ok

The whole grid is 4 times redudant.

So whatever is shown on the top half will be mirrored on the bottom.

If there was a message in the distances. It would end half way. and would be the reverse on the second half.
Same across the middle. left to right is mirrored.

This makes me believe the only important data is in a single corner. Take your pick they are all exactly the same. The big square is 52 by 52... with 104 total points. Each corner is 26 by 26, with 26 points.

Just one grid. ... im sure they mean a single corner.

Just a simple rule?... use a ruler? maybe the rule is one grid? or perhaps
there is a rule that will allow us to assign something to each point?...

interesting

Regardless, you bring up an interesting point. ... the lines i listed that have no points. are clearly filled in with the lines with two points at 90°.

To explain it in a different way. You noticed that each row has only 2 points on the big square. its either amazing coincidence. or done on purpose for a reason.

it just means that the Tangent of each point lines up to a unique Y value, that only one other point has.

Of course this is just mirrored on the bottom, but perhaps this is important. does this work with other arrangements of the 26 points. 90° ends up with only two points per line. what about 180° and 270°.

Also... perhaps if you overlapped Quadrant 1(upper left) with quadrant 2(upper right). and took the distance as a letter.

Perhaps placing 0 = A and 25 = Z.

Finally, we solved it (I was lucky to get it first):

 Spoiler (Rollover to View): The page was changed three times and all the pics had just one thing in common: two dots in each line Catherwood brought the "two" back into play, I tried it and it worked. Then we pretty much ran through a trial & error. "twoinarow" was the next thing I tried and the response led to "twoinline". The answer clue is this: "Yes you are allowed to have 2 in line. What about more?" More trial & error. I tried "nothreeinaline" and that turned out to be correct (you can replace "three" with "3", doesn't matter...but notthreeinaline does NOT work...). The next page is http://www.soogees.com/s2/partytime/

Oops, There's a Syntax error in it. hehehe...."almost there and back again" keeps getting better line 8 chareter 1? Yup. what is the error? else? or {y=r? The "Else" is the error. Though I'm going through the script now (With a fine-toothed comb) to work out what it's up to. Erk. That's a horrible mess. well if i delet all the errors will it run? If you delete all the errors (And there are many), it will do something. From the looks of it, it'll make fireworks (Or something like that). Lots of random number generation going on so far... you got it:) it was fireworks Typical nice one And here was me thinking I had to get the script to run. * delusional696 toasts to Anaerin You're welcome.

Looks a lot like this:

But I can't separate the characters cleanly.

Strifey had the text transliterated, and it said this:
 Spoiler (Rollover to View): "preliminary registration statement that must be filed with the SIC describing a new issue of stock (IPO) and the prospects of the ishoink compay" He then found where this came from, and it was this. However, redherring.htm wasn't it. But, looking further in the definition, we see that a red herring becomes a final prospectus. So, finalprospectus.htm.

Solving this:

another useless thought

Well in that case ill just keep adding my useless thoughts to fuel the background chatter.

There are 30 unique symbols on that puzzle.
never more than 4 'lines' ...

it would be possible to convert these to a binary
version of each symbol.
for instance the upper left symbol would be 1000-0000
and the lower right symbol would be 0101-0101

no lines next to each other. so you'd never see 1100. or 0110.

This limits this as a possible Hex conversion, for determining letter for a symbol.

So back to nothing.

rotten compass... I see how these symbols match the N,NE,E,SE,S,SW,W,NW... each symbol is a combonation of these

Man maybe i should just shut up and stop posting. ... am i even helping?

No, don't do that!

However, fwiw, it's probably a simple sub cipher (you have to substitute letters for each symbol, and then decipher), and likely to be a rot ten.

sub cypher

I considered a sub cypher but its 30 unique symbols. that leaves us with 4 symbols that dont match letters.
