Why don't I see my solution (__author__ = "dOb") in the results? I'm
sure that you got it as you replied to my mail.
Where do the timing results come from? Is it the number that
fly_test.main(['fly']) outputs? I don't think it is that because with my
solution that would be ~0.06 seconds.
Great competition anyway, I want to see more of these :)
