2017 Holiday Challenge

Post by joels » November 13th, 2017, 8:03 am

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

I think it would be fun to be able to sort also results not only by country and affiliation but by Verified/Non-Verified :) Three days in and someone already has 325k wow that's wild I know how I felt after 100k cant imagine doing more than that three days in a row what a beast!

But yeah 2,147,483,647 in one day is definitely hard to swallow hahah
