lis05's blog

By lis05, history, 12 months ago, In English

Today, 01.06.2023, me, master lis05 with rating 2163, sets myself a challenge to reach grandmaster rank before the end of the summer, 01.09.2023. If I fail, then I'll do whatever is written in the most liked comment. I can't buy you a Bugatti or become the citizen of Botswana, so only realistic requests will be taken into account. Good luck to me.

UPD: Since I plan to do a lot of virtual contests, I decided to write down my performance in them. Performance in a contest is calculated as performance of the first participant whose place is worse than mine.

  1. 2152 — 28.05.2023
  2. 2141 — 29.05.2023
  3. 2042 — 31.05.2023
  4. 2351 — 01.06.2023
  5. 2277 — 02.06.2023
  6. 1958, 2063 — 03.06.2023 (bruh, what an unlucky day)
  7. 2064 — 05.06.2023 (okay, maybe I should stop solving EDU rounds)
  8. 2351 — 12.06.2023 (Yeah, I took a pause because of my exams. But I am free now! Yey!)

UPD

Sadly, I failed. I will keep my promise tho. Wait for an update.

If you fail, for every subsequent contest, start from the last problem and don't submit any problem unless you've solved all problems after it. And use Cin, Cout with #define Cin cout, #define Cout cin instead of usual cin and cout.

If you don't reach grandmaster rank by the end of summer, you must organize a "Code-a-Thon" where you challenge fellow programmers to a battle of coding puns. Each participant must come up with the most creative and hilarious programming-related puns they can think of. The event shall be called "The Pun-derful Programming Showdown," and the winner gets crowned as the "Master of Coding Comedy."

Dude, that is so annoying. I already hate people that make this kind of blogs. Not only you made the blog, but you didnt participate in a single contest. And you update the blog saying "Oh shout, I failed". What the hell. You should go to prision for wasting people time. I like celebratory blogs, I hate blogs of people promising things.

    There are no rules regarding what a person can and can't post. Also, I didn't force you to waste your precious time on reading my blog, it was all your decision.

    The reason why I didn't write a single rated contests is very simple.
