    One thing I noticed is that div codes are used in sudo var code.
    Exchanging them with each other doesn't seem to yield anything usefull. Don't think that will give us something in the end though.

    At this point I'm totally stuck.

    I tried that earlier and didn't see anything, but maybe somebody else will get different results since there are many ways to combine them together.

    Don't lock the thread because some wish to take a step back. If you want to wait, then by all means. However, there will still be some curious folk working on it, and it'd help them to have space to bounce ideas off of one another.
    If/when the band realise we're not making progress/are stumped, they'll offer some form of clue. Which will be just as cryptic, no doubt.

    I just wanna throw one last idea out there. I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but maybe the 5. 4. means 5th album track 4? Burn it Down being track number 4 on the next album?

    I said 30 pages ago to stop feeding the trolls, but why would LPA lock a thread on a traffic money maker like this thread?

    All I know is, this puzzle isn't as obvious as past puzzles. This is a little more complicated and there's more work to be done. It's just where to start, that's the problem. We have some good leads with the source code and base64 links and the similarities with other puzzles like this shown here: Cyber Security Challenge - Cipher Competition Winner

    I seriously think it has something to do with numbers, decoding and links... but where and what, I have no idea.

    Saying that something or someone is gay isn't an insult at all. Claiming that calling someone or something gay is an insult.. that is homophobic.

    If it's worth anything, during complaining to Adam (part of which he trolled me by posting on twitter :lol:), he did tell me that the answer is not "painfully obvious" and that this actually IS a tough puzzle. And this is coming from someone who knows the answer because he's been helping WORK on it. So if he admits its difficult; perhaps you guys need to stop beating yourselves up over it, because it's clearly a hard puzzle.

    No worries, the band has a "schedule" they want to adhere by for this promotional campaign. I'm confident if nobody figures it out by midnight tonight, we'll get something to help us on our way. We WILL have this solved by Tuesday, whether it's because of a clue, or because all puzzle pieces are up. Stay positive folks.

    We're not locking the thread...there's a puzzle that hasn't been solved yet. If you're tired, log off and enjoy the real world. Otherwise, help us solve this damn thing.
