nitor's blog

By nitor, history, 5 weeks ago, In English

Hello everyone!

I am excited to show a project I've been working on these days — It's called "Tourist Facts".

You can access the website at touristfacts.dikson.xyz.

This is a compilation of facts (some haters would call them "absurd hyperbolic claims") about tourist, inspired in things like Chuck Norris facts.

Suggesting new facts is really simple! — just login to your GitHub account, submit an issue (by clicking here), type the facts you want to add (one per line) and hit "submit new issue". — I'll review the facts, and if they are funny, original and respectful, I'll tag the issue with a "accepted" label, all lines will be automatically added to the database and each fact will have a link to your GitHub profile as credit.

This project is open source <3 — For more info, check it's GitHub repository!

If tourist loses red rating then Codeforces will literally go down.

Tourist doesn't even need a keyboard to write code. The code writes itself, under the force of tourist's mind.

Hi everyone!

I just woke up and I have accepted some of the facts you guys suggested.

Huge thanks to everyone involved. I've seen a lot of hilarious facts there!

One thing to note: if you have a fact suggestion that you want to appear in the page, submit it using the link on the blog! If you only state a fact on the comments of the blog and you don't create an issue it won't appear on the page, and if someone submits that on your place, you won't receive credit for it.

I've tried to make the process of submitting facts as easy as I could so everyone could take part if they want :)

Happy contributing!

Tourist can iterate over all permutations of size $$$N$$$ in $$$\displaystyle \mathcal{O}(\frac{1}{N!^{N!^{N! ^{\dots \infty}}}})$$$ time.

    I know this isn't much related to the blog but

    Seriously, what's the real complexity of finding the next permutation?

    Is it O(n) like we just need to find a decreasing element ie Ai<Aj and after that Ai should be replaced with the immediate larger element from the last till Aj.

    So one traversal till Jth index and another separate traversal to find larger element .

    So isn't it O(n) for one permutation? And there are n! permutations .

    Hence O(n!*n) ?

    Sorry if this is absurd.

      It's $$$O(1)$$$ amortized if the elements are distinct (you ckeck $$$2$$$ indices on average for each call)

  • When Tourist enters a people-queue, it becomes a people-stack.
  • Once Tourist solved a range query problem under a tree using a unique idea. The tree has since been named as Segment tree.
  • When Tourist attends an interview, he interviews the interviewer.

Thank you for giving an opportunity for some comic relief Here are mine: 1. Recruiters from FAANG companies had to register and enter into a bidding war over tourist &.reportedly they all failed since FSB outbid them to keep the national treasure in Russia. 2. Tourist can look at a test case and come up with the problem. 3. Tourist is actually a super secret Humanlike Robotic project started during erstwhile USSR & continued by Russia for world domination in CP.
