Nereus,
I want to trust you...

You said that you physically received the code from "guy" who said that your "expertise will help" ?

Where did this exchange take place?

The Room641A reference fits with the AT&T link at the bottom of the initial emails we got. I was going to wait it out until October 8, but I'm impatient, so if he's willing to take outside help count me in, too.

There's this nagging Biblical theme that seems to be running through this -- Saul, the 'gabriel' codeword, "JC" -- or maybe that's the seminarian in me.

I found this off digg, once I got in I figured it'd be on unfiction.

There's some meta info on Digg's front page right now, including the person that some folks received red envelopes from (I believe this would be Saul)'s website.

Whoever is doing this is good enough to game Digg to get to the front page quickly.

I'll be on the IRC channel, and hope this one turns out good.

I do believe originally, according to http://infocult.typepad.com/infocult/2007/09/red-monday-myst.html?cid=84891034#comment-84891034 that the code was changed.

Original (Unverified)
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

For those who haven't gotten the password, here's the bit from the opening page's source code:
"code is gabriel
it's not the only one"
Other ones, eh?

I just noticed something interesting about the code change. It looks like someone who can edit the source has taken notice of Scotiobade.

for those who don't know that connection, "noonamimalano" is scotiobade's msn email with N's and M's switched.

(side note, trying to figure out what the name means, and best I could come up with is 'moo man in alamo' =P care to explain the meaning of the name scotiobade? Wink hehe)

Posted this, last night in the Algorithm: Black thread in error.
Copying here.

Just doing some additional Googling, I thought I'd post the text for the CALEA section noted in the original email

Quote:
47 USC 1007, CALEA ß 108

Sec. 1007. Enforcement orders

(a) Grounds for issuance

A court shall issue an order enforcing this chapter under section 2522 of title 18 only if the court finds that--

(1) alternative technologies or capabilities or the facilities of another carrier are not reasonably available to law enforcement for implementing the interception of communications or access to call-identifying information; and

(2) compliance with the requirements of this chapter is reasonably achievable through the application of available technology to the equipment, facility, or service at issue or would have been reasonably achievable if timely action had been taken.

(b) Time for compliance Upon issuing an order enforcing this chapter, the court shall specify a reasonable time and conditions for complying with its order, considering the good faith efforts to comply in a timely manner, any effect on the carrier's, manufacturer's, or service provider's ability to continue to do business, the degree of culpability or delay in undertaking efforts to comply, and such other matters as justice may require.

(c) Limitations An order enforcing this chapter may not--

(1) require a telecommunications carrier to meet the Government's demand for interception of communications and acquisition of call-identifying information to any extent in excess of the capacity for which the Attorney General has agreed to reimburse such carrier;

(2) require any telecommunications carrier to comply with assistance capability requirement of section 1002 of this title if the Commission has determined (pursuant to section 1008(b)(1) of this title) that compliance is not reasonably achievable, unless the Attorney General has agreed (pursuant to section 1008(b)(2) of this title) to pay the costs described in section 1008(b)(2)(A) of this title; or

(3) require a telecommunications carrier to modify, for the purpose of complying with the assistance capability requirements of section 1002 of this title, any equipment, facility, or service deployed on or before January 1, 1995, unless-- (A) the Attorney General has agreed to pay the telecommunications carrier for all reasonable costs directly associated with modifications necessary to bring the equipment, facility, or service into compliance with those requirements; or (B) the equipment, facility, or service has been replaced or significantly upgraded or otherwise undergoes major modification.

(Pub. L. 103-414, title I, Sec. 108, Oct. 25, 1994, 108 Stat. 4285.)


And another bit of info that hints at this being related to mobile podcasting.
Go down to the "Saturday, September 29, 2007" post.
