Claudio got the closest. He predicted the 18th and the updated started the 18th.
Although I predicted sometime between start of the thread and June 30th 1912.
The Adobe-Admin owes him the most expensive Steak dinner at the Angus Barn in Raliegh, NC. All expense paid for Tansportation and overnight stay at the closiest Motel.
I've ate there once and steaks were so tender you could eat them with a spoon.
Well, I would guess that John C. will invite Claudio to the Official Adobe Cafeteria (San Jose, CA, USA) for the Friday Maine Lobster Lunch. However, Claudio might have to pick up the plane ticket from Santiago.
Way to go Claudio!!!!
I predicted sometime between start of the thread and June 30th 1912.
Wasn't that the date of the nomination of Woodrow Wilson?
[Edit] No, that was a few days before. June 30 was the date of the deadliest tornado in Canada, which hit Regina. Hey, almost the same thing, just different countries, though joined by a common border.

Claudio... he bet 18th actual was 17th
I said between the 15th and 22nd and half way of the two dates is also close enough.
I gave a specific date, while you gave a week long range, and others gave even ampler ranges. But if you think that you have better rights for the prize, I'll gladly resign to it in your favour, even though my bet now appears embedded in the opening message and prominently marked as the Correct Answer... In any case, I would't be in a position to pay for my journey to the USA and back to receive a free breakfast or a tin medal...
For YOU, we might be able to take up a collection for that airline ticket, or maybe I can pledge some of my United Airlines "Miles" to that endeavor. Even if UAL does not fly to Santiago, I will bet that one of their "partner airlines" does.
In the meantime, this star is for you!
Way to go,
Very many thanks, Bill. However:
And I do not need or expect any other prize.
Just in case: .
