Wow! What a finish. A lot of us thought that Nick was going to do it again. The cyclist even named one of his last entries Can't beat Nicholas Howe. We knew the end was near, because Magnus S. named one of his last entries Some say that he is soon running out of titles (by the way, you should read the complete list of Magnus's titles).

The minutes ticked by, and sure enough here comes Nick with pf3pushmixfull. It's a significant improvement, and he's got a few more right behind. But wait... hold the phone! Could it be? Yes, here comes Alfonso with a killer punch. BAM! lastttry01. Look out! Here comes another. BANG! lasttry02. And the final blow. KAPOW! lasttry03.

Alfonso has set a new standard in terms of dominating the end game. Not one, but two of his final entries improved on the previous leader by more than half a percent. Which is, as we say here in New England, wicked hard to do. So hats off and three cheers for Alfonso Nieto-Castañón, our latest champion. And, as always, thanks to everyone who played. The code that wins carries with it a little bit of all of you.

See you in six months!
