I thought the first video game was PONG.

Ok, Kraten is located in Central time (GMT -6:00) and according to HLM his post was on june 29th at 11:48pm.

The "tide chart" points that on june 28th, the best time is 12:07Pm-12:44PM. Unless Kraten internet server is magically located in Pacific Time (GMT-8:00) or not timed right, the correlation to the previous location at GMT -7:00 is not relevant. Strange though that we encounter the "4 minutes over" as with meena.

At this point your guess is as good as mine. Anyway, I found the idea interesting enough to share. Also, I haven't had another from Josh yet. I'll try to contact him during the "best time to spot" just in case.


I wasn't sure what you were trying to do before, but I think if you're trying to use the times posted on the comments as some kind of a marker to figure out where Josh is, you might have a problem.

I'm pretty sure wordpress uses the current time of the server it's running on, which could be anywhere. I could get hosting on a web server anywhere in the world if I wanted to, and probably would, just to shop around for prices. I don't think that's a good way of pinpointing Josh himself. :/

Regarless of server time, if you are sitting at your computer at 17:00 in GMT-5:00, your friend in Gmt -7 will see his clock at 15:00. My hypothesis was that josh answered to post only when they come up while he was seating at his computer and that those time refers to the tide charts. The first two comparison worked, both pointing at gmt -7:00, but the last with kraten was off by one hour. Unless we can verify this with more data, I assume that my theory is not valid.


Edit: again the scroll thing on ipad....

Possible C ref.

Kags;

I believe if you run the search opt. you'll find that that was discussed earlier.

Beware trout spawning season is in full swing!

Don't get swung upon...

Colours

All v.preliminary-in a rush.....

So has anyone else been wondering why the colour changes in the background of the calenders? Hiding in plain sight and all that. Also-there are similarities between the moons and clues. I think especially interesting is 21st July - Same Moon as 22nd June AND is the date of the first lunar landing. My money's on 21st for new clues
