I attached my compiled - semi finished ISP program in the zip. It has lots of bugs as I wasn't really fool proffing it while coding as I was behind the skedual.

So here's the deal. You find bugs, I award you with bits... the more comple the bug (and the more of them you find), the more bits you get.

Top bug finders will also recieve a bug catcher award that will be added to their items.

Things that can be considered bugs:
Program crashes - explain what you did to cause it to crash and if you can recreate the bug

Program outputs inaccurate information - where?

You run into a dead end - a window opens up, but you cant get back to the start one.

Anything else that is wrong with program...


In case anyone is wondering, this program is used to interact with "house database" where all students are assigned to a group called "house" and are given points for school events.

An example of the known bug:
If I add enough events and then go to edit student screen, its possible that some will get cut off.

Program removed... Contest Over... Thx for your help guys

Results:
Catalyst +35Bits
Darkness +15Bits
Octopi +10Bits

Catalyst Also scores a nice trophy that is now added to his item's list. Award has no bit value if you try to sell it... so dont do it Wink

Same with 'Manage events' Clear the text field and click one of the >> or << buttons. Pop goes the program. I guess it's like that for all of the text fields.
