What exactly does "hard computer science" entail? Presumably tossups on Half-Life don't count, and presumably stuff like flip-flops do, but what about a tossup on, like, C++? Or PSPACE? Or Turing machines? Or von Neumann architecture?
(I'm definitely interested, especially if this ever gets mirrored somewhere closer to me than Chicago.)

That said, there were all kinds of exciting clues and I had fun reading it.
Round five's tiebreaker has an erroneous clue that can be pretty easily corrected if one looks at the question before reading it.
