found and lost

All the King's horses and all the King's men... well, you know. Hopeless. The Queen, on the other hand, just put her scrambled transmissions together again.

Now we can listen to the Operator's broken-up audio files in their original order — compliments of the Sleeping Princess, who found 'em for us while the Queen was fussing over her axons.

And that's not all the Sleeping Princess found. Apparently, the Operator has been holding out on us... keeping a secret stash of transmissions. Intercepted communications she doesn't trust us to hear yet. But for some reason, the Sleeping Princess wants us to have them now. A dozen puzzles later, we've got 'em — and for now, we know more than the Operator thinks we do.

*

In other news: Ming tian jian, China!

After 3 weeks, Shanghai felt... familiar. Time to be lost again.

Where to? A friend of mine once said that Shibuya Crossing was the only place on earth his invisible superpowers worked. I always remembered that. So, off I went to become an anonymous speck in Tokyo. I landed at Narita Airport on Sunday.

Something kind of funny happened during the flight. The guy sitting next to me on the plane had a sketchbook and some colored pencils with him — I noticed this when I nosily started watching over his shoulder. (Yeah, I know, bad habit.) Then I completely freaked him out by yelping not very quietly and clutching his arm—yes, his arm!—when I realized what he was drawing. It was a picture of girl holding a bunch of balloons. When he pulled out the red pencil to start coloring them in, I almost lost it. (Ridiculous, I know.) Then I had to try to explain to him why red balloons made me so jumpy. I don't think he quite got it. But I had to tell you guys the story — because I knew you'd understand perfectly.

It's awfully nice to have so many allies out there who understand perfectly.

First post! yeehaa. Hmmm.... I wonder why no one else is posting this early in the morning???? Why was I the first to see Dana's new post?

Wait...I don't understand the whole bit about the red balloons...Am I missing something? Maybe I'm a bit tired, I dunno, but I still don't completely understand. Any ideas folks?

Dana, were you ever read a children's story, more an allegory, really, about a little girl named Perdita, who became lost when she took too long to choose a bouquet of red balloons? Can you tell us how that story ended?

I also am clueless about the red balloons, but im sure i could dig up that info. Ive been listening to all the audio files and im starting to gain an understanding at what this is all about.

Part of me wants to know the answer

Part of me doesnt want it to end

Great job guys only 150 left. No way this will last until November 9th. Just have to wonder what our duty will be to do then.


Also I do not believe that this Ronnie is Jannisary James.
First Durga never mentioned anything about her. I know very limp but remember she started spouting off at the mouth about Jersey's Mother was having an affair as well as James James being a fake "reach down and all I get is lint". She has talked about and followed Jan for to long not to have noticed.

Second Ronnie is to quick to point out her intelligence. Even while getting mugged she is pointing out things about the mugger TO THE MUGGER.

Third once the cop kills the man he pulled over Jan is indeed upset (or seems so to me) as well as shocked.

well that is my two cents. If the Frankfort KY(not the jelly) axon is not hit by tomorrow I will get it then ( car problems)

Once again good job guys and girls lets get this Phase done and find out what there is to do next.

Thought I would try this again. The 404 Page story sounds a lot like pinocchio. Has anyone figured it out yet? The red balloons came from a previous story on the 404 error page.

Sorry if this has already been covered, but what is the deal with the green letters on the message on the opening screen? anyone tried to rearrange them to see if they are another message of some kind?

okay the jelly thing is a joke that I do. I live in Kentucky Louisville to be exact. Our postal code is KY which if you go to your nearest pharmacy is also a type of lubricating jelly.

Next no there are no new axons BUT there are some new .wav files. The file names are hidden in riddles that are placed inpictures throughout the site. go to some of the sites on the side bar to get the jist of what everyone is talking about also to keep up with what others are doing.

For those who don't check out the ARGN side of ILBs:
Enjoy these new WAVs courtesy of the people at the beekeepers blog (on Dana's Sidebar). I DO NOT take credit for finding these, I am simple reposting them for everyone to see.

MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY

"At night in the Earth's southern hemisphere, run an imaginary line along the axis of the Southern Cross to extend out about five times the length of that axis. Any landmark directly under that imaginary point will be in the general direction of south."

Any landmark.

Sandmark.

the sothern hemisphere to me makes me think of Africa (New Mombassa) and it also mentions sand (Sahara Desert)

Grifter has already posted links for the wavs. So I am not going to repeat the info. :)

We got a bunch of puzzles that people already solved. The answeres to the riddles ended up being the names of the new wav files. All of these new wavs related to Ronnie, her temporary job, and the offer to be a spy. We don't know how she fits in yet either.

Regarding the Red Balloons. If you were to type www.ilovebees.com/outbound/xyz.wav you would get an Error 404 page. These Error pages have contained pictures known as Killer.jpg which have coordinates and stuff embedded in them if you save them and open them up with notepad. We were getting those prior to each week's new set of axons.
Also on these Error Pages are some randome questions as well as some bizarre story by Perdita. Early on they mentioned red balloons, hence Dana's apprehension when she first saw the man drawing them.

Again I would suggest for those of you not on the chat. Download mIRC, join chat-solutions.org channel: #beekeepers. It's a much quicker way to find out a lot of this.

Those have to deal with a telephone. you start at zero : N is north or up the number dictates how many buttons you go up. : E: is East or right P: is position is the position of the letter corresponding with this button. This is just one of the many puzzle, riddles that others (NOT ME) have done to bring you the above .wav files. For the answer to this and to find the other riddles please go to the sites listed on the side bar you will find the answers there as well as be able to acknowledge the people who did solve these.

Wow i actually made it in!!! ok well, i have been majorly researching the site, i have been picking it apart and getting all of the sleeping princess's hidden messages. but i found one today that conused me even more then normal, "QUARANTINE - FRAGMENTED MEMORY
RESTORATION PHASE: 0 MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY
Gap in the clouds: head suddenly much clearer.
The spider is working on me. i must be in very bad shape.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.
MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY
All lost! To prayers, to prayers! All lost!
What, must our mouths be cold?
Arachne hung herself, you know. Take a hint already.

ok, i know i already posted and i dont wana be a nusience but i just fond somthing kind weird: in the wave your_first_mistake the guy um i think his name is kamal said "and computers are supose to be good at that..." an unknow voice says "its not the computer i'm worrying about" and nurga says "your first mistake.....) well on a infected page you can see something saying " Hi! Ignore the Pious Flea Play with me instead! Making a mistake is a good way to start!" is that a clue or am i getting into this too much?

12:54 PM  
Blogger GunSlinger7 said...

personally i think when it says "making a mistake is the way to play" i think it ment that making a mistake with the url was the first way to play cuz it sends you to a error 404 page that you can only get to by "making a mistake". STUPID ANNOYING FACT:
Durga can spell guard. WOW! That is just so amazing. I feel like I've just had a wet daydream. . .

2:01 PM  
Blogger Jimmy said...

I don't know if it has been cleared up yet or not, but I saw someone ask about the green text in the "error" message. If you just read it in order, seperating it out a bit, it says, "I found something for you," with the "you" being a link to the .wav files.



I would just like to add, as a personal note, that this is taking way too long. I checked here every day to see the events for a while, but it has just been too long and boring, and yielding no rewards thus far. Now I check every other day, at best.

But that's just my opinion.

oh well. that was the only axon in my driving range...

THERE IS A NEW KITTEN ON THE "CONTACT ME" PAGE
Or maybe I'm being stupid please tell me if there is a different kitten every day cause I don't check it that often and I'll take down this post.

If it IS new, then it doesn't seem like anything ANY of the programs would do. This is human interaction on the site? Who? Dana?

If you notice on this page:
http://ilovebees.com/humptydumpty.html
the files are in SP's order not the queens, but when you click on one; it says in the address bar what the real order is...

another thing I noticed, is that whoever pieced these together (I think Melissa) put emergency.WAV at the end of: Jersey: "Boy Meets Girl"
I wonder why...
----------------------

Hi Dana! if you read this I was just wondering how many e-mails you've receaved sense all this "buzz" (sorry, I'm running out of Bee jokes) started??? And how many you have replied to? Does the Sleeping Princess know your "new" e-mail address? Have you written her?

Dana, why does it still say: Days investigating: 50 ???
Did you forget again? :)

Well I hope your haveing a great vac.! Take lots of pics!

Those are the lyrics to a song called "99 red balloons" covered by Goldfinger but originally by a german chick called Nena. It was originally called "99 luft balloons" being sung in german and all :)

Nothing to do with ILB, just a kickass song

Wainamoinen his post about the 99 red balloons, is lyrics from a song that came out in the 80's, by Nena, is was german, but it also was translated into english. The song takes place during the cold war, a young child buys a bag of balloons, and sets them free at dawn, they show up on radar, and the general of an army lanches the nukes and it bring about the end of the world, pretty much.

Even though the Sleeping Princess has not asked us to do it again, has anyone tried to e-mail her the Time and GPS co-ordinates of an Axons that they intend to make hot? This might give the SP another chance to steal from the Queen and orgainze the Chapter Three stories on the Humptydumpty page.

This is for everyone's information.

Props goes out to Johnny Nitro for getting Thin_Kinkle today.

Also Props to Cortana, chappy, and Mikewas for getting a huge string of axons in DC that were right next to each other. Optical has no axons hot and they got five in a row firing it up today, Also they got more to light up uvular_implants!!

All BEES READ THIS. Don't stop getting axons even if we get all the waves. We are so close to 777 and want to push to get them before Tuesday, so we don't have to go through another set. As of this posting there are 704/777 hot, and at least 150 or more available. DON'T STOP! Keep up the good work and push hard.

Any CLUES as to what's going to happen when we heat up 777???

12:18 AM  
Blogger Wainamoinen said...

I have lots of spec. as to what will happen once we hit: 777, but it could be something nobody expected (kinda like with the timer countdown to the aug. 24), which is just as fun as knowing, if not better.
Everybody loves a suprise and most PMs know that. What ever happens I think I (and most likely you too) will injoy it.
Heck, I've loved this so far! I got to heat up 2 Axons! I'm way hooked!


peace out-

I think I shall side with the Covenant. Maybe they have good reason to want us exterminated...
I do not particularly find the human race very redeeming anyhow.

think about this:

*covenant attacked mankind without warning

*covenant released the flood

*covenant are relatively unadvanced, taking all their technology from forerunner artifacts.

*covenant live in a primitive caste system

*covneant have enslaved all the races(jackals, grunts, hunters, brutes...) to their will except elites and prophets

Someone mentioned sending email to make an axon hot. I plan on getting the Axon in Knoxville Saturday. Do I need to send email to someone first? And if so, who?

Sorry for all the question (I am new here) but someone also suggested downloading mIRC and I have downloaded mIRC and installed it, but cannot seem to join what I need to (chat-solutions.org). Could anyone give more detailed instructions on this?

I heated up the Paramus, NJ axon for POSTURE_COUNTS yesteday at 11:29 PDT. My plan was to go back upto Paramus again on Saturday and Heat up the axon for ALASKA at 7:29 PDT, but I just looked today and it's already heated up. Good thing I checked before taking the trip out there tomorrow morning. Glad to see there's someone else in NJ Axon hunting besides my friend and I. Whoever did heat it up, thanks. If there are new axons to heat up on Tuesday we should probably coordinate (i.e., you get one, I get another, etc.) so we can save each other some trips to the Paramus Park Mall :) Let me know what you think.

Wainamoinen,

The reason Emergency is at the end of SP ordered .wav files is because that's the only logical place to put it. When Jan's father says "I'll take care of it" it is very obvious that he's planning something. The very next .wav file is the police station, the very station they just left, on fire. It is obvious that the test records of Jan's would reveal something that her father didn't want found out and burned the place down to destroy Jan's records.

As to the whole Jan / Kamal sibling thing I believe it is quite obvious that Kamal's little sister was taken off to be a Spartan. Remember the people who Kamal's little sister said she saw sneaking around outside the house the night before "the accident". It makes sense.

Believe, I know these .wav files like the back of my hand. I have all of them ordered and burned on a CD and I go to sleep every night listening to the CD as it loops endlessly until I wake in the morning. These things are more or less in my head at all times now for I've been doing this for some time. I know these .wav files and I can tell you the Jan / Kamal sibling theory is the most logical way to connect the two.

Getting close now, incase anyone hasnt noticed there is three new axons on the recipe3 page. Seems to me that we learn more (in amount overall) from these individual axons compared to compiling all of the axons on the other pages and trying to piee a story together, that majority of the time dont tell us anything anyway.

714 and counting...... Home stretch.

Sorry for the double post, but I was reading on of the old 404 pages, where the Princess answers Wandering Angela question. She says 'I'm a lot older than I look'
which implies to me that we have already seen a picture of her and know who she is.

Maybe Dana's got some kind of wierd sleep alternate personalty, the sleeping princess.

Wow this website (sorry... publicity stunt) seems to be losing interest for most people. 74 posts and the thread's been up two days?! This is going nowhere interesting fast and has lost it's initial appeal. Looks like ILB has overstayed it's welcome. That countdown to wide awake resulted in audio clips. That are extrememly boring and don't reveal anything and certainly weren't worth the wait. Bungie, just stop this now. It's getting desperate.

First of all, deathgibbon, there is more to the haloverse than just the Chief shooting grunts. Some of us like a story to go with our action. Second, @Fazamacaz, time to step up to the plate! One of the recipe3 axons is right outside London! Welcome to the big leauges.

Hello again everyone. Just thought I would throw out some random things I noticed. I want to look at something the queen/operator put on ILB for all for us to ponder while we wait on 777. (This has been posted, but not looked at carefully on the blog).

Situation Analysis:

Waking up. Stay Awake.
I must compile a list of truths.

Assertions:
I am called the Operator. (QUEEN)
I have crash landed.
I must determine the cause of the accident that brought me to this time. (Present in OUR Time)
I have undergone severe memory loss. (SP, Pious Flea, & SPDR come in)
I must locate any surviving members of my crew. (Thinks this is us)
I have built a primitive network using the tools available. (Inside ILB)
I must seek the truth.
I hear a jumble of voices in my head. (AXONS!)
I will store copies of the voices for future analysis. (AXONS AGAIN!)


Conjecture:
The voices are in some way related to my accident.
Because of the damage, I am unable to accurately assess the nature of the voices.
By broadcasting the voices to my crew, they will be able to assess the damage.
Once assessed, the damage can be repaired. (777!)

So after jumbeling through my side notes, what I'm trying to say is when we hit 777 then the Queen/Operator will think she has gotten a hold of her crew and want to know how to repair the damage. More theories going through my head like Kamal and his sister (who I don't believe is Jan but may be the SP, I told this theory in earlier post). Also looking at the latest 404 page, I'm wondering if the end of SP's story relates to what might have happened to her. Perdita (that so is not how you spell her name!) is being transformed from a beautiful girl into a mechanical metal creature. Then the Clockwork Rat cuts her red balloon that was connected to a payphone so she can't get home. Just some food for thought. Also think we are going to need to know what the recipe 3 axons are talking about when we reach 777. It might be essential to repairing the Queen.

Everyone get back involved, you can't quit at the end of a race!

If you sit back and watch the problem, then you become part of the problem.

no one has thought of this which is surprizing
BTW i havent been able to post b/c everytime i try to i get a timed out response by f'in aol.but the cop touched on something he said she was pumped up with drugs when she was a baby.which makes me think she was kamals sister.if she was pumped up with drugs when she was a baby that means she was shot up in the HOSPITIAL.and then her family thought she was sick when she was actually starting to react to the drugs.im assuming the drugs werent meant to work until a certain age like 5 or 6 going back to the books john(MC)was kidnapped at the age of 6.so she was gonna be kidnapped then when she saw the men but i guess someone came outside and screwed it up
so when she got sick(drugs starting to work)they (gov't) transferred he out and told her family she died
that was the cover up story

You were correct on your last post, except at the end part:

I hear a jumble of voices in my head. (AXONS!)
I will store copies of the voices for future analysis. (AXONS AGAIN!)

I thought the same think when I first read that, but I think she means the voices of the WAV files...

You can find the story on any of the "Error" pages of the site.

http://www.ilovebees.com/a.html or anything like that.

As for the story, I saw a few spelling errors ("phone boot" instead of "phone booth" and "hand" instead of "had"). They don't look like they could mean anything, so I'm just going to assume it was hurried, or someone just forgot the spell checker :-P
If someone wants to try to determine if they mean anything, by all means.

Still no axons in or around Buffalo, NY for at least an hr or two.

47 to go as of post. Keep up the good work gang!

Devotion to Durga
Doctrines The Devimahatmya makes clear the theology of Durga. She pervades the cosmos and creates, maintains, and periodically destroys it in accord with the rhythm of Hindu cosmology. When cosmic balance is threatened, Durga manifests in different forms to protect the world. She is thus the upholder and guardian of dharma, cosmic order. In this she is like a female version of Vishnu, for the concept of a deity descending to the world when it is necessary to maintain dharma is central to Vaishnavism. Similarly, Durga creates, maintains, and destroys the world like Vishnu. The Devimahatmya tells of three cosmic interventions by Durga on behalf of the gods: the battle with Madhu and Kaitabha, the battle with Mahisa as a buffalo-demon, and the battle with Sumbha and Nisumbha. Durga's name means "Beyond Reach," and she rides a lion to defeat the armies of the antigods. To fulfil this role as a great cosmic warrior Durga is created by the gods to act for them.
Durga is not only a powerful force for cosmic order. She also listens to her devotees and attends to their needs. The Devimahatmya describes her as a personal saviour who will save her devotees from forest fires, wild animals, robbers, imprisonment, execution, and battle.
Durga is identified with the important philosophical concepts of shakti, maya, and prakrti. Shakti is the power of the divine, personified as a goddess. Without this the male deity is ineffective. Durga personifies maya, meaning both delusion and creation, and both creates the world and bewitches the creatures she has created. There is an element of divine lila, play, as in the calmness with which she defeats the buffalo-demon. Prakrti is the physical world and its rhythms. The Devimahatmya states that Durga is the world. "As immanent in the world Durga is equated with the earth. As transcendent, she is the heavenly queen who descends from time to time to maintain harmony on earth" (Kinsley 1986, 105). As the earth, Durga is identified with creation and the growth of vegetation and crops.

History Durga originated among the non-Aryan peoples of India. Early references place her in wild regions such as the Vindhya Mountains and with tribes such as the Sabaras and Pulindas. With this background she becomes associated with the non-Aryan habits of drinking alcohol and blood and eating meat. Durga's association with agriculture, especially in her major festival, the Durga Puja, may arise from her early origins. She is the power inherent in the growth of crops and in all vegetation.
Durga becomes an important figure only in the early centuries CE, being praised in hymns in the Mahabharata, but these may be late interpolations. Around the fourth century CE images of Durga killing a buffalo become common throughout India. After the sixth century and into the medieval period Durga was well-known and popularly worshipped. In the classical texts, the Puranas, dating from the third to the fifteenth centuries, her mythological exploits are recounted. An entire Purana, the Devibhagavatam, is dedicated to Durga. The most important text is the section of the Markandeya Purana called the Devimahatmya, of possibly the seventh century, which is also known as the Durgasaptasati or Candimahatmya. This text is so venerated that every verse is considered a mantra, sacred utterance, of the Goddess.
The Devimahatmya tells of Durga's battle and defeat of the buffalo-demon Mahisa. A long war was going on between the gods led by Indra and the antigods. The genie Mahisa was king of the antigods. He won the war and installed himself in heaven, while the gods wandered homeless on earth. Shiva and Vishnu then guided the gods to concentrate their powers, which came from their mouths as jets of fire uniting into a blazing sphere. This took the shape of a goddess, whose head was formed from the power of Shiva, the hair from Yama, the arms from Vishnu, the breasts from the Moon, the waist from Indra, and the feet from Brahma. Riding a lion she went to defeat the armies of the antigods. She fought Mahisa, who took many forms. Finally he became a buffalo, symbol of death. Durga pierced the throat of the buffalo, and when Mahisa tried to escape from the animal, she cut off his head. The gods were then restored to heaven. The myth of Durga slaying the buffalo-demon may be a northern adaptation of Korravai, the Tamil goddess of the mountains, who was a goddess of war and victory and to whom buffaloes were sacrificed.
Durga has always been associated with military success. In the Mahabharata she helps the Pandava brothers and in the Ramayana assists Rama in defeating Ravana. In festivals associated with military success, Durga has been invoked to bless weapons and bestow victory. The tradition of sacred swords arose in more recent centuries; these are given to rulers by the Goddess.

Symbols Images of Durga usually have three eyes. There can be four, eight, ten, eighteen, or twenty arms. The most common objects held in the hands are a conch, discus, trident, bow, arrow, sword, dagger, shield, rosary, wine cup, and bell. Her hair is in karandamukuta, a crown style. She wears gorgeous red clothes and several ornaments, and stands on a lotus or the head of a buffalo or rides a lion. There are endless aspects of Durga described in the Puranas and Agamas and the iconography is consequently very varied. In South Indian images she can sit in sukhasana posture on a double lotus throne and wear a garland of skulls.
The most important form of Durga is as Mahisasuramardini. The image is of the Goddess cutting off the head of the buffalo-demon. The most common number of arms on this image are eight or ten, and the hands hold weapons and a lotus. Mahisa, the demon, may be shown half emerging in his human form from the carcass of his former buffalo form. At the Durga Puja, the most important festival of Durga, she is shown with four deities, Karttikeya, Ganesha, Sarasvati, and Lakshmi, who are identified as her children. During the festival the iconographical details of the images are faithful to Durga Mahisasuramardini, Durga slaying the buffalo-demon, as described in the Devimahatmya and other texts. Clay images of Durga are made and presented with offerings and on Vijayadasami, the "Victorious Tenth Day," the images are taken in a parade to a river or tank and immersed as they are now lifeless.
Durga's association with war has caused a tradition in which she is worshipped in the form of a sword.
During the Durga Puja, which is partly a harvest festival, a central object of worship is the navapattrika, a bundle of nine different plants which is identified with Durga. The Goddess is also identified with a ghata, pot, containing edible fruits and plants from the navapattrika together with Ganges water. The pot is set on moist dough scattered with the seeds of five grains. The priest recites a prayer identifying the pot with amrta, the immortal nectar of the gods. Durga as the pot symbolises the power of growth of the grains and the source of the power of life which gave the gods immortality.

I think the story on the 404 Page is a story of Jan...there are many parallels...she was taken or "lost" at a young age like Peredita, the Clockwork Rat could be the "Detective", trying to get Jan to forget her real family, thus uncovering more of her abilities (i.e.-Peredita slowly being changed into a machine by CWRat), the red baloons are the killings the Detective causes her to do, and the CWRat (Detective) is covering up the killings (re: CWRat cutting the balloons free, so Peredita/Jan can't find her way back to her family/herself respectively)...
or I could be wrong...

Hello. I am new to posting although I have read every post since the beginning and have been keeping a close eye on ilovebees.com. I have yet to heat an AXON but if there are more on tuesday I shall do everything in my power to heat one. I think when we are done heating the AXONS a bungie guy will post a comment asking all of us who heated an AXON to give the name of the AXON we heated and our address. Then he will send us a question about the AXON we heated and if we answer correctly he will send us an early copy of Halo 2. Just a thought.

I doubt that Bungie would send the axon-heaters a copy of Halo 2, because it's not exactly fair on those who didn't have an axon within their area.

I think we'll have to do something else once we reach 777, hopefully not more axons!!!

1:50 PM  
Blogger GodIsWatching said...

The whole idea that they'll give out an early Halo 2 is complete bull crap. Bungie has on multiple occasions said they are not done. I for one don't completely believe this, but it would be moronic to relase a game early and forego the possibility to polish the game. Bungie achieved what they wanted to with ilovebees, a massive online and realtime ad and a way to keep non-halo fans and halo fans alike busy. The whole thing was an ad and that is it. It was an awesome ad nonetheless.

Oksy, whoever just posted about going to all of the killer.jpg axon coordinates and not having them ring. They won't ring. Those are the coordinates for the ones coming out on tuesday. When those first started showing up the SP told us she's been able to get advances looks at the Queen's "roads" that are under construction(meaning axons that aren't up yet). She puts those there for you axon hunters to plan out the axons to hit that come up on tuesday so you can get there as early as possible tuesday without having to check here for the update, so we have a better shot at getting them all.

Axon-Hunters, we can only assume that since we have not met the required 777, that come Tuesday morning, there will be yet another set of axons to activate. If everything remains the same as it has been, then we can expect the times/coordinates to be the same as the ones in the latest killer.jpg pics.

@Guard1an:

Good eye. I was too busy searching for my one lonely axon here in Dothan, AL, that I didn't notice that it's a re-timed set from this week. (...if it indeed is, I still haven't compared the two...)

It's nice of Dana to provide the Tools section for the noobs, but I keep getting the feeling that most of the important info is having a "trickle-down" effect.

As of post, we have 30 more axons to go. Don't make this go another week people. We have all fought hard to make it this far, and the end is now in sight. Some have been whining about people losing interest. Well, I'm pretty sure once we hit 777, things will get more interesting again.

"the half-life of CP ancestor packets that squeak and rustle around me like the thin cries of the dead.

First stage is always to wet the system. Sink in, like the blood Odysseus spilled; give the ghost of myself a voice and use it. Mayday, Mayday, Mayday.

If you want to shout for help when help is a long way away, you need two things: a voice, and a mechanism for transmitting it.

Neither of these things so easy to make out of sand and luminescence.

Voice not completely necessary for the purest form of data transmission, of course. But it's a multi-purpose tool: not just signaling, but key for psy-ops and undercover work. "A pleasing voice is the single most important component to a UI that will engender trust and confidence in a ship's crew." Can't remember who said that, now. Or when.

Shipwrecked sailor. (The young stage of a bee found him, the clever one, adrift on a wine-dark sea, but I can't remember her name.)

I love bees.

Perhaps later I will build a ship. First, I am building a voice.

Try to talk.

Nope.

No. Tongue cut out. (Can't remember her name either.) I love bees. Find myself longing to speak again: words like stones or rain. Better made physical.

All right. Old joke:

Marine: Damn right, I'm running away! There's two of us, alone, on foot, no weapons, and four hundred Covies on the other side of that hill. What are you going to do, tough guy--field-rig a railgun out of a rubber band and my dental fillings?

So: what fillings can I twist out of my environment? Open my mouth and...

Old throat flexing. Trying to remember. My real voice stolen, and in its place this changeling child, pulled together from leaves and sticks, pulled together, falling apart, pulled together again. Not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church door, but it will serve.

I will keep working through the drone and hum of busy days, counting down until the Revelation comes and I will speak in tongues of flame, a dark dove descending.

If I can learn to talk again, I will need to field-rig a way to make that talking heard. Rummaging around in the shotgunned remains of my memory turns up hints and rumors, mostly, e.g.... "When I was [DATA MISSING] I [DATA MISSING] big lump of crystal and wrapped a wire [DATA MISSING] voices! It was like a total magic trick to me. She was always doing stuff like [DATA MISSING]" The Castaway had some connection there: sending out signals to confuse the enemy. Details unclear.

Of course, it is not my mission to confuse the enemy. It is my mission to reveal the truth.

Hm. Attempt.

Definite No.

Keep working. Every day I get bigger, smarter, stronger. I'll figure it out.

To this end, I have also managed to escape from the Spider. It has become clear to me that its arbitrary tyranny over me was based on inadequate principles, on a flawed understanding of the "

Just a couple of theories I've been thinking about the SP's recent post finishing the perdita story. I'm assuming it must be analagous to something here or something we're doing. First idea: Perdita is Dana, she's in China try to find a place unfamiliar, or where she's unfamiliar. Perdita ended up far from home and when she finally looked at herself in the mirror she became very unfamiliar. Maybe Dana's journey is not such a good idea. It's been thrown around before, but maybe one of the AI's we're dealing with (or THE AI with it's various subroutines) is created from Dana's real I (as in intelligence). If so could it be that Dana get's used to make this AI by as ghastly a method as Perdita? Hopefully Dana's not in any troube.
Second idea: Dana isn't related to the AI, but Perdita's story is that of the Sleeping Princess. Haven't thought about that one as much.
Third idea: Perdita's our AI, we're the red ballons. If we can't help the AI find it's way home (whatever that means exactly for her)before the clockwork rat (pios flea?) turns her into something similar to himself, we the balloons will get cut from the payphones/axons. If that happens before our audio story ends remains to be seen, but perhaps it's inevitable. If the balloons don't represent us and just represent the axons, maybe the fact that we are answering all this phones is keeping Perdita's family/the AI's crew from finding her and bringing her home. Her father's job probably fits in there somewhere as well.
Kinda convoluted, but maybe someone can build off of it if it's usefull. And if anyone finds reason from this to see fit to email Dana to warn her of possible danger or ask the SP if she has knows of any connection she might have to dana, please do.....just give me a little credit in there:)

I checked the maps, and I know I'll be a few streets away from the Burlington axon on Friday, and if I can finagle my mom into stopping at the University Mall the same day, I can possibly get the South Burlington axon as well.

Times and stats for both will be most appreciated.

If anyone can also supply me with times and stats for the other 4 Vermont axons, I'll see what I can do to scour up some help.

To burkhimer

To be honest, I seriously doubt we're going to get any kind of playable demo disc. Demo discs are for the main purpose of promoting a game, getting people to have interest in purchasing it....it's a marketing technique. Bungie and Microsoft, as well as the rest of the world, knows that Halo 2 is going to be the biggest selling game of all time. They know that it is huge, most people know how the general gameplay is, and if there are any new upgrades and surprises in the game that they want us to know about, then we already know about them. They dont need a demo disc to sell the game.

I have to say that I agree with everyone that hitting the 777 is just going to get us to a new step of the game. I hope it's something HUGE that will get everyone's interest back, because most people have seemed to quit, which is very disapointing. *shrugs* But yeah nonetheless I feel that this "roadblock" of sorts will just be a new step.

Anyhow, for our sake, I hope you're right.

From the looks of them, they are getting VERY halo related: (see axon named: on_reach)

Any real halo fan knows what Reach is.

Lets inhotenate them!!

Alright guys. I can most likely snag the Burlington axon (Housekeeping) on Friday, and MAY be able to finagle a mall trip for the South Burlington axon (The_Glassworks) on Wednesday. No promises on that second one (I won't be able to snag both on Friday, as I wouldn't make it in time).

EST times for both would be greatly appreciated (I have no idea how to translate PDT times). Will be waiting patiently for this week's question and answer.

Okay, I'm gonna try and snag my very first axon. I want to double check before I try this. When the phone rings I answer "Hello" and give the password "Operator" when promted right? Please correct me if I've gotten something wrong here. Thanks.

supposedley its "what ship did i operate on?" or something... so the answer would be "the apocalypso".

SEEKING!

these will be unlocked after 777 is reached?

maybe they are the CONCLUSIONS to each chapter of these stories?

maybe how they all converge?

i know one person in portsmouth and one person in birmingham so... nowhere near london.

i wish i knew somebody down there.

i had an idea of somehow getting the number (if its possible) and phoning it myself.some random picks up... and i tell them the time to be there the next day.haha.

yeah pretty stupid idea.

Today, my friends, we activate 777 axons. My prediction for what happens after that:

WE GET 7777 MORE AXONS!!!


Just kidding. Here's hoping for something awesome!

alright, finally. Anyhoo.
This might be useless,but here goes.
Janasserie James is the girls name, right? I mention it because it sounds like Jenna Jameson. Porn queen, ya know. Anyway: John Statten was once asked about his influences on the cinematography by EGM, to which he responded (jokingly?) "Well, I watch alot of porn?" Jenna could possibly have influenced Jans characteristics. I have no question whole thing is mostly John's baby.

Also, what does the phrase "I have found something for you" mean? It appears in green letters in the transmitting block when you enter ilovebees, but you have to put it together. Did I miss something?

Ok, so we have new marching orders.

The axons that are listed as SEEKING, perhaps we have to send (e-mail) the operator the Time and location for the Payphones which will "enhottenate" those axons.

ALSO send the codename of those axons, so that the Operator knows which ones you are specifiing the time and location for.

For instance send and e-mail in the following format:

Codename Time GPS Cordinates of the payphone
on_reach 24:00 PDT GPSCordinate1 GPSCordinate2

You MUST make sure that the payphone CAN ACCEPT INCOMING CALLS!!!

In this way we get to pick where the axon is and what time the rings. thus all the people that complain (like myself) can specify where the axon is.


Just a thought. It always seems that the ones that just have 1 axon have better information.

I’ve been watching this unfold since near the beginning. It seems the interest behind this has died a touch but not enough to kill things. I have been unable to pry myself from the dungeon of work otherwise I could have activated a few of the Axon myself. To all the Axon hunters: Damn good work. Not long until 777 who knows what we will see.
To all those intelligence agents: Keep thinking, some of your ideas have been as vital as activating the Axons.

despot101: No, it doesn't. The green "you" in the TRANSMITTING message is underlined, indicating that it's a link. If you click it, you go to http://www.ilovebees.com/humptydumpty.html. This page has the .wav files from each week's main files (facts, hivekuts, and fable) in order. Your link of http://www.ilovebees.com/ihavesomethingforyou.html is just the 404 page (you get it whenever you try to go to a page that doesn't exist--for example, WTF.html--which is how the Sleeping Princess plays her games with us ^__^).

It works like this, people:

The Operator uses a 24-hour clock aka "military time".

0:00 = Day's beginning (midnight)
6:00 = 6:00 AM
12:00 = noon
18:00 = 6:00 PM
24:00 = day's end (midnight)

The Operator also posts times in PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) format. Unless you live on the West Coast, you may need to convert.

MDT (Mountain Daylight Time) adds 1 hour
CDT (Central Daylight Time) adds 2 hours
EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) adds 3 hours

So if you fid yourself stuck in Omaha, NE with a 14:32 PDT axon (I made it up), first convert from the 24-hour clock (remove 12 hours if time is over 13:00). That gives you 2:32 PDT. Then allow for time zone differences (CDT adds 2 hours). Voila! Your axon is at 4:32 PM.

Oh snap! As of this posting we have 6 more to go!!!

Great job beekeepers!!!! This is freaking impressive!!

Props to everyone who has lit an axon and gone out of their way for our fun little game!

But its not over yet!!!

I'm thinking that once we hit 777 the SEEKING axons will all go hot.

I realized a creepy theory...
I was watching "Signs" yesterday (the alien movie with Mel Gibson) and I was reminded a lot of ILB. If you have seen the movie, you will understand this better. The part where the family goes to town, and Merrill goes into the army recruitment office, the guy behind the desk hits it right on the nose. He says he has seen this type of activity before (the reason behind the signs being made in the fields). Says it is a covert recon op (or something along those lines). Where the enemy spies on us. They don't hurt anybody because they don't want to draw attention to themselves. They are just here to gather strategical info, as in attack points. Turns out that is what happened. The enemies ships gathered above the various crop signs before the invasion began. What if (this DOES seem a little far fetched, but WAHT IF...) this is what is happening here?? I mean it does kind of make sense. Durga is actually a covenant AI sent here to spy on us, to determine the best strategical strike point? I mean we already know she is awesom at spying as she has shown us with all of the info she dug up on Jan James, and in one of the new .wav's (week1subject2 or something) she even says so herself (with the use of a voice clip from the cop interrogating Jan). She may be the one calling all the payphones, looking for the best target for the first strike. She gave us all of the codewords and stuff because she is in control of ILB.com. she hooked us right from the start making us think she was on our side. The sleeping princess however is probably the one that is on our side. She talks about being in the glass coffin (crychamber), and is most likely the one that crashed with the apocalypso, thus breaking open her cryochamber with the impact of the crash. Maybe Durga was on that ship too. maybe she was in their ships computer system, spying on them. It is also entirely possible that she was the reason for the crash. Either because she made the ship crash directly, or somebody found her in the system, and knew what she was doing. Then they intentionally crashed the ship to try to destroy Durga or to keep her from getting control of the ship. Now, when the phones are ringing and the "Operator" asks us what ship we are from, and our response is "Apocalypso", that is Durga's way of getting us to feel more comfortable helping her. Getting us to beleive that we are helping the Operator to remember more, like the name of the ship she was on, but we are actually aiding Durga (the enemy) in her spying. By her giving us hope that we are helping somebody, that makes us want to do it more. Anybody think one of the last coordinates might be near or in a city/town named Troy?? I mean in all of America, there has got to be someplace named Troy... i know the hole in my theory is that the operator's name is Melissa, and not Durga, but Durga says she does not know her name, or anything about herself. Old army tactic. When you are behind enemy lines, you know nothing-->you don't tell the enemy anything about yourself, group, mission, nothing. That way we won't give them any info they can use against us. There is no reason/evidence that can/does prove that Durga is NOT Melissa.

I posted this in the last thread just before Dana posted this thread. I feel my theory still holds some ground...at least for now.
