Not so long ago there appeared a comment about long queue of submissions at the time. What is even worse is the fact that polygon is also not available now. I write this blog because it is the third time, it happens when I participate in contest preparation using polygon.

As a possible solution to this problem, I'd like to point out the necessity of backups on some distant server, which availability doesn't depend on the availability of whole codeforces cluster.
