Hi, just wondering if anyone knows if there's a 2017 Holiday challenge poster knocking about?

Couldn't see a link on the site...I'd like to post a couple round the office...

I meant an actual poster to print out like previous years....but if that's all there is then that'l have to do!

I'm sure I can edit and print something.... :-)

Curiously, there's a link from https://log.concept2.com/challenges/holiday to that poster.

Day one of the challenge and we have a 13 year star erger who has posted 2,147,483,648m in a single day could prove costly for C2!

I've sent a "contact us" report to Concept2.

It looks like they've interpreted a negative binary number as an unsigned positive integer.
2,147,483,647 == 0x7FFFFFFF
