heh. they saw us seeing them. the archive links no longer work. Smile

Well, fFor everyone who did NOT see it in that brief 10 minutes you could get to it ... you didn't miss much. Nothing new or otherwise unavailable was seen. If anything, *Less* was seen that way, as graphics were labelled with some sort of stylesheet layout.

no worries, you know and have seen just as much as i have.

Read through the paper. Lots of stuf about needing a key and pointing it at stuff. Where do we get a key? I need one!

It looks like a Key is a local cultural custom of having a personal ID method on your person at all times. More than an ID card, also a bit like a net-avatar somehow ("please point your key to Letters at the Sentinel").

I guess that's the simple way of thinking of the key: an avatar. A thing which is not you, but can stand in your place and represent you fFor certain needs.

If as the vid voice-over mentioned, we all have equivalents on their side (and this is big spec) then presumably our equivalents would all have keys. Perhaps we'll be able to use theirs...?

"your key requires service" not servicing...are we merely out of reception?

quick analysis of the site:

1) the first thing i noticed and is really strange, is the copyright notice on the bottom. it says "2005", and not something "AC". typo? intentional?

2) in "focus", the only article we can read, is the last one - the one's pieces we got in newspapers

3) subscription, seems like it's not ready yet. let's take a look at how we can authenticate on websites:
  • web-based logins: that'd need a form, but we don't have. that page [the subscription error] is STATIC. no php, only plain HTML.
  • cookies: that works fine, but we'd still need a page to carve a cookie for us. and we haven't found it yet.
  • htauth - see header 401 - well, that'd pop up swhere.

so what i want to point out, is that we're not meant to log in yet, we can't have subscriptions, etc. that is NOT READY yet. and it really seems like that it's only used as a 404 document.

this much so far Wink

deductions?

Can we assume from the Sente article that there is no travelling from there to here? (The cube being the exception!), which would mean that the MC from Dinah's print out cannot be "mission control" Unless the academy is keeping the ability to travel under wraps? Is it that he can only communicate with earth, not get here?

And why has he taken so long getting it all started when its clear that theres alot at stake there end!!

I'll keep looking

Seeing as how nobody has mentioned it yet...

On the letters page is the following text : "Think we're doing a great job? Is there something you'd like us to do better? Do you just have an opinion you'd like the city to hear? We'd love to hear from you! Just point your key to Letters at the Sentinel."

I have tried emailing many permutations of the "letters at the sentinel" address, but they all bounce back - which is a pity, coz I was kinda looking forward to being the first Earthling to write a letter to another dimension and actually having it published!

Here's what I tried :
lettersSPLATperplexcitysentinel.com
letterSPLATperplexcitysentinel.com
editorSPLATperplexcitysentinel.com

Some other folks on #syzygy in IRC tried various of the PPC Sentinel staff members @perplexcitysentinel.com and they also bounced, so I'm guessing this is all inactive as yet.
