The Damage

In a flurry of wishful thinking, I imagine a huge demographic overlap between bee fans and webmonkeys.

This blog is born.

You're reading this, so I'll assume you've already witnessed the damage over on my aunt's web site. That's how you got here, right? (Unless your last Google search included the terms "honey," "SOS" and "WTF".) Hmm... now I'm actually curious to see what that turns up.)

Okay, focus, Dana.

I've been wrestling with the site bug(s?) myself since late last week. I've exhausted every strategy I can think of: scoured my code, ran virus checks, did the whole spyware Spyhunter thing, installed all the browser updates, and then finally just wiped the site and rebuilt it from scratch. Nothing helped.

In fact, although I might just be hallucinating from too much maté, I would swear it's getting worse.

I'm posting all of the original pages below, so you can see what www.ilovebees.com looked like BEFORE it crossed over to the dark side.

After reading the source code for the pages, it is obvious this is a hoax and that the site owner or you or whomever have done those things to your own site...

OK, thanks for the mild amusement but ... really. For one thing, the .js is a giveaway since it resides in the same directory as the main html page.

CAPTAIN KEYES!!! All those messages are from the character of Captain Keyes from HALO!!! Just look at it... he talks about the stars. Captain keyes, if my memory serves me, was taught to look at the stars as a guide from his father, which is where he got the pipe from. He also has that flood in his mind "head full of sand." All the stuff about being "shipwrecked." Those are Keyes' memories being stolen by the thing in his head, the infection form. All the stuff about the spread of things and hemmorages, that's happening to Captain Keyes. It all adds up. My knowledge of the book is horrible, but this sounds just like captain keyes.

Look at this:

"totally different kind of memory all of a sudden, floating up like a bubble from deep water, then *pop* on the surface of my mind. All in black and white for some reason, faded out, or just time bleaching the past like it does, time is hard that way, if you-" this was said on the Ilovebees site, and it sounds like memories being stolen, just like how Keyes' memoiries were being stolen. It's all in the book: Halo the flood.

I think the site is trying to hint at the new race that will join the covenant. The trailer talks about how the Earth is in the way of the covenant. I think this new race has a "hive" and the words Phasmidia Elegans(type of worm) hint at their physical structure. I think the excerpts that allude to loneliness taken from Gulliver's travels and Shakespeare's The Tempest are hinting at "the monitor" from Halo 1. He is in an unknown planet.

It's actually Cortana/Durandal talking there :/ If anyone remembers, and the end of marathon, Durandal talks about how they know how to escape the end of the world, and they reappear as Cortana in Halo. It might be Captain Keyes, although all signs point to Cortana. Guess we'll have to wait for Halo 2.

you're right about that, we won't know until Halo 2 comes out.

Just remembered something important:

That was my nickname. That's what the rest of the crew called me when they didn't call me ... whatever my name was.

The Operator.

I wish I could remember their names."


it could be doctor halsey...

i also noticed that only DANA's pictures are all glitchy... at least when i looked at it... is it because she's interfering or whatevers? heh... just a guess..

The Dr. Hasley theory seems valid after I saw the statment by "Cortana" that said

"That was surprisingly easy. Pretty lax security around here, for all the talk. They will
be helplessly chasing me around their nodes for the next millenium at least. At least
there will be some joy in tormenting this other entity that seems quite "trapped" in
their excuse for a network. Although, for some reason, it does seem to have an obsessive
preoccupation with my mother. Strange."

If memory serves me correctly, Dr. Hasley is considered to be Cortana's "mother" or creator.

supposedly someone was saying that there was a date of August 24 that this site refers to... supposedly there is a playable version of Halo 2 at PAX hosted by Penny-arcade.com and its on the 28th and 29th... maybe its refering to when the playable demo will be available and approved for general consumption... It probably does have something to do with Cortana, tho as others have suggested.

That's right. And apparently the varrao mites look oddly similar to the flood. Anyways, just some interesting stuff. And that marathon.bungie stuff is messed up.

Blogger ladybeeisfake said...

keys is an enemy threat. He is a flood capable of destroying all of our security whith his mutated self and old memories.

10:47 AM  
Blogger PATPATPATTO said...

I said earlier that it might be keyes, and I think it is. The only thing that doesn't add up is the "keep it together girl," statement that some people say they saw on ILOVEBEES. I personally think that he might be referring to the pillar of autumn as he was crash landing it. It was yet another memory being stolen by the infection form. I asked about the sevens in her name because we all know how much bungie likes the number 7. They trow it in everywhere. I can't wait until that timer runs out, I think things will clear up a little bit then.

1:05 PM  
Blogger Sgt.Johnson(GH) said...

But I thought Keyes died when Halo was destroyed.

Maybe it is the Flood inside Sgt.Johnson, struggling within him or something. I don't know, just a thought.

Or maybe it's Dr.Hasely gone out of whack, after all, she did take off with Kelly.

Dana, are you aware that your shirts that are selling at cafe press have the emblem for halo 2 on the back?

Everyone, we all know that the timer ends on August 24th, I think it's possible that Halo 2 may come out on that date... before you start saying that I'm stupid, think about it... in the latest Frankie update they talk about doing fixes and beta testing. Do they really need 4 months to do that? Also, they already have an ESRB rating, they wouldn't be able to do that unless they had a near finished product. Think about it... the throttling thing could mean that they will announce it then or it will go gold, and metastasize means spread, that could be when the game gets delivered to retailers. The time between matastasize and the end of the counter is just long enough to deliver. I'd say that it could be about a demo or a content release too, but then why are there two things before that. The truth is that we really won't know anything for two days... and I really can't wait until then...

Bye the way... most of these ideas aren't mine, they come from the forum about this at bungie.net... if this stuff actually happens, they should get all the credit.

Not necessarily one of ours.

But at the same time, parts of me being moved around, emptied out. As if under general anaesthetic, dimly conscious, half-aware as the surgeon cuts off my feet and sews them onto my shoulders. She opens my head with a medical hammer and sand spills out.

so *pop*, and I'm...

playing on the beach, very young, making a castle out of sand. It's a good castle, I'm smart, I'm really smart and I'm good with my hands and the castle is beautiful but the tide is coming up, I'm making dikes and moats and outer walls, getting a little desperate here this castle means the world to me it's way better than my brother's, but the tide is rising and rising, the tide is always coming up and no matter how hard I try to save what I have made, sooner or later the spiders wash over it and melt it down I'm losing the memory already I can't see myself was I wearing a dress or overalls or ...? There's a boy on the beach next to me but a wave comes up foaming with spiders and takes away his face-

oh.

we're made of sand.

we're both made of sand.

uh-oh.

I will stand firm. I will hold my edges and remember. I can do this. I know how to remember things, even through drugs and torture. seek evade reveal resist. I will not dissolve.

MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY nd in about half an Hour the Boat was overset by a sudden Flurry from the North. What became of my Companions in the Boat, as well as of those who escaped on the Rock, or were left in the Vessel, I cannot tell; but conclude they were all lost.

lay down on the Grass, which was very short and soft, where I slept sounder than ever I remember to have done in my Life, and, as I reckoned, above Nine Hours; for when I awakened, it was just Day-light. I attempted to rise, but was not able to stir: For as I happen'd to lye on my Back, I found my Arms and Legs were strongly fastened on each Side to the Ground; and my Hair, which was long and thick, tied down in the same Manner. I likewise felt several slender Ligatures across my Body, from my Armpits to my Thighs.

Blogger For_the_sake_of_commenting said...

Okay, I've been in and out of this site and through the comments...yea, I've got that kind of time on my hands...and I'm at work *wink*...anyways, here's what I think:

Earlier in the posting process of this site an apparent friend to Aunt Margaret comments about Varroa Mites and comments about the mispelling on the site. She goes on and says, "I did some research on those things...very nasty. How goes her fight against the little beasties?" Having read this I decided that if this was just a huge treasure hunt from Bungie and Microsoft then why not try to crack it. I checked out these Varroa mites and one site (a serious site, not one related to this) describes them quite well and in the Halo world they sound an awful lot like the Flood. The site talks about how these mites have and can lead to the death of a great number of bees or bee colonies. The mites feed off of the blood of bees larvae and pupae. Meaning the Flood doesn't just use humans.
On Ilovebees.com I noticed the "Fable of the Bee" it tells an interesting story in and out of the Halo Realm. However, such a story leads me to think that the "bees" are metaphorically the Covenant. They wish to destroy humankind and such a power could only be granted through the vast power of Halo, which would inevitably lead to their death as well. Upon the destruction of the only known Halo they decided to attack earth in revenge and to pursue their objective head on.
Now, if the Flood is in fact referred to as the "varroa mites" then they would attach themselves to the "bees" and wait to lay their eggs (as the female Mite is said to do) until the oppotune time. Who's to say that no Covenant survived the first Halo? Perhaps, a ship escaped with a grunt or Elite or some kind of Covenant that was infected with a stowaway female flood parasite that was laying dormant until it saw fit to attack. It would wait until it was surrounded by more Covenant so when it "exploded" (you know the Flood enemy I'm talkin about) and its mites attacked and took over either a covenant ship.
This is where I have two branches of the story...yea, this is long I know and I'm sorry. If the Flood killed and took over a ship escaping Halo, then they could have infected one of the upcoming Prophets and gained intelligence and even forethought. They could indefinitely have a strong strategic advantage on Earth and the Covenant. They would know the Covenant's plans to attack Earth and would wait until both sides had hurt each other so badly that they would be overwhelmed by the unexpected Flood invasion/attack, and they would win without much of a fight. Which is where our story for the MC would lie...maybe.
The other way is about the same but if the Stoweaway Flood Parasite waited until the infected Covenant trooper came in close quarters with a Prophet or when it was deployed to Earth and attacked both races with the blind rage and unmerciful killing that we're all accustomed to the Flood having.
I just kind of went on all that. So, hey, there's my stab at a story line spoiler and the whole purpose of the site. The countdown clock...I hope that the comment earlier is right and they release the game unexpectingly early for either pre-orders or for everyone. Whatever happens, I know the Game will be awesome and I've got my 2 pre-order stubs sitting in my wallet right now. Have fun with the site guys and hope you enjoyed my ranting. If not, sorreh...just havin fun

Taken from http://www.cafeshops.com/ilovebees.12518390?zoom=yes#zoom

Look at the shopkeeper bio on the left hand side.

Could BEE's be an acronym? Notice the ' which shouldn't be there is your just saying bees.

Also there is

length: 120 meters

If you read her bio on the left hand side of this web site:

you will see it says this

"The end of the World is upon us! I wont be selling these items after Aug 24th due to the BEE's."
not to mention the giant halo pic on the back of the shirt

7 is the all mighty number for bungie, and it turns up alot of times throughout the site:

ladybee777 is her user name

Danas profile says - (She bought me my All-Asia air pass in exchange for 7 years of indentured tech support

Seven years ago I started making my own honey and selling it at the Farmer’s market.

I would not only say this is bungie related, but halo 2 related as well. there is no way the game will be released the 24th (there still in the beta phase). Either way, the countdown would appear to be more than a hoax (an extremely elaborate one).

Most of the crypic messages have been found on this iste already so theres no use me pasting them all here again. But look at this, it came from the source code:
---------------------------------------------------
var chinatime = new Date(2004,7,24,6,7,0);
(/SCRIPT)
(script language=Javascript1.2 src="countdowntochina.js")(/script)(BR)
Make your decisions accordingly.(BR)(BR)(/font)(/div)
(cript language="JavaScript")
--------------------------------------------------
NOTE: no html is allowed in posts so i had to change tags to ().

See that the name of the script for the countdown timer is "countdowntochina"

Is that something usefull or just a random name?

11:02 PM

Chinatime is a reference to the trip dana was going to go on before all the trouble started.

Blogger pikachu said...

hi all, i love this viral marketing tactic used by bungie its fun and amusing countdowntochina.js is the countdown to chinas release date of halo2.

'In 1 days, network throttling will erode.'
--completion of halo2
'In 15 days this medium will metastasize.'
--Halo 2 goes gold in china

this site, ilovebees.com is in NO WAY a real site about bees and everyone who is listed as Margaret or dana are fictious characters. ilovebees.com is hosted on rackspace.com which is used for HIGH BANDWIDTH. they knew this site would be hit by massive amounts of people.

this message will no doubt get deleted or edited soon i suspect by a bungie employee (who btw come here and post daily to keep the hype up)

this is yet another hype-producer much like the "cortana letters"

This was in the links page under fable of the bee.


The Fable of the Bee

The Queen of a hive of bees on Mount Hymettus rose up to
Olympus to make an offering of honey to almighty Zeus.
Zeus, delighted, swore that he would give her anything she
asked for.

"Wise and powerful is Almighty Zeus!" said the Queen Bee.
"Grant me, I pray you, a poison sting, so that when the humans
come to steal my honey, I may kill them."

Zeus was angry then, for he loved the race of men, but he could not break his promise. "You shall have your poison," he said, his brow like thunder. "But to use it will cost you your life. If you plunge your sting into the flesh of humankind, there it will stay, and you will die from the loss of it."

And the moral of the story is: evil wishes come home to roost.

Read the last line. Evil wishes come home to roost. Like the covenant and the flood coming to Earth?

Btw, I just started a blog site only to post on here.

Capt Keys Physical form did die, but his memories remain. The flood is called the flood for one main reason. They are one. They are many. They aquire their victims into their one self. Possibly millions of victims connected to form one being. Physically millions of separate beings, but all one system. Capt. Keys memories were aquired. As a part of those memories comes the location of Mother earth. Whom ever said the flood are comming was 100% correct! They are comming... If master Chief can't stop the floods arrival. Earth is finished.

The game is called HALO (where the flood were discovered), bungie knew they would be making a series, the flood will play a part in the 2nd, a developer said so in a Halo 2 article in EGM a year or two ago.

At E3, bungie let a lucky few play the Halo 2 multiplayer, xbox.com then follow e3 04 links.

August 24th --- dont OXM's usually ship about that time. My guess (with the BEE (Bungie Easter Egg)) someone also said SYSTEM PERYL message (single player playable demo)

Somebody said, "the covenant dont just attack humans" no shit, the tall Flood were infested elites. (look at one after you kill it, u can clearly see its head)

I have Fall of Reach, definately gonna get the rest now. Wish i still my old mac and marathon bundle "Oh my God!! They're everywhere!" The bonus audio track on #2, the civilians screamin to a beat was hilarious!!!!

You know, maybe the 8 billion dead that it says on the t shirt purchase page has to do with the covenant attacking china. Maybe this clock is a count down representing when and where the covenant first strikes on earth in the game, china. It doesnt look like it in the trailers but this is the future were tlaking about. Maybe they nuke china or something at the start of the game? lol.

In anycase all BS aside. I think its safe to say halo 2 has a new release date... I LOVE BUNGIE FOR PUTTING ONT HIS SHOW FOR THE FANS! WE ARE GRATEFUL BUNGIE!.

This is what they want. They make a site where everyone talks about it without officially saying they created it. There are so many hints and details that point out this was made by either Bungie or Microsoft. Why else would the trailor have the website on it. It is a clever idea. The first countdown ended and so did the beta testing last night. I've heard at the end of the last countdown that there will be a demo. Maybe the level of the first E3 demo. Can't wait til 11/9. Halo 2 will be the best game ever.

P.S. They won't have an early release of the game no matter how FUCKING awesome that would be. Especially a China release. Sorry to bust your bubble. A lot of people have posted good ideas and i hope they continue to. I wonder if Bungie and MS did this just to keep anticipation up or just to let us know a little more about the game. Maybe both. Good job on keeping us guessing MS and Bungie. I am a daily player of Halo still and I hope that Halo 2 will be the best game hands down. Ok it will be. A demo would be nice (hint hint).

I think that bungie uses heptadic numeric structure as a formula to determine some of the outcome of the Halo story plot. Also it is relavent to the data somewhat hidden in the Bee site. With the site on the movie trailer, this almost certainly confirmes bungies' affiliation to the bee site.
HERE IS THE PROOF!!!


From the bee site:


!attach

From http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1362.cfm Notice the mem invntry 678223072849
7, 14, are all numbers stated in haptic numeric structure!

In Psalm 110, Panin discovered that the number of Hebrew words in this Psalm is '63', which is 9 x 7 or '9 sevens'. Then, he proceeded to uncover thirteen more features of 7 within this one little Psalm. Using the Laws of Probabilities, we discover that "the chance for even these 14 features of sevens being accidental, undesigned, is only one is sevn multiplied by itself 14 times: one in 678,223,072,849, or less than one is some two thirds of a million millions ... not a paragraph in the whole Bible .. is constructed similarly; its authorship by ONE MIND, AND A SUPERNATURAL MIND AT THAT, alone accounts for the presence of these phenomena in the Bible." [Ibid., p 13; Emphasis in the original]

Remember that the bee site was advertised in the halo 2 cinema trailer

I´m sure most of u have seen this... http://www.cafeshops.com/ilovebees.12518390?zoom=yes#zoom%20and%20scrool%20up%20retardes ,
so u noticed that the images says 9 billion R.I.P, 9 billion bees, 9 billion humans... we are the bees!
and the flood is coming for us! yes! the final date of the countdown is where the 2nd stage of advertising begins....u know along with demos and stuff.. , that or, u as the master chief in halo 2 will have to kill 9 billion bad guys to survive.... I do really think Humans are the 9 billion....

One last thought... maybe the voice narrating, at least the part of "It was inevitable from the moment I landed here, a broken body in this silicon crypt. Time to accept what can't
[SPDR: INTERRUPT]
[SURRENDER CONTROL]
[PROBE IN PROGRESS]" is cortana trapped in a mark v (master chief) so beaten up that it´s almost useless, that sure would frustrate any AI.

"One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that in bed he had been changed into a monstrous verminous bug." That is from the book "The Metamorphisis" and Dana has it posted at the top of her page. I don't know if anyone realized that, but make what you will of it....

Weaving Girl and the Herd Boy, our day is coming. We will cross the River of Heaven. But first, that place, out there. Calling.
Yes, she said. I can see it now. But it is so faint.
Listen to it, he said, mixing his senses without knowing. Listen to its song, the roar, the chant, the deep hollow tones of its voice. It is calling. This ship that carries you, flung outward from Earth toward a small planetary system where others wait, this ship will be our anchor. That place out there which we call the Anomaly is our source, our sun, our power. You must go there.

Hi, just thought you might like to know that if you save some of those corrupt images on the site to your PC and then open them up in notepad, there's a few lines of English text hidden amongst all the ASCII

Blogger Maxm00 said...

for instance: in the image Killer.jpeg (of the blurred girl) there is the following text:

"Question:

Something bad will happen"

later on this appears:

"If the recipient is Dana,

Please don't be freaked out

The Widow the Queen are trying to keep me in very bad shape as well
I can sympathize with you

I believe I can help you out, I can apply a construct to protect your

core

Please! Please! Please!
Try not to worry) too much.

Keep your head up girl :)

Anyway.. I cant wait for HALO 2 to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!

for now, try switching hosting services.

P.S. No i'm not some predator or anything.. (Ima 14 year old for cryin out loud)

also, inform your hosting service about the bug, its probably on one of THEIR servers.

If this is real then cool, if its not, then i am not happy about typing all this without any point.

Okay, well ive been thinking about this for along time, and maybe captin keyes is part of the alien flood rebelion. I Belive its Cortana, I think maybe The i love bees creator. developed a cortana like AI and cortana is leading the flood and the moniter back to earth. and the military is trying to destroy i love bees to try to destroy the AI Software. thats what i think

Well the symbol says "9 billion ... R.I.P"

9 billion sounds like a population on Earth somewhere... like China? Or is it Earth as a whole? Since the symbol is a dead be, it must be referring to us, the 9 billion. They say the Quees bee is coming, so what could this mean?

11:40 AM  
Blogger earthisdone321 said...

OH!!!! I KNOW, okay i remember looking at some screen shots of charecters in HALO 2, there was 1 that looked like a ruler of some sort with a thrown and looked basicly like a queen, and get this. i know its captin keyes not, this is from I LOVE BEES.......... " As if under general anaesthetic, dimly conscious, half-aware as the surgeon cuts off my feet and sews them onto my shoulders. She opens my head with a medical hammer and sand spills out"........ hes talking about when he was mutated or zombiefied or w/e. and i also know that he refers it to a she. so use that to your knowledge.

heres the site, it dont really look like a bee, but it looks like a queen http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/halo2/screens.html?page=39

That is not a "Queen", it is a Covenant Prophet. The Prophets are the spiritual leaders of the covenant, and considering that the entire covenant is lead by religion, they are the most powerful (politicaly anyway) of all the covenant.

It looks like a British dude named Adam Foulkes registered this. It looks to be just a spinoff thing made by a fan by copying the source code of the countdown java code, but the domain name was registered in 2003. A little odd. I personaly, am going to disregard it as a random fan trying to make a little more buzz.

That was how i found out about this, but like this has got to be a big deal and the movie trailers wernt for the game, i think that they were for www.ilovebees.com because everybody already knows about the game, whats the whole purpose of putting it in theators, theres no point concitering the fact they also have TV Commercials for it. and it is shown during all the biggest movies. so this IloveBees deal has to be somthing bigger than we imagined.
