I competed in the Internet Problem Solving Contest this morning and placed 19th. I guess that's not bad, considering I was competing individually, but I had hoped for top 10. I should have been able to get A2, which would've done the job. Oh well -- next year. It's my first time trying this contest, and I was quite pleased at how interesting and fun most of the problems were. I definitely recomend checking them out, and previous years' too! Last year's problems may have been even better. I loved the hard one that nobody got; it was a really nice mix of game theory and graph theory, as opposed to really nasty geometry this year.
