Red Monday -- new game?

First -- I've been away from ARGs for a REALLY long time -- my last one was Lockjaw. I'm shocked that I've still got a login here.

ANYWAY -- I didn't see this posted anywhere else, and it's GOTTA be a new ARG starting up: http://red-monday.com The password is embedded in the page source. If you sign up to be notified of the "event," you get an email like this:

==
Do me a favor and delete this message after you read it. Get rid of any trace I ever contacted you...

someone got careless in Ontario this weekend and we think there might have been a leak. So watch yourself. If you've already received this update, I'm sorry... just making sure I cover my bases.

Anyways, call me JC.

So Saul told you about the Event? There are still a few details you probably need to be brought up to speed on. Here's our last conversation we had on the subject:

ECHELON CALL LOG:
Pub. L. No. 103-414, 108 Stat. 4279
INCID: 92547 Date: 09/24 Time: 9:57 PM
Phone Access: 206-279-1586

I cached the log at: http://www.red-monday.com/phonelogs/92547.mp3
sorry it's not complete... part of the file got cut off at tne end for some reason

I'll be using the Red-Monday.com drop point to pass docs as I decode them... in the meantime, don't tell anyone else about this... just lay low.

I will contact you again Oct 8, God willing, of course...

~JC

EDIT: try putting in your email again, you get strange messages like if this gets out I'm dead and that you should clear your history and cache.

I'm thinking Saul may be better known as Paul.

well here's hoping it's referring to Ontario Canada, rather than Ontario California Razz

here are some goodies from the flash pages...

after using the password, text wrote:

bash-3.07m$ pwd (34.041102816268854, -118.44313144683838)

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 164 Dec 29 2006 redmonday.xml

(the last line then changes to)
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 164 Dec 29 2006 diggsux sdftw

bash-3.07m$ ping -q -cl 211.99.196.166
PING 211.99.196.166 56(84) bytes of data.
Request timed out.

(during the ping text, the last line becomes)
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 164 Dec 29 2006 red-monday.doc


Notes...
* user: Jim Chu?
* when viewing (34.041102816268854, -118.44313144683838) as GPS, it leads to a location approximately 80KM west of Ontario, California. Specifically, a parking spot on La Grange Ave., between Sawtelle Blvd. and Beloit Ave.
* The IP 211.99.196.166 is a real website, for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China, as per the whois info. (choose another language to see a domain name). Oddly enough, if you try to ping the IP, you do actually get request timed out, even though you can view the website; they've blocked ping requests.
* There's an "Embassy Manifest" file listed
* A little btc joke? "digg sux, sd ftw" (not sure what site SD might refer to as competition to digg)

Also found in the countdown flash file...
Quote:

"r u ready to enter the rabbit hole, neo?"
"Are you ready for it, now?"
"It's too late for that now."
"You're already involved."
"LISTEN. TO. ME."
"If word gets out to the wrong people, I'm gone."
"DEAD."
"If the Prince finds out, it's on you."
"Don't expect me to reply here again."
"Wait for my emails."
"Bye."
"your loss."
"Godspeed."
"I thought it was easier not knowing, too."
"At first."
"But ignoring the truth won't change it."
"You'll realize that, soon."


Notes...
* The countdown is to November 26, 2007 midnight local time.

Also, a nice little twist... the initial flash that loads at red-monday.com redirects to another. In decompiling the intial flash, there are two strings hidden, only visible when decompiled.

"If you've managed to crack this far, then you must know what you're doing."
"Here's a code for you."

But I can't find any code anywhere else, other than the name of the flash object "dropzone" and the font name "Sydnie", but neither produce a result in the code entry box.

That's as far as I've got...
