    I'll be in chat tonight from 9pm to 10pm EST. I'm willing to answer a few questions to get this part started. Stop by and say hi. I'll post a transcript of the relevant questions and answers afterwards so no one gets left out.

    In referance to the X's and O's this may have nothing to do with them, but they are often used to format computer things like the following link...http://www.commandprompt.com/community/pyqt/x2765. They are also used to play games on line too, like this one...http://www.godiscussions.com/forum/s...ead.php?t=1181, probably doesn't mean anything, but I thought I'd mention it.

    What about binary?
    if O and . are zeros and X and - are ones (the other way around wouldn't make sense) then we have 6 numbers (5, with one of them repeated). Not that I know what to do with those numbers, but maybe someone else will.

    Ah, found it, thanks for pointing out its new home cthree.

    Moscow was in chat and answered some more questions. Here they are to the best of my recollection. (I closed the wrong window and lost the actual text.)

    Is the orientation of the map significant to the order of letters?
    no- that was a mistake on my part. i was trying to make it look like a random city and forgot to blank out the letters on the park

    Is Count R. Erskine of significance to the solve?
    no, you’ll meet him again later. he was a cartographer.

    Are we to interpret the fact that the map was to be any random city, that it doesn’t matter that it shows New Orleans?
    yes, that is correct.

    Here is an article about our "Count" I know Moscow said that he is not part of the solve or something like that but found him interesting. Nothing I've read indicates he was a Count.
