RARS! Sounds Like "GARS!"

There is nothing wrong with belt AND suspenders when it comes to security. Your position assumes that the belt is near perfect, and that you've got nothing worth looking at if your pants fall down anyway.

It's so cool! Robot auto racing simulations! Rocking the HOUSE, baybee!

You gots to check out RARS if you dig programming crazy AI PROGRAMS and making them FIGHT like MADDOG AMOEBAS of CODE! OK, well, actually, they don't fight at all, but they RACE against each other! Around little virtual TRACKS, like Mario Andretti 3.0! It's real cool!

The deal is this: you download this simulation package, and some sample code for other robot drivers. Then you write YOUR OWN robot driver, in C++, following a particular interface. And then you can test your robot driver against the sample drivers, and THEN when you're happy with it you submit it to the RACING LEAGUE, and they race your little driver around these big ol' tracks! It's CRAZY!

It's like a combination of Linux driving your car and GnuRobots. I think it would be cooler if you could write the code in Guile or GForth or something, but writing it in C++ is OK, too. Whatever.

Anyways, I'm working on a pair of programs -- one of which is like an ATTACK CAR, and the other one kinda stays out of the way and waits till all the other cars have been attacked, then moves in for the kill. OK, it's a bad idea, but I can't wait to try it out. RARS! It RHYMES with GARS! How could that not be cool!?

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
