September has properly set in, and as the contest support in the Sphere Online Judge matures from alpha-stage to release quality, we would like to invite you to participate in the VI-th edition of the DASM Programming League: http://liga.sphere.pl
The league will really start on October 9, and by that time it ought to have evolved into a fully-fledged public SPOJ contest, and should feature new, hopefully original problems. In the meantime, participants of the league are encouraged to solve the warm-up problems from the SPOJ archives.
This is also a good moment to discuss and possibly alter this year's rules, and in particular - the scoring model for challenge problems (it may possibly be adopted in other contests, if it works out fine). If you would like to contribute to the discussion, please feel welcome to add your post to the forum.
