I am really confused at this point. I am still debating how much more effort I honestly want to put into this. Frustration is not my friend.
The Loki reference is hysterical. Not that I'm discounting it. It would be entirely appropriate. Just thought it was clever.
Pantha, if you are in fact in on this, you got some 'splainin' to do, Lucy.
Now about the numbers, I know this may seem elementary but here goes:
417/333 can be divided up like this: 41-73-33. We do have files that begin with those three numbers.
41 qaz - 35 tgb
73 edc - 13 edc
33 edc - 43 edc
Maybe we should be focusing on these three files to provide clues. Or maybe what the files have in common. The letter sequences associated can also be reduced to three patterns:
qaz : tgb : edc (which is used 4X)
I don't know if this means anything or not. Just my half-asleep morning contribution. If someone will send me the files for 41/73/33 so I can look at just those parts specifically, that would be great. I don't know what part of the document they compose, since I never had the whole batch in my possession, only the completed puzzle.

I opened the files with a hex editor. No chance with our numbers
but all the files start with the same text string which has the words
"Ducky" and "Adobe" in it.

Nada. If it exists, there is not one single reference. I have no idea where else to go with this.
