being persuaded to come back

5913 miles is a long way to go just to keep thinking about the same problem.

More than 1000 emails tell me you're still thinking about it, too.

Hi Dana,
How are your travels on the other side of the globe? I hope you're enjoying your vacation... but it must be hard knowing in the back of your mind what kind of a situation things are in back at home. (That's why you're checking your e-mail, isn't it?)


You can't run… and we can't hide. It knows our names, our addresses, it's going to reach out and touch us and guess what happens then? You'll have to go further than China to get away from this one, Dana. When it metastasizes, we're *all* going to get a good long look at it.
There's hope here. There's someone trying to help here. But she's alone and afraid, she knows what's going on but, my dear, she's only going to talk to *you*. Aren't you glad? The Princess wants you in her court. The Queen wants you dead. You're our ace in the hole. One more draw and we get a royal flush.

I hear you.

The tables have turned. Now, we need *your* help. If this thing spreads ...who knows what havoc may erupt. And yikes!... It's got my email address... a possible window into my computer ??!?!... and into *all* the computers of people who only wanted to help you. Help us, Dana...... I hope you're reading this.

I'm reading it.

I was scared but if we're in it together, well… I'd rather be scared in company.

So I'm back in: as cuddly as the cat and as charming as the butterfly, from a hostel in Beijing.

In the meantime I will check in as often as I can and wait the nerve-wracking, tedious wait with you until whatever is going to begin on the 24th begins.

P.S. Keeping things in perspective is good, lol. Thank you, "Dan".

Dana, so good to hear your voice again, er... Read your keyboard again! ;) How are your Aunt and your Mother? And how is the Asian excursion so far?

There've been a lot of strange things happening since you left, but I think you're already clued in on them... Is there a message we could give the Princess for you?

Oh! I almost forgot! We figured out something while you were gone--

We know why this AI is after you. When you tried to fix the site, it thought you were attacking it... I'm not sure whether this means you should leave the site alone or wipe it clean, but let's just hope this thing hasn't already gotten loose...

Also, the whole fiasco has made you (and undoubtably your aunt) very popular.

Welcome back Dana. It seems from your blog that you have been enlightened on all that has been happening the last few days. I believe you should send an e-mail to your Aunt Margaret's e-mail address. The Sleeping Princess that has control of it has been saying she wanted to get in contact with you. So here is hoping she has good news.

Dana, does that mean you're coming back home? or are you just going to keep up with this from beijing? Anyways, I think we're all really sorry that you had to be pulled away from your trip in order to deal with this, but we all think that this is necessary for the time being. Glad you're back! In the meantime, you should send an email to the ladybee777 account letting the entity know you're here again (it's been using that account to communicate to us). It has a secret that it might reveal to us now that you're back. It seems to have an affinity to you and says it's getting lonely now that you're gone. Anyways, take care!

I’m sorry to continue bothering you with questions—especially while you’re supposed to be on vacation. But I just have one question for you: Do you know anything about the email that was sent out from your aunt's email address?

At first I figured it was just a result of the same virus that’s been spreading thought Aunt Margaret’s website, but I noticed some curious similarities between two line’s in you blog text and two lines from the cryptic email I received.
Here is a portion of the email I received:

"Chapter II. Dana friendless and alone
Dana a friend/good guy.
Dana is not an artificial being. nor is she a program. She is human. She is flesh and blood.
You're as cuddly as the cat
You're as charming as the butterfly"

The fact that you refer to yourself in the same manner that the writer refers to you in the email means you must know something… Is there any explanation you can provide as to the purpose and/or meaning of the outlandish email sent out from Aunt’s email? This whole situation has me a bit on edge…

I read that site again (I'd read it earlier and mostly dismissed it) and now that I've read it a second time with your request I have to ask: do we have any concrete evidence that this is real? Or is this a red herring? The picture at the very bottom seems like it's got some of the same 'text encoded in the picture' glitches as some of the other sites but I don't have the tools to decode it.

In any case... supposing it's real, there's two possible postulations.
1: I believe at some point someone mentioned a second AI involved in all this. (I believe this was mentioned on Could it be using SPDR as a fall guy to spread itself over the net?
2: If it's the SPDR itself that created that site, then I tend to agree, yes, it's hostile and more than likely a 'bad guy'. But here's the thing - without it, how can Melissa be healed/fixed? Also, why, exactly, would a basic repair program like SPDR have its own AI like that? One capable enough of apparently going crazy and determining that 'we needed a new leader'? I mean... with a little reading of the hidden email, I get the nervous feeling that the SPDR AI might have caused the problems/destruction of the ship.

I feel like I'm going very far afield here, and probably I am. But I see things like this and it demands that I ask these questions... just because I wonder if anyone else had asked them, and because I don't know how to anwser them myself. In any case, if at any time you think it's a good idea, just disregard what I say - all I'm doing is asking questions. *grin*

Your humble servant,
Pratz Strike

Welcome back, I would like to say that I've looked at your site and I could even fix this site its just added html and its easy to make images like that and do you realy think a large corperation like Microsoft would let something like this in one of there official trailers to a game that is very popular then say that the website does not exist. You know how much trouble you can get into hacking into someones website and there is enough evidence to say that microsoft and bungie did this so if it was real there would be major lawsuits.

PS. How could a little web site handle this much traffic you would have to pay lots of money for the banwidth and if you did get this much with the lots of money you would need why do you need that much with a site that sells honey.

I don't know but can someone help me figure this one out? Brandyn has been helping but I think we are missing something.

We found this link hidden in a few posts

Then Brandon figured out if you look at page seven that the guy has some numbers on his back and they are in this long hallway talking about acceptable losses. I can only imagine they are meaning the people of earth. Like the bees site stated before about evacuating everybody then I noticed that on the making of the comic page theres an interview going on and suddenly out of nowhere the guy asking questions just asks if he beat halo on legendary and when he answers but of course they move on as if nothing was out of the ordinary! But also look at the image on that page! HALO is in the upper right hand corner! I'm trying to figure out the music part. I know that 777 is 21 so that part is right

Please, if I am right just say something.

1) bungie is posting the first 20 or so posts to keep intrest in this site and they have now added user names to be less... noticeable... like they were with the first posts when "dana" first posted an update.

2) those are clueless tards at the top ^

i dont know if the 24th is the demo release or maybe even an early release (pre-order or all) and i can assume that 4 days from now, halo 2 should be compleat. and i also think the 24th is the production date for halo 2 "physical". i dont know... but now i have a useless blog.

Hello Dana. I've been following your predicament, and I have a few ideas I want to bring to your attention. First, a few people here have suggested unplugging the computer. I'm curious - what would happen if you turned off the server the website was being hosted on, unplugged it from the internet, and then removed and destroyed all the storage media? Somewhat catastrophic, and I'm not sure if you have access to the server anyway, but this could be a viable option for destroying this rogue AI.

That solution, of course, would be a last resort. But there is another way. What if you attempted to make contact? From what we've seen, the AI believes you're trying to kill it, and is trying to act in self-defense. Maybe there's a way to place a message in the source code of your site, explaining what's happening.

Blogger Koretsu said...

Good news for ARGer's (If you don't know, don't ask) bad news for just about everyone else.... It's been determined (with 95% assurance) that the medium metastasizing refers to the internet. What that means is that next tuesday, more sites will become "Infected" by Princess, Queen, Spider, and Flea. If this is true, we're going to get a large number of more clues...
And it's good to see you back, Dana! We've been worried about you. Stay safe, and don't worry about The_Sleeping_Princess.... Far as we can tell, she's on your side. I'm not sure if you recieved a copy of the email see sent, but she has a secret she wants to tell you. See here.

Good to see that you're back again. Remember what I said about attempting to communicate with whatever it is that has taken over your site. Perhaps you should leave a message on the sites main page or any of the pages for a matter of fact. I think there is something in the page trying to help you, but it's fighting something trying to harm you. Don't try any more wipes, anti-virus' or cleans. Keep in touch. Keep helping us help you.

"Eve" would be the princess, waiting and sleeping, dana is the widow, and her mother is the queen. i know you wont find anything about her mother being a queen, but the site has yet to give us unused info.
wait....dana is the widow, she is trying to rebuild the "queen" website, Eve is the AI keeping her from doing this. the staff of the story the widow never used her staff, so keep an eye out on those sites about some sort of staff.

6:26 PM

Wait wait. If the Varroa = the flood...

and the bees equal some form of Master AI system...

And The Varroa harm Bees, or at least disable them...

Could it be hinting that the flood infested an AI program, making itself Aritificial? In 4 days it will grow strong enough to get out of it's AI capsule, or 'a head full of sand/silicone'?

Just a thought, but is this hinting towards a part of the story line like the Cortana letters in Halo regarding 343 Guilty Spark?

6:26 PM  
Blogger jthm81 said...

i'm almost positive about the varroa thing because they used the word infestation and that's definitely halo... a lvl i think

6:28 PM  
Blogger Torez said...

I think I just found a clue to something that links all this to Bungie even more. Check this I just found,

'343 = 7*7*7, so 343 was bound to crop up somewhere, and the fact that it does so at more than one point in Halo's development is more likely evidence of Bungie's continuing obsession with the number 7 then evidence of far-reaching early character development.'

So bungie have always liked the number 7, eh?

Ever noticed one of the post titles here,

'Ladybee777 “odd behavior cry for help”'

The three seven's. Odd, hm?

I'm still a sceptic to all of this. I don't believe any of this is true. I mean, how can it be? And the clues are slapping us in the face!

Bungie did this exact thing for Halo one, and they did hint that they would do something like this.

I mean, what about the hidden message written to Dana in one of the images, stating that she shouldn't worry and that the writer could apply a construct to protect her core? There! 2 words that tie directly in with the Halo series...

as the world sleeps, I am alive.
The next person to come along might find it worthwhile to see the letter and do comparasons. Balance, read, and you can even enforce logic (If you like to use that)
And last but not least, try to contact "Dana". If you can, ask her Questions that might be important.
I would appriciate that

Hello Dana, good to hear from you. Hope you get home soon to clear the mess up!. Did you know that while you were away, a couple of us received spam from a similar account like yours only from yahoo, sending information trying to relate to a Halo storyline. We traced the spammers location to Luisiana, i think... lol.

He was at a university's domain...

Nevertheless, it's good to hear from you.

Blogger v7--i--q4--2k4 said...

youre blog is back online b+w!!

btw dont expect dana to post here again - this update from her was only because bungie realised that the
ilovebees 'emergency exit' and thus the blog itself was loosing momentum [the whole last eight of the blog was dominated bye just me neo and black and white most of the time].

all we can do now black and white is play the wating game for spdr to unseal the princess on the 24th

oh and when i said QueenDana was metastatising she already is but the TIMER for the metastatise is for this site only - in a few days time DO NOT post here unless you have some of the top firewall programs in the world installed - also when I mean the site itself metastatises [spreads] it means other sites will morph into ilovebees

There is no advice I can give you that hasn't already been given. All I can suggest to you is that you get a large hand-held weapon of some kind, and maybe a tank, and turn the server of ilovebees into a smoldering pile of dust and mangled metal.

I'm here to offer a different view on this.

Consider the possibility that 'Dana' wasn't part of the story, unless she is the Bystandard (I'll explain later)isn't it wholely possible that the story has nothing to do with earth, maybe Ilovebees being the 'host' site for the Operator was just random.

If this is the case then wouldn't Melissa (Operator) be the queen? and SPDR would be the widow trying to bring her back? Now that Melissa has some functions back (sight obviously) she searched the source code of ilovebees and got Aunt M's name and info?

In that situation, Melissa would think that Aunt M is the Assassin, not Dana, that would explain the initial take over of ladybee777 and deletion of mail. When the site metastasize(s) we may get more info that correlates to the story, so be looking for a sacrifice of one of Melissa's own for the Manticore, and something that could pertain to the pious flea. I have a feeling that he is important.

As for the Sleeping Princess, I agree that we can not rule her out as a possible AI for SPDR, but then my whole story would have been a waste of time. B+W, if you would like to add and refine this version of events, feel free, until then, we wait three more days.

But, what do I know, I thought of this in the last ten minutes of my consiousness last night, and I'm only a fourteen year old geek...

2:36 PM  
Blogger Human_Plague said...

sorry for double posting, but I just read something on the site that I find relavent, HIDE AND SEEK! maybe this has to do with information gathering skills that allowed the operator to find Dana, and maybe something else, but in case it hasn't played out it's full meaning yet,don't forget it. If Melissa's AI's favorite game is Hide and Seek then it is a very advanced AI and we should look vigilantly for any new monologue entries after the tenth.

I honestly think that some people are looking too deep into this. I read earlier that the B could stand for Bungie. That is a possibility but... the B could stand for bitch or it could stand for brought. Everything that you find doesn't have to be that deep. I think people should take a look more at the stuff on the outside instead of looking at source code and stuff.

I understand that exomniac (hope spelling is right) and I know that is why that conclusion was reached but I dont understand why everything that is discovered is linked to Bungie or Halo. I mean obviously it was in a Halo 2 trailer but EVERYTHING that you see doesnt have to be linked to it.
Just another point

4:23 PM  
Blogger JamesHetfield said...

After refreshing multiple times I noticed that the honey page started to look fu**ed up. I looked around and saw some white stretched text and some black stretched (literally). I did that trick on the back of cereal boxes that says to look straight down on the text and you can read it... well I did that on the lower white text and I could read Napa Valley, CA. I hope this is new. If you dont believe me then try that trick. If you dont understand how to do it then I will describe it again if you just post something asking how to do it.
Like i said sorry if it isnt new but I sure hope it is.

Hm...What's in San Francisco and Beijing? Bungie's once again officially said there won't be a Halo 2 demo, so I think August 24 might either have something to do with Xbox Magazine's Holiday issue or Halo 2 going gold.

On the other hand, considering the locations mentioned (Bungie's located in Washington, not San Francisco and I remember hearing something about Microsoft negotiating some things with China), maybe this situation has less to do with Halo 2 than it does with Microsoft. Could this be a promotional tactic leading up to information on the Xbox Next? After all, Microsoft does own Bungie. Hm....any thoughts? Can't wait to see what happens on the 10th....

If you really think about it, this really has nothing to do with halo or posible even halo 2 other than the fact it was displayed for a seconds notice after the trailor of halo 2.

And after August 24th... maybe it has estimated that we will have it's attention. Maybe... 9 billion something... didn't Troy have some guys on it that had to make that decision? that would affect 9 billion people? Maybe that's how many people could be killed...

Hey -

just to dispel doubt, anybody who says it's nothing to do with halo 2 is freakin' kidding themselves. The trailer and the tee shirts/mugs/etc? (Check out if you don't know what the crap I'm talking about). I mean, the text/logo design on the shirt is in the Halo font.

And if it's just a marketing ploy, who cares; full marks to Bungie for the creative advertising campaign. It's awwwsome. Personally, I'm hopin' for an earlier release date. Screw November! I want it now!

A military force established by deception of sense that you deceive enemies so that they do not know your real condition, and that they can establish supremacy. It is mobilized by a game in a sense that it goes into action when it sees an advantage, dividing and recombining is done to confuse opponents and observe how they react to you, so that they can adapt and situate and seize victory. Therefore, when it moves swiftly it is like the ramp, when it goes slowly it is like the force. It is rapacious as fire and immovable as mountains, and as swift as the wind in that it goes without a trace, and withdraws like lightning and it is like a force in that its whirling and is rapacious as fire across a plain, not leaving a single blade of grass. But as immovable as a mountain, and it is dark all around. It is hard to know as the dark ends up killing thunder. To ponder a locality to line up your troupes to expand your territory divide the spoils. The rule for military operations is to feed off the enemy as much as possible. However, the localities where people do not have very much it is necessary to divide up the troupes into smaller groups to take what they need here and there. For when then and there, there will be enough. Welcome to the universe.

I'm personally growing tired of all this. Who are these idiots who are actually playing along with this?

I mean, an AI that's going to kill 9 Billion? There's only 6 Billion people around.

I'll bet Dana doesn't exist. She's just someone created by Bungie/Microsoft, and the August 24th thing, that will most likely be another announcement, or yet another trailer or something.

It's like, come on. One of the most advanced AIs around is one that figured out the meaning of life to be bloody 42. Or was it 47? Meh. Anyway. That's beside the point.

Stop messing about as if this is one big RP, or something that's really gonna happen...

how many times do you ppl have to be told this.
before you guys post anything go here.

stop filling this BLOG with CRAP.

B+W yes YOU.and ya m8s.
ppl have to read through all the CrAp you come out with.
if you want to talk to them that bad.
take them for a drink,
and out for dinner,then get a ROOM.

you know what i think that this site is clueing in on what halo 2's plot. i mean listen the whole site is telling that the flood are coming to earth in the game. Also has anyone noticed that as the days go on there are new text showing up and you know what i think this "dana" works for microsoft and that this is all a hoax. also i think bungie's game marathon has to also do with halo 2's plot. but thats my opinion. and this is my first ARG so i really dont know what i'm doing.
