Well, then at least I don't have to vote on it... ;-)

Strange, you actually made your program several times longer than the original (the part that's eval'ed). Not that size does really matter, but I was kinda puzzled by all those 44...

    You were puzzled? Maybe it's not as bad as I thought. :)

    To be honest I had much grander plans for this one but, depending on how you look at it, I ran out of either talent or time. Maybe I should have postponed it until next year.

      Well, even though I don't like "obfuscation" schemes that include calls to crypt, unpack or chr, I have to admit I don't know the ASCII table by heart. :-)

      So, I noticed all those 44s, decided I could at least change the eval for a print, and see what it actually did (mind you, I didn't guess... but the way to do it is still, er, poor).

      If the main point in an obfuscation is based on s///, crypt, or chr to make it hard to understand, you can be sure I won't like it. Try to do the same thing in a completely unnatural and complicated way, and there you will have me try to understand what it does, parsing it by hand, and so on...
