C: scanf("%d %d", &integer1, &integer2);
C++: int x; cin >> x;

Output --
Java: System.out.println("asdf");
C: printf("%d %d", integer1, integer2);
C++: int x = 5; cout << x << endl;
General Java class names?

Please use the following class names (make sure classes are public):

I - Push-To Telescope Is the base plane of a telescope at the equator the equatorial plane, or the plane perpendicular to the equatorial plane?

You just made me read the statement. If you re-read it, you'd find out out that the answer is "neither". At least that is how I understood it. Finding what the "base plane of telescope" seems to be what the problem is actually asking for. Or I misread it but I bet you can make more sense out of it.
D - Maximum Random Walk Did I submit "" when I submitted D or did I accidentally submit the wrong file?

Yes, you submitted It is very unlikely that you could get the 'Incorrect Output' with a different file.
G - Mad Veterinarian G may need a special judge so ignore the auto-judge responses for this problem for now

Writing a corrector.
G - Mad Veterinarian What's the most number of input and output animals a question might have?

Read the problem statement (standard response)

"Decimal digit" implies that max is 9.
H - Windmill Animation When does the sequence end? Should it go until you return to the starting point and the starting angle or just until you return to the starting angle?

I think that samples can clear that up for you.
G - Mad Veterinarian What if there are several optimal solutions?

Print the lexicographically smallest one - beats creating the checker.
General Can we keep solving problems?

I'll let this run for another week or so. Judged every 2 minutes.
