What's the rule?

Or do we try to figure out the rule a different way?

What's the rule? 010001

Or do we try to figure out the rule a different way? Well obviously

I have the perfect plan to figure out the rule! Use the rule and "answer" the following:

I seem to have lost my agenda.

Please help me look for it.

I'm lost, confused, and hopeless without my agenda.

"This is very alarming," I said.
My mom asked, "Did you leave it in your locker?"

How will I survive without my agenda?

I need my agenda desperately!
Please help me find it!

It's no use going to school without my agenda; I might as well stay home today.

I already lost five things today: my agenda, my bus pass, my English essay, my lunch money, and one of my shoes.

It's [It is] not a very good day.

Maybe I can borrow Dana's agenda.

"How on earth did you lose one shoe?" Dana asked.

I didn't tell her about all the other things I lost (she already thinks I'm absent-minded).

I was in despair about my agenda- plus a bit concerned about that English essay- but then I noticed something- it was my agenda!

Everything's all right now... until tomorrow.

Of course, I still have to find my bus pass, my English essay, my shoe...

something obviously in binary, perhaps something to do with the post itself? username information? time of post?

The last 4 binary digits are the parities of the digits of the time of the post (1 for an odd digit, 0 for even). I'm not sure about the first 2 bits though

perhaps the first two are the parities of the date? '09'='01'

although the 4:56am post doesn't fit the 'parity' model... should be '010010', not '010001'.

I think this puzzle's over. The 6 digits go date, hour, and minute of post. 1=odd, 0=even
