Clue #23 - We Think Persephone = Rachel
"I've reverse engineered all of the shockwave files and extracted code from them...and...
There is one thing I have learned that seems important: in the source for the letters section, they reference the red text that is printed "The Hanso Foundation, setting world speed records for subverting authority." with the name "RACHEL." This could mean that we will see the name Rachel pop up sometime in the future, either as Persephone's real name or another hacker of the site. I encourage everyone therefore to keep an eye out for the name Rachel on Lost."
5/8 email from Andy:
"So, while I was waiting for the major May 8th update and obsessively checking the last-modified dates of each of the swf files, I noticed that Joop_2.swf was modified this morning (the file that deals with the letters and whatnot). I took a look at the file and noticed nothing
different, so I downloaded it and looked through the code.
It turns out that the ABC people must have seen your post regarding my info on Rachel, because they've renamed the function in the script so the word Rachel isn't there anymore. Apparently, they didn't want us to know the name yet, and it was important enough to conceal that upon finding that they'd left the name in there and I'd found it/you posted it, they promptly stripped it out.
So, it's not much, but it's an update - and it shows that ABC is watching you."
Everyone needs to give due KUDO'S to my man Andy! It looks like he may have given us a cool sneak peak at what is to come...
