuscate are probably not in encrypting your code so that it's unreadable
  • Obfuscated algorithms are very interesting (see the many more than one way to do $A++, for example)
  • To me, "linguistic" constraints are so interesting and I can't even comment on them ;-)

But by any means, don't do this at hom^W^Win production code...
