2012 Canadian Computing Competition, Stage 1
Problem J3: Icon Scaling
You have been asked to take a small icon that appears on the screen of a smart telephone and scale it up so it looks bigger on a regular computer screen.
The icon will be encoded as characters (
in a 3 × 3 grid as follows:
*x* xx * *
Write a program that accepts a positive integer scaling factor and outputs the scaled icon. A scaling factor of k means that each character is replaced by a k × k grid consisting only of that character.
The input will be a positive integer k (k < 25).
The output will be 3k lines, which represent each individual line scaled by a factor of k and repeated k times. A line is scaled by a factor of k by replacing each character in the line with k copies of the character.

Anyway, isn't the runtime for this supposed to be 2 seconds? And the memory limit supposed to be 128M?
I've updated time and memory limits for ccc12* to more reasonable values.
PS: Thread.sleep() ;)
