It is not accepting the correct answer. Anyone else experiencing this?

No, it's still working correctly.

Post ok then clearly I am failing to understand something Reply with quote
I am clearly failing to understand something at a deep level then. I wrote my own code in c++ including my own multiply and subtract functions to support arbitrarily large integers. My code output matches the correct answer for the over 50 test cases I ran against sites that convert between bases (for test cases small enough for them to support) and my work by hand. I have yet to find a case that doesn't work besides the one from this site. So I guess I ask...is there a trick? Some anomaly in the source code that I'm supposed to incorporate into my answer? Is the starting number not base 10 but maybe hex or some other base? Could this (if it was in hex) actually by a two's complement number? These are the types of answers I'm now exploring because this challenge obviously isn't as straight forward as it seems.
