by Nicholas Howe
This seems to do worse than the default. But it's my first effort, so I am submitting it anyway. :-)
by Nicholas Howe
2006-11-29 10:01:00 UTC That's a bit better...
by Nicholas Howe
Fixed a bug in "worse than nothing".

Added code, but didn't improve the result.

One way to get results...

Slightly more clever.

Had to try it.

I was hoping this contest would be about something that would prepare us to tackle the Netflix Prize!

Brute force, yeah.

Even more brute force.

by Doug Hull
This is what I developed on paper. It took about two hours to figure out and four hours to code.

Oops, the last one had an old internal contest entry at the begining that blocked my real code!

2006-11-29 20:16:05 UTC objects killer
by Leo Come
My first atempt, with a brutal method.
It start from top-left edge, and try to catch & destroy every object.
Some boundary problem, patched with poor issues.
These boundary problem can be better resolved.

by Tristrom Cooke
A fast but dumb way for extracting the outer weights, assuming that there is only one reflection. It beats guessing all zeros, but not by
too much.

by Nicholas Howe
This was a lot of effort, and seems not to be worth it. On the test suite, it does much more poorly. Too many test beams?

Naive solution, and doesn't work well for now.

Tried an edge-handling variant. Doesn't seem to help on the test suite.

by Nicholas Howe
Got the edge-handling variant to work.
by Nicholas Howe
2006-11-30 05:00:30 UTC SoSimple!
by Nicholas Howe
Applied the edge-handling variant to my original, simple decimator program. Works pretty well, but not as good as CloseShave on the test suite.
