I just noticed the recurrent usage of the string "hibar" in that email.

HIBAR is an acronym for High Bandwidth Auroral Rocket - any significance?

As I asked in the chat yesterday if someone has done it before, I tried to translate it with google, but nothing happend. Found it on http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Find_815_clues/December_31 as text, not as a jpg.

Thought, there may be a second hint in it. But from which language into which should it be translated? I tried English-German and Korean-English. Didn't help at all ;)

I think, it was a bad idea ;)

i think there are only random simbols repeated... (at least in the middle part)

Pawel said...

@ bcollins: what appears is the string "&hibar;" which is HTML code for a spacing symbol (ascii 175)

Ahhh...thanks pawel! I've spent the past hour or so looking at HIBAR - oops!

There's a pattern. There is 3 subpatterns, lets call them A,B and C. The secquence starts in the third line after the first solid line, it's repeated like this:
ABAC, ABAC, ABAC
There is a small deviation in the transition between A and B each time the ABAC pattern is restated.

I'm also working on deconstructing all the patterns in the email, into atomic chunks. I'm almost there, just some messiness at the end.

The html entity "¨" also appears a few times, for the dieresis (umlaut - ¨) symbol, not the literal "die".

This all suggests TPTB didn't quite get the email outputted correctly, from their source code.

so in one of the other posts some people were mentioning that they "clicked" on the "the-maxwell-group.com" link. I noticed the URL when I first looked over this email on the site and typed it into my browser, but I can't find an actual functioning link of it on the site.
What am I missing here?

Jacob said...

theres a link at the top of this page.

Michael -
It's one of the "mini games" on find815.com. You click on the-maxwell-group.com to show that you found what the game was asking you to find. When you click on it, it completes that activity. Its not an actual link that goes to the site.

cody- I clicked on the "link" in the email and it is still showing my activity as incomplete. Is there a certain way to click it so it registers?
