Post Too Many Digits Reply with quote
Wasn't actually difficult to get the required part of the data, still, the answer is not right, i tried +-2 too.

my sequence begins with 3072...

I haven't solved that so far, but I just discovered that I have interpreted the numeric value in a wrong way.
Instead of taking _one_ sexdecillion (10^51), I took _six_ decillions (6*10^33).

Maybe that helps.

Well, I don't want to spoil anything, my clue is: just think about how you exactly access a string if you want the N-th char!

Hm,
I don't know about a hacker.org chat but it would be very nice to discuss about some of the challenges.
Maybe we should create an IRC channel?

You're so close.

Double check HTTP protocol for you error.

I tested and its more than willing to give data outside the range of the answer, but apparently you can't be too far off or you get the "out of range" error.

All I can say is that your answer is not the "sixdecillion number".

I'm afraid if I try to say why your answer is not the sixdecillion number, i'd give it away Wink

minus: As far as hacker.org chat goes, its probably not a great ideas as you know answers are bound to be leaked. At least here they can tie a post/PM to an account/IP Wink

As for the challenge, I don't have anything more to say Wink

I have a problem with this challenge: i tried all versions of header fields from RFC 2616, but i always get "400 Response body too long", even if i only specify one character (byte) - range.
Am i on the wrong trail?

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

It's OK Question
