New statistics page for Project Euler: sort countries by strength

I’ve made a little script that analyzes the statistics page of Project Euler and makes a new stat. page where the countries are sorted by strength. A country is considered to be strong if it has lots of participants.

By default, the site PE shows the countries in alphabetical order. Note that you have to log in to the site to see the stat. page.

The current version of the script is available here, in the project_euler_countries/ folder.

    Hi, nice thing.

    1. This gives which country has invested the most persons in project euler (quite uninteresting)
    2. Someone got the relative number which gives how much a country has invested in project euler relative to their population (still uninteresting)
    3. What we need is the number of problems solved by a country relative to the number of participants.

    That way, we can prove once and for all that Nordics are the best.

      Since then the PE website has changed, so I guess the script doesn’t work anymore; it should be updated for the new site. Your idea could be a useful improvement :)
