March2015 was my favorite. Would have loved to pick your brain on that one.

Some old timers there didn't stop even after solving...

Thanks, I've not participated on the monthly competition since September 2017.
And these are all of my (unedited) messages, so in rare cases you could see that my first submission was wrong (but in each month I have reached the correct solution).
Currently I have enough own projects.

Hating you for not using ISO-8601 for folder names.

I thought Hungarians are very tidy persons (that is why Microsoft calls it "hungarian notation", isn't it? - which, by the way, I love very much. I mean the notation, not Microsoft).

Now you want me to spend ages jumping from here to there so see the solutions in order?

OK, done, you know I'm as a Hungarian using that date format, but as "Ibm ponder this" used the different format so used that. We are using lots of other things in different order say the first name comes in the second place and the surname in the first place.

Thought that at github you can do the ordering, but not (I've uploaded in order the files). There are other issues with github, say you can't upload more than 100 files at once, but there is a workaround for this, then why this silly restriction?

Much better.

Man,you really found very nice "contraptions" for few of those! (we are still looking, but the free time is scarce). We may comment to few, in the future, up to the available time and mood. Especially to some we could not solve...
