I absolutely checked that, but no luck. This is something new to me, Thats why I am confused.

How can that be new to you if you already upload around 10 files? .

I am puzzled with your last statement :P

I think he means that having uploads disappear is new to him.

Thank you for quick reply. I ll try to include the fla file as well

And make sure you don’t include the php file. Whether the php is called or not it won’t be accepted if the php file is present in the preview package.

- not sure how Google Code Jam deals with execution times, ..

It isn’t primarily concerned with execution time .. but during the 2.5 hours in which you get to solve a problem in a round, when you think you have implemented an algorithm that works you start a “solution submission clock” by downloading the small data set. From the time of download you have four minutes to produce a correct output file. During that four-minute period you must run your algorithm on the data set, upload the output (which is instantly checked for correctness) and, if not correct you must debug, re-download (the data set changes with each submission of a candidate solution) re-run and resubmit, so effectively your program could take up to four minutes to run (assuming you got it right first time and didn’t need to debug and resubmit) For the large data set you have eight minutes.

... but with the Spotify Programmers Challenge, I wasn’t able to solve a problem because I couldn’t stay within the 1 second execution limit (using C++, which is supposed to be pretty fast). I guess my algorithm was just too crappy – it solved the example inputs instantly and correctly, but I guess it must’ve buggered up for the larger inputs ;)

That all I need: Another time sink! ... Google Code Jam just consumed about half the waking hours of my life (and most of the ones that should have been spent sleeping were spent awake) since a colleague told me about it last week. Too late to enter but I got drawn into solving the practice problems (past contest rounds) – I would have been better off entering because then I’d have been working to a time limit. Instead, some of the more challenging problems activated my OCD gene :) :

For anyone who likes a extra challenge try solving “All Your Base” in Actionscript. :) The algorithm required is relatively easy to come up with and Actionscript’s parseInt() makes implementing it quite easy, at least for solving the three small sample cases, but handling the input files (especially the large input) is a whole other ball game because then you start working with numbers larger than AS can represent … but it can be done :)

Any coders entered in this years Google Code Jam

I wanted to give it a shot but missed the entry date :(

Solving some of the practice rounds is a lot of fun though

Simple implementation of the suggestions made above :


var aMovies:Array = new Array();

function loadXml():void
{
    for(var i:Number = 0;i<8;i++)
    {
        aMovies.push(addChild(new myMovie()))
    }
}

function another():void
{
    for(var i:Number = 0;i<8;i++)
    {
        //Do something with stored movieclips. eg:
        aMovies[i].x = i*aMovies[i].width;
    }
}

I am the only one that hates games that involve luck? :D
I mean.. i don’t hate them .. but i don’t see the point of them. I can’t call someone good to something because he has luck :P

And yet if you check out the rankings have you noticed how time after time the same people seem to get most of the luck! :)
