OceanForecasts.com and Emails

UPDATE: Thanks to WeBB in the chat room who figured out that 411151057 = "All is lost" in 1337 speak. Good work WeBB!

There are some new emails and a new website in Sam's laptop.

was that message from tracey weird or what? I think she has the hots for Sam.

Semmellitis said...

Has anyone figured out, what the number in the email might be? A code for the maxwell group site perhaps???

angelc1828 said...

I think the numbers might be an alphanumeric code but i don't know where to find a cracker.

angelc1828 said...

when converting it straight from numbers to letters i got DAKEJEG. (A=1 B=2 and so on).

hurricanebtvs said...

tracey doesnt hang around, she sounds hot lol

Sam needs to stop looking for 815 and go get her.

angelc1828 said...

or DKOJEG

dhawk6708 said...

Depending on how you arrange the #'s to convert to alpha:

411151057 = DAAAEJ ? EG
4_1_11_5_10_5_7 = DAKEJEG
4_11_1_5_10_5_7 = DKAEJEG
4_11_15_10_5_7 = DKOJEG
4_1_1_15_10_5_7 = DAAOJEG

Shifting? Anagrams?

Andrew said...

do these number corespond to letters or numbers in the ocean forecasts website?

Addictedfan said...

Does the OceanForecast have anything to do with the real life Tsunami that occured on Dec.26,2004 on/near the Sundra Trench???

Torched said...

Anyone care to guess where the photo is from on the oceanforecast.com page or why the words "rough or very rough" are in bold.

Hurley_Girl said...

It's L337 for "ALL IS LOST".

Monk Satyr said...

using dkaejeg I get
confusingly, Jag Eked, and interestingly, Jade Keg.

And, yeah Hurley Girl, the most fun is of course All is LOST ;)

Not One Of You said...

If you try to open the website in a browser you're sent to an ad page.

Looks like maybe there's a typo in the address line, or this website isn't done yet.

Monk Satyr said...

yup not one of you, http://www.oceanforecasts.com/ is a go daddy parked page as of now (for me). Thanks for shaving me from double posting :)

N1teShift said...

I noticed when I took all the numbers from the oceanforecasts webpage I got this
24 6 8 9 4 5
z f h i d e or ZF Hide


I don't know if it is just a coincidence, or if ZF is someone's initials, I tried looking up but its hard to look up initials.

Monk Satyr said...

For DAAAEJEG - A Jade Age
For DAAOJEG - Jade Ago, A Jade Go, A Jag Doe, A Jag Ode

Liver said...

n1te, ZF=Zeke Freundlich? We got that email signed by Zeke Klotho Freundlich after emailing zkillen_t99@hotmail.com.

PitchforkJesus said...

I'm with Hurley Girl... leetspeak for ALL IS LOST
411 15 1057

Monk Satyr said...

n1te, 24=x not z (26)
so it makes - 'xfhide', other than the inelegant 'fx hide' I get nothing . But if I add a 1 for the word 'first' on the OF page (a stretch, i know) I get - 'fxhiade', which will give me 'head fix' 'ha fixed' 'fax hide' & 'if had ex', among others.
probably nothing, but...

An Evolution In Thought said...

I am questioning the numbers on the site. To me, if you take southernly has a negative, and gale as a positive, you get 24-6+8+9-4-5. Though, the wording makes me wonder if you aren't supposed to rearrange them as well. Dunno if I'm on the right track, but if you ask me that's sure some iffy wording for a weather forcast.

"Rough or very rough. Occasionally high"

Why does this remind me of someone I know?

DaveSidery said...

The 2004 Bixing Day Tsunami is a good point... remember how the Sunda Stories webpage originally listed the Tsunami as the last entry, but it was later removed ???

That could've been a timeline problem, which has me thinking the Christiane I is about to get itself smacked down big time...

notlost said...

i think the info on boxing day tsunami was removed because its bad taste to referance something so horrific in an internet game....

Nice, lol.

Rachel said...

To me, the forecast is saying, "We dunno what the hell the weather is going to be like."

lostlove said...

Does the wording of this latest web page seem very strange to anyone else? Are they completely iliterate or is this wording intentional?
Also, can anyone make sense of the lines and numbers faintly written on the page in the lower right hand corner??

lostlove said...

Actually it looks like 5 lines and 5 little bubble dots. Sorry I can't screen capture, I'll work on that.

NomadsHorizon said...

Anyone have any idea what city/harbor is depicted in the site's header?

ajkalost said...

I found a proper forecast on bbc and it looks a lot like the one they put in the game.
See:

"Actually it looks like 5 lines and 5 little bubble dots. Sorry I can't screen capture, I'll work on that."

Those aren't part of the actual website image - they seem to be an overlay placed on top of the entire (actual) website (or on top of the laptop image), since they're also visible on every other in-game website that has a white background (white allowing the lines to be distinguishable) as well as the emails - and when both laptop windows are "minimized".

The actual images used, in full size, are here (they've most likely been posted before, but at least I haven't noticed it):

If they work, you'll see that the numbers on the Sunda Trench page are part of the image, while the lines on (among others) the forecasts page aren't.
