So here's a little update about the black book. In #ARG on Freenode, counterops agent Meki has been hammering away at training Tesseract OCR against the pictures of the black book. It was slow going at first, and personally I've had a lot of experience using OCR (or trying to) and had very little faith that it was going to work. It seems 10 years is an eternity in OCR software development. Meki has achieved OCR scans with about 0.5% error rate, and perhaps 90-95% of the errors in OCR are transcription errors with the letter "B" and the number "8". This is profoundly good in terms of OCR, and Meki deserves a lot of praise for his hard work and dedication. I had been shopping around for outsource transcription services (like India or the Philippines where this kind of labor is relatively cheap), but using this method, we could do this ourselves, since the task has now become proofreading instead of transcribing. I have no estimates for this workload, but I think the future of this encrypted text has just gotten a lot brighter. Thanks, Meki!

It looks like we might be preparing for a new drop! Region 7 includes Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. Region 10 is Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

Also, after a long time without updates, we finally have a new message on Robby's voicemail:

Thank you. We can finally link potential players to this excellent summary instead of saying "go read 75 pages of UF forum posts". Thanks, Adah. Awesome.


And then after they read it maybe players like you will stop chasing them away like you did me. If you intend to try and participate in this game be ready to be called a troll any and every time you do something until you somehow prove yourself to loljk.

Hmm. I'm not sure what this is about, but if you've got specific grievances, post them. Or better, PM me and we can talk. Otherwise you are actually trolling.
