[Tutor] ACM programming problems

I swapped email with Antonio Sanchez at the ACM website we have been
referencing on Useless Python yesterday.  After informing them what
we've been up to and giving them a chance to look at the page, I was
told that they hope to keep the problems available for "long" and have
recently upgraded their server.

Mr. Sanchez also proposed that "perhaps you can provide us a python
judge where people can send their solutions".  As far as I can tell,
their site uses a judge program which tests the solutions, although I
don't know how much human involvement in the judging process happens.

Anyway, I found this to be a pleasant and interesting exchange, even
though I know nothing about programming contests and how they work.
