Hello,

I’m Kai and I live in Honolulu(Hawaii). Usually each contest in Hawaii starts at 4:35 am to 6:35 am. I think we can all agree that taking part of a contest is very hard because I even have school. In the end, I decided to move to Berlin(Germany) just to participate to more contests. Do you think this is a great idea?

I recommend going to romania, CodeForces rounds are right after school ends.HappyNewYearGoodYearHere is a seg tree: #include #define int long long using namespace std; int aint[800005]; void update(int node, int st, int dr, int i, int val){ if(st == dr){ aint[node] = val; return; } int mid = (st+dr)/2; if(i <= mid) update(2*node+1, st, mid, i, val); else update(2*node+2, mid+1, dr, i, val); aint[node] = aint[2*node+1] + aint[2*node+2]; } int query(int node, int st, int dr, int l, int r){ if(st == l && dr == r){ return aint[node]; } int mid = (st+dr)/2, sum=0; if(l <= mid) sum += query(2*node+1, st, mid, l, min(r, mid)); if(r > mid) sum += query(2*node+2, mid+1, dr, max(l, mid+1), r); return sum; } int32_t main(){ int n, q; cin>>n>>q; for(int i=0; i>a; update(0, 0, n-1, i, a); } for(int i=0; i>cer>>a>>b; if(cer == 1) update(0, 0, n-1, a-1, b); else cout<

 » 2 months ago, # |   0 Despite this almost obviously being a troll post, here goes.No. At the very least if you care about competing seriously, where rating is involved, at least get to a point where you're beyond the cheater wall (Maybe 1900+ would be good enough usually?), otherwise, you'll just be cross. If you don't care about ratings, just give virtuals for now, and give the occasional contest on weekends.Also, I read something about normal contest timings changing or whatnot pretty soon, so keep that in mind as well.

 » 7 weeks ago, # |   0 Lucky me never had that problem, contests start at 8:20 p.m for me.
