Keep on Going.... The next clue!!! the boy will die alone... RESEARCH IS THE KEY..... :)

Response to Try To Figure Out This Clue Site NG 2004-06-11 08:21:15


Those numbers are from an ASCII table. I translated everything in the source on that page, here's what I got:

------- First two lines (title and comment in source) ----------
On the Zuiderzee
That old fishing sea,
The Faeiries stole,
The boys of Marken

The old name of the site of the boy's disappearance is the name of the place you must go.

------- other stuff in source---------------
hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan
hinase hi(c) (e)nda thu
uu(at) unbida(n) (uu)e nu

My spacing might be off (newlines etc.), oh well if it is.

The title on the second page is kind of bothering me too (the page where you had to enter the username/password to go on). It says:

afg bbb bai bab adc aig bba baa adc ahd bab bab aef

If you use a = 0, b = 1, etc., then you get a numbers, which in ASCII again go to:

8ole Vnd Iee-

That's 8oLe ... iee (making sure of no discrepancies on i's and L's). I would say this is just gibberish, but the fact that there's 'adc' twice (which is 032, or a space) makes me think that it's supposed to mean something. "Bole und lee"? Maybe that means something in another language.

Next, I'm going to clear up what I posted above:

Here is the translation of the title of the page:

On the Zuiderzee
That old fishing sea,
The Faeiries stole,
The boys of Marken

Next, here is what was commented out in the HTML source:

The old name of the site of the boy's disappearance is the name of the place you must go.

There is some text "hidden" beneath the picture, highlight it and translate and you get:

hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan
hinase hi(c) (e)nda thu
uu(at) unbida(n) (uu)e nu

Lastly for the translations, here is what I got from Captain_HumpYourFace's 3 lines:

1590521471 fourth word add s
0060254920 fifth word
097**428*9last word

I'm not sure what those mean. Captain_HumpYourFace, if you can type out more of that stuff and post it here, I or whoever can translate it... I wrote a small python script to "automate" the translation, because I couldn't find anywhere online offhand that did multiple numbers at once.

The last thing worth mentioning is that in the popup that says "De jongen zal alleen sterven." the date that it puts in front is whatever the current date is on your system, according to the source.

That's all I've got for now, maybe more later.

Also possibly worth noting: there is no city in Colorado named "Niether" and 80230 is the zip code for Denver. Kris Boruff is mentioned on about 3 pages on Google, none of which seem to be of any use.

So I figured out that you can right click and save the image, but make sure you save it as a .gif. The second frame has the numbers. It's a huge bitch to transcribe the numbers, but I've got all of the first 9 lines now (assuming there have been no typos. I'm just going to put the translated versions:

1590521471 fourth word add s
0060254920 fifth word
097**428*9last word
0679731725 second word minus s
0894803204 fourth word
0736048146 first word
0785265392 first word
0970917902 eight word
1566912431 third word minus s

So, I'm not sure yet what the numbers mean... If anyone else wants to take a stab at it, please do by all means.

I've been working on this since the thread started, and I only solved the Alexander/Gordian one on my own. This second one is freakin impossible though. I love sites like this, but they also SUCK.

What boy? What myth? ahhh my brain hurts! So the way you get to the next page is coming up with a new url. not clicking on the page or anything like that.
