### Re: Sixth Contest of Newbies

Why guess 26 in the first case? The distance between 1 and 26 is the SAME as that between 36 and 26, so it is rejected after first two guesses.

About promoting: You can also post the link in TopCoder Forums. It'd be best if you do that 2/3 days before the start of the contest.

### Re: 11608 - No Problem

I didn't run your code, but I see a very suspicious line:

Code: Select all

``                cout << "No Problem. :(" << endl;``
Any mistake here?

### Re: 11568 - Pincer Attack!!

Hi, 1) Does bumping into mean robot and person cannot be in *adjacent" squares? Or just that they cannot be in same square? 2) Can robots see through each other? 3) What's wrong with NNWXNWWSW for my 3rd example? why a longer path is required? I simulate this and it looks perfectly fine to me. ...
