Well, we got our 2nd update today. Here's a summary of the day's events:
It is discovered that after e-mailing the address firstname.lastname@example.org which was found on Sam Thomas' laptop an automated message is received back. In addition, the recorded message on Georgia Cavanagh's voice mail reached using the contact information from the Oceanic press release has changed. Also, it is found that Sam Thomas has a profile on the networking sites Facebook and a MySpace account. New information is added to Find815.com which reveals Sam waking up in the night to a loud banging noise which turns out to be a tree banging against the window. He then sees an image of Sonya in the glass which startles him. We, as the participants are then left to search his bed room for clues from Season's 1, 2, & 3. You must then go to ABC.com or Yahoo!7 to find the clue from Season 4 (a simple word) which you can enter back in the ARG screen and reveals a new phone number for Oceanic.
In more detail:
Earlier in the day, some users had emailed some of the emails which were found on the "email" section of the Find815.com website. One emailer, email@example.com, emailed users and stated:
"Since the dawn of our species, man's been blessed with curiosity. Your curiosity will be rewarded.
Zeke Klotho Freundlich"
Zeke is of course the nickname that Sawyer gave to Mr. Friendly (Tom), and in fact "Freundlich" is German for "Friendly."
There was also a new message found at the number on the Oceanic press release:
To log into your mailbox, press 81. To call an attendant, press 0.
The numbers on the keypad corresponded to several commands, which can be seen on our wiki pages.
Networking sites were also found for Sam. A Facebook account here, and a Myspace account here.
An update at about 02:00 GMT gave us a clue hunt to search for. First we got a video of Sam sleeping, as he saw his girlfriend Sonya in a reflection. We were then shown Sam's room, and you had to find clues that corresponded to the first three seasons of Lost.
Season 1 Clue: CD of Driveshaft: "Live from Jakarta." Shows scenes of Driveshaft performing.
Season 2 Clue: Pearl necklace. Corresponds to The Pearl station.
Season 3 Clue: Rocking chair. Corresponds to scenes of Jacob in The Man Behind the Curtain.
You were then told to go to a sister site, such as Yahoo!7 or ABC.com, where you were instructed to play the "Pack Sam's Bag" game in order to progress and get an exclusive Season 4 Clue. The code was either "Matthew" or "Abaddon."
You were then given the final clue for the night, the Oceanic Hotline number: 888-548-0034. Late in the evening, the clue was changed to this:
Thank you for calling the Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 Hotline. Information is updated as the investigation proceeds. Investigations are thorough and as such may take a period of time to complete.
