I don't know HOW THE HELL you figured that out but I'm dead impressed!!!!!
There's a guy on the Wired blog who had suggested something about numbers too. So I took your advice and tried to take your findings (and his) a bit
further. The guy on Wired suggested that the site has something to do with numbers, and I personally think between your findings and his it's
Take a look at his suggestion. He says that the DATE (is it even a date, are we sure??) 5.1.2010 adds up to 9 (5+1+2+0+1+0). He also suggested that
the incorrectly spelled "dispostion" is missing an "i", or the 9th letter in the alphabet. This happens TWICE on the page so I find it hard to
believe that the author didn't catch it especially with spell-check these days!
So anyway, you mentioned here that you figured out 36 to type in the original Donation box. That definitely struck an immediate chord for me... 36,
which also adds up the 5+1+20+10 (36) and the other guy's adding of the same "date" to 9... 36 is divisible evenly by 9 for a result of 3.
So obviously you figured out that there was a relationship between the NAME field and the DONATION box... but I found its one step further. The
number in the donation box (followed by the sequence of hidden button clicks that you discovered) simply needs to be a multiple of THREE for the
letters in the NAME field (Your 36 divided by the persistent 9 cropping up)!!
So, if your name is "Joe Smith", you'd have 9 characters in the total name counting the space, multiply that by 3 and you get 27. If you type 27
in the Donation field, then click the sequence of hidden buttons you mentioned, it works!!
The name is obviously, then, still important to whomever is GETTING this information... but there's some heavy relationships between numbers and
little nuances in this site going on here. I suspect this is the tip of the iceberg though since I still have no clue what the rest of it means.
What we DO know is that this strange sequence (kuddos to Shism and some guy on Wired) apparently makes an "Affirm" button appear. The button, as
Shism said, apparently takes you to a Paypal link. If I had to guess I'd say we're still missing a lot though. There are too many other things
going on within the page that don't seem to be explained yet. What's the "Affiliation"? Some letter-number combinations seem to appear there but
change each time (or appear to?). Then there's the other box that appears next to it with the "KEY 10182" in it. What the heck is that??
I'm personally beginning to believe that this is more complex than we originally joked about. The elegance of these interactive math sequences so
far don't appear to be "by accident." And someone joked a while back in the thread about disposition being spelled wrong. I'm thoroughly
convinced now (between Shism's finding, the Wired guy, and what I've put together from both) that THAT'S no accident either... I think we were
intentionally supposed to discover the 9 and 36 relationship... or maybe we just think we've found something but we're off in the wrong direction!
I don't know! I guess if Shism hadn't stumbled across 36, the only other relationship I'd see is 9 square-rooted is 3?
So now I'm re-examining the site from a new perspective. If everything, right down to the multiple ways to add, multiple, divide numbers, interpret
missing letters, and click sequences of hidden buttons has such tightly woven relationships, there's probably a lot more to figure out.
Like... what's a "disposition" or "application" anyway? Is that number "5.1.2010" really a date? Is there meaning behind the crest symbols?
What are those other Affiliation codes and junk... AHHH!! Hahaha. It can hurt your head to think about. But I'm actually getting a little paranoid
now over whether I want to submit any information here or even be visiting the site in the first place.
