New Day, New Puzzle? (Tuesday)

Unread post by UnrealCh13f »

Oh hello Tuesday. Nice to meet you.

Now that we got that out of the way, if we point our browsers over to http://alphalupi.bungie.net/ and click "6" for Tuesday, you are greeted with a new prompt.

To get past the "gate" we are going to follow this chart provided by ncsuDuncan.

Image

After getting past the gate, we are prompted with (again) an output and a geomask image.

Coordinate. Combine. Clarify.

[Note: (x, y) visibility limited. (u, v) analysis might prove useful.]

Active Baselines:

Frequency gaps detected. Additional global observatories required.

And at the very bottom of the page, it says "Your node will remain active for 5 minutes, but may be reactivated as necessary.
Distributed, synchronous effort required."

Now, since it looks pretty much the same as Day 1 (Monday), it leads us to believe that there are multiple versions of both images.

Does it look like we are going to need to do the same thing from a couple hours ago?

Is this where we're collecting Tuesday's results? I know it's not 11amPST yet, but here are mine from a few minutes ago, just the same.

Location: Huntington Beach, CA.
Time: 8:38 am (if any of that's relevant)

It looks like there may be a QR code hidden in the noise image this time. We need enough "active nodes" in a five minute period to make enough white noise so that the Fourier transform reveals the hidden code.

Seems like most people are posting on the http://misriahsolutions.com/arg/ page. Should we just post there, instead of here?

That could work. I ended up tweeting @ncsuDuncan with my dropbox links. You could probably do the same.

In all honesty it doesn't matter all too much. Somewhere in the middle of that three minute window the current noise image will (if enough people do it) washed out enough to decode the message properly. Wouldn't hurt to post it in multiple locations though.

I think I'll still post here, and link to it over on the Misriah page. I don't have a dropbox, and imgur isn't as persistent as I once thought.
