WE HAVE A WINNER ... driveL from William Burley and Arthur Goldstein wins
this month's POTM with the shortest (and one of the quickest) entries.  The
table below shows the code length (in characters) and the time (in hundredths
of seconds) for all the entries.   If you sent an entry, please take a few
moments to fill out the form I sent earlier ... sharing your approach and
techniques is a big part of the POTM.  Congratulations also to Andre'
Wilhelmus who continues his reign as Tournament Of Champions winner.

(Since it really didn't matter for the top spot, I didn't use the "earliest"
  entry rule to resolve other positions.  So Giorgio, Alex, and Alexey
  can all be considered the official "runners-up")
