Battle Fish

A use of threaded HTTP requests to generate an optimal battle fish for an amusing online game. The game claimed that the best ‘Battle Fish’ was one that had an overall rating of 30, but after several attempts, no 30 was found. So, I whipped up a quick script that pounded the site. Unfortunately, even after tens of thousands of requests, the best that could be found was a 29 (and a few of them, at that). This script is for amusement purposes only, of course.
