We thank all of our participants for their effort and their enthusiasm. Your substantial collective work (about 18 person years of work, by one estimate) made this contest matter. We hope you will join us again next year for another great contest!
Results for the lightning round are published here.
Results for the final round are published here.
8/15/08. Note: In the final round only, the rules have been relaxed to include teams whose code expected an IP address instead of a hostname as a command-line argument. This had the effect of including some teams in competition who had been heretofore disqualified. Unfortunately, we did not have time to re-run the lightning round trials, so those results stand.
If your team does not appear in the results for the first trial (for either the lightning or the final round), it is because your submission failed to install or run.
Common errors included failure in the bin/install script and failure to establish a connection to the server within a one minute time limit.
