Introduction to Find 815

"For Sam Thomas, times have never been so tough. His partner, Sonya, was a flight attendant aboard missing Oceanic Flight 815. Sam, a talented IT technician for Oceanic Airlines, is determined to find out what happened. But Oceanic would rather be ‘flying again’. They have abandoned the official search for Flight 815. Sam is distraught, afraid he will never have answers. But then he receives a strange email... Sam has followed the mysterious message from the Maxwell Group to Jakarta and has located the Christiane I. It is just about to embark on an expedition to an undisclosed location. But getting on board might not be as easy as Sam thinks... Sam's desire to leave the Christiane I at the next port comes across an unexpected obstacle, leaving him curious about the identity of Talbot’s employers. Sam's attempt to outwit Talbot and pinpoint the exact position of the coordinates brings unexpected results. Sam's determination to reach the mysterious coordinates risks the lives of all aboard the Christiane I. Will Sam find answers? Or has he made a life threatening mistake? "

Welcome to the new section of the site which will attempt to keep track of the new Lost ARG - Find 815. If you would like to join the Find 815 team, please feel free to email me and I'll get you hooked up.

Quickstart Guide
Check out Lostpedia's Find 815 page here as it provides an excellent recap of everything that has gone on to date.

In the site: http://www.findoutpedia.com/sundastories.html, there is a name appearing in the image of the non-loaded pictures: Image:British_Submarine_HMS_M2. On google, you then find that: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:British_Submarine_HMS_M2,_2.jpg

elo said...

Also, in chapter one, with the Maxel group mail, when you pass over the maxel group link, you can hear a message. I was not able to distinguish what it says. There is one moment when the music stops, at that moment you can record the message.

elo said...

In the sequence with the radio, after the moment when the image is frozen on the radio, once you have clicked on the radio, and before the comment start, you can hear an hidden message on the radio. Increase speed by 2 and you hear "It is the boat"

elo said...

Last thing, on http://www.slaveshipsearch.com/, the nale of the image is http://www.find815.com/sss/02website_baclkrock_1_moM9R9OMKcSKChhe0CmK.jpg, which is a very weird name. First, they spelled black rock badly (baclkrock), that could be just a typo. But what about the rest of the name, why call an image: 02website_baclkrock_1_moM9R9OMKcSKChhe0CmK

juliet said...

Sorry if this was already discovered, but the Talbot guy on the boat (the one from shady money) has the same name as the lady that Locke's fater was conning into marriage when he pushed Locke out the window. There was the allusion that Cooper (Locke's dad) killed Ms. Talbot's son, Peter. Coincidence?
Also, How did Tracey know to look up Talbot? Sam never mentioned him any his e-mails to Tracey.

Thanks Juliet. Here is the post regarding that info:

Lol, the same woman greeting Ben a long time ago when he came to the island is in the oceanic video.

Does it look like there's more writing in the ring box on Sam's desk? Is it just the weird overlay? Can someone with skills enhance it please?!
Namaste!

kessler27 said...

Whether this is dumb or not...

Regarding the Oceanic commercial on TV (I'd have to see the commercial again to confirm) I noticed last night when I saw it again, that there was some interference in the writing when they showed the URL for Oceanic Air at the end. If this is the case, it's new (I recorded the ad when I first saw it and there was no interference). I will watch for it again tonight on Sci-Fi, where I see them nightly.
I'm sure it will read find815.com in the end like everything else.

Cheyne Walk
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Cheyne Walk (pronounced Chain-ee) is an historic street in Chelsea, a bit of picturesque old London. Most of the houses were built in the early eighteenth century. Before the construction in the nineteenth century of the busy Embankment, which now runs in front of it, the houses fronted the River Thames.

Today, Cheyne Walk forms part of the A3212 and A3220 trunk roads; it extends eastwards from the southern end of Finborough Road past the Battersea and Albert Bridges, after which the A3212 becomes the Chelsea Embankment. It marks the boundary of the extended London Congestion Charge Zone.

East of the Walk is the Chelsea Physic Garden with its cedars.

hi dark, just sent u email rE: maxwell group website "temporarily down"

guys if u try and use a username and password, it tells u the site is down to first of february

Xander said...

anyone notice the disappearance of a "french sailor" in 1973 - refer to sunda stories.

Can this be Rousseau?

modernman said...

like that since day 1..xander..

MikeNY said...

This is cool, but I'm not 100% sure that no one has posted about it yet.

-11.1784, from the email, and 112.5, which is the exact center of the shift in the compass, together give the coordinates:

112.5 E, 11.1784 S

It's nice because it's just plugging in the two numbers -- and yes, it is in or near the trench.

(S replaces the minus sign to indicate south; in case you're wondering, 112.5 W puts the location nearer to the Americas and way beyond Fiji)

sawyerschick said...

There seems to be a map or writing of sorts in the background of the screenshot of Talbot's room. Has anyone clever managed to have a good look at it yet?

Cobines said...

There are coordinates on the map in Talbot room. They are something like:
126.xxxx
-11.768 (i first thought it was 11.1784 from the email)

This gives a location somewhere NE of Australia but I don't have a good map.

StijnV said...

Hi Everyone,

In the last email of the unknown sender there are some letters with a lower opacity. If you put those numbers together you get -11.1784 Anybody seen this yet? I typed it in on google maps and i found only a location somewhere in the south atlantic ocean on the left side of africa. Would this be any clue? I really don't get it because all the time all clues go about the sunda trench?

Look at this link for a screenshot of google maps with this typed in!:
http://www.buzz.nl/__userupload/mp3upload/googlemaps.JPG

Let me know!

StijnV said...

If anyone should find this message, please get word I'm alive and stranded on an island somewhere in the South Pacific. Please send help soon. Things are bad. And they're getting worse...

Sally

I survived a horrific plane crash and am stranded on an island somewhere Northeast of Australia and Southwest of Hawaii. In the event that I am never found, please forward word of my fate to my parents.

THIS IS BENEATH TEXT ON THE WWW.OCEANIC-AIR.COM SITE

A few corrections to the newspaper translation:

"Research of flight 815"
should read:

"search for flight 815"

"which we lost the trace between Sydney"
should read:

"of which trace was lost between Sydney..."

"of which a big operation of research intro"
should read:

"of which a vague search operation"

feddawg said...

We broke the riddle from ourmutualfriend42. The skulls translate into www.baliholidayfun.com. this website is hosted on the find815 servers so it is part of the game. replying to the email address on the site you recieve an auto reply msg from Mr OLE in the same manner of the original email with the Maxwell Group address. In the subject section is amuses mr ole, which is an anagram for Samuel Morse. Credit to will, blkuefrog4, and me (user name me) for this stuff.

and that's as far as I could get. Glad to be of help.

Vanessa said...

Hey guys,

There's a new email and website where Sam is trying to find out info about Maxwell

Vanessa said...

Check out James Clerk Maxwell, pioneer of electromagnetism!!!

Vanessa said...

Wow!

You have to check out this site:

http://www.clerkmaxwellfoundation.org/

Kessler27 said...

James Clerk Maxwell is related (not by blood) to Michael Faraday because Maxwell took on Faraday's work on electromagnetism.
A connection to Daniel Faraday?... cool!

Will said...

The new email from Tracey indicates that the equipment problems from last night may have been caused by a strong electromagnetic charge. Seems like a good clue as to when this game is taking place in relation to events on the Island.

Vanessa said...

There's also a new vm from Sean Dowling

Vanessa said...

Yeah, that's what I thought too when I saw Faraday ;)

Sawyers said...

sounds like a hatch implosion to me ;) does that jibe with the timeline?

Taíka said...

I thing it's too much of a coincidence...and u???

Stegosaurus...asteroid 9880

Sonja...(same as sonya)...asteroid 1293

Klotho...asteroid 97

Persephone (Rachel Blake)..asteroid 399

Plus: There's a theory, a very important one, that says the dinosaurs became extinct after a collision of an asteroid with earth.

What do u think??? Asteroid can be a part of the Lost enigma?

Thanks

It seems someoe figure out the password on the chat.
The braile code is a mirror image:

This password changes the message from "invalid password" to "Image not in GZIP format". SO we may be looking at the wrong image.

I received the same error message with other code...
But I'll try your suggestion. :)

stefano said...

has anybody tried to overlay other basic colors to the red frame of the video? There is something regarding James Maxwell (hidden in another frame of the video)that could be interesting: His "Optical studies occupied much of Maxwell's time in 1847. At Glenlair he experimented with Newton's rings, a chromatic effect produced by pressing lenses together, and studied the color variations of soap bubbles. In the spring of that year his uncle took him to see a demonstration of a "polarizing prism," and he engaged in observing the effects of polarized light by means of specimens of Iceland spar. A paper read to the Edinburgh Royal Society in 1850, "On the Equilibrium of Elastic Solids," was the outcome of these studies. There Maxwell described strains set up in elastic substances such as gelatin and compared his experimental results which had been optically obtained with his newly derived theory of such equilibrium. This work was written in Maxwell's third, and last, year at the University of Edinburgh; he had enrolled in 1847." http://www.answers.com/topic/james-clerk-maxwell?cat=technology
Maybe there's some key hidden in that frame

Hulk88

stefano said...

I found a better description of his experiment in James Maxwell's page on italian wikipedia: "I contributi di Maxwell all'ottica e alla percezione del colore furono rilevanti. Maxwell scoprì infatti che la fotografia a colori poteva essere realizzata sovrapponendo filtri rossi, verdi e blu. Fece fotografare tre volte un tartan scozzese mettendo sopra l'obbiettivo tre filtri di diverso colore. Le tre immagini sono state sviluppate e proiettate su uno schermo con tre proiettori differenti. Una volta messe a fuoco le tre immagini su di uno stesso punto ne è scaturita un' immagine a colori, la prima di tutta la storia." It is written, more or less, that He managed to create the first coloured image ever, projecting three images of the same thing in the same point with three different sources and three different colours: red, green and blue.
Maybe, something we can't see in red could be seen with the others.

I've been with LOST from the beginning but until now never knew there was so much more to get "lost" in.
Chapter 3..disappointed that when I go to talbots room it is very dark and I can't click on the case but I have noticed the words faintly, like an overlay just above and to the right of his computer..."DEPTH in M" all I can see. Also, in the video for the seasons clues there is a shadow on the cabin door..looking closely you can't miss the image of Sonya I think...or are my eyes bad?

last night at midnight a new post by Nkrptr went up at abc.com find815 message board. It gave only the following :
http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?n0nsa

Dario said...

Following the link posted here on findu.com with the coordinates found on the email message with the numbers, you'll see a "ship point" called N0NSA, after a little googling i found this:

http://aprs.fi/info/N0NSA

that actually seems to be the APRS-IS station on the Christiane I, so if this is right the ship is real and really navigating near the Christmas island. Seems so weird i can't explain... but that's it...

I don't know anything about APRS-IS so any help or comments would be apreciated...

Dario said...

Oh god... look at this:

http://aprs.fi/?c=beacon&call=N0NSA

u see the numbers ??

ali said...

Interesting stuff from people over at the 815 forum- just thought people over here should see it too. There is apparently a boat sending signals in the same vicinity as the Christiane I here is the map http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?n0nsa
and here is the website that shows the messages it is sending. http://aprs.fi/info/N0NSA
Just enter NONSA in the name and look at the numbers!
http://aprs.fi/?c=beacon&call=N0NSA

My code that got me through was "KOAM5"
Which then plays a confrontation with Sam and Talbot.
Sam tells him Maxwell sent him, Talbot says "you really dont know who your dealing with"

ObscureAllure8 said...

I'm confused. Is the voicemail from Sean Dowling regarding flight miles new? I don't see it on the blog anywhere.

cenunez said...

Hi,

I've recently joined in the search and wanted to point out that several of the artifacts on the ship are from the Solomon Islands.

lostlove said...

Is the grammatical error in the most recent email from Sam an editing error, or a clue? "now I'm no longer at Oceanic." Rather than "now THAT I'm no longer at Oceanic."

J. G. said...

ABOUT THE NUMBERS ON THE SUNDA TRENCH HOME PAGE...

If the added numbers are equal to the total of a/6, b/6, c/6, d/6, e/6, f/6...

Then:
A = 4140
B = 3744
c = 3780
d = 3924
e = 3924
f = 4104

That's because the numbers supra when divided for 6 are equal to the added numbers in the column...

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but under Sun's picture in Sam's blackbook there are very faint numbers

SunSpot said...

The background behind the first video (briefly before the first chapt 4 video plays) shows some interesting figures in several places. Looks like coords, some equations, a picture of Sonya. I put up a screenshot in my flicker, but you may wanna take your own for a higher res look. http://www.flickr.com/photos/22743506@N03/
Look at upper right, bottom center, and middle. Dunno if it means anything... havent seen anyone else talk about it.

lostlove said...

Bryan- Yes people have noticied the Polaroid numbers, but they remain a mystery. Perhaps they are related to the rows and columns on the SUNda trench email.
Ask in the chat room-perhaps there is help there.

basshops said...

I noticed the numbers aswell so looked I through the rest of the manifest. have you noticed that kate, james, jack, hugo and I think locke have diferent colored eyes.

also sonyas picture appears in color and in black and white right before the new clue hunt video in the back round pinned to the wall

Rayx2 said...

Hey.
I would love to join.
I found out a few things I would like to share.

faullin said...

I just rewatched S313 (The Man from Tallahassee) and realized a possible connection: the young man who comes to Locke's door in flashback asking for help b/c his mother is being scammed by Locke's dad introdcues himself PETER TALBOT. And, the mysterious backer of the salvage boat in the find815 ARG is named OSCAR TALBOT! Seems too coincidental to me. Thnaks for a fabulous and comprehensive site - keep up the great work!

lostlove said...

I didn't see the picture of Soyna before the new clue hunt. Is it in Sam's video, or in the still before you begin the hunt?

Rayx2- Please share!!!

Does anyone know where this is all leading?? Oh well, it'll be fun getting there.

Rayx2 said...

Okay... I'm sure it's nothing (just my imagination, probably), but I looked closely at the email from the Unknown with all the letters, and I saw that there are 6 letters that are a bit smaller than the rest (AABCFC - you can see it here: http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/6308/datemailct3.png).
Now, basing this on the same way in last emails people here had managed to solve, those letters form the numbers: 112363. Could this be a date: 11/23/63?
Is this even related?

lostlove said...

I saw those letters too, but can't seem to figure them out. I was thinking they were related to the rows and colums on the Sunda email because there are 6 rows and 6 columns and there are 6 lower case
letters in the email. The letters I got are aabbcfc. Could be a date ???

Ghoun said...

I think i might have found something.
In the "hack the chart plotter" part, there is the same DEPTHS written down to the right of the screen, as is in the chapter 4 clue hunt below the first aid kit. It says "DEPTHS in M..". In the upper right corner there is something written down, which starts with a capital C and below that theres something in a circle which looks like 100km. Dont know if it is anything useful at all but i thought i might let you know.

Ghoun said...

Furthermore, there is a picture of a nautilus (dont know exactly how its called in english)to the far right in the chapter 4 clue hunt part. Maybe a clue about depth, as these creatures live in pretty deep waters. But maybe its a clue for something else, like that nautilus ship.

Ghoun said...

I just found out that the shell of such a nautilus is growing logarithmicly, perfectly proportional . Maybe thats a clue for us how to measure the numbers in the sunda trench page.

lostlove said...

Yes. Depth could be significant as the poem says to add divide and MEASURE. Is it my imagination or are the #'s on Sun's photo fading?

Big Red said...

Hey y'all, has anyone else ever noticed that "N" in the beginning of the FIND815.com page? It's not only the first letter to appear, but it's also the only one that goes beyond the tops and bottoms of the other letters. It definitely looks out of place, like it could be rotated and could be a letter "Z". I have no idea what it would mean, but everytime I login I see it and think something has to be up. It wouldn't be the only letter that's not in that specific font or size for no reason, though. Sorry if this has been brought up before, I was lazy and didn't read all 250+ posts in this section.

Blessey said...

I didn't see anyone finding this.
On the right door in the chapter 4 clue hunt, there is the picture of a face.

AHanso said...

Has anyone noticed that the the E-Mail Sam sent Tracy entitle Yes another favor...please! is now missing from the sent mail? Now the E-Mail she answers him doesn't make sense if you go back and read them

Veruca said...

Probs nothing but I noticed that on the Maxwell group page there seems to be a faint greenish swirl beneath the compass logo. Looks at lot like the green aurora swirl on the Aurora Australis page.

Also, I'm sure someone has seen this, but also on the MaxGroup page,in addition to the 75 in place of the 60 on compass, West and East are flipped. Feels a lot like the compass from the first Lost ARG.

Hey everyone,

I have something for all of you. I haven't seen it in any of the blogs,so here it goes: If you go to www.thehansofoundation.org and right-click on Alvar Hanso's letter
then scroll down to play and click on it you will hear a message from Mittlewerk saying,"You have taken the battle,but that's all it was a battle. Humanity needs me now more than ever. I have the virus, I have the world and I will not fail." Maybe some can add more insight to this message.

1Miletogo said...

So, I don't know if this has been mentioned, and sorry if it has. I was rewatching D.O.C. last night (getting caught up before Thursday:) and I had a holy crap moment.

Sun said to Jin over the phone "I love you madly."

At the end of the episode in flashback: Sun says Jin, I love you. Jin says Madly? and Sun says Madly.

I don't know if this has anything to do with Sonya saying the same thing....

Rayx2 said...

So right... the weirdest thing just happened to me while I tried to enter the find815.com site... the loading compass in the intro didn't move and instead of showing the loading percents of the website, it showed the numbers: 975486. Now, I could be just paranoid, but I still wanted to share this with you in case...well, just in case. There's 10000% that it's just an error of the page while it tried to load, because this can't happen just to me, right? Other people should see it too if it had a meaning. But anyway, I managed to capture it, so you can look at it here: http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/6244/975486ci8.png

If this happens to you too, than please say so, because then it could really mean something...

Hi all - I googled the allied copenhagen marine merchants and found this website:
http://alliedcopenhagenmarinemerchants.com/index.htm

You need an access code and password to enter, but you can view the ships info.

Don't know what the access code/password is... anyone?

Tippy said...

Hi all - I googled the allied copenhagen marine merchants name from one of Sam's emails from Tracey R. and found this website:

http://alliedcopenhagenmarinemerchants.com/index.htm

You need an access code and password to enter but can search ships info without it.

Angelc1828 said...

the new update today is 4 emails; 1 to Tracey, 1 from Austral Air, 1 to austral Air, and unknown sender one. The unknown sender one is simple: 411151057 that's it.
Also there's a voice mail from Tracey checking up on Sam and a website about weather in the Sunda Trench.

Hey, I dunno if u already did, but check www.oceanicairlines.com
There's some strange codes and the title of the page is 'Possibility', maybe it´s nothing, maybe it is.
Hope it helps

PopeJPMcD said...

Now that the game is almost over I have to ask.... what it the point of the manifest? They made a lot of little changes to it in the beginning, and then you never have to touch it during the game? Seems like a lot of work just to create "ambiance." Or did I miss something about it?

fleaguy2002 said...

Does anyone see a map superimposed over the entire shot of Sam's desk?
I'm unable to get head or tails of what it shows...but it's there.
This is my first post...so if it's been mentioned before I apoligize

fleaguy2002 said...

THE MANIFEST..there must be more to it!

I searched and didn't find anything pertaining to the following..

When I zoom in three times to the different charecters photos, only Sayid, Claire, and John's (who by the way has a green and blue eye) picture remain. If I zoom in three times to the pictures of Sawyer, Kate, Hugo,Jack, Sun, and Jin...their picture dissapears...and all that is left on the screen is the paper-clip. It must be that way for a reason, especially this late in the game. What can it mean? If this has been dicussed before, I apologize. Any ideas?

fleaguy2002 said...

Manifest pictures...
it must be a glitch in my adobe player...when I went back and clicked Sun's picture three times..her picture disappeared again...however when I scrolled to the side of the manifest book and scrolled back to the picture...her picture was now there! Weird! huh?
sorry...my post was so unwarrented!

Sawyers said...

to fleaguy....about the different colored eyes...can't source it anymore, but I remember an interview with Terry Quinn during season one, where he mentioned having to wear contacts to make his eyes different colors repeatedly. At the time, the actor didn't appear to know any significance for the eye color change.

Just thought you might find that interesting ;)

Hey all - I tried this website http://oceanicworldairlines.com/2008/

a Dharma logo appeared with a man's face in the middle for split second then the Oceanic World Air flight schedule displayed. with flights starting today out of LAX, SYD, ODO, BLD, MIA. Flight 755 out of LAX goes to ??? - interesting!

There is a bug that seems to be crawling all over the flight schedule. When I clicked on it, it took me to http://oceanicworldairlines.com/2008/log.jpg

Any comments on what this means?

Tippy said...

I tried to email the address on the flight schedule and got the following error message back:

nice find tippy, I noticed that the copyright in the lower right was 2009. Is this a fan site? The whois shows a Douglas Brown as the registered owner of the site. If you click on flight 755 with a destionaion of a question mark flight you will see a picture of a freighter. HMMM... http://alliedcopenhagenmarinemerchants.com/helgusapollonius.jpg

Clicking on the flight numbers bring up a bunch of other screens too, great find.

beth said...

I've found out something re: the Maxwell pdf. Go to page 37. The paragraph with a check beside it says: "The facts of electromagnetism are so complicated and various, that the explanation of any number of them by several different hypotheses must be interesting, not only to physicists, but to all who desire to understand how much evidence the explanation of phenomena lends to the credibility of a theory, or how far WE OUGHT TO REGARD A COINCIDENCE in the mathematical expression of two sets of phenomena as an indication that these phenomena are of the same kind. WE KNOW THAT PARTIAL COINCIDENCES OF THIS KIND HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED; and the fact they they are only partial is proved by the divergance of the laws of the two acts of phenomena in other respects. We may chance to find, in higher parts of physics, instances of more complete coincidence, which may require much investigation to detect their ultimate divergence.

(caps are mine)

I think this is a hint by the LOST guys of how everyone is interconnected on the island, and that the coincidences that link them all have something to do with the circumstances of the island. In reading a chunk of this, I find little relevant other than a hint that maybe the phenomena of the island is dealing with electromagnetism...but I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that the inspiration for the coincidences came from this little paragraph.

Sunshine said...

I was looking into yesterdays clues "southfield" and "queens college" and the only connection between the two I found was that they are both in London. However, there are 2 alumni of queens college that stood out to me. One of them is Henry James (who was actually President of Queens College), who according to Spolodaface's comment in here previously lived on Cheyne Walk at the end of his life. Also, John Mitchell was an alumni. He was famous for his work with magnetism, electricity and black holes. Here is a link to info about him at Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Michell

John said...

Hi, I am from Germany.Please forgive me my bad English.

I've found a yellow box around the Story so far buttton, when i just completed all things in the game ?

Does this soemthing mean i am confused ?

Will said...

So what about the Maxwell group password?

My most likely incorrect guess would be:
U: O_Talbot
P: 411151057

Danielxv said...

Hi, I am from Brazil. Sry for my bad English.


@John

This yellow box is a "utilitari" of the flash, it is for indicating where it has a "button".

So...http://www.the-maxwell-group.com/ is still down

RealDrom said...

Thank you guys, really thanks for all.

you work was great and usefull to play the game correctly...

just congratulations, thanks again and good bye.

thejajunker said...

Umm so is Sam's story not finished cause he was definitely involved in that new Oceanic Commercial....Screencaps and theories anyone?

jraehol said...

Saw the commercial during Eli Stone...it was the same Oceanic Air ad, but Sam interrupted saying "we found it" with underwater images. Also, the flight attendants mentioned a golden ticket.

thejajunker said...

man I thought I was gonna get a chance to go to the Island and meet the lovely Kate... Oh well, I'll keep my hopes up for the next ARG.

there is an update to the maxwell site!

A new link was added at http://www.the-maxwell-group.com

Its a podcast that said: "Oscar Talbot on a Deep Sea Discovery"
"His interview explores the accidental discovery by Sam Thomas of Oceanic flight 815. Here he explains the events leading up to the discovery, its implications, and the course of future action"

I asumed is the complete audio scrambled on video diary º5, but I can't open the player on the page. Any one???

This is the url of the link:

Just did a quick search on Clerk Maxwell and came up with the ClerkMaxwellFoundation.org, I will do some more poking around but I found this picture I found there interesting: http://www.clerkmaxwellfoundation.org/html/picture_viewer_11.html

Julio Antonio said...

OK...yesterday I watched Lost and was intrigued by the Vantage point commercial and that they mentioned "exclusive Lost material". I noticed that in the commercial, in the LCD screen of the videocamera there was a number 000-815, and then the commerical ended with a website (abc.com/solvethepuzzle).

Yesterday night, it redirect directly to Lost Connections and I entered in the Vantage point website (http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/vantagepoint/mosaic/index.php)the coordinates (000-815). All I got was a Hurley video.

Today I did the same (entered abc.com/solvethepuzzle)and now there is a welcome window (for 30 seconds) telling you to go to the Vantage Point website. Now there is a different video when entering the coordinates. Seems a summary from yesterday's episode (I have no audio on this computer).

ladyjendifi said...

Hey-
Does anyone know what this youtube video is all about?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8d6iOgACnk

Thanks!

Nicoco63 said...

Hi from France !

Does someone know where i can find all the find 815 videos in HQ ?
Or can someone post it here ?
(it misses especially chapter 4 activity, chapter 5 first activity and chapter 2, 4,and 5 video diary in HQ)

Thanks !

mdinkle1 said...

Just something I noticed while watching TTLG Wednesday night...

Ben mentioned that in 'The Purge', 40 people died that day. In the chapter 2 game, it says that 40 crew members were on the Black Rock. Any connection, or just a coincidence?

Julio Antonio said...

I THINK I have something important.
First podcast 2008.
Go to http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/vantagepoint/mosaic/index.php

Enter 000-815 on the upper right hand area ("enter coordinates").

Watch the Lost scene (when Jack shoots at Locke), then click in the right arrows to see the podcast.

I don't know, but this link may work. It worked for me:

rrhilsab said...

Did anyone notice during oceanic commerical last night, the 3-4 frames that came after the initial showing of the wreckage of flight 815. I believe they had a gold tint and had ROV 2 in the corner and was wondering if these were shots from inside the wreckage. Can anyone get screenshots of that?

the4gottenabyss said...

I have created a google doc with all the names numbers from Talbot's phone in order, it can be edited if we find any information on the names:

ok, where to start... well I found this site
http://www.dharmaindustries.com/
and couldnt tell if it was IG or OOG (in game or out of game) and even got a few more sites off the vantage point thing.... still no luck with TMG login i dunno... I feel were missing something...

Tippy said...

I think the http://www.dharmaindustries.com/ website is a fan site. It comes from Sweden. Plus I tried like every login in the book and no success.

Kopa said...

The Maxwell Group site had been updated! I post an article on spoilertv-tesground.

Julio Antonio said...

I just listen to the audio from Talbot's interview. It was quite clear to me that Sam was manipulated. He was sort of a scapegoat, an unwilling collaborator to Maxwell Group's goal: Close the 815 incident.

Sam was a vigorous opponent of stopping the 815 search, which as you may imagine, has been very costly. Maxwell group is losing money and has lost credibility while attempting to abort the search without closure. How can they re-establish travel routes without seem irresponsible?

They manipulated him to believe 815 was found. If Sam, the spearhead and public voice of the "Find 815" movement is convinced 815 was found, the movement is over.

Oceanic and the relatives has it's closure and everyone is OK to move on and embrace again Oceanic as a responsible company. I won't be surprised if in the future we learn that Maxwell is a major shareholder for Oceanic.

By Talbot telling Sam, these coordinates are not important, supported Sam's curiosity. He even told Sam "You don't know what you are into" been truthful to him, but at the same time misleading him.

It was never a "Black Rock expedition", but a "mock Find 815" expedition from the get go.
Very easy for Oceanic to replicate the 815 markers in another plane. They own dozens of similar planes. Choosing Sunda Trench, they cleverly choose a feasible crash site, with the added bonus of a depth that negates access inside the plane. What you see is what you get. Impossible for further exploration and verification.

In other words: Talbot and The Maxwell group pulled a "Ben Linus" on Sam. They used the classic "keep your friends close, but your enemies closer" approach, making thier enemy (Sam) revindicate them.

Hi, I was listening to the Talbot interview in the UCLA radio website and noticed that there is an image of a diver next to the description, when you zoom it, numbers can be seen in the things that the diver is holding. It says "TXF4" or "TXFY".

http://www.space.gc.ca/asc/img/neemo9-rov2.jpg

1Miletogo said...

The photo is on the Canadian space Agency web site. Hmm...

knives2gunfights said...

Okay, so now that the game is largely over, what was the significance of the numbers (add and divide) from the Sunda Trench website on Sam's browser, as well as the Whitman poem? Did I miss something, or are those loose ends?

TB2of4 said...

There is a problem with Chp 3 Clue Hunt on the abc site to find Clue for 4th season AND for the last activity in Chapter 5 for Finding Black Rock. If you have been able to do either of these, please blig back. These 2 things are all I have left and I have leard others say that Chp 3 is happening to others but what about Chp 5 last activity? Thanks and frustrated.

Geej said...

@julio antonio :
I think you are on something here...
What if Talbot is in fact... Ben's spy in the world outside the island?
With his walkie-talkie before Sam moves the ROV... And Mikhail could not get all the life-files on everyone just from the Flame, huh?

If I was Ben, the first thing I would have done is to make sure someone finds the plane so no one asks questions about where it is.

Yeah, you definetely are on something, julio!

Jayro said...

Has anyone tried to Openstego the image of the diver/ROV accompanying the Talbot podcast on UCLA radio site? I'm on a Mac and can't get the program to work.
