Programming Contest - Create A Crossword

I hope you'll allow me a few moments to tell you about
a programming contest that may be of interest to you.
It's completely for fun, unsponsored, and pressure-free.

It's called the POTM, and we live at http://dinsights.com/POTM ...

The current contest, with a deadline at the end of February,
involves creating a crossword puzzle from a supplied wordlist.
There are a few twists involved (like reuse of words and the
availability of a "flipper" square) that make the problem
a bit different from other crossword creation puzzles.

We have about 750 forum members registered and an active
community ... I hope you'll give us a visit and sign up
for the next POTM. In addition to C/C++, several non-compiled
languages like Perl, Python, and PHP are available. We have
super-programmers and folks who are taking the opportunity to
learn a new language competing side-by-side. The POTM has a
rich history (1993-2000) and a library of past problems to
browse through.

Thanks for your time.
=Fred (a.k.a. The POTM-MASTER)

Want to test your PHP programming skills? I have just launched a PHP programming contest on my blog. The problem Many years ago there used to be a UK television quiz show (I am sure there has probably been many versions in other countries) that required the contestants to transform one word into another one letter at a time. The only rule was that each letter change must also result in a real word. Here is an example.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
