YuukaKazami's blog

In the Round 2 of the hacker cup, I scored 0 points.

The default folder for my web browser is the one for Round 1(didn't change since last time), and I mistakenly submitted all the output and code for R1 and get 0 score at the end. Maybe because its 5am in China and I am at half-sleep mode.

It is very funny, but I am very sad now >_>...

UPD. I submitted them at gym, A is wrong,BC are right, D got TLE so I tested it by copying another one's accepted code, the output is right. So if I didn't make such silly mistake I would get 90 points. Whatever, I need to watch some anime, play some games to comfort myself T_T.

That's hard luck... but considering your programming skills, I don't doubt you'll qualify for many on-sites in the years to come.

My case is worse... in Round 1 of Hacker Cup, I didn't qualify before I rushed to submit problem 4 by thinking "Oh, right... 3 colors must be enough" without thinking a counter-example. I still had over 20 hours left... and I don't think I'll ever qualify for an onsite. It's my wildest dream, but I think it'll remain forever as such.

    I spent those 20 hour finding a counter example, but I was not successful, those trees are too big for paper and pen later... I still didn't find the algorithm of constructing minimal tree that needs 4 colors, I had no time to do that properly.

    Form editorial:

    We leave the problem of constructing a minimal tree that requires k colors as an exercise for the reader.

    I sympathize with all of you with sad stories ;-)

Try to create the filename as a word of the problem name (e.g. if the problem name is "Auto Complete", you can create auto.cpp) instead of generic A.cpp, B.cpp, etc. This will reduce the probability of submitting the wrong file :)

    I just have one folder (though it contains 5 source files like program1 ... program5). No need for different folders.

Can you list some anime you are going to watch and some games you are going to play?

    Digimons is the best anime. Definitely very important part of my childhood :P.

    And Captain Claw is the best computer game, I guess that this fact doesn't need mentioning :). Though Raymans and Worms are also very good :D.

    I know some experienced competitive programmer in China play osu!:

    YuukaKazami = http://osu.ppy.sh/u/1624950

    s-quark = http://osu.ppy.sh/u/1590079

    watashi = http://osu.ppy.sh/u/921559

    And me: cgy4ever = http://osu.ppy.sh/u/334296

    And I guess more than a half of experienced competitive programmer in China love anime.

    Note that most of us have one year (last year in high school) totally free to do anything what we want -- then playing games and watching anime is one good choice.

      I'm an osu! player too ^_^ Though I'm not experienced in osu!, nor in coding :(

      Anyway here's my account http://osu.ppy.sh/u/3285474

      In my opinion Osu! is a game that improves your reflections, fast thinking and (mouse/pad) accuracy. Most of them are quite useful in competitive programming ey? :3 (Imagine yourself hitting the wrong folder when the contest clock hits 0 just because your newly-bought mouse is too sensitive)

      And I think, for anyone, anime and games are sure the best things to spend on when school's out and you are in total freedom 0w0

      I'm also an osu! player :D http://osu.ppy.sh/u/19364

      Though it was definitely a while ago, when I was an active player. You can see that I registered 7 years ago :D and stopped playing in beginning of 2010. And I have larger play count than all of you :D. Not that I was very good at it, I guess that Chinese guys can be far more better :D. I was very pleased to solve this problem :) /contest/235/problem/B

      Btw it is very nice to see that even among red coders there are some freaks playing the same games as me, here was first time I encountered this on Codeforces ffao about Pump It Up Do you know Pump It Up or Dance Dance Revolution in China?

    WTF dude?! Anime rocks! I also watch anime and I love it!

    And I also play video games, and I love that too! As a matter of fact, I just finished playing Castlevania: Rebirth in hard mode a few moments ago. And I'm proud of that!
