I thought, that was disabled, so that email advertisers can't misuse it.
It might be a good idea to take your message out of the archive again.

Also, since the new sig-file is added to every message on this list,
it would be nice, if you'd reduce it to the old size again.

I don't know, what size the first prize is, but maybe it would be possible
to offer a free colour photocopy of it to everyone, who writes a game for 
the contest. That way people wouldn'd spend months writing a game and get 
nothing in the end. That might attract more programmers.
