Rejudge of Chomp problem
Problem was rejudged because of some presentation errors in input file. This errors have been fixed.
I invite everyone to take part in Open Contest 2008! Competition starts on May, 3rd at 00-01 (SPOJ time) and ends on May, 20th at 00-01 (SPOJ time). Interesting problems, original scoring system and long carrying out time will make this competition very dynamical and interesting. The scoring system is arranged in such a way that the score received for a problem strongly depends on the best solution for this problem, in more detail about this system you can read in rules. Long duration of competition will give necessary time to think thoroughly above each of problems and to find the optimal solution.
Good luck to all participants of competition!
