    For him it's more like plane ticket money as gas money would probably get him no further than a couple dozen feet into the Adriatic Sea. Less if he's in one of his native Yugos.

    If you have the money to get there and you're willing to use it, then go right ahead, but all indigo said was he didn't have the money (or the will to use the money) to go so he isn't.

    then there's the whole fact as I'm probably not smart enough to qualify (though I'm not dumb enough to enter thinking otherwise )

    Seems really odd to hold an olympiad of informatics in Mexico

    Yugos? They are sold internationally, you know...

    They may not be bought internationally, but they are sold internationally.

    Anyway, I also had a nanny growing up who was from Serbia. She was still young. Now I think she lives in Florida and became a dentist.

    No, I'm sorry. She taught me a few words, but that was years ago and I've forgotten them.

    Every year it changes, just like the real olympics

    Well, I got invited to the final selection proces for the aussie team, but I was away in germany at the time, so didn't go.
    Ah well, yet another oppertunity in life missed, because a second was on at the same time.

    Of course, it was something like the top 20 out of the whole 60 who did it, and half those 60 have never programmed before, hardly heavy competition.

    So it's less like the real Olympics and more like that kiddie crap in D2: The Mighty Ducks 2, eh?
