Last update on the memset challenge

We've received many good submissions to the memset challenge in the past 24 hours. We haven't tested, but it looks like someone has managed to shrunk it to fewer than 10 bytes, really cool!

Note that although we ask you to optimize for code size, in order to win your implementation must be correct first. It looks like some implementations don't return anything which is wrong as memset returns its first argument. Please send us updates if you want to correct your submission.

We're going to head out for the meeting at University of Science. After that we'll test the implementations and measure their size. We'll announce the winners early this evening.

Thanks all for participating!
