I'm in the semifinals in Topcoder!
What this means is that I'm getting free airfare to Connecticut and competing there locally with 15 other people (yes, it's down to 16). And even if I totally screw up, I still get $3k.
Now that's *nice* ^^
One amusing note: I went down to the CS office in Oberlin to let them know, beacuse of publicity and stuff. An hour later I got an email from him - I'd forgotten to mention I wasn't a CS major ^^;;
