    Aw, come on freaky, give someone else a chance. You've already won two already. That's why I'm not playing again this year.

    I really enjoy this contest, but I do already have a pretty decent Sebatron set up. If Seb would rather I didn't play, that would be fine with me (I'm sure my fiance would be ecstatic...). Honestly, I'm not sure I want to put in the effort it takes to win this time. On the other hand, it's so much fun! Maybe we should level the playing field and start me off with negative points. Or, if Seb's willing, we could change the prize structure if I win: I get a few stickers and a t-shirt (or even a discontinued unit?) , well second place gets a discount off the purchase of a vmp 2000e. I dunno, I'm just throwing out ideas here...

    I didn't think Sebastian would have a problem with it, but to me, it's a question of honor. Glad to see you understand where i'm coming from freaky. I guess you deserve to win, if you can put up with the abuse again!

    this is not a guess: 11982686000 inches per second. :!:

    Open letter to all: This contest is a great way for Sebatron to promote and advertise. I can say from experience that Seb makes an awesome product and I think it's well worth the effort to win. I've made a promise to myself that I won't allow myself to loose any sleep over the contest again this year. This means that anyone who is willing to put in a little effort should be able to beat me easily... I won't lie, it's still going to be hard to win. If nobody is willing to work for it, I'll gladly take home another vmp 2000e. Right now, anyone who tries can win this as I'm fully prepared to bow out if it's a challenge again this time... In other words, get in there and fight! You know the prize is worth it, work for it! Have fun and teach me a little humillity! As of this writing, there are only two answers to the question. If you look, you'll notice that both answers are wildly different. Obviously, both answers can't be correct and maybe both are wrong! Here's a perfect chance to score a few points :wink: You really don't want to make this easy for me do you? :lol:

    Freaky, I had you wrong. You are a class act.

    People, freaky is giving you a gift here. He is an insanely strong competitor. I only wish he would have given me the same courtesy! The last contest was pretty strong all the way to the end. I hope this one is as good.

    Get in there guys! Trust me, it's well worth it (but only once in a lifetime ;)).

    Since nobody posted to FIVE decimal places, but rather SIX, my vote is:

    I'll try that 5 decimal place idea as well.

    Could someone give me an example of your figures...wondering why I'm getting something "relatively" different.

    I'd like to know how people are expected to get five decimal places. The speed of light by definition (since 1972) is 299,792.458 km/sec. This number has nine significant figures, so that sets a limit on the ammount of significant figures the final answer can contain.

    the conversion from metric(m/sec) to US(in/sec) allows for the decimal.
  19. David French

    David French Well-Known Member

    I don't understand your point, abmac. It seems to me that any additional figures generated by the conversion factors are meaningless since the precision is limited by the speed of light to nine significant figures
  20. that would be
