Just read up from when I left yesterday, the only person who made a russian connection that I remember was Alas/|vanova, and he seems to make a russian connection to everything after going through his posts on this site and another site. Originally some of us thought he was running things, but after talking to him I believe that is alot less likely.
We are all connected right now working in unity to solve a puzzle, we were told most of us have already discovered the message, and someone gave a specific number, Can't remember who exactly, but maybe that is the goal to get us all thinking as one? Working together to solve a problem, be interesting if the messages get more abstract or alot more fringe as we get closer to the end of the countdown.

there's one question that caught my attention and i believe no one else thought much of it.
some poster who had received an e-mail asking "what is today".
and working on anything russian, we get:
["Ivan IV Vasilyevich (Russian: Ива́н Четвёртый, Васи́льевич (help·info), Ivan Chetvyorty, Vasilyevich; 25 August 1530 – 28 March [O.S. 18 March] 1584), known in English as Ivan the Terrible (Russian: Ива́н Гро́зный (help·info), Ivan Grozny; lit. Fearsome), was Grand Prince of Moscow from 1533 until his death".]
on a side note, i noticed a lot of people stating that the cat is dead on the new picture. but actually it's not. if you look closer you'll realize that the trap is both armed and off, the bottle is broken and whole and the cat itself is dead and alive (and is not a ghostly picture of a cat's spirit leaving its body...)
also, aaron wrote some pages back about his frustration with the puzzle. and i agree completely. there were a lot irrelevant clues that added nothing to the outcome. a broken hastily put togheter riddle. the Scroedingers Cat part only got avaiable on the third or fourth update on that page. and from then, with no connection with the previous clues, everyone declared problem solved. now there could be two things: either the riddle maker is playing on our self satisfaction and leading us astray on a irrelevant side line (good puzzle) or it's indeed a disconnected riddle (bad one).edit on 25/8/2011 by maoklein because: (no reason given)

the page is reading 549xxxxxxx. last night, on glp, someone posted their viewed code as 546xxxxxxx. at first, i thought it was just different time zones, but the difference there is more than 12 hours (at least i think).

the image is of an experiment theorized by Stephen Hawking, stating that relative to quantum mechanics, if you had a cat in a box; one which you could not see through; and there was a gun that would fire off into the box the moment a radioactive isotope decayed; what is the state of the cat?
so, in theory, the cat is both half dead and half alive because the odds of it being dead or alive are precisely 50%edit on 25-8-2011 by moonsun because: oops, didnt see the lastest comments with the correct scientist

Why does everyone keep saying it is down, it is working fine for me.
Maybe everyone is still trying to go to the Mirror site.
Try this instead.
