i thought the rules change when there's an immediate pass
sorry
 
103 was Contrapositive (despite the missing definition :D)
 
@EricTressler oh I don't know either
 
Yeah I think you're meant to let others guess, and if nobody can get it then you keep making the clue easier (or give the clue "The word X")
 
@MikeQ oh :P
 
3:23 AM
@Sp3000 Alright, my fault
 
I mean, the effect is the same, but it's just more interesting to see if anyone else knows the word first :P (I didn't for this one though)
 
contrapuntal? o_O
I'm surprised someone other than the defender knew this
 
it's like "the answering tune" in music
 
@ffao I've seen/heard it used and I wouldn't consider myself particularly well versed in music theory :P

@micsthepick are you around?

@ffao I pass 65440, because it's going to bother me until someone tells me what it means
five (digits)?
 
10:43 PM
65440 (dec) = 0xffa0 (hex)
 
I almost guessed your name, but I checked your SE #. I remember now, I've lost on this clue before
Eric is defending F L
 
I remember mics used it against someone, but I didn't know it was you
 
Yeah. My memory is not fantastic
I'm pretty sure I noticed it was very close to 2^16 last time too, so at least I'm predictable.
