Paula said...

just one tthing... why does the unread box says 1 unread still??? i have the same stuff!!

Thomasriekki said...

I just tried to view the email, but it won't let me even click the "Sam's Desk" link...

Try reloading the site thomas.

Sat phone, huh? Now where have we seen one of those before...

xTiffanyTerror said...

So Im guessing that Tracey R is maybe supposed to be Sam's sister? It sort of sounds that way....it is odd that they released it this weekend and without any note of it under the progress section. I think maybe its because the email doesnt say anything we didnt really already know..?

diogoc said...

poor sam, if he was a lost fan he would know about the black rock hehehehe

imho - just speculating: i guess we gonna see this guy hanging around on our dearest island. =)

Paula said...

diogo, i think it would be fun to see Sam on Lost LOL

and i have a feeling something is up with that 1 unread message thing....
could this message been early release or we will have more before tomorrow night???

xTiffanyTerror said...

I hadn't noticed the unread email the first time I looked, and it is weird, but if you look at the total number of emails it says 10 and we can see 10 emails...shouldnt that include the unread one he supposedly has? That would make it 11....

David said...

has anyone noted how clear you can read the writing on the table?

you can read Ocean over the computer amongst other things.

David said...

its in the sent email section

Paula said...

there are 11 emails... but the one where Sam responds to Oceanic about his dismissal has been taken out... early release i think....

xTiffanyTerror said...

Right now showing in Sams inbox/sent folders there are only 10 emails showing, and it says that he has 1 unread and 10 total. I was trying to say that if we counted the unread email that we cant find yet, it would make him have 11 and hes only supposed to have 10. It probably doesnt mean anything but its worth pointing out anything odd at this point lol

jrcaporal said...

that's weird, in my progress thing I have Chapter 1 and 2 Chapters 2

Monk Satyr said...

@xTiffany - nah it's 10 total (9 read - 1 unread)
Tho I'm getting no change on my 'unread' number, maybe just need a reload or a few minutes for the site to catch up.

@Paula - yup there was an email that was released early (it was before anyone received a chapter 1 complete message, i think) and then vanished and the laptop email counter took a while then to reflect that change. I suspect that is what's going on right now.

@jrcaporal - i had that, reload fixed it

Have we seen the Christaine I on Lost before? Is it the name of Desmond's boat? Probably not, but I can't remember. Could it be Rousseau's boat? The freighter?

I don't think Sam will show up on the freighter (or the island), but it would be really cool if he did!

only a coincidence?

thatd be cool if they explained how the black rock ended up on the island in this arg

tdciago said...

So Tracey has a pet (dog?) named Holden.

Two possible references:

Holden Caulfield from _The Catcher in the Rye_.
"The origin of the name 'Holden Caulfield' has been speculated for many years. Many believe that Salinger chose this name as a hint toward what Holden was experiencing during the course of this novel. 'Holden' was supposedly 'hold on'. As for 'Caulfield' - a caul is defined as '(Latin: Caput galeatum, literally, 'head helmet') is a thin, filmy membrane, the remnants of the amniotic sac, that covers or partly covers the newborn mammal immediately after birth'. Therefore, the name basically means 'holding on to child hood' which is exactly what Holden discovers he is doing."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden_Caulfield

Holden, a character from "Blade Runner" (taken from Philip K. Dick's novel _Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?_). The novel involves six Nexus-6 replicants. A possible reference to the Oceanic 6? Animals also are important in the story.

tdciago said...

Another note on Holden Caulfield: he has a brother named Vincent. (This character is also known as D.B.)

Jake Chambers said...

The Christiane isn't Desmonds boat... :roll: Libby gave Desmond her husband's boat, so it's called ELISABETH.
As for the unread mail... I think it's a bug. When the game just started, I had it telling me there is an unread mail all the time while there wasn't.
And it really doesn't sound like Tracey is Sam's sister...

xTiffanyTerror said...

Jake - Well obviously none of us knows for sure the relationship between Sam and Tracey yet. I picked up a few things in the message that in my opinion made it sound that way. When he says "You've got all the patience" it seemed kind of like that convo you have with family like "you got the brains etc" and I feel like he has known her for a long time by him referring to her always being better at researching than him. As I said, just a hunch.

Jake Chambers said...

That could even refer to someone who worked together, doesn't need to be ANYTHING. I mean, I just don't like it when people jump to such conclusions over so little information we've got...

Save_The_Hobbit said...

Jake- Dude, they're called "guesses". Chill out.

nickelback100 said...

Jake if you don't wonna speculate fine but what does that have to do with what others think,thats the whole point of this stuff,can't come to a section like this and criticize people for their opinion

Jake Chambers said...

Hey all, chill yourselves. I never criticise anyone because of the opinion or the speculation itself - sometimes people just make too big connections out of nowhere, and that's MY opinion, to which, by you, I have a right to, and I can express it.
And if I didn't wanna speculate, then I wouldn't be here in the first place, right?
As for Christiane I... I'm bummed out it turns out not to be Naomi's boat as I hoped... but maybe we'll find out more about the Black Rock, or the Black Rock plays a greater role in the show (I still hope that Richard came on it...).

Gordon said...

What does it mean?? 'r'??? or Got Holden...pls I am not American...

Jake Chambers said...

The r stands for "are". "Shipwrecks 'r' us" is just a reference to a large toy-store-chain - "Toys 'r' us" which has big stores all over the world.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toys_r_us

It doesn't mean anything special, probably, just a word game. :)

Gordon said...

And what does it mean Give Holden a pat for me??? What is Holden???

Jake Chambers said...

Well, Holden is not a what, but obviously a WHO :) It's usually a male name, and it could be her dog, her cat, or her son, husband, brother... but "pat" means to...umh... hit somebody lightly, like giving somebody a pat on the shoulder to comfort them when they're sad or something?
So he is telling her to hit that Holden-person lightly as a hello from him. I hope I wasn't too confusing. :D

xTiffanyTerror said...

Jake - I appreciate your feedback and I understand your point that people analyze everything. However, I think that is how people find the things they do find. You have to look at everything to figure out whats important in my opinion, and I think thats what most of us are here for.

My first thoughts on Holden was that it/he was either a dog or a baby. I kind of thought baby because you pat babies as well. Either would make sense at this point.

Jake Chambers said...

If you ask me, Holden is insignificant.
And sorry if I sounded harsh, it's just that some people try obsessively to see something where it clearly isn't and forget that the show is still being created by human beings, who, like all of us, are limited and tend to make mistakes. :D
