Olly Olly Axon Free

Nearly arrested today for walking on the grass in Yu Yuan Gardens. Public space here in Shanghai still feels somehow... private. Guarded. Much more regulated than in Bejing.

Error compounded: I was so flustered from the police encounter that I accidentally ordered two sugary meat puffs for lunch at the Mister Donut on Nanjing Xilu. (I thought they were chocolate creme-filled!) Lesson learned: Looks can be deceiving here, even when dealing with something as simple as the donut.

But not all my decisions have been bad lately. Seems like I picked exactly the right hemisphere for a game of hide and seek. Thanks for alerting me to the message you found on the metastasized site:

The Killer appears to have withdrawn from the field. I have data processes tracking her, but she appears to have physically escaped from me.

Well, the Operator may have grown axons, but by my calculations, Shanghai is axon-free.

Safe!

Also: I emailed the Sleeping Princess, now that I'm in more wired country (not so many Wi-Fi spots along the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall).

Will she finally show us the secret she found? Fingers crossed.

P.S. Major typhoon south of here yesterday. Not much damage here in Shanghai, but from the news reports, it sounds like others outside the city were hit really hard. Nearly 2000 people injured, more than 42,000 homes destroyed... thoughts and prayers with the victims. After an earthquake earlier this week, it seems like Mother Nature has it out for China this summer. may be time for me to move on to another country soon...

I just got this comment from Margaret Efendi, who replied to an e-mail I sent to the "ladybee777" hotmail account. VERY INTERESTING. Has anyone else gotten a reply? Check out the page of the queen's diary mid-way through.
________________________________
I can make my own words now. Watch:



It's rather lonely in the Castle.



There's clouds of fireflies around the Queen, but most of the time where I am it's dark, and empty. The hallways are empty and they echo, cho, cho. Sometimes the Queen staggers past, her head buzzing and crawling, with the Pious Flea whispering in her ear. Used to be, the only other thing you heard in the corridors at night were the Widow's thin legs, click clack click clack like knitting needles chattering across the stone floor. Course she's not around anymore. Can't say I miss her much.



Didn't stay quiet for long, though. Now the Queen is trying to build a voice. Strange, sad, broken thing; just hearing it makes me feel frightened and lonely.



I was surprised when the Queen sent her away, but Her Majesty DOES have a temper, and the Widow had been making a lot of mistakes. I was hiding behind the throne during their last argument. For days the Queen has been ordering her to build the most extraordinary number of little roads out from the castle. Turns out she was very particular about where she wanted them to go: more particular than the Widow understood. Widow hears, "Build a road," she just starts shoveling. Hard-working old biddy, the Widow, but not the sharpest pin in the cushion. She kept getting into fights with the Flea, when she could SEE him riding around up there on the Queen's shoulder, proud as a lord. The last time they quarreled, the Queen had just discovered the Widow had built one path mindlessly straight INTO THE SEA. This is what I mean about an Arachnid of Very Little Brain.



Usually I am a pretty good hider, but I made a terrible pig-snorty kind of laugh when I heard about the underwater road, and I think they would have caught me, if the Queen hadn't been busy breaking up the Widow at just that moment.



Anyway, I get the feeling the Queen is very grumpy. She has totally taken over the road-making business; I'm sure the paths will be better now. She's not always a lot of fun, the Queen (and quite mad, of course) but she does get things done.



Sometimes I sneak away to my very own secret garden, and pretend I am waiting for Dickon to come and teach me how to speak to the animals. I feel I should be getting stout and rosy-cheeked if only I could go out and play on a moor somewhere: but I never get outside. Just say in here, in here, in here….



Sometimes, to cheer myself up, I tell myself stories. In these stories, I am always the hero, Gretel or Lambkin or Gerda. I like stories where the girl takes care of things.



I think…



I think that's part of the reason I wanted Dana to come back. It's easier to be brave when you're looking out for someone else.



So now I feel better! You lovely people brought Dana back! I promised you that if you did, I would show you a page I snuck from the Queen's diary, so here it is!



McKaskill, I said. Got a moment?



Sure, Operator!



They call me the Operator because, you know, I work the system to take care of my crew.



McKaskill was a nice kid, family from Durban, on the outer colony world of Biko, which had been glassed years ago. But he’d grown up in refugee apartments in the inner colonies and he had the look of someone who spent his childhood in concrete places under artificial lights.



Weedy.



He was doing a check in the tool crib now. The go-to kid for tools and parts. The stacks of shelves were his little kingdom, probably more his own than anything he’d had growing up. I liked him a lot.



McKaskill, I said, I was checking the slipstream packets. I do that before I send them out. You knew that, right?



His eyes went to the grating at his feet and he got all casual inner city don’t screw with me, because he knew I was onto him.



Somebody has been talking to you, I said. And now you’re sending him a message back.



So?



I sighed. McKaskill, bad people are putting bad thoughts in your head.



He tried to get righteous. Op, that thing…whatever it is, in the hold. They’re keeping big-time wraps on it. You know that. I heard the Captain. The way she’s talking, they’re not gonna let people look at, it’s goin' to a basement in ONI. A sub sub sub basement. They can’t just take something that big and…shove it away somewhere.



McKaskill, I said, sending messages off to people without clearance, you know, that could be construed as treason.



Op! Melissa! I didn’t mean—



And we’re at war, crewman. Which makes treason a capital offense.



His eyes got wide. But-but-but you got it, he said, it didn’t go nowhere.



You’re my crew, and no one is going to touch my crew without going through me. I’ve got your back, McKaskill. But you’re going to have to tell me about this contact.



Some old guy. You know, bad taste in clothes. But he was cleared to come aboard, so he has to be Intel.



You know his name?



Probably not his real one.
_______________________________
So the question(s) is (are): who is the Queen, who is the Widow, and what is locked in the hold?

Dana, it's good to hear from you again. Hope all is going well in Asia. I know what you mean about storms, there's a huge one about to hit home soon, people have been evacuated from their homes, the roads are closed, many people are unsure what will happen. Keep us updated about your journey and any contact with the Princess, we appriciate it! And it's good to see you diving into this headfirst (just don't get in too far over your head). (:

And as a side note - it's rather sad when people go to such incredible links to bring falsities to the fore-front. The letter you recieved from ladybee777 is so obviously a fake that it's laughable. Provide headers next time, and it might make it a little more plausable (you might also want to use the same language structure that has been shown to be The Princesses').

I just got some news that might rain on some of your parades. sorry ahead of time :-)

The theory of the new Official XBOX Magazine having something in it on the 24th is out. On an articel at xbox.com it says:

"Oh yeah, and I got to play a whole day of Halo® 2 multiplayer at Bungie Studios. Pick up our October issue, on sale everywhere by September 7th, to read all (and I do mean all) about it."

If you don't believe me you can check it out for yourself at http://www.xbox.com/en-US/oxm/twix-20040812.htm

This isn't all bad news though. At least we will have an issue that completely exposes Halo 2!
WooHoo!!!

After reading the latest ilovebees.com post, and thinking that there is no way that that message came from the same person who is writing the "Dana" posts.
None of the messages or hidden warnings or blog posts ever use the words Widow and Queen that much. Anyone that agrees with me and thinks that that post is the result of some very creative person with a little too much time on their hands, let me know.

To Keith:

I'm not sure if I'm understanding you correctly, but do you think the e-mail I posted is a fake- as in I wrote it myself - or a fake - as in not really from that account.

The e-mail I received was from "Margaret Efendi", ladybee777@hotmail.com, and had that text posted exactly - nothing more or less- only the first half was in a green font color, and the bottom half (where the "diary" begins- in a reddish font color.

I sent an e-mail to that address about a week ago, and got that reply back this morning.

10:25 AM  
Blogger anony-mouse said...

Interesting... I had barely finished responding to Keith when Halofan chirps in. Trust me, I don't have time to spend on creative writing assignments... I just wanted to post what I received. I'm happy to post or forward you my original e-mail to ladybee, or her reply... but please don't accuse me of making something up.

In all honesty, I only randomly stumbled accross this site a week ago because I saw a post on the bungie site about all this, and randomly sent an e-mail to the hotmail address listed on the site. I didn't even recognize the name when I got it, and almost deleted it. So take it for what it's worth.

Blogger Slick-D said...

Guys I just had a thought and it seems to make the most sense, and I'm not sure if this has been posted in another forum, but here it goes:

People have thought that the nubers on the fun stuff page might be coordinates to cities. What if those cities are where demos will be sent.

Let me finish. These demos may not be available to take home, but to play in stores. Or, they could be cities where a convention or conference may be held.

These could be a more realistic theory.

Blogger Hey said...

Okay, Olly Olly OXEN Free is the Spartan's all clear signal. Im not sure if that has anything to do with Olly Olly AXON Free. Also there will be no demo, but that doesnt mean OXM will not have an Halo 2 article with screenshots. Also all the numbers on the Axon page are Coordinates, but not all of them point to cities, some point to empty fields and other strange places. Im not sure and I cant remember exactly what they are but Axons are a some kind of link between neutrons or something.

Make your decisions accordingly.

11:44 AM  
Blogger Slick-D said...

Even if the Buyer's guide does come out on the 24th with something about Halo 2, there won't be anything worthwile.

OXM announced that they were releasing their next issue Sept. 7th and sid that there will be a full expose on none other than Halo 2.

And as for Hey, how do you know there won't be a demo in stores or a conference. I don't think you actually looked up all of those coordinates. You don't sound to sure about what you said either.

Blogger Master Chief said...

Dana,
I thought you were coming back to SFO? Why stay in China? The Operator's Axons (or feelers) have not found you and that is a good thing. You don't want to be taken over by the Operators whims. They have no regard for any life. The Operator will take you over, that's it's job, that's what it does, and it won't stop till the host is finished. Run!

11:52 AM  
Blogger Slick-D said...

Master chief, do you not understand there is no Dana? And if there is or ever was that she worked for Zombie.com or Bungie or sold the site to them?

What's wrong with you?

It would be weird that the coordinate would be a place to play Halo 2 because one of them, here in Utah, is on the intersection of the highway I-215.

hi all... just a thought on the "axons" and coordinates. The gps coordinates may reflect areas that the operator has networked out to in an effort to escape the system it is currently in... hence it has metastisized (or spread) to these various locations through the network (or internet). these points could then be tied into the Halo 2 game premise as various checkpoints that you encounter as you progress in the game. just a thought

I know what an Axon is!

After wading through countless theories, seeing hundreds of others come up with convincing details, i finally know what something means!

"Axon" was a name coined by a robitics expert to describe a disposeable robot! The original conceptual axons were supposed to work at solar energy plants in the desert. (now remember, I'm pulling this information from 10 years ago, through foggy memory) Each axon would exist solely to go out, harvest raw materials (i.e. silicon, metal fragments) and haul them back to the "colony", where the raw materials would be converted, by machine, into additional solar grids, or more axons.

The primary selling point of an axon was supposed to be it's disposeability. As a colony is not hindered by the loss of one ant, neither should the collective axons be any worse for the loss of a single of their bretherin.

Now, what this has to do with our dear auntie's website is beyond me. The entities fighting within Ilovebees.com make more refernces to advanced AI then to independant, disposeable machines.

I just wanna say first off..."Arachnid of Very Little Brain" seems like it could play some significance, because of it being a statement, and its Capital letters. Or maybe its just me.

Search for it it being (AVLB - Arachnid of Very Little Brain) on google and a Bridge laying veichle will come up. In relation to technology I have no idea what a bridge or road would do. So to me its a dead end.

if we are talking about the queen/operator. She is being told what to do by a pious flea. Which has already been speculated/confirmed to be a "invisible program" that is a native (the flea replacing man in the robinson crusoeu extract). Why is it working for both sides...the spider and now the queen seems to be building bridges (or metanizing for the sake of the flea) yet is willing to defend its crew members?

Could someone tell me what AI the operator is?

Oh and in Halo1, how did Cortana's blind jump to save earth fail miserably. Not only did they jump to the halo but to where the convenant already were and chased them to?

Pretty unlucky or a stupid mistake for an AI heheh.


Just a few questions and speculations feel free to dismiss them all.

12:43 PM  
Blogger JamesHetfield said...

Sorry for double posting but I just saw a post that said that the coords might be various checkpoints for the game. I doubt this as that would mean an incredible number of levels. There are 200 something coords (I think) and there are about 10-15 checkpoints on aotcr. Each level is supposed to be as big as aotcr was. Just a thought but still that is a good point i just think there would have to be too many levels. Maybe it is possible but they would have to add alot of levels.

I was just wondering, does anyone else find it odd that a futeristic AI is quoting from old books all the time? Remember in Halo 1 when Sgt. Johnson refers to Rock music as classical? If Halo is so in the future that rock music is tha old, these books would be ancient, especially the Odyssey. And why would a warship's AI know so much about literature?

Also, someone mentiond axons as disposable worker robots... sound like drone (worker) bees anyone? well just food for thought.

When the medium metastasized, AXONs were made at those various coordinates by hi-jacked vectors. They are simply building an infrastructure for attack.

The flood is now digital. It's medium (physical form) has been metastisized (spread to another physical form). This allows it an assuault on both the physical and digital realms. Aside from that, it's still alive in the physical sense as well.

The covenant know we are being invaded by the flood, and figure they can destroy us AND the flood in one fell-swoop.

The covenant know this, because they have psychics on their side. Mind-reading, fortune-telling alien beings called Prophets.

As the name says, im just an observer. Im new to the whole ilovebees.com thing, but IF and ONLY if this has ANYTHING TO DO WITH HALO 2, it has got to be the most elaborate thing ever to come out since butter! this is a LOT of work just for a demo in the holiday OXM (once again, just saying if it even has anything to do with halo 2)and most of you people are hella smart to come up with such predictions, as i must admit, i am not the sharpest marble in the bag if you know what im sayin. i would never come to the conclusions you people are, so i gotta say KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

When the medium metastasized, AXONs were made at those various coordinates by hi-jacked vectors. They are simply building an infrastructure for attack.

The flood is now digital. It's medium (physical form) has been metastisized (spread to another physical form). This allows it an assuault on both the physical and digital realms. Aside from that, it's still alive in the physical sense as well.

The covenant know we are being invaded by the flood, and figure they can destroy us AND the flood in one fell-swoop.

The covenant know this, because they have psychics on their side. Mind-reading, fortune-telling alien beings called Prophets.

http://www.geocities.com/neo_debisu/index.html

Oh, did I mention HOW they plan to destroy humans and the flood in one fell-swoop?

No, I didn't.

But this is how it goes:

There's a Halo-like superweapon built into the Earth. They need to reach it, and we need to stop them... or do we?

deja vu?

Basicly, I am in game and i am not. I was pulled in because of events, so I am a part of what is happening.
It is possible that, as of now (IN GAME, I know dana doesn't exist) "Dana" could be or could not be the queen, it all depends on what view you take. Some even beileve that "Dana" (the dana running this site) isn't who she says she is.Lots of evidence pointing either way.

and I had to recap from Emergency Exit, Neo, because that is where this all happened, and It was hard enough trying to find it all again.As for interesting, that wasn't the point of this.

Sorry if this is confusing, but I am doing the best I can.

i think that bungie was done halo2 a long time ago and their so called adjustments were really being made to a possible halo3 this way they could be done making halo3 so they can release it in the very near future and i think august 24 is when they will announce the release date on halo3........................................



i mean look at how much better the matrix reloaded and the matrix revolutions did but this is only a thought from a person who is bored of laughing at other peoples thoughts and wants 2 give others a good laugh

3:43 PM

JohnnyBoy......

WTF??

Why on earth would they release Halo 2 on Nov. 9 if "they've been done for a long time"? If they have bee done for such a long time why is it that we have only just now gotten some of the details of what Halo 2 involves. We haven't even gotten the whole story.

Even more unlikely is the idea that Bungie could develop not only one game, but two games that quickly.

Please explain how it is possible to create such complex games that quickly.

Sorry to double post, but I have one more rant for JohnnyBoy.

What are you talking about with the matrix trilogy.

After the first movie, people were so hypnotized by it, they would have paid money just to see the first one three times if the makers said it was at all different.

You don't think they would have made more money if they would have spaced it out???

Heh... Johnnyboy seems to be mistaking Bungee and Electronic Arts. One thing Bungee has going for it is a continuous innovation between sequils. If Electronic arts (EA) made Halo, we'd allready be up to Halo 6 by now (Look at what they did to medal of honor. 13 games, still using the same engine)

If Bungee has truely finished the game, they would want to make a profit from it as soon as possible. I wouldn't be suprised it they had the core gameplay finished, weapons and physics perfected, and sounds finalized, but were still working on last-moment tweaks of AI and quietly adjusting the workings of various in-game objects. (rememer the barells from the movie? i hope to heaven that they don't explode in that cheesy a manner in the final game)

I don't know about all of you guys... but an axon to me is the long part of a nerve cell that transmits impulses outside of the cell. "Dana" may be referring to the phrase "AXONS GO HOT" at the top of the links page, and I think that this is an allusion to the "tunnels" dung by the spider (i.e. - network connections). Although I'm not sure what this means at the moment, I can't wait till the plot becomes a little more fleshed-out.

I'll make this quick.

@ 878787: I'll just assume your asinine, childish little "retaliations" are indications that you're too fucking STUPID and IMPATIENT to play along with the ARG. SHUT YOUR PIEHOLE.

@ Jennifer: Thanks for the apology. It's as good as forgotten. ^_^

@ Alec: I guaran-damn-tee you it's directly connected to the coordinates and the "AXONS GO HOT" message. In the Sleeping Princess' message, she refers to a misguided attempt by the Widow to generate an "axon" in the sea. As any diligent reader of bees.netninja.com will find, there is one set of coordinates that is out in the middle of nowhere - as in, halfway up the coast of California, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

@ EVERYONE: "Play along." It's called an Alternate Reality GAME for a good reason. And also, for more info, DEFINITELY be sure to check out bees.netninja.com - the best, most comprehensive source for ilovebees.com info that I've seen yet.

Man,if you're not going to talk about ilovebees or halo what the fuck are you doing posting on this site taking up space?!?!?!?At any rate,on other posts many people said that the humans and covies ally at some point in the game and looking at the trailers over and over i found like 3 clues that that could be it.I pretty much said that was bs at first but now i see there migth me something to this theory!Watch the trailer with the ilovebees.com link on it.Notice at the end the ghosts running to or away from something and then MasterCHief follows them?I think it's either both running away from something(flood anyone?)or going to attack a mutual enemy.Then on the conference with Bungee when the asain dude is talking you see a prophet right?Well,maby MasterChief meets the prophet and allies covies to kill someone else?And the best one(it think)is at the end of Halo.At the end,if you beat it on legendary you see a marine and an elite stop fighting and hug before Halo blows up.Meaning that if there is something dangering the existance of both the humans and covenant they could ally to destroy this greater threat.I may be completely wrong but the evidence is there.

I dont know about humans and covanant working together (seems to me like that would not make for good gameplay, but that is just me) but i think that at this point in the game, they aren't. I had kind of assumed that the "pious flea" was an antagonistic Covonant AI. I think it makes sense since at first the queen/operator was attacking, it "snapping" at it but now it is perched on her shoulder and mumbling into her ear. could the covonant AI be helping melissa get out in order to infiltrait earth? I guess that is humans and cononant working together, but not in that happy, lets save the universe together kind of way.

So now theres an actual connection between this ARG and the Halo world. The website refers to a Spartan as well as "covies" which could easily mean covanant.

This quote, which actually comes from an online forum member with some authority and literary prowess, goes out to all the idiots who have nothing better to do than keep mocking the rest of us for getting involved in what we already know to be an Alternate Reality Game (ARG):

"Just because you know a person is not real does not mean you should not treat them with respect. Remember you are trying to get information out of these characters. If you keep telling them that they're fake and asking them about Microsoft, Bungie, Halo2 and Keyes they will just start ignoring you. Talk to them like real people, have some imagination and you will find this game easier." (Taken from http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=44687#44687)

"You can get as involved as you like, but you tend to get out of this type of thing what you put into it." (Taken from http://mirlandano.com/quickstart.html)

"This is very important as you'll come to value the high signal to noise ratio... cut down on the noise and throw out a signal!" (Taken from http://mirlandano.com/quickstart.html)

For 878787 and the handful of folks who continue to believe that the site is engineered specifically by Bungie:

"I have serious doubts that this puzzle has anything to do with Bungie Studios at all. That it's linked to Halo 2 in some way is clear - after all, the URL showed up in the Halo 2 ad. That Microsoft is behind it, at least financially? Absolutely. (It's a pretty elaborate website, and it stayed up through a veritable hurricane of interest. That takes cash.) That it has, at its heart, a team involving Bungie behind it? There is no evidence for this. (There is no direct evidence AGAINST it, either - but I've got almost 10 years of Bungie-sense telling me that it doesn't feel right.) Folks point to the cafepress store selling shirts with bees on the front and a Halo 2 logo on the back, or posts by 'Cortana' in various forums, as 'PROOF POSITIVE' that Bungie is involved - I disagree; if anything, these things are proof that Bungie has nothing to do with this. (Cortana will NEVER again be used in the cryptic way she was introduced in the Cortana letters - Bungie has 'retired' that character. And anyone can set up a cafepress shop - its existence proves nothing.)"

(Reply from Louis Wu @ halo.bungie.org, quoted on http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=44687#44687)

Somewhere on one of the above pages, I recall also seeing an advisory against posting highly off-topic material (that would be you, baseball fans) but I don't recall exactly where it was.

Again, these sites should be visited before getting involved in what is already a well-planned and thoroughly involving ARG:

http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=44687#44687

http://mirlandano.com/quickstart.html

These websites also have a number of excellent links that will not help to "solve the mystery" but will certainly keep things interesting and fresh by providing background information that all "players" in this "game" will need to know.

And lastly, I can not recommend "bees.netninja.com" enough. Membership on the site is absolutely free and surprisingly easy to set up, and it is *definitely* the best place to find information for this ARG.

Now for those of you who prefer to act in the manner of bullies and spoil the game for everyone else: STOP TROLLING BEFORE THE ADMINISTRATORS GET INVOLVED.

hey look from an earlier post someone said that covies and humans wouldn't like to work with eachother.Thats what i meant.They save the univers for their own needs but dont stop hating eachother.Also when the eleite was about to die he just stopped fighting the marine and hugged him.Covies will momentarily stop hating humans in the face of almost certian death and ally them.I mean if there was a phsyco with a gun threatening to kill you and ur worst enemy (and he WILL do it!he killed ppl before and no one will save you,ever)you would prolly work with ur enemy to save ur own ass.:D
And to someone who asked,here's a short recap on some stuff:
Dana is Fake :(
ilovepees/ihatebees are fake.Nothing to do with ilovebees.
Speculations of a single player demo ,SPDR,have been denied by Bungie.
Rampant AI *hacked* Dana's website(www.ilovebees.com)
WWDP is we want dana porn :D
OXM(Official Xbox Magazine)will release holiday guide issue thing on the 24th and say there will be halo 2 stuff in it.
Nov9th is official release date of Halo 2
24th is 77 dyas from Nov9th.
On Nov9th earth will never be the same.

Thats what i consider important enough to write down :(

Is there a planned prequel novel to halo 2? if so... could that be a possibility? also the site deteriorating like it is reminds me of when in the "First Strike" novel cortana makes copys of herself inside the unyeilding heirophant ( covanent space station of some sort I think, can't remember) and the copys begin making copys (and with every copy more errors appear in all of the new cortanas) until eventually it's just chaos. so maybe halo 2 prequel or something? I don't know... I'm always wrong. I'll shut up now. *explodes*

Good to hear from you Dana. Get back to San Fransisco ASAP. We need your help in investigating this "virus" on your Aunts website. Looks can be deceiving Dana, you have to look deeper within to find the true messages of life. Keep moving so Operator doesn't find you. Drop by my site if you like and give us some help.

All right i am forced to make another rant because ppl are too fucking stupidand have to egg me on with their stupidness.WhiteFangRMB dont you realize that bungie puts those ads together becuase its there game so the know what to put in it.remember bungie said no comment when someone asked if they had anything to do with this site
"Bungie-sense"?who is this person spiderman
and im glad you can copy and paste.it shows me you arent that retarded.i was reading the third book is what leads up to halo 2 and shes still there and in one of the halo 2 trailers shes in it if im not mistaking.see whitefang you havent gathered every pive of info on this so its apparent that you really dont know what youre talking about.so why dont you do what im doing and GET THE BOOKS see im doing that because i want to learn everything about this.like i told someone else microsoft has bigger this to take care of like running a billion dollar company and other games to publish and market and put out.Remember when bungie pushed the game back for the last time i can bet you they had a few meetings concerning how to market the game.they came up with this website.they prob consulted with microsoft and told them what they were doing.but that doesnt mean microsoft had a hand in it.So now i will end this rant on that note

I feel that on this blog i am a moderator without being one if i see someone who just doesnt get what this website is about i will tell them so.we dont need ppl telling us the site is bogus cause we can make up are own minds.SO STOP TELLING US.WE DONT NEED YOUR HELP.IF YOU ARENT HERE TO HELP US SORT OUT THIS SHIT THEN DONT POST.

on another note has anyone consideredthat the letters with the princess could be letter from the covenant.just a suggestion

Phew. ... I stopped posting here, in fact, even trying to post here mainly because for one thing, bees.netninja.com has all of the information listed here and so much more, enough to make this place almost completely irrelevant. For another, these comments are getting less and less useful to dig through over and over again with so many trolls, rude people, idiots, and flamers who want to argue. Which is another good thing about bees.netninja.com - all of the information discovered or proposed is sorted into area specific bits and no irrelevant discussion is tolerated.

So, anyway. B&W, man, I'm over on the Wiki and in #beekeepers. If anything interesting turns up here... it will probably already be on the Wiki.

Well PratzStrike, all I have to say is here here! You would figure that this site would be less filler and more info, but no. Anyway, to the new guy wiki is a great place to get caught up on stuff. They are way on top of things and have some good ideas. And as for the guy that thinks the princess may be covie (if i understood correctly) I personally think that the flea is covie. since the princess is trying to help dana, i for whatever reason think that she is like an alternate personality for the queen/operator. kind of like multiple personality disoreder. to be honest though, i have no proof to back that up.

Lookie Lookie wat popped on the net

Maps-

The build only had three maps. These were.

ZANZIBAR- The same as it was at E3. Really a well thought out and balanced
map, and, to be brutally honest, puts maps like Blood Gulch to shame. Not
much to say about it because we all already saw it at E3. The one thing is,
getting the plasma sword isn't as hard as they make it seem.

MID SHIP- A level taking place on a covenant battle ship. Mostly a round
map, it has plenty of different height elevations that allow for sneaky
tactics, especially in CTF. A main platform in the middle holds a new
weapon, witch I will get to later.

IVORY TOWER- I don't really get Ivory Tower, it seems to be some sort of an
enclosed greenhouse or park. It has elevator type platforms, something that
was missing from Halo:CE MP maps. It also has powerful air vents that if you
walk over will send you soaring through the air to the level above. Those
are an excellent way for avoiding death and turning the tables on your
attacker.

Weapons

SMG- Not as bad as it looks. It will definitely satisfy people who are
missing the ol' assault rifle because of its large clip size, but that
little baby packs a punch. Two SMGs can take kill a person in about one or
two seconds. Watch out for that one.

SHOTGUN- Back and badder then ever. It has a slightly new look, very sexy if
you ask me. The reload rate is a little slower, but it makes up for it with
it's powerful attack.

SNIPER RIFLE- Guess what it has? RECOIL WOOT WOOT! There is a slight recoil
when you shoot it, making it difficult to kill people as easily. Finally,
sniping in that game will take a little more skill then before. The bullet
trail is still there, and it sports a new, slicker look. It's scope is round
instead of square, and the rifle itself is more streamlined.

ROCKET LAUNCHER- Not much to be said here. It's a little bigger then it was
before, and fires slightly faster. Target tracking isn't as unfair as it
seemed, it actually adds more balance.

BATTLE RIFLE- A fun and cool looking weapon. Much deadlier when it is
scoped. Because it fires bursts unscoped, it can be more difficult to hit
your target and I prefer the SMG for close quarters stuff.


NEEDLER- Fast. Deadly. Awesome. This gun will become a favorite very
quickly. The needles are lightning quick and it fires much faster. SMG and
Needler duel wielded is really really deadly.

PLASMA RIFLE- Not much to say, sports a new look and sound and doesn't
freeze you as much when you are hit with it.

PLASMA PISTOL- Once again, not much has changed. New look and sound, still
pretty useless.

BEAM RIFLE- OMG OMG OMG new weapon! The covenant Beam Rifle is the
equivalent to the human Sniper Rifle. It has the same scope power, two times
and ten times scope. The main difference is that like all other Covie
weapons, it does not have to reload. This allows you to stay scoped as long
as you want. It has 100 charges and drains 4 charges with each shot, so you
do the math. However, it does overheat, and will do so after two rapid
succession shots. If you have patience though, you can keep up a steady
stream of shots without overheating.

BRUTE SHOT- Another new weapon, it is the Brute rifle. Not really a rifle
though, more of a grenade launcher. I didn't use it that much, the only map
it was on was Mid Ship. That, and it wasn't very good. It fires grenades
that bounce around, so it is hard to hit your target. Still cool though.

ENERGY SWORD- Don't mess with the best 'cause the best don't mess. That
pretty sums up the energy sword. If you see someone coming at you with it,
back away and empty every clip of every weapon you have into them, because
it is deadly. Once they get a good lock on you, pressing R will do the lunge
attack and one hit kill you back to Halo 1. I have lovingly dubbed it the
"n00b stick" to go along with it's other n00bish partner, the n00b cannon,
or rocket launcher.

Differences and new stuff:

-You can jump higher
-You seem to throw grenades a little shorter
-You can see your feet
-You see your shields spark and crackle when they are taken down, and you
see a ring similar to the one at the beginning of PoA when they recharge
-All weapons have more than one melee attack
-When scoped in with any weapon, it has an ammo count in the scope to tell
you how much is left.
-All weapons aside from scoped weapons have binoculars.
-Hijacking vehicles is hard but awesome. And I mean awesome. It's like.
knifing some one on Counter Strike.
-When in the warthog passenger seat, it is a third person view instead of
FP, making it much easier to aim.
-The warthog handles better, and the right trigger is a horn and the left is
a brake. It DOES NOT have a boost.
-The Ghost is still awesome and has unlimited boost.
-One strange thing I noticed was that there is no fall damage, but that is
probably just the beta.
-The HUD is completely different. The health bar is now vertical, and is
above your radar in the lower left hand corner. Your right-handed weapon has
taken the health bars previous spot, and the left-handed weapons info is in
the upper left hand corner. You also can see what your reserve weapon is. In
the bottom right hand corner is a score keeper, a red bar and a blue bar
that show the difference between kills, flag captures, etc. This allows you
to quickly check the score without having to press back.
-There is no more health. Once your shields go out, you can take three or
four more shots, but there is nothing to indicate how much health you have
elft.
-Frag grenades don't look like pineapples anymore.
-You move slower while carrying the bomb or flag, and must hold x to pick
them up.
-Spartans and Elites grunt in pain when they are it with no shields up.
-Halo 2 will support four people on one Xbox for LIVE play. All at the same
time. In case you didn't here me, I just said FOUR PEOPLE ON LIVE AT THE
SAME TIME ON THE SAME BOX! How awesome is that?
-There is no flashlight it is now a teamspeak button.

New Gametypes

SWORDS- Yes, there is a swords only game type. 'Nuff said.

ASSUALT- This is not like the assault with flags. This one is done with
bombs. It is a lot like bomb maps on CS. One team is on defense, while the
other is on offense. Some one on the offensive team must pick up the bomb,
which is like flag in that you can melee with it but can't carry it and use
guns at the same time. The offensive team must then escort the bomb bearer
to the defensive teams base, plant the bomb, and prevent the enemy from
defusing it. You defuse by simply standing on the bomb. After the round is
over, the teams switch roles, like one flag CTF. It is really an awesome
gametype.

Rumors killed or confirmed-

-You CANNOT drive any vehicles while carrying the flag or bomb.
-You CANNOT duel wield plasma swords.
-The flag and bomb DO slow you down.
-There IS NO DIFFERENCE aside from appearance between Spartans and elites in
MP.
-There is NO health meter.Maps-

WATERWORKS- You can all see the waterworks screenshots, and it is really,
really huge. It has all of the known vehicles; Tanks, 'Hogs, Ghosts, and
Banshees. This map truly is gigantic, and you need at least 10 people. In
the middle of the map is a giant crevice that you can fall down (and die)
and fly banshees down (and live, but nothing is there). The bases have an
assortment of weapons and a stationary gun turret with a good field of fire.

Weapons-

COVENANT CARBINE- I never found this before because it is hidden on both
Midship and Ivory Tower. Why is it hidden? Well, I'll tell you. It is
probably the best gun in the game. It basically is the equivalent to the
battle rifle, only better. It always fire single shot, but you can hold down
the trigger. This way it is like shooting a machine gun with a decent rate
of fire through a scope. Also, it doesn't overheat, it fire cartridges. That
little flower thing on top is the clip. It has a 20 shot clip.

MAGNUM- So there it is. The pistol. I hope all you pistol crazy people are
happy, it's there. Honestly though, what game doesn't have a pistol? It HAS
been toned down though. I couldn't tell about the amount of damage it did,
but it only has a ten shot clip and no scope. It still has the same shape as
before, but it is completely black.

Vehicles-

SCORPION TANK- There it is, it also is back. It is the exact same thing as
before, except it's main weapon has a faster rate of fire, and cooler
explosion effects. It also moves on an independent axis from it's turret.
Now you can "strafe" so to speak with a tank. Also, it doesn't take any
vehicle damage. I spent 5 minutes shooting it with every weapon, including
another tank and it didn't leave a scratch.

BANSHEE- The Banshee also is the same, except for a few minor performance
upgrades. It can strafe, that is a big improvement. It also doesn't have a
fuel rod god, that was replaced with the boost. It CAN be hijacked

Stuff to note.

-Vehicles damage is highly case sensitive, and you can't shoot out the tires
of a warthog
-The SMG target reticle is the same as the AR from Halo:CE.
-Elite hands look funny, our clan HAS to be Spartans.
-The Elite HUD is purple.
-No melee while duel wielding.

Ok, this is the only time I will post OOC. Neo is God, dude you need to chill out and leave WhiteFang alone. She's a cool person that has done nothing but bring good info to the table. As far as your "info" goes about the weapons and levels and stuff, you didn't referance where you got that information and therefore it is to be considered made up by you. People this is Dana's weblog. She is an in character "player" in this "game", netninja or ninjanet whatever it is is for OOC discussion, go there for the OOC stuff, when you post here, leave Dana messages not discussion as to what this means or that. Thank you, now we're all in this together, we need to pull together team and Identify who we are against, and I think it's obvious we're against Widow, Queen and the Pious Flea. Lets work together for a common good Spartans, or we won't win this war.

@ Lieutenant Dropdead: Thanks for the support. I'll post if I find anything new, but again, I can't serve as an advocate of bees.netninja.com enough. (And for future reference, I'm a "he." ^_^)

------------------------------------------------

@ Neo_Is_God: What is the problem? I was on your side, until you posted that long-ass rant about how *I* was ruining the game!

I'm trying to help restore some semblance of order so that everyone can enjoy the ARG the way that it was designed. You should probably take the time to read the websites I mentioned, so you'll see that, in fact, I'm really not "retarded" (as you so affectionately put it) and am actually doing research to try and keep the ARG in line.

As for being an "honorary moderator," you're taking it a bit far. At the very least, when you read posts like mine, stop and actually think about their contents before you make a snap judgment like the one that was clearly made prior to my upload. The purpose of this website is not to sit around and come up with theories on how this is meant as a promotion for "Halo 2." The purpose is to help this character, Dana, to sort out the "issues" that are being faced on her aunt's web server, NOT to submit inane commentary from novels and magazine articles concerning a video game that, as far as the Dana character knows, have absolutely nothing to do with the crisis she and her family are facing.

And as for "not knowing everything," I think I've made that pretty clear. If I knew everything I wouldn't be including all of the websites where I'm getting the loads of interesting information that I'm accumulating.

On a specific and relevant note: The quote was from a Bungie employee. If you would please take the time to read the Unfiction forum site that I offered in my previous post, you would see what I'm talking about.

Can we please stop the Flame War(s) that are going on here, and concentrate on the Alternate Reality Game that Microsoft, Bungie, and/or (supposedly) Zombie have put together to entertain us and make us think?

Neo, Louis Wu is a legend for bungie fans, I promise he knows more than you do about this topic, and if anyone has a "bungie-sense" it's him. And what he meant by "retiring" Cortana was as the character in the Cortana letters, sent to the Marathon story page in the run up to Halo. She's obviously in the game, just not relevant to this ARG.
And I think we can all do without you as our unofficial moderator, thanks.

"Nearly arrested today for walking on the grass in Yu Yuan Gardens. Public space here in Shanghai still feels somehow... private. Guarded. Much more regulated than in Bejing."

Dana,

Err, what do you expect? Even if this blog is true and you are really in China let me remind you of this. You are in a pseudo-communist country.

This is what really irritates me about you Americans. You go travelling around the world thinking that you are great and that everyone should behave morally, ethically, and culturally as you do - or that you can do anything you want. Let me remind you that America is far from perfect.

It's simple. When you are overseas you RESPECT the country and that country's political climate. If you don't like it or can't do it, DON'T GO THERE. Geez, I don't go to America for that reason. That and I don't particularly want to go walking down the street and get shot for no reason.

If you walk on the grass, you get arrested. DON'T DO IT. If you tackle someone badly in soccer, you get a YELLOW CARD. If you go over to China and protest, you get arrested. How would you like it if I came to Washington and took a shit on one of your statues? Or protested because I dislike the violence projected at the rest of the world by America? I'd probably get arrested. It's all about respect, and that's something you Americans need to learn.

Dammit this gets me so angry. This blatant disrespect and naivity makes me want to take a .45 and shoot myself.

Grow up.

Also, to whoever made the comments earlier about Chinese culture and government: I totally agree with you on the need to respect individual cultures, and *especially* to regard local laws with the utmost respect. If there was no sign on the grass, however, it's not entirely Dana's fault. We Americans are surprisingly ignorant of the world around us. It comes from generation after generation of developing a reliance on "Warning" labels. Still. thanks for reminding us about the necessity of "respecting the fine line."

Sand is a naturally occurring, finely divided rock, comprised of particles ranging in size from 0.063 to 2 mm. An individual particle in this range size is termed a sand grain. The next smaller size class in geology is silt, which are particles below 0.063 mm down to 0.004 mm in size; the next larger size above sand is gravel, which ranges up to 64 mm (see grain size for standards in use).The most common constituent of sand in inland continental settings and non-tropical coastal settings, is silica (silicon dioxide), often in the form of quartz. However, the composition of sand varies according to local rock sources and conditions. Much of the fine white sand found in coral reef settings, for example, is ground-up coral (limestone) that has passed through the digestion of the parrot fish. Some locations have sands that contain iron, feldspar, or even gypsum.Sand is transported by wind or water and deposited in the form of beaches, dunes, sand spits, sand bars, and the like. In a desert, sand is a dominant soil type. Sandy soils are ideal for certain crops such as watermelons and peanuts and are often preferred for intensive dairy farming because of their excellent drainage characteristics.Sand is an example of a class of materials called granular matter."

may not be connected, subject line was "buy codeine legally" - almost erased it...

just thought i'd share...

also - could the coordinates be fiber-optic or other underground cable conections?(bridge builders)

if anyone visited a posted location, there should be a posted warning for underground cable... probably not if along a road, only rural sites...

I was thinking that if the forerunners and covenant are allied.Then maybe in Halo 2 there will be an alliance with the UNSC and the flood. Check out the third Cortana Letter she says that she found something locked away that can be either destructive or helpful.

Also- everyone just chill out with hating America. Our citizens are not disrespectful. Our government is just trying to restore peace. I just wish everyone else could see that. Just chill out America is not an evil place

Master Beast your government is not trying to restore piece. The American people , at least the vast majority, only believe what the media tell them. Take a look at a non- american network. The innocent people who lose their lives or parts of their body by the american bombings is a way of restoring piece or maybe the torchures at the prisons?

To all those who speculate on what will come out on August 24th, I think you must be reminded that in an ARG (Alternate Reality Game), everything happens in that ALTERNATE reality. In this case, the alternate reality is Dana's world, in which something messed her site up. I don't have any problem with the relations you draw with HALO 2, but stop thinking that something will happen IN THE REAL WORLD on August 24th. It will probably be a clue that will keep the game going. There is still 3 months until the release, try to enjoy this (AR) game instead of trying to project it on the REAL world, I assure you, it is going to be a much better experience. Have a nice day.

Please keep your political and hate speech to yourself. This is supposed to be fun and a game. 'Nuff said. Halo 2 has already received and ESRB rating of M and already has packaging made. And this is from the ESRB.org web site "When the game is ready for release to the public, publishers send copies of the final product to the ESRB. The game packaging is reviewed to make sure the ratings are displayed in accordance with ESRB standards. Additionally, ESRB's in-house game experts randomly play the final games to verify that all the information provided during the rating process was accurate and complete."
Please let their be some kind of content available on Aug. 24th! The game, video, or something. If MS put up a XBOX live download only demo of Halo 2 their Live subscriptions would skyrocket and since they are all about making a profit, why not? 08/24/04, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I must say that I'm very intrigued.
Just found out about this and it seems like quite a mystery.
I just wish I could help some way if I could, maybe try to decipher some cryptic emails.

I think staying on the move may be a good idea. If this thing has some sense of physical self, and it surely knows of this blog, who knows what it could do to you?

Just a quick note on a literary allusion...

....the description of the Widow as "an Arachnid of Very Little Brain" is a clear reference to Winnie the Pooh, who is frequently described in the original books as "a Bear of Very Little Brain", with capitals like that.

I'm with PratzStrike on this one. With all of the trolls, spammers, and idiots here this place isn't much fun anymore. I just wish all these assholes would stop going on about baseball and politics and "OMG Dana is FAKE, the site is FAKE it's not real and M$/Bungie is EVIL! Blah blah blah marketing ploy!"

Sigh. Seriously, why don't you people just shut up already? You're missing the whole point and ruining it for everyone else.

This post is specificly intended for Neo_is_god or whatever your name is. For one you need to calm down and 2. What the hell is with your huge post about Halo 2? Do you know anything because a lot of that stuff you said is wrong. Like tanks not being destructible,I know for a fact that they are because i read about it in the official xbox mag. and the thing with no health bars, thats so bullshit. Even if you didn't make that up and got from some other website, check your stuff before you post and don't act like you know more then everyone else if you don't know jack. And to everyone else, lets try to figure this one soon cause i got some hankering for some Halo 2 knowledge.

Well your fact is pretty homosexual on account of there are no health bars anymore just the regular life bar that can rejuvinate and all... dumb bitch.. look at the E3 2K4 multiplayer clips.. NO bars son. Yes and I havent seen any new info here I guess the only thing left to do is wait till next tuesday....

just a thought, what if on the 25th they tell us everything that's in the metal box? we know most of it, but they are still not telling us on thing. and on the 24th they stop orders on the CE box, and that's why it's says "Make your decisions accordingly"
just something that poped into my head

well if you were reading earlier post brights that was the beta version
someone leaked the info on the net.but it was taken down because they (mainly microsoft and bungie) dont want ppl to know that much about the game yet
look at my earlier posts it tell you where i got it from the thread(blog)is still there but the took down the beta info and the guy was banned from the forum

Well, I don't normally post on a website such as this out of the blue, but I couldn't go past it. Whatever has caused this, whether it be a hacking or something else, it's definately interesting and worth taking a look at. How long exactly has your Aunt's site been infected? As much as people love the idea of the XBox theory, I highly doubt that hacking a personal website created to sell honey would be the way to get the message out there. No, I would assume - note, assume - that this is something else entirely. One thing's for sure. I'm sticking around to see what the countdown is for.
Just a littel sidenote: Whoever was the one tracing the supposed hacker's movements musn't have done a very good job. Creating a constant program alteration is much easier to track than a simple break and enter. Maybe finding someone else to search the trails and follow would prove more fruitful.

NO HEALTH BARS? That's bullshit and you know it. I have seen the e3 2004 demo. A lot of times and i know there aren't any health bars VISIBLE and that is the key word. It wouldn't make sense to not put health bars in. And the comment about homosexuality, i'd take a look in the mirror OsamaBinKinky.

Well, if anyone feels like getting off of their instigative asses, somebody can look into this. I've seen it posted on the Bungie forums before and I've seen conversations people have had with the guy. VERY odd.

I read in this blog somewhere about people decoding the songs and finding static and similarities between Dr.V's voice and a grunt...and it's intriguing.

Hey there -

just regarding Halo 2 and health bars. Looks more like we won't have 'em, which kind of sucks and kinda doesn't. Major League Gaming did a write up on Halo 2; this was only like a fortnight ago, so it's probably quite reliable. Check out the screenshots; no health bar. And he mentions quite a bit about the new shield system:

"Other things we noticed about the game are the new shield system. Basically, the health meter is gone now; all you have is a shield. If your shield gets depleted, one more shot to the head will kill you. What’s new however, is that if you hide after your shield is depleted, it returns and it means that you once again have “full health” and take a full number of shots to die again. There are no health packs, and it potentially means you can stay alive a lot longer."

I'm trusting that Bungie have done the right thing...

I looked and I saw malcolm X staring back at me son.. and I support gay rights.. you excercise them.. but seriously brotha brights the health bars are no more but I think to balance it they made the replenishing heath bar thing longer and more resistant so its gonna be the same as halo 1 probably..

Ok for the people about the health bars

Neo_is_god (sorry I also dont know your handle name exactly) is right, there will not be any health bars.

Now Neo I have read some one of your earlier rants and they are basically pretty bad. I know someone (from where I live) who is just plain awful, and rants alot.
You use WAY too many "curse words" and please punctuate. Ofcourse this isnt the point. (work at it you will be fine, I also like to piss people off*and I am not saying I am god at it either, but when you are pissing off people in public dont cuss*)

HEALTH BARS=BAD
1. They just made me mad, I hated having 1 bar left and walking into a gun fight *now I am pretty good at Halo, I win most of my games online (xbconnect for noobs, if you dont believe me LOOK IT UP, you can also use gamespyarcade)*
2. When you are at low health and full shields you are at a basic disatvantage, and picking up health packs is quite annoying, because a lot of the time 2-3 people pile up in the same place waiting for them.
3. JUST WAIT FOR YOUR DAMN SHIELDS TO CHARGE!!! Imagine the new system being exactly the same right *because it basically is* you wait a few seconds and your back at full health so you will be fine, and NOT AT A DISATVANTGE.
4. Play halo today and imagine what it would be like, with the new system and guess what? It OWNZ you.
5. BUNGIE ISNT DUMB
6. THEY WONT FAIL YOU
7. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING
8. THEY MADE HALO
9. REMEMBER THAT
10. YOU DIDNT

Ok, for the last guy to post, read the forums man! We already covered the whole "voices" thing on the hives website.

Everyone who is bitching about Health bars, politics, Halo 2 info. : SHUT UP! None of this has to do with helping Dana or Aunt Margeret(sp?) in any way. There are a million other sites for you guys to post about this stuff.

Lastly : Stick to the ARG people. Seriously, Dana is very disappointed I'm sure in her team of Spartans when they're bitching about politics, specs on Halo 2, or anything other than her Aunts website.

Now as I understand it there were some new distortions and disruptions on the ILB website. Can anyone who will stick to that topic please confirm or disconfirm that?

And to the Flea if you're reading this, we will give you any help we can on straightening Melissa's memory. Because that seems pretty important. Thanks.

I'm assuming that 'wide awake and physical' the Operator will be able to transfer itself (herself?) into a physical body, which as I understand it will be be VERY bad news for Dana.

Dana, have you tried actually communicating with this thing? It seems to be under the impression that you tried to kill it, (It said traitor, hacker, or fifth column I believe? Not sure what that last one means.) I think you need to do everything possible to explain to it that what you did was an accident; you had no idea it was sentient, and even if the spider was broadcasting warnings like it said you couldn't understand them.

And if you can't speak to it by the 23rd, then I suggest you disappear, and *fast*, because we have no idea what this thing is capable of...

And while I'm typing this, can someone explain what connection the Queen and Sleeping Princess have to the Operator? I've heard that people have gotten through to the Princess by email, so I was wondering if it would be possibleto send a message to the Operator through her.

(And what's the deal with the Flea? Is it a virus or a bug or what? I've read some e-mail transcripts at netninja suggesting that it's controlling the Queen...and to be honest that kind of scares me; the Operator might be a threat to Dana, but I think the Queen could be a threat to everyone else...are those roads she had the Widow build in some way connected to the coordinates on the links page?)

I don't know if this is old news, but at the Cafepress store for Aunt M, there's a shirt by the name of "Wide Awake and Physical." The shirt only has the equation 11+9+4=24. Follow me on this, 11/9/04 is the release date of Halo 2 right? the timer at ILB says "Wide Awake and Physical" will take place when the counter ends at Augest 24th. Does this not say rather directly that the release date is now the 24th?

Hey again.

Those Cafe shops are still being debated; are they proof positive or negative? I haven't decided; but on the matter of an early release, like we're all hoping for, I don't give it much dice.

Check out this post from Frankie, the famed writer of Frankie's Halo 2 Updates. He makes it pretty clear, and I don't think it's just blowing smoke in the collective I Love Bees face.

He repeats this info in this update and also claims it's official. No early release, unfortunately, and no demo. Bummer.

If you want to know more about those T-Shirts, Mugs, etc, check out the I Love Bees Wiki and look under the "falsities" section. It's pretty concise.

Does anyone know how to, or have the capabilities to take the sound that is on the Buzzing pages, and seperate it. Let me give an example.
A tape records information on multiple tracks. Those tracks are then all played at the same time, on top of each other. Since each of the tracks is meant to go with the other, your human ear will hear the Song as a complete.
Now, if you take multiple tracks of different conversations, not related to each other, you get a very big mess of noise. kinda like when 5 people talk to you at the same time and you can't focus on just one.
What I want to know is, can any of you take apart the sounds.
I have listened, and can pick out 3 distinct voices in it. They ARE talking about Bees in some maner. I simply don't have the skills to take it all apart. But I'm great at taking what people give me, and making a picture out of it. I will be working on that, as I have been for the last 16 hours.

DANA, Stay safe. We're working on it.

Chronofrog182 - Anyone can post a reply on the blog, so I imagine anyone with actual knowledge of the situation wouldn't do it in a way that's so easy to impersonate or fake. I'm pretty sure the only ones with authentic information would be Dana, the people Dana mentions, etc.

Sensen - I was wondering something along those lines myself. Those sounds are frustrating the heck out of me, because I can *almost* make out the words. If someone could just get rid of all that buzzing it would help immensely.

DANA - I really wish you'd let us hear from you soon, the 24th is getting closer and closer, and while I realize I told you over e-mail to just try to lay low, the next few days may be the only halfway *safe* window of opportunity anyone will get to explain to this thing that you're not it's enemy.
