Local Contest - FCIS

El salamo 3alikom...

Here i'm, and after finishing the mid-term exams "partially"... still we (ACMers) have other 2 exams 'Assembly and Software Engineering', those were postponed cuz of the ACM National contest.
we'll finish them isA on coming Tuesday.

But I'm here to talk a little about the last two ACM contests, let's start with the Local one,
Event Time: 27th October 2005 (24th Ramadan) - 10:00am
Event Name: ACM-ASCIS Local Contest

the contest started, i've read a trivial problem, but i wasn't concentrating enough, i started coding...i faced problems in input :S...i've passed that problems, i've passed other problems cuz the problem statement itself didn't specify the problem precisely!.
Submit -> Wrong Answer! ...expected :D

Moussa started coding his problem (breadth first - Hareedy 'It has a linear solution ;)' )...i didn't expect that it'll be accepted easily, specially when we received 'Time Limit Exceed - TLE' for the first trial!
but Moussa knew how to handle that...it's using cut :D...we got the first YES in the contest,,, and we were the first team to solve any problem...so we got a big balloon (5 big ballons for the first 5 solved problems).

how my trivial problem got wrong answer!... alot of clarifications had been sent concerning that problem, it almost contain all the problem specification exactly...then i've modified alot in my code...submit, submit, submit -> YES... we have solved two problems, we are the 2nd rank now!

yup, Impossible Imps 'Haytham, Mustafa and Saber' solved 1 problem -> 2nd rank then other problem -> 1st rank ;)

i've started thinking in another problem, also trivial :D ... coding and getting C-String exceptions :S...keep coding!... Moussa solved his second problem but a little bit late, it's maximum sub-array...that was of no problem...but we'll talk finally about our mistakes.

i kept submitting my 2nd trivial problem, i got Runtime Error 'RTE' then 'WA'... and the contest finished...3 problems solved, kamal was solving a rectangles problem all that time, but with no acceptance :
the contest finished:
1: Impossible Imps
2: Amigos
3: The 2 stupids 'Wael, Hosni and Sameh'

all of us started talking a little about the contest, and then went to Cook-Door,,, having our breakfast and waiting the result!...it's the moments before announcing the results!

let you go now, have a cup of coffee, continue soon ;)
