380-355
2010
The 355th day of 2010 was December 21, and the "380th day" of 2010 (the 15th day of 2011) was, of course, January 15.
380-355=25.
This might again be a range, as the kill clue for fm was.

This clue is not that difficult, but since I am a benevolent assassinator, I will give you an extra day to solve this. On top of that, I will give you a hint:
State College
Remember, you now have until Saturday. Do not waste my gift.

I guess I could get involved in this now.

State College High School lost the 2010 National Quiz Bowl tournament championship game, 355-380. (EDIT 1: I know this because they won this year.) So, I think the clue is targeting Quiz (or me, luo, or Eviscerator, because we just went to 2011 HSNCT. Heck, it could be targeting anyone who went to 2010 HSNCT, BUT most likely it is targeting quiz.)

Of course there could be the off chance that there is someone on the forums from State College.

Well, it would appear that my hint might have been too revealing. No matter, this clue will stump you.
278, 116

Decide quickly, or after two days I will hex my target.

278 in hexadecimal is 116; 116 in hexadecimal is 74.

This clue really is not that hard. Here, I'll give a hint:
THERE IS NO CIPHER
Carry on.
