So I just finished a TopCoder match. My rating went down; the drop was, however, exactly seven points, so I think I can work my way back up eventually.

Definition of "painful timing:"

System> assembler is opening Windrider's 500-point problem.
System> The Challenge Phase is now ending for Single Round Match 199.
System> assembler has successfully challenged Windrider for 321.93 points.


It was a timeout case, started with six seconds to go- so mine fell after I thought I was safe. Do you have any idea how much that sucks?

It would have fallen to the same case in the systests anyway, but still: ARRGH.

(And yes, I pulled the 321.93 out of thin air; I think it was lower. It was in that vicinity, though.)

Props to you for only dropping a few points. "Personally I think we got screwed on that one". Name the movie win a prize.
