This is ma sad story of how i missed my first attempt at topcoder this morning….. I thought i got to start topcoding (chumma thought of starting it… must have started ages ago when i started SPOJ) and was prepared for The SRM 391….So i tried my very best to get up at 7 in the morning(after finfishing 3 linux installations in my hostel the previous night…. 🙂 ) I got up saw tht time was 7.00 already… didnt even brush.. and got on straight to “The I Lab” .. I think this is where my sad part starts… i chose a comp next to akhil and sat down to log in(hold on ilab is the internet lab of NITT and its “very fast!!!”… i gave the machine my user name and xxxxx as my password…. and then waited for two mins…. it said “loading your personal setings.”… i had sme patience (i am not tht patient either)so i waited for another two mins… and this thing kept on saying “loading my personal settings” …. (i thought tht the comp had taken a break!!! but why me:-( )…. so i kept waiting and waiting and tilll it loaded… and then went to topcoder site eagerly and pressed the register tab in the applet.. only to see tht the ****ing registration was over minutes ago…. Actually a bad start if u consider topcoding… so friends …. never trust a comp in i lab…. They have all these 1 gb ram stuff and things.. bt our NITT network server is so fast tht it brings down the comp speed to its own “high speed”…

P.S Please leave your condolenses below…
