Ateneo ranks 2nd in programming tilt

Now that someone's written the objective report, I can talk a little bit about the people behind the names... =)

2nd place

Carlos-Miguel D. Arguelles Driven to succeed, and with the skills to back up his ambitions. I had so much fun watching the friendly competition between Miguel Arguelles and Jino Noel in class.
Allan M. Espinosa Quiet but occasionally zany, Allan showed up on our radar when we heard about a non-CS geek who was into Linux and C.
Mark C. Punzalan Punzki's another old hand at contests, having joined international programming competitions since high school. Not to be confused with his older brother Punzie (Jerome Punzalan).
8th place
Mike Gonzalez Dorm network volunteer with a knack for deadpan humor. Mike also won 3rd place in this year's UGotGame programming competition and has also been into contests since his Ateneo high school years.
Jino Noel Mac geek perpetually competing with Miguel Arguelles. Way into the Mac. Did I mention he likes Macs?
Christopher Rigor Quiet, but creative. Seemed to be fairly laid-back and easy to get along with. Sorry, don't know funky details about Topher. Nothing blackmailable. ;)
12th place
Cliff Lim This is the guy who submitted neatly color-coded documentation for his _first year_ project. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that he colored the source code syntax manually. His obsessively complete tendencies have been to his classmates' benefit (ask people who use his notes as reviewers) as well as detriment (ask his groupmates ;) ). He kept my mom up until 3 in the morning with all his questions about the software engineering project they were doing. Very thorough.
Reinabelle Reyes Has joined programming and science competitions since high school, winning an award in the Intel Science and Engineering Fair for her work with neural networks and statistics.
Charles Yeung (Hmm, everyone in this team seems to be of the mostly-quiet-and-serious sort...)
12th place (waaah, I'm getting sleepy...)
Erik Uy Josh Agarrado Russell Santos This group probably had the most out-of-contest fun. They can get pretty rowdy (and rather vocal about bugs! ;) ), but they're always great fun.
Honorable mention
Michael Tan Kendrick Saavedra Akie Mejia Mike and Kenny were in my intro CS class, and they picked up concepts faster than I could teach them. They show a lot of promise. =) I've never taught Akie Mejia, so I don't have much to say...

Bah, my blogroll isn't complete. Know where to find these people? Links and more information would be much appreciated.

3. More about gmane's blogging interface: 20:20

Just heard from the person who suggested it. LuistxoBlog%20-%20Production%20stage%20for%20the%20blog%20interface%20at%20Gmane .

I love the way the Internet works. Constant improvement! Of course, there's a little bit of bitrot, but on the whole, a lot of cool ideas get generated and put into practice very quickly.

Finally got around to moving the page check later. This makes a lot more sense. Thanks to emacs-wiki-discuss for pointing this out!
