I have a few theorys... 1. The number at the bottom is something to with what you get when you add the numbers up(if u presumed a=1) in a certain way or something like that

2. The arrows might show the ammount you have to add or subtract from a puzzle to give you the correct anagrams or something like(c=3 + 2 = e)

3. There may be a starting point somewhere where if you follow it it will take you through every letter(ie arrow pointing down move down 1, 2 down move 2 down etc)

Thats strange cause when i put it into the box and click submit nothing happens

Are you using Opera? If you use Opera, you don't get the countdown timer and the submit button doesn't use anything.

I used IE7 :p

But that's what they WANT you to do so whatever.

Back to January 8th, 6:30pm @ Las Vegas

CES 2007 starts on January 8th - http://www.cesweb.org/attendees/default_flash.asp

But interestingly finished at 6pm - An after show party @ 6:30pm perhaps ?

If the question is who is loki, then the answer is Son of Odin. Thats 9 letters? Maybe that might help?

If you reverse RIRAUG you get GUARIR, which according to Google Translate, is 'to recover' in italian...? But I doubt it's related.

Remember the somewhat similar campaign Microsoft had for their Origami platform? Well maybe this has something to do with Microsoft's new codename Vistagami; the Origami running Vista. They're supposedly making a big deal out of it at CES 2007. :whistle:

Vistagami = Origami's 'recovery'?

Just a thought. :rofl:

I figured out why the cursor changes on riraug that because the page has a hidden field if you go to page source or info youll find the hidden field i thnik the value is the same as the previous one maybe it just got hidden so that the first page doesnt interfere with the 2nd puzzle

Well, I don't normally do this, but since you guys were first on the scene, here's a cypher key for you. Impressive job!

More to come....but not delivered like this. Keep your eyes on the Post.

Good luck!

viral spam! :angry:

my plans to soil the neowin trek to "discover" this marketing has been twarted.

Who else is filled with glee that Neowin is both on board with Microsoft, XBOX, and a game publisher, so much so that we've not only have been targeted by their campaign, but have been lead to it, and have eaten it up? Doesn't everyone feel like a tool? I bet evilpupil would be ****ed. left_finger.gif

I don't suppose anyone had a look at the code of the setup as i recokn if you change all the information in the javascript files(i don't know any javascript so can't have a go at this) using the clsid of all the flash files in the whole crytogram which are in the javascript files is it possible to get in that way. Just a thought.
