This thing has been down for a few years, so I thought it was lost to the sands of time forever. But with that archiving website, I managed to find an old build of the cite. This thing was so hard, it used to take myself, my fantasy/roleplaying friend and our computer science friend to answer most of the questions. It is challenging and amusing.

I should've picked the ridiculous answers instead of guessing when I didn't know to get a better result.

I'm as surprised as you are. I don't think I really knew more than three answers. It was miraculous guessing I suppose.

Some of that is from good guessing, though.

Considering this is the hardest nerd test ever? Good, I'd say. If you want to be a nerd. My score was 51%.

I think that is the highest score I'm aware of anyone getting on a first try. You must play a lot of computer games, know binary, Hitchhiker's guide and Monty Python. Congrats.

I was TREMENDOUSLY surprised I still remembered how to calculate THACO.

I played pre-THACO, but knowing that it stood for To Hit AC 0 made it fairly easy to figure out.

Isn't scoring a repitend decimal a nerd accomplishment in its own right?

I recognized the (2/7) fraction in decimal form, I should get a few more points for that.
