From Doc Mana: We made it to the finals!

I am very proud to announce that Ateneo de Manila University’s
programming team, “Res cogitans”, made it to the
ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals
which will be held in Shanghai, China, on April 6, 2005.

The list of finalists is available from,

http://icpc.baylor.edu/icpc/finals/Status.asp

The team won second place in the Asia-Manila regional programming
contest on November 12, 2004, and solved 7 out of 8 programming
problems, the same number as first place winner, University of
Tokyo’ team, “Squeeze”. Ateneo’s team was also declared
“Philippine Champion”.

I believe that this is the first time a Filipino team ever made it to the
ACM-ICPC World Finals, since the contest started in 1977.

Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!

See, I _told_ you they’d do Really Cool Things…
