I hope that the problem statistics system recover soon.

P.S ) Problem statistics system's time is 2002? Is it right?

But In my record, It seems about 2001...

Let's have a simple calculation.

You can see the total submission to the judge at:
http://online-judge.uva.es/cgi-bin/Onli ... t:Quantity

Although the judge shows old data now, I assume up to today, there are 3 million submissions.
Assume each submission use 5kB space, then the total space requires
= 3,000,000 * 5 = 15,000,000 kB < 15 GB

Sure it is not difficult to store 15GB data
(5kB per submission should be quite enough, I mostly write code up to 2-3k)

when I'm writing this reply, total count of submissions is 1745905 and it's increasing. See real-time stats. And about 30% of all submissions are accepted. I know. It's bit more than 500000.

About regenerating statistics - they do not rerun the solutions. Besides having all solutions stored, they have also their eventual result (ac, pe, tl etc). They merely take old submission status and feed it to the database. So there's no change in times.

And really, stop panicking. You don't have anything to lose.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

As we're here talking about the storage of old submissions, if really (as I believe) all our solutions-code are stored, would it be possible for a user to download his former submissions (after having identifed himself using is security code - the two letters at the end of the ID) ? That would be helpful when, like me, you've lost most of your codes (I don't chose when my hard drive crashes...)...

could it be done ?
Thanks

Actually it is possible, but I only did it few times. Because the admins are busy enough, I don't want to bother them so much.

There once was a talk about such a feature -- so everybody could just fetch *their* code from the storage banks. But they haven't implemented such a feature yet... I guess they will do it eventually. After all they are trying hard.
