Hello everyone!

I'm travelling abroad Russia. It happens that I see things which I haven't seen before (obviously), and it isn't necessary about culture (not so straightforward). For instance, recently I saw a payphone with internet access:


I don't know if it's a casual thing in some countries, but I haven't seen not only things like this in my life, but also any working payphone for last ~18 years.

So I wondered if it's possible to submit a problem on codeforces using it. Surprisingly, the payphone was quite convenient, one just needs to get used to it :)

So I challenge everyone to get AC on any problem from the cf problemset using any non-trivial device like smart tv idk or a fridge or whatever your imagination tells you to use. Good luck and have fun!

I remember once opening a terminal in some ticket machine. It had python so we implemented Fibonacci numbers or something like that. I don't remember if there was Internet access though.

Btw. is terminal enough to submit something with Codeforces API? Or do you need a browser?

I think It is possible to send submissions from the Burger King terminals after they are reloaded but the stuff obviously won't allow it

    You can setup a server and do HTTP request to it so it submits already written code to it. However, I'm not sure if it's cheating or not.
