I agree. I submitted Edgy Baking and received a big X and my heart dropped thinking that now I would need to debug a complicated mix of geometry and interval arithmetic. Luckily I regained my head and hovered my mouse over the X and found out it was just a compile error. I added the algorithms

[gcj] What is the point of giving penalties for C++ compile errors?

I get 4-minutes penalties for compile errors. The compile error can happen even if I check that I can compile on local machine. I can only use the specified version and the OS if I want to be safe. I cannot use other C++ toolchains. Usually the header files cause problems. What is the

As I solved this problem, I noted that the range of dimensions for the cookies was limited to 1 to 250. This interval is less than sqrt(2)^16, and I realized it meant that if you keep track of the intervals, merging them as they overlap, you will never have too many different intervals. Start
