Rabbit Hole #1 for Project Ophiuchus

--ATTENTION: THIS IS A CONFIDENTIAL AUTOMATED MESSAGE. PLEASE DELETE IF YOU
HAVE RECEIVED THIS EMAIL BY MISTAKE.--

Status: Phase 11 complete.


came from adminSPLATprojectophiuchus.com

www.projectophiuchus.com

in the source code, there's a loooooooong hidden string of letters, and a comment segment made up of triplets of capitalized letters. both are near the bottom of the source.

so? what's goin on here?

For the letters in the source code, ignore html code such as the form variable:
Quote:
< input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" id="__VIEWSTATE" value="/...." >
I see that as a way they track unique views of the page. It may mean the page appearance will change over time.

For the letters hidden in html comments, those are where your clues are to be found:
Quote:
PME, PAP, LHR, TUL, AID, JBC, INV, KPA, BLA, NHT, NTC, KES, SFO, LHR, FOO, UBR, OLD, YLD, BGR, BEK, DTW, ACY, CRT, CFN, EDI, EDA, YET, HEM, KAF, KTT, EXT, YXD, HRT, ELO, LRG, JSN, AJS, CLN, FRF...
The elipses at the end imply that the list is incomplete or is a progression. My first guess is that "SFO" is the airport code for San Francisco, but I haven't checked out any of the others. It may well be a coded message, or a suggestion for future activity.

They are all airport codes. Unsure of what the relevance to a zodiac constellation. Sorry I don't have the time right now to translate them all will get to it soon if nobody else does.

Found this site http://www.world-airport-codes.com/ that gives you the airport location as well as latitude and longitude. Wonder if we need to map these out.

I'm passing this on to you all as I'm at work... dying to get to it though!!!!

I thought there might be a possible zodiac reference because of the 13 gif images.

London Heathrow appears twice on the airport codes
