Thanks
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Maybe another place for uploading could be found, like Google drive that Dann mentioned? With mediafire download, I think I got a bit annoying browserscript that I could only shut down by restarting Firefox completely. Not sure what it was just not liking blocking tracing etc., but I'm sure it is better to avoid that sort of thing. Separate files for sources and executables can probably be handled as a simple attachment here if they are each small enough. As long as the sources are available too it is alright.
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first
place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you
are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

Current Sting takes a long time (23:52 on a moderate system) to solve problem 90. Is that expected?
