Had you scared, didn't I? Nah, I don't think I'll try and best a 34K Hello World Program anytime soon. Besides, we would have to combine our efforts to beat the current leader, as MicroSoft holds the current record at 23MG, 1K to code for Hello World and 22.9MB to get it to run on a computer without a .Net framework installed in it. Now that is inefficiency raised to a truely professional level.
