Unread post Iris References on Cover of Wired Magazine
My brother-in-law just brought his September copy of Wired Magazine by my office so I could read the Halo 3 article. It had a couple references to Iris as well as a few other numbers I couldn't place. Here are all the numbers on the cover with my speculation:

206.16.223.63 - Sota website
07 - possibly the year of release for Halo 3?
Installation 05 - Another Halo
40 KL - This was in another picture in the article, looks like part of the aiming reticule for the Rocket Launcher?
117 - Master Chief's spartan designation
2552 - Year Halo events transpire
001
012
034
053 - These 4 numbers appear oriented together like this, GPS coordinates (thanks wikibruce)
343.00 - Perhaps a reference to Guilty Spark
888.778.5672 - FCC Phone Number
2401 - Penitent Tangent.
Mark VI - That would be MJOLNIR

I think Iris is over but thought it interesting that there were 2 direct references to it on the cover of the magazine, any ideas? I'd also like help figuring out the other references on the cover as well. I'll try to post the scan.

Edited to add link to image (The scan on my computer is much bigger and clearer, if someone with better skills wants to get it onto the forum PM me and I'll email you the file) and update info courtesy of Unfiction forums who already had this info.
