And so it begins. . .

Macstorm gets the high score by far, but Bainick is the one to receive the prize. Staff held the top three positions, and Bainick, in fourth place, has the high score among readers in a narrow victory. Complete results are available on the contest page.

Today is a bit of a short column, as I didn't find a lot of news or recent releases. We have a hall of fame submission from Xanalith, who tells us how they found a difficult opponent's weakness, and that's pretty much it for this week. The column awaits!
