Transfer of Information.

I've had a request to summarize this for wide publication.

Can I do so?

Just didn't want to step on any toes at all. Better safe than sorry.

Summary is enclosed below in this post and in a text file.

Summary of the Landau Luckman Lake matter.

Sapagoo was first to notice this, and his PDF also had MP3 files attached. The DTMF tones on the MP3s spelled out:

0814403948
0679444815

Gupfee was next to post. Hers contained two alpha codes:

aghjeeeibf aeigcchibc

mottjr noticed that this codestring is limited to ten alpha characters and working under the assumption that a = 0, her codestrings were: 0679444815 0486227812.

vpisteve posted that he had received a different kind of codestring:
MDgxNDQwMzk0OA0K MDY3OTQ0NDgxNQ0K --- MDgxNDQwMzk0OA0K MDUyNTk0NjY0MA0K


Sapagoo responded that this was Base64 encoded, and the resultant strings when run through a decoder were:

0814403948
0679444815
0814403948
0525946640

imbri posted that she received a codestring as well: 1KNETWEDT9 1TVJWBU0TH 0T1QNHCVHM 0T0H11JGTM

Sapagoo felt that this was a code that was phone related and came up with:

1563893389
1885928084
0817642846
0804115486

Jamesi posted his files, sapagoo ran the MP3s through a DTMF decoder and came up with:

0131014005
0804115486
0804115486
0782129447

I posted my files, and mottjr decoded:

original code:
bijchegacg aiaebbfeig aahbdfhedc ajdicjaai

1892746026
0804115486
0071357432
093829008

imbri and Diandra cooperated to find a meaning for several of these numbers, and stumbled across ISBNs for Books. Most of the numbers matched up with Book Titles. Some include alchemy texts, a history of spying in WW II and other odd titles.

Diandra and cyberjoek also received photos with their posts. CJ's included a photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue, diandra's photos were diverse and numerous.

petbugs also posted numbers: 0393317552 0486227812 0814403948 0131014005 0393317552

Which coincides with a bunch of books. Take the first letter of each and you have Going (thanks Dashcat!)

Taking all this in context, sapagoo worked up the following lexicon:

petbugs - GOING
sapagoo - IT
gupfee - TO
vpisteve - IT IS
imbri - ?AKE
jamesi - NEED
cortana - HEL? (maybe a P?)
teuqus - I AM


Dashcat posted a set of codes received by necessitas:
01XJ11MGIK 1UVKZAU0TG 01D101H00J 01D101G00J
0ITOACQT1A 0MQWHGIT1J

Her ISBNs were:
0195116445 CMOS
1885928084 Alchemy
0131014005 Nanotechnology
0131014005 Nanotechnology
0486227812 Osiris
0679444815 Timeline

which spells Cannot. (thanks sapagoo)

So we have

GOING
IT
TO
IT IS
?AKE
NEED
HELP
I AM

Just one small correction. Imbri's letters are _ A K E, not AIE.

Thanks for the summary Cortana, it helps a lot.
