Photo finish! Starting at 8:29AM on the last day of the contest, vincent's "chkIntMap" dominated the field all day. At exactly 5PM, Paulo Uribe, aka "fer", submitted "dm1" and became our Overall Contest Winner. A fraction of a second later, his entry would have missed the deadline. Already a member of the Hall of Fame, you may remember him from such contests as Trucking, Molecule, Surveyor, and Binpack.
