Today, at 19:30 MSK Codeforces Round #140 will take place. The competition will be held in both divisions.
I'am the author of today's competition. My name is Ilya Malinovsky, I'm student of Saint-Petersburg State University. This is my first Codeforces round.
I want to express my gratitude to Gerald Agapov (Gerald) for his help during the work on the round, Maria Belova (Delinur) for statements' translation from Russian into English, Mikhail Mirzayanov (MikeMirzayanov) for the possibility to prerare contests (and, of course, to compete in them) here, on Codeforces.
As usual, in most of the problems participants will help different characters to cope with their troubles and misfortunes. You will have only two hours to help epical hero, an alien, noble knight and other characters. Also, insidious stone heaps will resist you in one of the problems...
I hope, most of participants will enjoy the tasks.
P.S. Information about score distribution will appear not long before the round starts.
upd. Score distribution is stadart (500-1000-1500-2000-2500) in both divisions.
