Gotcha. I figured. I'm pretty new to this stuff, so I thought I'd ask!

Anyway, for posterity, the morse code says this:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

SOMETIMES THINGS ARRIVE OUT OF
ORDER SEARCH FOR OILSANDS

searching for
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

oilsands


yields another video, with speed-morse code at the bottom of the frames.

The morse code says
Spoiler (Rollover to View):

getting rich


Haven't figured out what to do with that yet though.

So anything here....

So any code here that has already unlocked a video just delivers "invalid entry" when typed into the heart input box? (and is that where completed clues go to unlock the vid?) so only one player gets the AhHa experience of unlocking the video and watching it appear?

yes 1 person gets the aha

intermediate words/phrases require searching in the magnifying glass box.

any word/phrase that comes from a page including the red symbol clicky will likely be a passcode for a video and be entered in the heart box

Current Puzzle - "never enough"
So when you search for "never enough"

Hey guys . . . I'm new to this whole thing but kinda got sucked in (I love a good puzzle) . . .

So when you search for "never enough" you get one Love Letter with a video and some text. One of the commenters on their blog mentioned that the letters in the text spell 'spectralhiding' -- But I'm with the second commenter-- what is that?

a google search turned up some academic thing that talks about "Practical information hiding technique for multi-spectral remote sensing image" http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=18143610 but the abstract is a little dense for me, so I'm not sure that purchasing the full text is going to help

More on the - "never enough" puzzle

Okay, so I started asking a friend who is more audio inclined and he mentioned that this is probably referring to 'hiding' an image inside of a audio track (apparently Aphex Twin sometimes does this?). He said that we need to run the audio through some sort of program that can generate a spectrogram.

I'm at work (I know, shame on me for working on puzzles instead of reports) and can't install anything here, but maybe someone else wants to try it (or if no one has posted anything, I can try when I get home).

Yeah, I had the same thought -- and I have the same problem (I'm at work)! It HAS to be hidden audio. Are we the only three-five people playing this game?? Surely somebody can decode it...

Unlocked
but only because I was fooling around waiting for the file conversion

So I unlocked the video (weee! that was exciting) . .. but I didn't get a chance to try out the whole spectrogram image hiding thing (although I was on my way, I swear)

Here's what happened:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
I went to the youtube clip from the loveletterstothefuture by clicking on the youtube logo in the video. I had a hugely difficult time finding an online flash converter that would actually just extract the audio. While I was waiting for the conversion, I noticed the title of the video on youtube, "these images are real"

I was going to enter it into the white search box on the site to see if there was another Love Letter-- but I entered it into the unlock box at the top instead (just was on auto pilot I guess) and - BAM - the video unlocked.

A little anticlimactic, I know


Anyway the text at the end of the new video says
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
mores

And once again I'm at work. Somebody decode that video.

Spectrogram on the blog
its amazing how red you can turn when seeing your name in 'print' unexpectedly

Hey Reader Girl-- thanks for decoding the morse code (that made me go cross-eyed figuring that out)

So they posted a spectrogram for the blinky eye over on the blog http://loveletterstothefuture.blogspot.com/2009/12/blinkblinkblinkblink-blinkblink.html and made me blush. Guess they read the comments over there.

searching "playfair" gives a page titled "use numerals" with a video and likely a playfair cipher. video has a frame stating "use my name as the key"

don't have time to type the cipher text into a decoder now because of an upcoming physical chemistry exam. Sorry!

...and I've put it into every decoder I can find, and am getting only gibberish out. I even tried using "myname" as the key instead of "Maya," and nada.

What if the 'my name' means the polar bear in the video? Reader Girl, do you still have the text typed out? Want to try it?

Huh. That sort of works -- good idea! -- but not entirely. The first sentence looks like it should be "this is happening now," but that would mean that p=p, which is pretty unconventional. I'm confused. I'll keep poking at it.
