RAD's blog

By RAD, 8 years ago, translation, In English,
Good evening! 

I am glad to invite you to participate in Codeforces Beta Round #52 (Div. 2). Today's round was prepared Michael Mirzayanov, Max Ivanov and Maria Belov. 

It's possible that "out of the competition"-participants will not be able to use the tab "hacks". Do not panic, on the next Div. 2 Round we will necessarily fix it. 

Good luck!
Artem Rakhov and Codeforces team

System testing already started but there are some bugs in UI.

I think in tests for problem A there is extra whitespace. Can you check the first pretest?

    No, everything is correct. The first pretest is the first sample test.

      Yes, and my program worked correctly for the first sample when I ran the custom test. It didn't pass the pretests though. Then I added handling extra whitespace and it passed.

      OK, I figured it out. Apparently test files have Windows line endings but the input in the custom test has Unix line endings.

    Test cases used for grading should be revealed after the contest.

Today there were some issues with database performance (after migration to another server). It causes all inserts and/or updates to be very slow. It will be investigated. So today we had slow judging and some other inconveniences. Sorry for that. I know that "ratings" were not updated correctly, it will be fixed soon (I mean handle colors).

Anyway round itself passed without critical issues. Also the problems were clear and interesting. Thank you, RAD. Our congratulations refer to Petrozavodsk, to a PertSU university student zurg, who won this round! See you in Petrozavodsk!

I guess the 9th test case of C hasn't shown completely.

Problem B of this contest has weak test case. Consider case: 8 1 7 3 7 4 5 6 2 8

My AC code outputs 2 7 though proper AC should print 0 0 because it can't be done with one inversion.
