Yes I can...302k-305k?

EDIT: Took that range off the server.

We also can't forget that there should be several gaps in the rally's n-ranges because we previously allowed some manual reservations right in the middle of them.

I said we wanted a fun project. Wouldn't we all have fun seeing what kind of system he came up with to handle that?

Then for the rally after that, perhaps dates in YY/MM/CC/DD format would be good. So today's date would be 08032006. Maybe we could mix in some hours/mins/secs in reverse order at the beginning of the date to make things extra entertaining for the rest of us to watch.

Note: CC = century.

You are hilarious.
Can I throw in some Julian numerics?

yesssssssssss, julian date counting in astronomy (one of my hobbies) is the only true date!
what about that? per definition it's counting the days from 1.jan -4712 12:00 TDT.
so the 1.1.2000 12:00 is 2.451.545,0!
and today is 2454533. and this is a special day 2492807! which one?

But hey, don't do it if it's a pain at all. I only asked because I thought it'd be an easy way to dry his server.
Okay, I guess that won't be a problem (since it's not like the range is going to another LLRnet server or anything).

Okay, thanks for attaching the file, that will be helpful to me.

EXCELLENT!! That helps the project, Beyond, you, and me. Thanks for posting the specific k/n pairs here, which also helps the admins account for everything.

Karsten and Anon, see this range that has been pulled from the port 100 server. Please note it as manually reserved by Beyond. I checked the starting and ending k/n pairs and they look good. In case Beyond doesn't see this, I'll send him a PM with a link to the file.

I'll still have much more to send Beyond before Monday but this is a good start.

Yeah, sure throw in some Julian dates. Karsten obviously likes those. Mix them in with some spelled out dates like "Friday, March 7th", oh and "Friday, the 7th of March". Musn't leave those out.

Xyzzy (Mike), the super mod here, is absolutely hilarious. He's also very good at finding avatars for people. Mine is a little kid's picture of a barn. Can you guess why he chose that one? I see that you have the Grommit avatar at the AMD users site, which is listed as your home page. Being the diligent mod that he is, I'm sure he found that and used it.

Oh! For an even funnier twist, how about we mix in some of the "stardate" dates from Star Trek? (Hmm, I wonder how you calculate between those and regular "earth dates"?)

Being a bit of a Trekkie myself, I know that in TOS, they basically just made up a number so it seemed like "sometime in the indeterminate future" while still having a date.
Ah, here's more info on it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardate
There's no direct relation between Stardates and our Gregorian dates, it's just whatever the writers wanted, more or less, so that won't really work.

I got myself an avatar before he had a chance to make mine, but he did put the "Account Deleted" text there after I made a reference regarding him, the gerbils, and the Log Out button.
Have you noticed that the barn and windmill switch places every 60 seconds? I noticed it when I thought the two were on the opposite sides, and decided to see if it really switched. Open it in an animated image editor to see the two images (I used ImageReady 7).

Edit: Oops, I double posted...while I was working on one, I noticed a new post to reply to, and didn't notice it was the same thread. Oh well.
