The FTR page now says "Where is the first ring?". Type that into deep.access, and you get a link to this thread:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

It contains a coded message from 1.

First one to solve it gets a cookie!

Edit: Actually, looks like the first one to get it gets a ring. This plain text is in the middle of the ciphertext:



i have received confirmation from our other friends and locked t
heir encoded files into the sequence we discussed. we can decode
the files any time, they are buried in the usual places, requiri
ng the usual method for extraction. i've locked the extraction c
odes in concert with the decryption routine revealed when mine i
s located and ownership confirmed. we all thought this was the s
afest method to ensure only the proper shall gain access. when y
ou find the location of my virtual ring, enter the complete URL
combined with the item containing my virtual ring. Confirmation
will be requested, and the ring expedited to your specified loca
tion. combine as usual the inscription, to initiate the decrypti
on process that will unlock the sequence of clues from 2, 3,& 4.

I don't know about the code, but as PurdueNuc, pointed out on the caht, there is a plain text message in the middle.

Night all,

So once u find the virtual ring (ring 1) u gain access to deep.access and then u get the location of the others?

Any idea what the dots above and below the clue mean?

. . . . .... . . . .
Where is the first ring?
. . . . .... . . . .

Looks like morse code but all I could figure out was that the single dots are e's and the four close together are h.

Anyone got any other ideas?

On the FTR webpage.

go to the findtherings webpage. look to where it has the Where is the first ring? at. Right above and below that text are a series of dots.

This might just be because I haven't slept in 32 hours and am currently on the mother of all caffiene highs, but it seems to me that the . . . .... . . . is unlikely to be morse code (or it'd be "EEEHEEE", which is fun to shout at six-thirty in the morning when you, as I mentioned, haven't slept). Perhaps it's a decryption key for some pictorial cryptograph, or a diagram of the cylinders of a lock... completely random suggestions from a mind that has spent the past two days playing Team Fortress Classic and gorging on coffee.

It's also entirely possible that there's some symbolism in the arrangement of the dots themselves: one, one, one, four, one, one, one? perhaps three, four, three? Just keeping in mind the numbers of the agents you're working with (against)?

EDIT: MORSE code, not MORE code, sorry.

There was also 00110101, and a dapper fellow indeed was he... binary is a possiblity as well.

Here are some emoticons:


I need more caffiene! COFFEE NOW!

The code only uses the characters 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F and x, which is basicly hexadecimal with an extra character. Maybe it's septadecimal, base 17 instead of base 16?

. . . . .... . . . .

Did you mean one, one, one, one, four, one, one, one, one? or four, four, four???

i contend that if it is hex, the little x's are hex notations...

but still..me and perduenuc spent ALL night trying to crack it...it's no good..

The only x's I know in hex are those that are used to denote the fact that a certain code is hex. Sometimes, hex codes have 0x in front of them. Certainly two x's after eachother can't happen in hex.

What I think may be important is that the lines of normal text have coded text in between them. Maybe it's similar to the stone of Rosetta and the plaintext and the coded line above or below it contain the same message?

Nope...checked that already...the bits don't add up

I just found that the following part is comming up 2ce in the code, I'll keep analyzing and I'll post lines that are double and the ones that only apear once, grouped.:

To verify, copy the first line of the code and hit CTRL+F to open the search box, paste it and hit search(make sure you clicked the top of the page.)

First it'll highlight the line you copy'd, then if you hit search again, it'll show the second line that has the same code.

I'm gona try the classic way of beating a cypher, first look for all the recuring codes and snippets, then try to find their meaning :@

Well, it's certainly not a simple substitution cipher of one of two number/letters. The frequency analysis rules that out. If only we knew what the x's meant...

To keep this a short one, here are the letter frequencies for 5 and 6 characters. Actually, quite a bit.... There are tons of two, three, and four frequencies.....

5 letter sequences

13b5f => 6 013b5 => 6 19ex8 => 6 cxeb3 => 6 470ba => 6
73030 => 6 26db7 => 6 f4a5a => 6 ca068 => 6 85x3x => 6
abc5f => 6 bd2c3 => 6 e36c3 => 6 fe36c => 6 efe36 => 6
fc685 => 6 51a0e => 6 e7a8f => 6 ae7a8 => 6 1a0e7 => 6
f8247 => 6

6 letter sequences

013b5f => 6 ae7a8f => 6 51a0e7 => 6 fe36c3 => 6

I took the 6 letter frequencies and converted them to colors....
they are here.... www.icebunnies.com... Just a guess. basically trying everything now....

what's even odder is that they ALL appear in sets of 6...i'm willing to bet that the rest will equal sets of 6 as well...
