I'm 20, moved to NYC, USA from HK.. only started (any type of algo) a year ago, sad thing too, because now I'm so behind everybody.. (though I'm up to 300 right now..)

Hi Folks,

I'm 37 ... and I wouldn't have posted my age if "little joey" wouldn't have.
I've solved 7 problems since Jan 2003 (and have contributed 1).

I would like to express my deep respect towards anybody who has honestly solved hundreds or even beyond 1000! Wow! That is a "level" (rate) way beyond mine.

"Solving problems" in general seems to be somewhere in my genes and that is why I had to find ACM. I have an interesting full-time job in the field of embedded control, but as the career of an engineer goes (or maybe as our "time" is changing in general) the fascinating aspects of problem solving, algorithm finding and "neat" things like that are decreasing - that's why I try to find time for ACM problems (besides my job and my family). I keep my brain "sharp" that way and there's always something to learn on the way.

Yours, Eric
