Yeah, I was just wondering if there was a way to omit without doing this.


Only in the Admin portal: advanced search (i.e. including stuff with negating conditionals) is far off since I'm working on Moxon primarily.

Hmm...I'll admit, it's not promising. I have designs drawn up, and some local code, but then--well, to be totally open, Ashwin made his mobile app, and people seemed pretty happy with it, so my motivation got decreased further.

I do want to promise that Moxon will be here eventually! I code for a living, so it's not like I can ever really get away from this >.> I thought I had accounted for this potential lack of motivation in my initial estimates, but, you know, Hofstadter's Law...

Speaking of that, as Tycho is a hybrid app made using Ionic (HTML and Angular), you can also use Tycho online: http://tycho.outplayedapps.com/ I haven't worked much on it so some things such as text-to-speech will need to be reimplemented and the design may need to be changed to make it better use the desktop's larger screen size, but it's there.

2017 Penn Bowl
Lederberg 2
GRAB BAG
2018 ACF Regionals
2017 EFT

Questions uploaded today. Sorry that I haven't uploaded in two months: it may be significantly faster, but I still have to work up the effort to get it done...

Gonna try and do a bunch of MS/easy HS next, but it looks like there aren't that many MS questions on the archives. If you have any that you've been sitting on, please do upload them!

Are they any intentions to add the new released hs sets once summer comes around?

This is a minor issue, but the error/correction box always appears at the very bottom of the page to the left.

Yep! I work on a Machiavellian love/fear of the community basis, though, so best way to get the sets you want uploaded is to post about specific ones here, and I'll do my best to upload those first :)

:( I got halfway through last Sunday until midnight hit and I turned back into a pumpkin. (Or work called, your choice.)
