Inside Technique : Hiding HTML/SCRIPT... I think it IS possible!
Well at least for a little while. The Find the Source Code Challenge Take II had a good run, about 8 days total combined uptime before it was beaten by BachusII on Mar 21, 2004 at 6:52:32 AM (# 23) Scripts generated by most commercial protection software packages are broken in less than 10 minutes. It may have even gone on longer had I plugged a hole that was easily fixed. Good eye, BachusII!
Having said all that (so you don't have to) it is all irrelevant to this game. It is just a game, but it is no trivial puzzle to solve. Its traps were tailored specifically to fool an experienced developer. I believe the one thing that separates this challenge from commercial protection software is that it was designed to use deception rather than any new technological devices. Sure it uses all the common tricks, but only to set up and build upon the deception. Now that you all are (or will be) in on the deception it would be very difficult to pull off something similar. I'll still try though because this is so much fun :)
Here are the ins and outs of "Find the Source Code Challenge Take II".
