        It's recently been in their style to have 228 attempts at a task and get it accepted at 4:59:40. :>

      They learnt it from North Korean teams.

      On a serious note, it's quite simple. One guy works on one problem, but has some bug which caused code to not work on samples, so he lets second guy code. Second guy finishes after some time, but when he does so, first guy discovers a bug and immediately after second one submits his problem, first one corrects bug, it works on samples, so new submit.

    Dear r_pi, if I were Petr, I would really not like this kind of appreciation from users side. Your comments are not pleasing — sooner annoying. Legends don't need praises written in their honor, they are legends without them.

20 minutes to go. Looks like MIT leading by 2 minutes.

UPD: 18 minutes to go and MSU has 10th problem. If MIT solves J (looks doable, 20 AC so far) they will be first.

Current standings with my observations from stream. Correct me if I'm wrong

PS: the only one error was: Wroclaw had AC in B instead of K. And congrats Warsaw on gold!

what's the point in the freeze if it can't even hide the results?

Remove the freeze, it is pointless and very annoying "feature"

Disappointed with India's performance. :( However, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay made it to top 50 :) Expected better performance from CMI and IIT Kanpur with reds such as rajat1603 and yashChandnani....
