 Original post by Vampyre_DarkPerhaps the second clue is something that can be done to modify the first clue? Seems that everything else has been done by now?
I wondered if the numbers were indices into the URL or the last clue, but neither was long enough.

I was actually wondering, what if there's a bug in the sequence? Like, hack.net was just a picture of a bug, which was really the first step, so a logical progression from that would indicate that something is wrong with the sequence

 Original post by KuladusWah, two hours later and still nothing. :(btw the owners blog can be found here. http://www.seismicgopher.comi didn't really get anywhere, i mainly tried counting backwards from 127 (assuming he uses a 7-bit ascii code) - note the highest number in the sequence is 30, and 127-30=97 which is the letter 'a'. The '+' and '-' characters are really messing with my mind...I can't really figure out what they are for. Note the modifiers (as i call them) are all relatively low (nothing above 3)Also all the numbers are between 11 and 30, which makes the span 19 - if you consider this as a range from a-s....ahh.....I give up! It probably is just a brainf&*k afterall, and has no answer.

I tried counting backwards from 127 with differnt uses for + / - and got gibberish in ASCII

I was thinking that they are perhaps octal representations of letter. I.e. 27oct = 23d = w
But I haven't been able to get anywhere with that yet.

What if the twist was.. There is no step three. It's just a lie to make you waste your time..

doesn't google have an experimental pattern matcher somewhere?

Going back a few steps, I have been looking at the ACSII octal values, and I have still gotten some gibberish.

 ' & 3 NewLine CarriageReturn # " " Space

Whats interesting to me is the NewLine, followed by the CarriageReturn... Definatly starting to look more like a string, or a string operation, perhaps soemthing encrypted?

perhaps he wants us to perform some sort of string operations on the previous answer. But so far it doesn't make sense.

Perhaps there really isn't a solution, i had tried everything described here before i read this post and have gotten nowhere...

typically it goes \r\n so the string would have to be backwards for that to be correct
