What is "Hesinat?"
Is this a trailhead, or just something weird?

Okay, ARGamers, mind lending me your detective skills here?

While Googling possible monster names for a fantasy story, I stumbled upon this site. It's not in any language Chrome recognizes, and anagram and cryptogram solvers are no help.

It looks like all the posts were made on the same day, back in July. They all link to each other.

What the heck is this?

Same question, different domain, other people got nowhere with it.
http://www.unilang.org/viewtopic.php?p=814715

Comparing your example to http://www.mibeami.com/ makes it seem like a template coming from somewhere, as both are blogs with a "Siarchu" box for searches. The two domains are hosted on entirely different servers, so it's not like they share a webhost template.

Randomly generated gibberish, that's my guess.

Interestingly, I found one page on that first site with plain English in the sidebar. Same template and subdomain, just a different base directory.

A little deeper in the unilang.org forum reveals the owner (indeed, "joepet") came forward on the overclocker forum:

Hi, I'm Joe. I created mibeami one day last year when I was really bored.

If you don't mind reading butt-ugly Perl, you can find the code for the text generation here:

http://www.mibeami.com/hioverclockerforumpeople.txt

Mibeami was a word on the first page of text that I really liked, so it became the name of the site. Then I just let the script run and let the site grow and grow...

My hope was that it would get some people talking, and that maybe some people would take it seriously enough to come up with some interesting theories...so I was ecstatic to come across people postulating about a government global warming plot. Thanks for making my day!

The perl code in no longer available though Razz (the file exists still, presumably as evidence)

Hesinat

"doonehdin" was what cuaght my attention.
bored, i searched for doonehdin (which is how W Farrell pronounces Dunedin in Anchorman2).
i too found your language untranslatable and searched for what it might mean.
thanks to thebruce for asking and thanks to joepet for answering
