Here is a screencast of me solving this round: youtube To watch comfortably (and see clear text), choose 1080p and watch full-screen on a 1920x1080 resolution or higher. Download link in 1680x1050: link

I wonder why did you call one of you functions tatiana, what does it mean in polish?

    Nothing. It's a female Russian name ;) As you can see in the screencast at that time, there was a user Tatyana_Petrashko who I was condering hacking because the code seemed suspect (it later turned out that it was indeed one of the only two failing submissions in my room). I wanted to rewrite her submission as function tatiana in my code and then compare my algorithm to hers on lots of random or large testcases. However, I gave up rewriting the code after I struggled to differentiate between a "1" and "l" in the Flash code-displayer (I think they're pixel-for-pixel exactly the same there).

      That's funny, I tried translate this word in different online translators. As far as I know this name means something like "founder" or has similar meaning of establishing or learning. Just was curious about it :) Did not notice whose code you were looking at the moment.

      Yeah, flash player displaying code with out highlighting on codeforces makes it difficult to read :)

Good Screencast! Which script you used to get answers of your program to input tests? Can you give the link? And name of the software for screencast, please? Thanks!

    It's open source. But, if you use it, I request (nothing more) that you pick an issue from the list and resolve it. Most are just easy fixes that I don't have time to do.

    Software for screencast is CamStudio Recorder (using CamStudio Lossless Codec, then transcoding to x264 using ffmpeg).
