Clue #108 - Fragment Code "44KU2VKQ" & Sign Language Clue
Fragment Code "44KU2VKQ" was hinted at yesterday on Ninja's Blog and was photographed and posted while we Americans slept.. The video fragment on hansoexposed.com is of Mittelwerk saying, "We all know what happened. The DHARMA Initiative failed."
Sign Language Clue
Remember the "nanite" glyph that we finally found on Trevtrevtrevor's Flickr page? His page was updated with a glyph for "Chocolates". The caption for the Chocolates glyph is "call tom k yegato". Also, if you go to Sublymonal.com and type in Chocolates you get "call tom k yegato"
If you type TOM K YEGATO into a phone, you get 866-593-4286. When you call that toll free number (as of 8/16), you get a recording in an English accent that says, "Sod off, I'm watching the tube." The recording will play three times, then hang up. If you then go to YouTube and search for "rblake" you'll find a video called "The Chocolate Factory" by CHARLABEELK which is another anagram for RACHEL BLAKE. In the video, there is someone doing sign language while wearing what appears to be a glyph t-shirt!
Several members of the community have been working tirelessly at translating the sign language. Here is a summary of what Trace, Kinetic, PhD, Pilferk, and KJ came up with: DISCLAIMER: Because of low video quality and the non-clarity/bad grammar of the signer (even to the "experts") and the fact that we couldn't see his face (important in sign language), this is a general consensus but not the end-all, be-all answer. There are some areas where translators have amicably disagreed, so we've used parentheses to show other possibilities.
"I am Mel, friend of Rachel. (Friend of Rachel - I sell Apollo Candy.) Apollo Candy conned Mittlewerk (or vice-versa) into having chemists run tests on...[unclear finger spelling]. Hackett found something important, but Mittlewerk wouldn't allow the results to be given to the competition (he hates the competition), they had a huge argument, and Hackett took...[more unclear fingerspelling] and found a new person to give the information to, who will distribute it. (something about giving away, reference to apollo bar giveaway?) I have to warn (help) people."
This is the best we've come up with so far.
