The 2008 ACM South Pacific Programming Contest Results have been confirmed: my team’s come 3rd overall (as expected). We find out whether or not we’ve achieved a wild card position in the World Finals in December.
For the benefit of those who were intersted, Mehffort is a portmanteau of meh and effort, and is a very popular word in the semester 2, 2008 Maclab dialect of English. It is used to convey one’s lack of motivation towards a particular task. In context:
- Me: Paris, help me come up with a witty slogan for the TUCS T-Shirt.
- Paris: Mehffort.
As proud denizens of the Maclab, my ACM ICPC team for this year decided to adopt the word as part of our team name.
