Project Syzygy

Check it out - Project Syzygy. It's what a lot of people have been waiting for, and it's what I've been alluding to for some time now (probably sacrificing a great deal of credibility at the same time, but what the hell - the teaser site is up now). I've also made a post about it in my weblog, linked below.

Well, since decoding Braille is easy, it says:

"I CAN SEE YOU"

Well, Dia already solved it, but for the rest of you...

In the source code:

A famous quote from Steve Jobs to John Sculley in 1984, when Jobs was trying to lure Sculley away from Pepsi and bring him to Apple. The remainder of the line is:

Heh... I'm perpetually late; I just rotted the keywords myself. Now, where is grumpyboy to solve the post-it note?

Goddammit, you guys are too fast Smile For the record, I didn't make the teaser site. But keep an eye on it, there may be some changes...

Edit:
Yep, that's it - the mailto guy is the same person who registered projectsyzygy.

Hint:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
This number 0670875597 on the post-it note is an ISBN number. (My specialty since the Acheron pre-game.)

It's the page number, line, and word separated by the hyphens.

There is also this, and for some reason it's unprotected, though there isn't really anything interesting there.

And, interestingly enough: http://www.perplexcity.net/actonsmith.com/
Which may look eerily similar to: http://www.actonsmith.com/actonsmith.com/

It's also fun to break the index php with your own values. 'Cause then you can find out stuff like the michael smith's username and apparently the name of the hosting box (guessing). [ /home/.ironside/masmith/actonsmith.com/index.php ]

So perplexcity.net and actonsmith.com have apparently looked this way since Oct. 2003?
