SecondThread's blog

By SecondThread, history, 2 weeks ago, In English

Good morning! ICPC World Finals just concluded in Moscow. I was lucky enough to be participate representing the University of Central Florida, who finished in a respectable 17th place.

While there, friends, acquaintances, and CF Legends signed my Codeforces sweatshirt in their handle with their current color. The most common request of the people I asked was to show off what it ended up looking like on a blog post of Codeforces, so here that is!

Famous Signings

Signers:

Thanks to everyone for signing it! I hope you all had a great time at World Finals, and I'll see you on the scoreboard on the next Codeforces Rounds! It was great to finally meet so many people who I've only seen virtually before in person. If you have any fun pictures from WF that you're itching to share, the comments below are always open.

    He asked, and I said "sure". I actually think that this is a great idea.

      Pretty rude. I'd rather have no great achievements than fake and pretend to be better than I actually am.

        Seriously, what's your problem? You're attacking me for random reasons thinking you're funny. I told David onsite that I've been red in the past so I'm signing up in red and he didn't seem to object. When you're rude to me it's 'jokes' but when I do the same thing it suddenly becomes rude.

        What fake achievements do I claim though by signing up on someone else's shirt?

SecondThread did you explicitly asked kpw29 to sign with the current color !? Kacper was red before so he might think you're asking for the max rating color!?

Oops, didn’t know there was a difference! All the more motivation for miagkov and I to grind the rating ladder!

    For some reason, I doubt the second statement... Was carried by his teammates, doesn't recognise what is a good problem and what is not, is not funny... Doesn't sound like a guy who can be red.

      So now we can conclude that a cyan is worth thousands, and Um_nik is worth at least millions. Interesting, I'm hoping for a complete conversion table soon.

        Hold up, if we're not careful here, Um_nik might end up being worth no more than a cotton sweatshirt...

          Well, the shirt was valued at exactly 1000 cyans while Um_nik has only stated that he's worth more than 1000 cyans. How much more has never been clarified, but it is possible that he's worth far more than 1000 cyans.

I disagree that tourist is the best competitive programmer of all time. I think that denis kirienko and elena andreeva are better
