The Lost Experience Time Capsule...
Wed, 04 Oct 2006 20:42:52 PDT
Welcome! We wanted all our visitors to know that we've abandoned this blog as a "time capsule" or a tribute to The Lost Experience. Many readers and commenters developed a sense of community through the Experience and we wanted to help this wonderful aspect of the game continue on past the summer. To facilitate the proliferation of the Lost community, we've created a new blog dedicated exclusively to episode by episode discussions of Season 3 of LOST. Click HERE to visit The Lost Community
. Everyone is welcome to join us!(image)

. Alvar Hanso has written a letter about the restoration of the Foundation. But that's not all...click the word "humanity

That's right. We're wrapping up our role in The Lost Experience with one last podcast. We've got a lot of fun things planned to try to sum things up but we can't do it without YOUR HELP. We'll be doing a segment called "I just wanna say...
" where Lost Experience players will have the chance to speak their minds about anything and everything TLE related. Since it would be next to impossible to coordinate multiple phone conversations, we ask that you email us 60 seconds or less of your voice in MP3 format by next Wednesday at noon
(U.S. Central Timezone). Start your audio with "My name is...and I just wanna say..." Look for the podcast coming up next Thursday!(image)
Clue #142 - LetYourCompassGuideYou.com Update
Thu, 21 Sep 2006 11:27:24 PDT
The LetYourCompassGuideYou.com site
has been updated! Go there and you'll see a rather strange card with a snowman on the beach, as well as a message that the site has been removed. If you click on the word "remove", however, you'll be taken to this video
in YouTube. Also, if you "Ctrl A" the page, you'll see the following link at the bottom: 13/9/19/19/9/14/7/15/18/7/1/14/19
It takes you to the Index of /usr where you can finally find the missing_organs.zip in the trash folder
. The title of the document inside the zip file is "Evidence of the Hanso Foundation's Crimes
". Also, you'll find that there are some new entries in the OpenersHep.log
file regarding William T. Kilpatrick (WTK).Thank you to makomk, Gavin, Scott, Wendy, and Dennis for emailing us on this!

Clue #139 - RachelBlake.com, StopHanso.RachelBlake.com, & WhereisAlvar.com Updates
Thu, 14 Sep 2006 09:26:10 PDT
There is a new post
. Converting the binary to text gives hex, which then converts to what appears to be a reply to Rachel from Malik saying, "R -- I respect your caution. Suppose it's warranted, after all you've come through. I can't remember it exactly, but I think when we were in the stairwell in Paris, you muted the mic as I said "Because he wanted me to help you, and I can't question a man who would launch the Mental Health Appeal... to save a loved one." Say what you will about him now, his heart was once in the right place."
There is also a new post
. The octal decodes to "IiY'nCmN" which can be rearranged to read "I'm in NYC."(image)
Rachel has posted another encrypted message
. See the picture posted by user "firstname.lastname@example.org". Because of all the excellent decoding/encoding work in the comments, the message has been translated to say, "You lived in 3 different apartments. Be waiting outside your second at 7:45 PM. I'm sending a car. Hope you remember the brand of iron you hit me with, because that's the code.
Thanks to makomk, Vashti87, Donn, Kenneth, Main, Mark, and Bassclef42 for emailing us this information.
Clue #138 - HansoExposed.com Update
Thu, 14 Sep 2006 05:29:43 PDT
If you log in to hansoexposed.com
, you'll see a blinking star
next to the "Send Sequence" button. Press the "star button" to listen to 4 minutes, 13 seconds of Morse Code. According to PeaceandNamaste and mamomk in our comments, translating this gives us us "M--I wish it were that simple. Fact is, as much as I want to, I still can't trust you. I want to believe you are the man who helped me in Paris but "de Zylva's" name was not unknown. You could be Mittlewerk himself, springing a trap under my feet. I need confirmation it's you. I need you to tell me something only you could know."
Thanks to makomk, Maven, RyanDrumz, and PeaceandNamaste for emailing us about this clue.
Clue #137 - DJ Dan Update & thehansofoundation.org Update

As you once shouted at the top of your lungs, we've all got 'blood on our hands.' I just hope my friend is resting easy. Where are you? I'll need you to meet me in Norway
." It appears we have a reply to Rachel from Malik.Thanks to Dixee, Twinkle, James, Chas, and Dennis for emailing us about this latest message.
Clue #136 - Other Girl Special
Mon, 11 Sep 2006 05:05:04 PDT
The Other Girl posted
with a message about a cryptic email
she recieved filled with numbers. Decode the numbers (using this website
) and you'll find that it's Rachel's quick reply to Malik. Her message answers some important questions we've been asking. She says...
"I knew you were behind that. I just knew. He never told me, you know?When I hit the ground I was sure I was dead. The camera was broken, they were dragging me to my feet... and then a burst of gunfire in the air. These were SCIENTISTS, unarmed. They hit the ground. But not Mittelwerk. He kept coming until de Zylva turned the shots in his direction. Once Mittelwerk was face down on the ground, de Zylva grabbed my hand and we were gone. With the camera.He didn't talk. He said he was de Zylva, that was it. We knew Mittelwerk was already in pursuit, but we stuck to tunnels that had been dug out during various wartimes. We had some close calls. The goal was the American embassy in Colombo, but when we got there, we knew that was impossible. It was being watched -- the airport, too. de Zylva said The Hanso Foundation had too much influence in Colombo to take the risk. And, then, they caught wind of us again. We knew we could be caught at any second, and the only important thing was that video. EVIDENCE of Mittelwerk's world-wide decimation plot. I'd planned for this. All I needed was a secure, high-speed connection. The Hanso goons knew it too. They surrounded the place while I was uploading. We barricaded ourselves, de Zylva knew an escape route. I barely got out, made my way to a friend of de Zylva's who could get me to India. I swear, I waited for de Zylva. But he never came. I'm so sorry
Thanks to jonnygasman & Matt the Pale for emailing us about this clue!
Clue #135 - Ninja Special
Sun, 10 Sep 2006 21:12:21 PDT
Looks like Malik has replied to Rachel by sending a message to/through Ninja. His latest post
contains this image
which has been translated (see comments at the end of the previous post) to say, "R -- I think it's fair to say, whatever conscience I have was built on faulty equipment. This is a matter of duty. Loyalty... Speaking of which, I've been troubled by the very recent disappearance of an old friend, de Zylva. We all saw your Sri Lanka video. You were captured at the end, and yet, there you were, blasting those Lost producers in San Diego not a week later. And, I have to wonder... did de Zylva have something to do with that? Do you know what's become of him?
Thanks to Lost Librarian & Gina for emailing us first. Plus, shoutout to Dante b/c we heard that he was one of the first to decode the message!
Clue #134 - Speaker Special
Sun, 10 Sep 2006 21:10:31 PDT
Speaker at Inside the Experience
, just posted the pic above (he had the image flipped). The filename is "ironman_1". Could this be a message from Rachel to "Iron Man" Malik? The hex converted to Ascii is: "rewsna ym wonk ydaerla uoy neht era uoy kniht i ohw tuoba gniklat eruoy fi nadjd ot ni llac uoy draeh ti si thgif eht ni uoy gnipeek si ecneicsnoc --m" If you read this backwords it says: "M--Conscience is keeping you in the fight is it? Heard you call in to DJ Dan. If you're talking about who I think you are then you already know my answer.
"Thanks to Gerry, Twinkle, Dennis, and PeaceandNamaste for emailing us about this cool new clue!
Clue #133 - Fragment Code "PGVPE4EC"
Fri, 08 Sep 2006 12:00:04 PDT
Fragment Code, "PGVPE4EC
" has been found on Rachel Blake's European Holiday blog
. It was found by viewing the source code of her blog and discovering a string of picture files (.png). It was deduced that these file names needed to be added to the main blog url, giving us various pieces of the final glyph. Here are the pieces of the glyph:http://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/They.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/say.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/that.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/everything.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/happens.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/for.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/a.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/reason.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/I.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/wish.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/I_.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/could.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/believe.pnghttp://www.rachelblake.com/img_new/that.png
If you put all these pieces together, you'll get this picture of the final glyph
. The video fragment is of Mr. Beardy (Okay...Alvar Hanso) saying, "Valenzetti assigned numerical values to the core environmental and human factors of his equation, 4,8,15,16,23,42."Great job to TLCM, DazzedElf, Justin and Dennis for being the first to email this clue. And a HUGE THANK YOU to Matt the Pale for his (now famous) Fragment Code List.

Clue #131 - Fragment Codes "KCQBMLI6" & "ZR2JI"
Thu, 07 Sep 2006 16:38:41 PDT
Fragment Code "KCQBMLI6" was found in 4 pieces on a glyph hunt beginning on Ninja's MySpace Page. He has a blog posted on myspace and it ends by saying, "These aren't the droids you're looking for..." (piece 1) and then gives us a clue that leads us back to this post on his blog. When you check thel link Other Girl's got the scoop, you get piece 2. Finally, on his latest post, he ends his post by saying, "And finally, I hope you've got your detective caps on...? (Notice the hidden link? Piece 3) Near my seal begins the tasking, it's the question we're all asking..." If you go to his post featuring his seal, you'll find that his Where is Alvar link isn't really what it appears to be (It's piece 4).All that work is worth it because the video fragment is of Mr. Beardy saying, "That is the work to which you have comitted yourselves. Change the core values of the Valenzetti Equation, and you will change the course of destiny."Fragment Code "ZR2JI" was found on the London live-glyph hunt. Dacky, Ian, and one other person were some of the first to the scene. They sent us pictures of the glyph painted in the grass (close up) and also the glyph on a clear sheet of acetate. The video fragment is of Mittlewerk saying, "And in spite of every effort of the Foundation, we are gripped in the tyranny of those six Numbers."Stay up to date with your hansoexposed.com fragment codes by visiting Matt the Pale's Fragment Code List.Thanks to Donn, Sleeper, and Lavenda for emailing us about these codes. Also, we wanted to give a shout out to Pzy, Dissonation, Matt the Pale, & Main for contributing significantly to the glyph hunting.In other news, a few of us had a great time gathering together at the Dallas Apollo Candy giveaway event on Wednesday night (sponsored by our local ABC affiliate - check out their blog covering TLE). We all got plenty of Apollo Bars so be looking for our pictures on whereisalvar.com and count on us sending our extras to apollotrade.blogspot.com as soon as we get the chance![...]
Clue #130 - Fragment Code "V4UMMA"
Thu, 07 Sep 2006 05:32:32 PDT
Fragment code "V4UMMA
" has been found in yet another one of Speaker's fun and challenging glyph hunts. Speaker posted a new bulletin on his Myspace page
saying: "The Fuselage is the place to be, Find the user, initials K.P."
We know Speaker likes Kim Possible so if you view Kim Possible's profile on the Fuselage
, you'll see "When DJDan streamed live on the net
" as the Custom Title and "There was a comment from a coaltrain's pet
" as the Personal Text.
During DJ Dan's live broadcast, Speaker started this thread
on his blog. "Coaltrain's pet" is in reference to Rosco P. Coltrane from The Dukes of Hazard, whose pet's name was Flash
. Scroll through the post to find a comment by the user "Flash" who says: "to top 8 number 4 is where you should prance, click on the winner of so you think you can dance.."
Finally, go back to Speaker's MySpace page
and click on his Top 8 , Number 4, then on the winner of So You Think You Can Dance
to see the newest glyph
