Mentioning topcoder in cover letter. | Reply
Joel Spolsky recommends to mention your topcoder participation in cover letter as indication of being an enthusiastic programmer.

Would anyone except for Joel himself ever notice it?
Can it deliver the message to the employer (if they did notice)?
What's the minimum rating/percentile that is worth mentioning?
