#1. write some obfuscated code

Well, at least think about writing some obfuscated code.

Whether it gets written depends on how bored I am, how much free time I have, and (mostly) whether any good ideas come to mind.

By the way, I've found out the hard way that thinking about obfuscated code just before falling asleep is not a good way to get to sleep :-O

    Indeed, thinking about obfuscations or ANYTHING 'interesting' (whose definition depends on the one doing the thinking, naturally) is orthogonal to getting to bed on time.

    Conversely, it seems I don't tend to come up with anything interesting UNLESS I'm currently past "bedtime"... You should've seen how late I was burning the midnight oil for Breaking the indecipherable cipher, courtesy Charles Babbage.. Well, I guess it shows how late in the node :)
