New reality TV “Coding on Ice” ™

In which programmers remove lines of code from well known pieces of software without it breaking.
The public at large get to vote (naturally).

As the contest hots up we see the insertion of new lines of code to provide whimsical behaviour (reminding myself of the time I changed a mainframer’s terminal mouse cursor to a penis whenever he moved it – Ok Bruce I’m sorry but that early Windows C programming course needed to be put to some use).

The latter stages of the show see those remaining attempt to crash Windows with the fewest number of changes.

Actually that last scenario best might be done at the beginning of the series, when we just watch Windows crash unaided.
Costumes will be compulsory (stick-on beards and sandals provided for the contestants).

Hosted by Bill Skates.
