LOST ARG - Find 815 - DarkUFO

Update - 6:25 GMT

It seems this isn't the real OMF42, but a faker who mislead us all. Thanks to Franech Johilan and ChristyG for letting us know in the comments. I still think it was quite interesting, though, and kept us occupied for the weekend.
yall this guy was a fake. i was just in the live chat and he came on and said that he needed to clear the air and admitted to posting all of this last night. he said he was doing it just to prove a point that anyone can get on as OurMutualFriend42 and post whatever they want. he said that he was just a lost fan from iowa, thats all, and you can't believe anyone claiming to be OMF.

Thanks to torched for the heads up on what went down in the chat last night.
It seems OurMutualFriend42 is giving us more and more clues, hopefully Dark can confirm that this is the real user and not a faker.

Here is what went down in the chat last night:

Comments from OMF42:
""Patience Reechoed Fly" a Jessup there was found" = anagram for "the free encyclopedia" leads to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_K._Jessup
"DE-173 holds more answers than you think" = leads to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Eldridge_%28DE-173%29
"3→3→64→2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham%27s_number
"Talbot has the varo" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remedios_Varo & http://serandipity.50megs.com/inform.html this leads to the last comment
"Two varos, one paint, one print, one truth" = see .pdf called varo-jessup.pdf
"Truth was lost in '59" = jessup commits suicide and dies in 1959
"I leave for the last time. Those after me are but clever fake. Find Talbot's copy." = Talbot has a varo edition of "The Case for the UFO: Varo Ed" and we need to find it!

Comments from poster FINDER: simple "first letter from every group is the next letter" riddle
"LDM/RE - OI/EDT - SAWLMI - T.IEAC - PCKCG - EOITN" = http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/electromagnetic
"MENNN - ALEST - XITT - WEEE - EBRI - LE.N - LDED - BIIO" = "maxwell believed in ether. einstein dont" leads to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorentz_ether_theory & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aether_theories
"LIE - ONF - OTO - KHG" = Look in the Fog
