[TRAILHEAD] Must Love Robots

I'm guessing no one ever checks Despoiler or else totally missed the postcard from 011iver that was posted by Space since it's been over a week and still no thread here.

I've written most of what I've discovered so far on my guide and also have a list of all the websites so here is just a brief recap:

011iver is a robot. 011iver is looking for love. His roommate Tim set up Must Love Robots to help him find love. Won't you please help 011iver find his soulbot?

* http://www.MustLoveRobots.com
* http://www.InactiveWare.com
* http://www.RobotFriendFinder.com
* http://www.MBILF.biz (slightly NSFW)

hilarious Laughing Laughing Laughing


EDIT:
011ver's twitter account: http://twitter.com/011iver
Tim's: http://twitter.com/TimScribbles
Chuck's: http://twitter.com/ChuckQuartz

Tim's Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/35836355@N02/


Somehow I get a This is Not Millwake vibe from this, in part because it's all very funny and elaborate, whoever created this went through a lot of work. Nice job!


EDIT 2:

011ver has a Flickr account but either there's nothing on it or we can't access it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10163379@N05/

Also, I've noticed there are some phone numbers around (the MBILF site, and the InactiveWear one, that I can remember), can someone from the US check that out?

Also, 011ver's email from Inactivewear: 011iverSPLATinactiveware.com


EDIT 3: Chuck's blog: http://chuckq.tumblr.com/

According to my uF profile, this thus far contains two of my three interests. That alone is enough to get me involved.

Of course, there's also the fact that this is severely AWESOME Shocked

Decoded the binary on the RobotFriendFinder.com intro video, just for fun... it says "the place where robots can come for true romance"

Decoded that same message from the video, and from the binary on the main page header I got "sponsored by mbif.biz". Also, I'm pretty sure he says that they have 36 characteristics to help match YOU with your soulbot =)

My processor must be fried, because I'm having problems solving what should be a simple password clue.

Here's the deal: I received the following when I registered at mbilf.biz (don't judge me!)-

Quote:
Congratulations!

You are now a member of the hottest computer themed adult video website on the internet.

Hello //*error contacting database//*,

Thanks for signing up, here is your login information:

Username: //*resetting to default *usrnm* 1:05 {http://tinyurl.com/qkf8yq}///
Password: //*psswrd* 1:25 {http://tinyurl.com/qkf8yq}////

With this username and password, you have access to the raunchiest robot content on the internet, it will surely get your motor humming. Log on, and get off.


It looks like there were some problems assigning me a login, so I e-mailed the site admin asking for help. This is the response I got (translated from the original binary)-

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
"Hello Mr Larval - Follow the links, wait till the right moment. you'll find a username and password to get in. i can't be more explicit, i'm under a lot of scrutiny right now. -lugnut"


After thinking a bit about his response, I-

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
followed the links, which took me to the welcome video on http://robotfriendfinder.com/ I watched it and, with a stopwatch, "waited till the right moment" to find the username and password. Both of those moments were noted in the original e-mail: Username= 1:05, Password= 1:25.

I tried synching the stopwatch and video two slightly different ways, and came up with two or three possible usernames and passwords. The username seems to be either "magic" or "joy", but I've also been trying "experience". The password looks like it's "hotness", but could also be "mating" (which flashes briefly on screen, in place of 'operating' in 'compatible operating systems').

I've been trying different combos, with different case arrangements, but having no luck. Also trying every other word around those words. It's driving me slightly crazy.


So have at it folks! And not just for whatever hot bot on bot action you might find inside... I have a feeling there's something sinister here. Something to do with Mr. Carol Coldoil, who's apparently behind both mbilf and robot friend finder, and sponsoring all the other sites.

This second response I got from the mbilf admin (when I asked if I was on the right track) seems to suggest something's a bit off-

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
mr. c is keeping tabs of what I am doing. can't say much. i hid clues in the video. keep an eye out. time it.


EDIT Ok, got it.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
I extracted the flash file and played it back in FLV Player to see the exact timing. And instead of listening for a password, I looked for it. At 1:05 "Carol Coldoil" is on-screen, and at 1:25, as mentioned before, "mating".

So, use name "carolcoldoil" and pw "mating" to access the members only section of the site... which contains a special behind the scenes look at "Big Floppy Disks 11" Very Happy Not to mention, an ADMIN ONLY section of the site, requiring another username and password. Considering lugnut is the admin, that seems like the place to start.

I just found the following while messing around with directories on Robot Friend Finder (translated from the original binary):

Quote:
404

this page does not exist

You have reached this page in error. Either you mistyped something, or we screwed up and put something where it should not have gone. We just said that to be nice though, trust us, we did not screw this up, it was all you. You are welcome to try again, but frankly, I'm not convinced you have the mental capacity to navigate this website. This is a 404 error code, a 404 error is a distinctly human error, robots do not make these kinds of errors. Please navigate back to where you just came from (or realign your servos) and try again. Should you fail again, there is a slight chance that our human service providers are at fault and not you, but again, i cannot stress enough that reaching this error page is in no way our faults.. Assuming your human brain cannot process how to navigate the site correctly, we suggest you just return to the homepage.


I'm liking these guys more and more.

I don't know if anyone else had seen this, but there's some binary in the main page source code of robot friend finder wich translates to
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
There is nothing to see here in this code, human. Your human brain is not capable of processing the intricacies of complex web code written by sophisticated machines such as myself, please return to the aesthetically pleasing site we created.
