First Ever Won Programming Competition :)

23/08/2008 (COMBAT 08 The first Ever, And yes we made history :) ).

A starter for me and my team (abeer arshad, asad abbas), it was not just like other Sundays as this was the Sunday meant for some reason, i woke up just like other Sundays but a little early as today i have to attend a programming competition. So i woke up at about 10 o' clock in the morning felt very lazy to go at a place which i don't even know the address of :) . But some how managed my self and splashed my eyes with water, i had a pain of last night at my neck as the slap was really hard(last night). When i went down in my colony, i wished that , "kash koi hota jo PAF KEIT chordh daita, ab khuwaar hona pardhe ga". But i didn't got dishearten and had a rikhshaw to take me to PAF KEIT taking asad from house, without knowing where it was, i told the riskshaw wala bhai, can u plz take me to PAF KEIT he told me, that one which is near baloch colony, i told yes yes. Somehow we reached there and got to know that we were going wrong and so went to the correct path as told by others that was PAF BASE FAISAL, so reaching there we faced a reality that, the destination we reached was not the correct one we have to go to korangi for that :O, felt too tiring. But we didn't got down, we gave the riskshaw wala bhai 150 Rs. as he had travelled a way too hard for us ... ! then we caught marwat(a mini bus) from there reached baloch colony fly over, then got into S2(another mini bus) and went to hino chorangi seen first time by me in my life time and suddenly from there we realized where to go :S, then we made a call to atif bhai, thanx to my mobile that was safe after the last nights event :), atif bhai told us go to hino chorangi and make a left turn from there and then follow the way to KEIT, while the other people on the road told not to go right and move straight towards the crossing where we will find the PAF KEIT's way a bit easier than this road, we were really in a trouble where to go, now the time was about 12:00pm in afternoon. after inquiring further for the correct path, we went into F11 (another mini bus) towards crossing :) an uncle was laughing at us, as if we were mad moving here and there, oh mine that uncle's smile was really awesome and made us really smile on that tiring day :) Finally we somehow reached the crossing and then asked a police man for the futher way, he told us to get into another mini bus know as H, we did what he said, oh it was really a tought way even tougher than getting to FAST in bhainscolony ;), after half an hour we finally reached PAF KEIT, oh man we thanked allah that we reached our destination in todays day :), when we got in at the registration desk, we inquired what is the status of the programming competition in which we took part, he told us oh man u are almost 1:30 hours late, man we got down and said, "mashallah ab ander ja ker kia kerain gai, wapis hi aayen gai", but we still made our way inside and there we found out that the competition was not started yet :), we again thanked allah for that.

Now its 15 minutes late, and finally the programming competition is about to start start, hehe we were told that the competition is of about 4 hours, so we went to washroom and _____ out .... ! i think everyone can understand :) . Then on returning we got our question paper and started to work on it, suddenly we found out that the first 3 questions were really easy :) so we tried to do that first, i started to code the first one while abeer and asad were doing their second and third one :), at 18 mins we got out question done :) submitted the second one to do that, but uncertainly we got our question wrong :S , i thought there was some mistake in my code, tried other examples in it, and came to know that there were no errors, the judges were really stupid to check our questions, they corrected us 6 times and at the seventh they excepted the same code as was written in the first try, i was shocked what happened man, we claimed that we were correct at the first one as we didn't changed the code yet, and we got success they made our first try correct :) we were the first ones that submitted that, then asad completed his question, we made that one to have a complete check so that no one can re claim that we were wrong and then submitted that too, now came our abeer bhai, oh man he is really a reverse engineer, he encoded the formula from answer that is he made the question out of the answer and then we again checked the program and then submitted it too :)

after 15 mins we got the confirmation that we got those two also correct, now it was just 1:30 hours passed, and we were done with the three questions :) isn't that gr8 ???? Then we started to have some fun and started to solve the fourth one, suddenly we realized that the name of FAST was on top and our team was the first one to finish those three questions at earliest :) can u imagine :) we were really thankful to Allah but the next two question were really tough enough to solve, but we tried really hard for that, the question were related to graph :( and we didn't remember the algorithm for that :'(, and certainly we gave 1:30 more hours to it but at no avail :( then we saw that PAF KEIT was at the first now :( that was a bit disheartening but no tensions we some how managed to be calm and be on a common goal now it was 3:30 hours passed by and we were on second and the score card flashed out as just half an hour was remaining and we prayed to Allah that plz, do not make us down plz at least not today :) and we chilled the last half an hour we were having hands on with C#, we tried some regular expression and some language tool stuff, finally the time was over and there was a suspense that who will be the second one :O. After 1:00 hour from that we were called by the TPS (Software house's head) he said u are team 4 members ??? we introduced ourself to them and then told them that we were in semester 5th, on other thoughts agar 7th main hote to job confirm thi yaar :D . But it was not the correct time, now we met the gr8 ali bhai the sponsor of Event, remember that ali bhai from NUVICA PAKISTAN. He was well dressed but we were not liking him that way so as the time went we made a real gr8 fun out of him, oh man he must be giving me the bad words as soon as he reached his home back :), well back to the event we had the fun for about 4 - 5 hours and at 9PM the closing ceromony took place.

Now we were at real tension of who will win from FAST as we got to know from somewhere that our another team was in the top three, we were just praying that plz Allah do not make us feel bad today plz at least not today and we started waiting for the results of Programming competition, and result finally was announced, First in the programming competition is PAF KEIT, it was no surprise but all the KEITians cheered as this was an acheivement to them, there team went to stage and got there prize and sheild .... ! Now the announcer started again and the Second Prize For The Programming competition goes to FAST - NU karachi, but its not enought as there were four teams from FAST karachi ............... ! we were still then they announced the team members asad abbas, abeer arshad, amir ali and hurrays ! my God we actually did it, we were still in a shock, is that really a truth ???? But then we realize oh yes it was :) and we also got a good appreciation from PAF KEITians :) although there was none of the FAST members to wish us :( but we were really proud of being a FASTian, this was the first time in my life i felt proud to be a FASTian :D, then we went to stage to have our prize :) and a wonderful shield, we were also announced an internship but do not know if we will have that or not :) but thats ok. Then after the ceremony we had a dinner, image with whom, it was the Mr. Sponsored By NUVICA Pakistan, our gr8 ali bhai :), jin ki take bohot hui hai :), Ali bhai maaro gai to nahi na. Yaad hai woh TPS ke baloons aur jhandiaan :), Then it was about 12 at night and we were feeling danger of getting robbed again, although we didn't had anything to be robbed but, literally i was not in a mood of getting another slap so we didn't waited for anyone there simply we had a taxi which was purely Sponsored By Nuvica Pakistan but a ten Rs. of mine so partially Sponsored by Amir Ali Jiwani ;), and we got to home safely with a check of double than our size, that was a demo check we will get the real money after 2 months :) but still the happiness of being second in overall pakistan is not just for money it is something else a feeling of comfort :)

Really it was the occasion that i truly celebrated with my family at about 2 am on that same night and subha uni ka tulla :) Is se acha aur kuch ho ga :)

A Memorable Day

22/8/2008 was a really a night to remember for me and some of my friends. Starting from the day ..... !

We just kept enjoying the whole day, in the day we had a programming competition in NED(ITEC 2008), we enjoyed in that alot and almost 3 -4 hours we were 2nd in competition but when the second half started we all got down as the questions were all about permutation :P we didn't knew that thing so we came in top 5 in that competition :), that was a gr8 feeling there and we hoped and prayed that we will do better the next time. Then after attending the closing ceremony there we went to Clifton where we were invited by our great CEO Ali Raza Shaikh and CTO Munir Usman from Nuvica Pakistan :P for a interns party :P boys night out :D. The party was about to start at Bar-B-Q tonight when we reached there it was almost 8:10 PM, we enjoyed alot there, the food was great and the CEO and the CTO too were :P we had a great (take) of all the buddies there including CTO and CEO themselves, we were a team of 9 including:
uzayr(batch mate), salman bhai(gulham qadir), salman bhai 2(senior), atif bhai(WM vice president), asad abbas(batch mate), Daniyal(the danny himself), ali bhai(CEO Nuvica Pakistan), munir bhai(CTO Nuvica Pakistan), amir ali JIWANI (me myself).

After the dinner we went to have some Hukka out there at damascus. (And a secret name given to it by our dear gulham qadir). After having some hukka shukka, we all said good bye to each other and, munir bhai and ali bhai started moving towards their destination and dani said bubye and started moving in his personal CAR :) we the group of six went towards shawn circle infront of dunkin donuts and was waiting for the bus to arrive and take us near to our house, our friend gulham qadir was the first one to catch a bus for him self, he said bubye and went, now we were five and waiting for the bus, we crossed the road as we thought that the bus will not arrive on this road, suddenly during the wait period our beloved atif bhai crossed the road again, we were shocked why atif bhai was doing that, we didn't knew that this was for a reason, so after 5 mins we 4 also crossed the street, but we didn't inquired well that why atif bhai was doing that thing ? Now we all were waiting in front of dunkin donuts for the bus to arrive in that wait periods suddenly 3 persons from no where arrived :O. Shoked again we didn't knew them at all.

A person came near to me and asked , "Bhai time kia hua hai zara batao to" and suddenly SLAP(Sponsored by Nuvica Pakistan :P) :'( wtf! a huge Slap , i was not in my senses , when i saw him he had a gun in his hands and shouted "bay mobile nikal , nikal mobile saale", and i said "nahi hai check kerlo" and he thought i was serious, and suddenly started to check, in the mean time the other person was busy kicking asad abbas, i do not know what the hell was going on they were beating us like animals, they checked us all for any resources we had, uzayr got his mobile stolen, salman bhai 2 got his mobile and bank check stolen :( and asad abbas too got his mobile stolen, but i was safe in fact i got the highest beating but still i was safe in the case of wealth, then again after inspecting me that same person turned to me and said , "saale batwa(wallet) nikaal, jaldi ker , jaldi ker , de raha hai ke nahi saale". I was still shoked and noticing him, he seems to be idiot, he checked every pocket of mine and again he was saying that thing. I do not know where he came from, well after doing all that they crossed the street and went on their bikes. After this we heard a voice saying, "main ne kaha tha jaldi kero". Shocked again, this was atif bhai from the gate of dunkin donuts, we told them , "bhai bata to daite app ne jab dekha tha to", he told, "main ne tumse kaha tha lekin tum logoon ne suna nahi". We were out of notice, when he told us ???? :S when he was coming near us a person spoken up and said, "bhai yeh app ke dost thay kia", we felt like killing him and the anger was shown by some words from uzair, he said "bhai chor thay sab lut gaya humara aur app keh rahe hain ke dost thay". Khair after that i was really injured and my hand wasn't moving from my neck where he(ass hole) slapped me, we took a riskshaw in a real hurry, then while in rikshaw, the driver was noticing me and after a few minutes while we were on fly over he turned and asked, "bhai ki nas chardh gayi hai kia gale ki jo haath rakh ker baithai hain", then we told him the whole story that we faced a few minutes ago. He also told his story for of his passengers bags stolen from a moving rikshaw, then he said plz say thanx to god, that they didn't killed u all. Then after sometime we all reached at home safely without money.

Now u will be wondering how was all my things safe else the university ID card, and some Bar-B-Q tonight tissues (the were really sick they didn't left the tissues as well). Now thats a mystery, when my boss gave me the check for my internship, i kept it in my socks immediately, without looking here and there, and while moving towards our bus stand i did the same with my mobile, so when they came to me and checked they didn't found that things in any of my pocket, i was 007 that day hahahahahahahaha :) now for the money i didn't know how they were not able to detect the money in my pocket, there were 200 Rs. in my pockets. After getting back home i realized that there was something in my pocket and yes that was my money, i thanked god for this much safety. Although today is the third day after that slap but there is a mark on my neck, he slapped me so hard. After getting back home i got a call from my CEO ali bhai, now it was his time, i was really tired after having such a nice dinner and a slap from the robber, ali bhai was making fun of me on the phone and munir bhai the CTO too did the same. This was all sponsored by Nuvica Pakistan. So be aware. ........ !

now its the time for comments :)
