TCO: Did Not Qualify

Damn. My score of 177.xx was slightly more than 4 points too low to qualify. Four points is- umm, someone help me out here- on a 200 point question, is that about a minute? 'Twas a close race: only 4 points under, but I was still down in 124th, I think. 100 or better to qualify.

Oh well. At least it's generally accepted that Problem Set 4 (my set) was the worst set of them all for actual programming skill- it was an "really really hard" with a "typing speed contest trivial", and I wasn't quite up to speed on typing.

Simplifies weekend plans, since I won't have a TopCoder round to compete in.

By the way, dplass, you came in 69th place and qualified in your problem set. Congrats!

Thanks, I saw that today. I wish they'd go back to a more traditional SRM format for quals... it was very nervewracking. I didn't get the 1k, (in fact still don't understand how to do it), and likely will be done after next round. But thanks for the good wishes.
