That was both fun and intensely irritating. I feel positive that the posters here hit on what these forums will be about and excellent job to those who figured it out! I am in awe of the brilliant logical minds here!

That was so fast!



I guess now the: patience is a virtue part comes in.
Might as well go back to work...

Good work all, I was just behind you - trying to eat and jot down numbers at the same time didn't work out too well but I got the same code.

For those confused, right click on this word: here

Select "copy" or "copy link location"

Go to unlock.abovetopsecret.com...

Right click the gray bar and press "paste"

Press enter

It should now say "unlock initiated... forums will launch soon" at the bottom.

Same. Way to go guys.


Be proud!

It was awesome to see everyone working together. Even some who may have major differences of opinion and who might not otherwise work together for "the common good"

Now we play the waiting game.

i started looking at the wanky code, and I figured out that it was just taking the key above the letter in the code, on a keyboard.

so g would be t, z would be a, 3 would be c (wraparound i guess), and so on, and it translated to: give me ats link to tarmac ufo picture that could be real

So I did a search, and I found the O'Hare UFO thread, and in the OP by SkepticOverlord, it had the link to the post by the 000000 guy, www.abovetopsecret.com... So I fed that into the box, hit enter, and wham bam thankya ma'am... and that's how I did it.

So i am confused.. Does anyone know what this supposed unlock is supposed to be of? What forum? A new forum for us? Maybe some undisclosed information Skeptic has? I am trying to grasp what this could really mean. From what I am guessing, everyone's guesses are just as good as my guessed guessing is
haha. Well Cheers to all and i hope we find out what this is soon enough!

The numbers were in sequence for everyone, they were ASCII character codes ( en.wikipedia.org... ) making up a sentence.

I wrote a quick script to dump them out to a file (I originally thought the colours and fonts might be responsible), it looks like this:

wget -O- --load-cookies ats-cookie --referer="http://unlock.abovetopsecret.com/" unlock.abovetopsecret.com... 2>/dev/null|grep -A1 'id="fadeBlock"'|perl parse-num.pl >> number-list


The perl script is

#!/usr/bin/perl

use warnings;
use strict;
use Time:
iece;
use Data:
ump qw/ddx/;

local $/ = undef;

my $input = ;

my ($font, $colour, $number) = ($input =~ /font-family: ([^;]+).*color: #(\d+).*?(\d+)/s);

my $t = localtime;
my $out = "\"$t\",\"$font\",\"$colour\",\"$number\"\n";
print $out;
print STDERR $out;


I then wrote a little bit of bash to print out the characters (including the couple i missed in sequence):


echo -n "th"; cat number-list |awk -F, '[print $4]'|sed 's/"//g'|while read ord; do echo $ord|awk '[printf "%c", $_]'; done;


From there we got the whole string of text as you saw above, and noticed it contained this on the end:
bk4d 7d zgx .k6, gl gzf7z3 jvl ;k3gjfd gnzg 3lj.c 5d fdz.

Another member noticed that these are offset by one row on your keyboard, so b becomes g, 4 becomes v etc.

This made up a request for a realistic looking UFO picture, a bit of searching and pasting in the link solved the puzzle.

Sorry for the ugly code, I wrote it really really quickly.
