Almost everywhere on this site, we have always held infinite loops under poor regard. This is very unfair to infinite loops because they have their use too! Here, we compensate for the prejudice against them by awarding you points for creating one. However, there is a catch. You must do it as short as possible.

Input Specification

There are no inputs.

Output Specification

There are no outputs. If you output anything, you will crash.

Scoring

Your score will be \left(\frac 9 N\right)^5 \times 7, where N is the length of your program in bytes, if your program works. Otherwise, it will receive a score of zero.

    This was a good problem. Kept AC'ed with no points but then I got it! 10/10 would rage again

      Your score will be  (\frac9 N)^5×7 , where N is the length of your program in bytes, if your program works. Otherwise, it will receive a score of zero.

    I have rewritten the problem to use the new judge, fixing a couple of bugs on the way.

      Make an infinite loop with as little code as possible.
