This is a stupid Cody challenge.
You just have to click "Submit" between 7 and 9 AM. ... Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). To see the time in the GMT time : http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/
The test suite only checks the current hour .
Aurelien, it might be nice if the assert had an error message (eg assert(isequal(y,y_correct),sprintf('%s','Time is ',datestr(now,'hh')))
So, does this only work if you are clicking 'Submit' between 7 and 9 EST?
Nope. Tried at 7:08 AM EST, and got it wrong. What time zone are we dealing with here?
Thanks Richard for the tip. I have now added the assert that you suiggested. In France it seems that you can solve it between 9 and 11 o'clock . I guess that these + 2 hours correspond to the difference with UTC (or GMT) .
That's why I used the NaN on my Prime Time problem that's similar to this one. isequal with NaN will return false. :-)
I had to submit my solution at 4:30 am local time to be between 7 and 9...too sleepy to think about that :-)
Ok!! this IS an argument! ;-)
this can be toped! ;-)
At last, a bright side to having a screaming baby wake you up at an ungodly hour: An honest solution to a Cody problem. :-)
This one is correct anytime.
true! I won't change the test suite because your trick is really nice ;)
