    Default Stadther Speaks...

    I spoke with Mike today. Please see below:

    ============================================

    (2:12:42 PM) Tweleve: hi there
    (2:12:46 PM) Tweleve: hows it going?
    (2:12:59 PM) Mike: hi
    (2:13:08 PM) Tweleve: hey - long time how are things?
    (2:13:17 PM) Tweleve: hope you and family are well
    (2:13:17 PM) Mike: things are okay
    (2:13:21 PM) Mike: same
    (2:13:25 PM) Tweleve: thx -
    (2:13:43 PM) Tweleve: hadn't spoken in a while just wanted to touch base - any details on happenings?
    (2:14:50 PM) Mike: not sure where we left off... bankruptcy settled. contest over. released a few new clues.
    (2:16:29 PM) Mike: basically says:
    (2:16:52 PM) Mike: simple, english, Zac has the secret

    (2:18:07 PM) Tweleve: I want to be clear that my focus is just detailing whether or not people should continue looking -
    (2:18:31 PM) Tweleve: i mean, can we finally say yes, the submission method is intact and you will be able to confirm solve?
    (2:18:48 PM) Mike: rings went to trustee. so, solution is for personal satisfaction. but, its SIMPLE.
    (2:18:52 PM) Mike: yes
    (2:19:27 PM) Tweleve: its hard for you to imagine how its stayed unsolved this long?
    (2:19:39 PM) Mike: i agree.
    (2:19:50 PM) Mike: its really simple.
    (2:20:51 PM) Mike: i also quoted later in the book something like: "the symbols swirled in his mind and formed anew." not exact but close enough.

    (2:21:44 PM) Tweleve: Anything preventing you from dropping a tidbit on us?
    (2:23:45 PM) Mike: im happy with the fans. im sorry S&S put me under. im sorry for the hunt resuts. if something revives, ill follow it. the solution is SIMPLE. look in the HCB!
    (2:24:24 PM) Tweleve: i really appreciate you chatting with us
    (2:24:29 PM) Mike: np

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    I'm glad to hear the solution wasn't compromised by the bankruptcy. The submission method has been confirmed as being intact and Stadther can confirm a solution. He says it's SIMPLE.

    There are no rings people. Its not a meta-hunt or an ARG. There will be no prize but that that of the personal satisfaction (and admiration of your peers!) that you will receive for puzzling the appropriate puzzle in the appropriate way.

    Simple! English! Zac has the Secret! Look in the HCB!

    Remember how ATT worked? How SIMPLY it worked? After all of the insane stuff I theorized and contemplated...

    I'd like to see a push to refocus efforts on this one. I believe it could be cracked directly and we are not cracking for nothing (or only the hope of something). The submission method is intact and Mike can confirm solves.

    DO IT FO DE POZZLE

    It's about friggin time the obvious was stated with the rings and the status of the hunt. It's B/S it took this long for confirmation of what many had thought and known before. It's also b/s that he's not releasing crap for info on anything unsolved, its almost like he is thumbing his nose at the people who supported him. He's sorry the hunt was f'd up? Really? Prove it! I'm glad I didn't keep up with this much after ATT, or I'd feel more put off than I do right now.

    I do find it slightly interesting that Mike used "our" acronym: HCB.......

    me too, and no mention of BOS pg 6, which most thought was the key to the HCB
    instead its zac
    (2:16:52 PM) Mike: simple, english, Zac has the secret

    So how are we to know if anyone submits a solution? Are we to just believe them when they post "I solved it!" ? Will Mike start a list of all of the people who submitted correct solutions? And post it somewhere? Will there be a cyber space balloon drop? Not enough satisfaction for me.

    Stadther and his puzzle can jump off a cliff as far as I'm concerned.
