    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.

    You thought they were going to go back in time and fix things?

    I don't think Al Gore was around to invent the internet in 1912.

    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.

    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!!!!

    Phillip,

     

    I predicted sometime between start of the thread and June 30th 1912.

     

    Wasn't that the date of the nomination of Woodrow Wilson?

     

    Hunt

     

    [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.

    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...

    Obviously, Claudio is the winner.

     

    Halfway between the 15th and the 22nd is the 18th to 19th (or 18th and a half): 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22.

    Claudio,

     

    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:

     

    • I am certainly not a HERO who deserves that his peers collect the money to pay for his round trip to receive a still unknown prize.
    • There seem to be others who think they have equal or better rights than I do for the prize, while I don't think the matter even deserves been discussed at all. I am quite willing for anyone else to get it, if s/he thinks s/he deserves it.
    • And I couldn't think of a better prize for having guessed more or less rightly than the star you have awarded me (although it would be better without that "HERO"), plus the support I have received here from several of my peers as an added and most welcome bonus. My warmest thanks to all of you.

     

    And I do not need or expect any other prize.

     

    Just in case: .
