[ARG?] Eon8 - First post updated.
I can't seem to find much information about this elsewhere 'sides for a few other forums, but people seem to think it's an ARG.
Deployment logs have got me most interested. Umm. Comments?
EDIT: Alright. This thread has really gotten too large, so I'm going to start compiling useful things here.
ONE: Don't Brute Force.
TWO: Don't dDos it.
THREE: ... Please don't.
eon8 is basically counting down to July 1st. No one knows why, no one knows who's behind it, and no one knows what the password and username for the project pages is.
A site that you might want to look at is www.eon8.com/security. This isn't accessible from the eon8.com page, so I just thought I'd put it up. This site lists referrers. Earlier, there was some whacko war between YTMND and 4Chan or something. Beats me.
And yes. If you press Ctrl+A, it will highlight text down the bottom of the page.
Yes. You can adjust the time on your computer clock to alter the countdown on the page, but it won't get you anywhere.
The Digit Dreams link led nowhere (it was found on the security page, only a page containing "moo" linking to eon8 and an images folder containing one image), however it only gave us the name "OSCAR" (a dog) and a number, which was kind of unclear. I think someone called it already, but nothing happened.
The Deployment Tracker page changes, yes. Yes, some logs are in different colors. ItWasn'tMeISwear posted:
|I believe, as most others have already said, that the letters/numbers in the "Deployment Tracker" are simply our IPs encrypted.
And, since the "Log" matches the "Tracker" I would assume that the same applies to that as well (only that the "Log" gives a small portion of the "Tracker" information... possibly just the lastest IPs to visit).
As such, the site logs everyone's IP, browser, etc. when you access it -- don't panic.
eon8 has been around for 85 days. At least one of the servers is located in Dallas, Texas if you look up whoIs. The site is running MySQL on an Apache System and a PHP setup. If you stumble upon it, the PHP manual is not important.
At one stage, eon8 had pages mocking a few forum members, or something like that. Those pages are long gone, however they didn't have much on them except an image and quotes.
AND. Oh yeah, how could I forget to mention? YES. Looking at the security certificate will give you securitySPLATeon8.com. Please don't point it out again. People are going to scream.
Also, AIM messages have been exchanged lately. There have been messages sent out from "Eon8Countdown". There are also various people pretending to be the creators, but nothing is concrete so far.
- eon8theinvestigation.ytmnd.com - not a parody, but a sort of summary... I guess?
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_1 - events that have occured on July 1st.
- eon8whatthehellisit.blogspot.com/ - URL kind of sums it up.
"Please immediately consult C22:S13 of your handbook for further instructions."
C22:S13 could mean: Chapter 22 Section 13 in the bible:
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End
But the reference to X13600 triggered off some sparks in my mind. X13600 is a dunce gene found in the common fruit fly or Drosophila melanogaster.
- Viral marketting.
- Something to do with WarGames (that movie). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086567/
- It's related to Infinium Labs.
- It's a psychology experiment.
- It's just for fun.
- Nuclear launches.

Did I miss anything? Heh, probably. Just send me a PM, or IM me on AIM.
THANKS: Aydoo. Yep.
