OK, is it just me, or is it a "You know your a TopCoder when" you have a really good SRM, with probably the longest piece of code you've written and debugged during an SRM, and you keep reloading your rating graph, and have to read your code again and again?

EDIT: There, just did it again.

When you internally say "Thanks TopCoder for bringing me back, in some way, all those feelings I had on my high school days, when I used to have one small math contest each week for 2-3 months each year".

This is true, once I finished high school I felt incomplete, I needed to compete, that had become a part of me, a part of my life, a really important part. I managed to resist 1 year without competitions, then I finally found TopCoder, and with it, the programming contest world.

I'm pretty sure this is the same for many TopCoders.

When you log in to TopCoder arena and feel bored so you decide to play a game with your friend in which he chooses a random room and goes there and you try to find him without using "Search" in the arena, but with only him whispering to you if the new room you go to is closer or further to the room he chose, and you do a binary search to play the game :)

You receive a T-shirt from TopCoder in the mail and revel in the glory of it and forget the fact that you did poorly in a programming competition that same morning.
