It's art that's code
Now I'm thinking of awesome programs to hide in any gfx work I do...
This seems to be like a conveniently sized practice project, a little I/O with the real world with a simple computational task that's fun to write.
And when run on its own source-code it exposes a message; obfuscation and steganography being much the same thing.
And it uses every single BF symbol in the source significantly (no hopping over to a payload thats in a comment or something simple)...
I expect someone has already done it!
The trick, I figured, would be to make a simple basic-like language, and actually write the framework in that, and then make a compiler that translated it to brainfuck.
I wonder if that's what this guy did. :)
This `netfuck' code is well documented, though. I'm not even sure which questions I'd want to ask first about the author's relationship with programming.
Getting started with assembly can do strange things to a man. ;)
Also, who's the jerk that took "SirCmpwn" as a username :(
