Can anyone please explain what is the meaning of no two stars may be in cells which share a corner or an edge in a Fillomino star.

Is there some technical issue - cannot see the "Start IPC 2015" button anywhere?

Dependency on flash etc ?

Did you see a login box?

It runs on flash, which you can get from https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Remember that Firefox recently disabled Flash plugin, so use a different browser other than Firefox. I can confirm that it works in Chrome.

Also on Opera. It also works on firefox for me, would that be because I have an older version?

Maybe. Doesn't work for Firefox 39.0.3+Adobe Flash 18. Works for Chrome, and works for Opera (after updating Flash and restarting browser).

Did not work on either Chrome or IE or Firefox at 3 different PCs in office - and I did check the flash installation on those boxes (I am still stupefied).

Was about to leave disheartened - when I logged to a fourth PC at office - and bingo I could see the login screen.

Luckily, because I have the administrator password for all pcs in office, I could login through multiple boxes and get one where it worked.

I would suggest putting a test page, where people could login and check their system technological compatibility (say a page for entering answers to puzzles in Instruction Booklet) before the test itself - rather than figuring this out after the test begins.

Thanks to Prasanna and Deb for organizing IPC. Wonderful puzzles as always.

I definitely felt better this year than last year and the dreadful year before last. Except for a couple of small minor stumbles, the test went fairly smoothly for me. Missed the 1000-score, probably needed another 10-minutes or so :-)
Congrats to Amit and Swaroop for 2nd and 3rd. This is the team I predicted and I hope we can achieve India's best rank at the WPC this year assuming we perform consistently and assist Prasanna's tremendous run at the WPCs recently.

Rajesh, seems to be having a year of just missing out. Missed TSC finals by a rank, and now missed the A-Team by a rank. But good to see you still up there.
Ashish... what a wonderful performance. I think we're definitely going to have some interesting competition in the near future. Keep it up.
Rakesh, Jayant, Jaipal... the usual suspects :-)
