Hello Codeforces! Did you miss Limak?
I’d like you to invite for CodeChef February Lunchtime that will start at 19:35 IST / 17:05 MSK of 25-th February 2017 (check your time zone here) and will last 3 hours. The contest starts 5 minutes later than usually to allow you to catch a breath after the AtCoder Mujin Contest that ends at 17:00 MSK.
I am an author of problems and editorials, while niyaznigmatul is a tester. I want to thank PraveenDhinwa (who is a contest admin) and suraj_sharma for their technical help. Translators: CherryTree (Russian), huzecong (Mandarin) and VNOI team (Vietnamese). Language verification: arjunarul.
There is no registration required, anybody with a CodeChef handle can participate. Top school participants can win CodeChef laddus (details on the contest page).
You will be provided 4 problems with subtasks (IOI-style grading). Ties are broken by time of reaching your final score. The contest should be a bit easier than a Div1 Codeforces round. I honestly think that all problems are interesting and valuable — some for beginners and some for experiences competitors (IMO one particular problem is so new and beautiful). Remember about subtasks if you can't solve a problem for the full score, and read the editorial after the contest.
I wish you great fun and no frustrating bugs. Hope to see a lot of you in the leaderboard!
EDIT: The time of start corrected to "19:35 IST / 17:05 MSK".
EDIT2: Bump, the contest starts in 24 hours.
EDIT3: The contest is over. I hope you enjoyed problems. You can find editorials here.
