I am pretty sure the latin is just some randomly generated stuff, i think we should concentrate on what generated it or why it was generated.

This may be a glitch in the matrix caused by that server hiccup before. Maybe there is supposed to be a clue there but something got messed up. This text looks remarkably similar to sample webpage text:

Examples:

www.nonplus.net...
borumat.de...

Several of the phrases are repeated as well, such as:

Lorem ipsum dolor sytamet

(and a bunch of others I'm too lazy to find).


What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.




See, I can generate my own.

Something isn't right here. If we don't hear from the mods, we know this is legit. Maybe the fact its randomly generated is a clue. Either way, this is another 20x250 lol.

Its because its random space filler text. Lorem Ipsum is the name. Read the post above yours. Maybe theres something more to it.

This whole damn thing is randomly generated. I am officially clueless.


It's Lorem Ipsum.
A dummy text used for typesetting.

SO has used it before when trying out new layouts because you are not distracted by the words and can focus on the design itself.



There is no design to focus on, however. Its just text.

I'm thinking more along the lines that there is a keyword in there somewhere, that was not randomly generated, but rather inserted into the page (in the single post 43)

any other thoughts...

Nothing is jumping out at me, but then again I'm not fluent in Lorem Ipsum.

2050 words

Random musings from the Wolf.

Some of the words are English. I've found "might" and "see" near the end. maybe we have to weed out the English words in order to create the clue?

Your contributions rock, Xeros. Did a bunch of Lorem Ipsum generated paragraphs and no "might" or "see" in any of them.

Maybe it has something to do with the golden ratio.

there is the number "64" in there too near the begining (first paragraph) so that must be a clue as lorem ipsum doesn't use numbers.

xeros great idea


iam going through to find all the english words



and i bet you all there are words that look latin but are just scrambled words


i bet we have to find these and unscramble them, and then create a possibel sentence



it all makes sense to do this

If thats the case, I quit.



One other thing I noticed. This isn't pure copy & pasted Lorem Ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

I was thinking some words could be anagrams or spelt backwards perhaps?

The last 4 clues were scrambled. Odds are theres scrambled words in there, as well.

The odds of me going word for word through 2050 words attempting to unscramble them? Slim to none.

well, I thought it might be Fibonacci numbers, or the Golden Section, but I don't know...I'm trying, but nothing's working.......ARGH!!!!!!!!..........................again.

Anyone know of a program that can compare 2 blocks of texts and extract the words that are unique to one of the paragraphs?


For example:


Paragraph 1: Bob Eats Raw Fish
Paragraph 2: Bob Eats Fish

Is there a program that I can pop both into and it will identify "raw"?
