TMG Authorization Error Page



I took a screen shot of the authorization error page from the maxwell group site. It's still down and appears will be back up and running in a couple of days.

It has said that since the beginning.

Note the time... 815.

I'd be super bummed if we get the password wednesday and have to wait until thursday to find out. Maybe one is given in the premeire of the show? Likely won't just be handed to you, I think we'll all need to be paying very close attention indeed if we don't get the login information by the end of this game.

Speaking of which... any thoughts on when this thing ends? Wednesday? Thurday before the show? Maybe this game is somehow part of the premiere and doesn't end until friday??? Very curious.

I heard find815 ends 2 hours before the season premiere airs. I'm guessing there will be a cliffhanger at the end of chapter 5 that will follow on to the premiere of season 4.

Mike Anderson said...

good info lostfan, thanks!

ReignkingTW said...

Huh? Great discovery??? I'll echo what Mike said -- this is old news and has said this since the beginning.

Jeremy said...

I guess I just noticed that the site used UTC time (GMT). That means 08:15UTC is midnight Thursday/Friday....

There has been a similar message there since the beginning but I am almost certain that the date has changed. I seem to remember the original date coming and going and nothing happening. Just a heads up, don't feel like looking through the old posts right now.

Nope, the date is still the same. There is no correct input for the username and password because there is no php script to handle the input and verify it. Untill they update the submit button to have an action with it - action=".../login.php" for example, there is nothing to verify the input.

i bet they announce the password to the maxwell site on the "exclusive oceanic announcement" during eli stone.

Mr_Eko said...

I'm not sure, The Maxwell group are a secretive organization, would oceanic airlines give out the password in an announcement? It would seem a little.... Random. If it is to be revealed in the announcement it would flash in frames or give us clues in frames, but find815 will be finished by the time Eli Stone airs, correct? So if find815 will be finished, why would they give us more clues to solve?

Rachel said...

Maybe it doesn't really end at that time. They could be misleading us that the game ends at that time, but then we will be able to enter the maxwell group site.

I think the "announcement" will be the discovery of 815 in Sundra Trench. The same story that Naomi claims.

Mr_Eko said...

Yes, and I'm pretty damn sure that Sam will find 815 - full of dead bodies, just as naomi said. Then the question's will be something like.. Is this a cover-up? If so is Mr.Talbot behind it? Did he want Sam to find those co-ordinates? If so why did he not want sam to follow them? Surely if Talbot is behind all this he would want Sam to follow them, right?

mr eko...

just a thought...

We've seen people previously thought dead on the island (the latest mobisode with Jack's father for example). Perhaps we see the plane with all the bodies, and maybe clearly recognizable faces... total mindf...

The Orchid orientation video is going to prove to be very important in helping to do some of the 'splainin that needs to be done.

To Lostfan:
The submit button on TMG web actually have a "login.php?" action. Click it and see the status bar of your browser or look at the source code of the page (location.href="login.php?" + username +":" + apassword). So maybe the "Authentication Server Temporarily Down" is just a default page for a bad login.

LostFan_4815162342 said...

I'll explain it to you simon.

The text you in the username input box and the text you put in the password box are read by javascript using the same function as document.getElementById (Which reads the value of a form element i.e text input, radio button and a select list like the one to our right - labels.)

The Id is set to the text input areas here : div class="entry"
Username:input type="text" value="" id="username"

And the same with password but the Id will be apassword. Now Javascript sets the value of those two inputs, assigns them to variables and puts them in the url box with the click of one button - Submit:

div class="submitter"
input type="Button" value="Submit" onClick="javascript:loginNow(username.value, apassword.value)"

onClick - Speaks for its self.

javascript:loginNow - The function that you will call when you click.

(username.value, apassword.value)" The values that will set to the variables "username" and "apassword" How were the variables declared you may ask? Look below :

function loginNow(username, apassword) - the variables are set in the parentheses without a value, this is higher up in the source code but does nothing untill the submit button is pushed which will be explained below.

{
location.href="login.php?" + username +":" + apassword;
} - The url + the variable "username" - which now has a value and "apassword" which also has a value. the page "login.php" currently does nothing with these inputs, all that is done with them is put them in the url - then the variables are gone, as they only last as long as the page they were declared in lasts.
