Next idea

Tonight at the Sleepy Hollow School auction a friend, Dan Miller, mentioned a programming project he did when he was in high school.

Think a big stop button.  The program starts counting up, from 0 to 10 seconds.  Sometime in between, randomly, it will stop the timer.  You’re task is to hit the stop button as close to that random moment as possible.  You get as many points as seconds have gone by before hitting stop; you get zero points if the program stops the timer and you haven’t hit stop yet.

He named this program “Nerve”.  Sounds like an easy iPhone app.
