Looks like it's time for me to blow the dust off my ARG skills. *cough* *cough* *sneeze*

Anyway, dunno if it's much of a help but the server name for the ARG cues, alphalupi, has meaning. Alpha Lupi is a B-class star, a very hot and short-lived one with a variable brightness, 460 light years away from Earth. In the sky it's just west of Alpha Centauri, so not visible from here in the northern hemisphere.

A star that hot is unlikely to have planets and AFAIK none have been detected, though it'd be tough to spot a planet around a star that bright, massive, and variable.

More later if I think of anything, which alas ain't guaranteed.

ETA: the significance of the name itself; "Lupi" is for the constellation the star is in, Lupus (the Wolf), and "Alpha" means it's the brightest star in that constellation, from our point of view. (Though it's likely a-Lupi is a really bright star in its own right.)
