Claire Atlanta has reappeared on Facebook, although her profile is currently blank.

I wonder about those four x's. Do they indicate four right angles? Also, Little Jack Horner is most famous for sitting in corners eating pie. Another reference to right angles? The Pie could also be "Pi" - Pi R Squared being the formula for a circle. This could be a reference to "squaring the circle":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squaring_the_circle

Interesting to note the Wikipedia page for Jack Horner cites Sabine Baring-Gould as a reference - someone who's cropped up several times in the history of Vlad and cohorts....

Awwww shucks! You lot are lovely.

Just peeking again - I might be wrong about the quoted work being by Sabine. It's attributed to William s Baring gould

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Baring-Gould

May or may not be relevant, but bearing in mind the family ties cropping up elsewhere it might be worth noting.

I received this a couple of hours ago via Facebook message...

 Quote: Hi there. I know I barely know you all but for some reason my mom wants us to be friends. Something has happened to her I think and I really need help. I just don't know what to do. Vanessa xxx

Interesting Claire is using her middle name. I've replied.

I've also tried seeing if Cardui is still contactable...

Going back a bit, I looked at Vlad's Happy Old Years message again and thought about the references to Pi(e). In a mathematical equation an X is an unknown digit. Wondered if 230112 was more than a date but part of a chain of numbers, with the xxxx after being the numbers he wanted.

So. I searched Pi using a helpful online tool. 230112 is there, followed by 1939. Strangely datelike. Anyone know what happened in that year that might be significant.

In other news, I received a birthday card seemingly from an in game character. I'll put more details in later when I can....

Edit: 1939:

September 4 - Alan Turing and Gordon Welchman report to the United Kingdom Government Code and Cypher School, Bletchley Park.[5]

Any ideas?

An initial search only returns

Lyrics are:

A little more correspondence with Vanessa...

 Quote: Me: Hi there. I just wanted to let you know that I'm still working on those strange letters in the email you sent. I'm sure others are too. I wanted to ask you what the name of your hamster was. It may not help but I want to investigate every possibility. Thanks. Hang in there. Her: Hey thanks so much for your help. My hamster was called Mathison, but I can't understand why she's mentioned him as she knows full well that he died years ago. Anyways if you hear anything from my mum please let me know. I am so worried about her. India is so far away. Love Vanessa xxx

Mathison was Turing's middle name. I'm not sure if that helps with the code or if it's just another reference to Turing. I don't remember India coming up before, but I could have missed something. Is India a clue or is it a plot point that I overlooked?
