I think it went fairly well. There were 114 scoring teams (and a few more 0-point submissions) -- not a bad turnout for the start of the season.

There was a problem with the test case for Question 2 -- if your team scored 3/5, you were likely correct in your solution. Everyone was affected the same (sorry if this caused confusion), and we'll be marking that question as being out of 3 points.

Woburn Collegiate Institute was ahead for most of the contest's duration (again), but at the end Vincent Massey has pulled out with an outstanding performance, securing all top 4 positions. Completing the top 10 are Thornlea S.S., Lisgar Collegiate Institute, and Victoria Park C.I.. Congratulations!

Special acknowledgment goes out to Machine Guppy team, with a sole member of Samin Khan, for getting the top score this round. Talk to me about getting hooked up with your signed copy of Little Brother.

Contact me, or post on the forums with any feedback regarding this contest, or DWITE in general -- there are obviously still some issues that we need to address.
