    Default competitions

    I was wondering if we could make a kind of competition ie:
    everyone who wants has to write a class which parses some data from an xml file online which contains the price of some products and the evolution the past 3 days.
    once in a week everyone's program gets runned and every bot "buys/sells" some products.
    then the price get adjusted and after a month the bot with the most money wins :)

    hi dinosep, why not. can you tell some more details how the evolution is realized? is she based on real products (prices), are there recognizable trends in the data or perhaps full accidentally or what else.
