We just reached node #200,000, and the results from the contest are in. (drumroll, please)

First of all, node #200,000 was indeed a non-normal node, so the timestamp of #200,001 will be used instead (though it doesn't actually change who won).

The actual timestamp is Sun Sep 22 23:54:58 2002 which was a mere 5 minutes 2 seconds away from gri6507's guess of Mon Sep 23 00:00:00 2002

Congratulations gri6507, you've just won a limited edition perlmonks mug!!!

p.s. See the list of entries to find out how close others came.

p.p.s. The create time was determined by the output of the following script:

#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; use LWP::Simple; use XML::Simple; my $node = shift || 200_001; my $url = "$node&displaytype=xml"; my $xml = get($url) || die "Can't get $url"; my $parsed = XMLin($xml); my $created = $parsed->{'created'}; if ($parsed->{id} == $node) { print "Node $node was created at $created\n"; } else { print "Data doesn't match node ($parsed->{id} != $node)\n"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
