Hmm, perhaps that could be the source for a new reality based program?

"Software Survivor"

12 programmers are locked in an office building.
Each week they're given a different programming assignment.
They'll have to compete to finish their tasks before an arbitrary deadline.
They'll learn how to scrounge food from the vending machines.
At the end of each show a group of managers will vote on which programmer to fire.

That's awful!

...but very, very funny. My, that's dark humour.

(They just changed the specs on me and the deadline keeps shifting.)

Good luck and best wishes. Hope you're not freaking'd all the time.
