ACM Challenge - January's Problems

//to programmers

One of my 2009 resolutions is to solve 2 ACM problems per month. I haven't done that since 2005! The UVa Online Judge offers a wide selection of problems. you can submit your solution in "C, C++, Java, or PASCAL". From my experience => Java is slow, C is hard (String is an array of chars!), C++ was the best, and I don't know PASCAL! I will give Java another shot if not, I'll stick with C++.

I have selected two random problems with high success rates.

10015 - Joseph's Cousin
10019 - Funny Encryption Method

Any one interested? :p

Ah good old days!

I solved 3 in the challenge 3 years back, but that was it. C++ has been erased from my memory. All PHP now.

Good luck!

(Java stinks...)

Java is slower in general than C++, but you make it sound too slow :)
