It's probably really not healthy, but I suppose if people can go on hunger strike for 10 days and stay alive, 30 hours can't create any long term damage ?

4 hours without food gives me strong stomach pain.

Once when I was a student in Debrecen, I arrived home from the university around 10:30-11:00 p.m., without having eaten anything that day. I remember, I had to cook then, I had my breakfast around 11:30 p.m., that must be my record.

Unfortunately, I did not memorize the time of the dinner on the previous day.  :o

Answers sent, I have a bad feeling about these. About the (not) eating thing. I ate like a beast last night after I posted the message and then got sick, vomiting and everything. Doc said I shouldn't have eaten enough to compensate, but just what a regular meal is. BUT I WAS REALLY HUNGRY!! Oh, well...

Binary - decimal conversion needs only patience. The dice... well, that's easier.

An interesting site: http://anydice.com (dice probability calculator, not only for cubic version)

I used a calculator - but I thought it isn't disallowed. If it's a problem, you can take the 'best tip' away from me for the binary-decimal conversion case.

I still think that this kind of questions are meaningless. If you are good at Maths, you can calculate the values (I think I would have been able to calculate it on paper, but it would have taken awfully a lot of time). I can't really see the difference between using a calculator and using a paper, a pencil and your brain - those are assistances as well, making the whole tipping a calculation game. It is the same for the date difference calculation/tipping as well...

Well, I agree that if you start calculating, maybe it isn't really "estimation" anymore. But I'm just asking because I was informed directly by CTG that I was not allowed to use a calculator, so I attempted to calculate the binary number only with the help of my brain and Notepad. But I made two mistakes, so the final result went off. My brain is not a calculator.
But we can't be quite sure.

I'm answering you because I wasn't told that. Therefore, I'm obviously not 'proud' of my 'winning' 'tip'.

This is the beginning period of a game (only 2nd round), the rules has to be set first CLEARLY. Or, I suggest, CTG (or anyone who write questions) may neglect 'calculation type' questions.

This is not a bloody contest - just a game. But yes, you are right, I should say "don't use a calculator" earlier.
