    Well, I did the first puzzle (all by myself :) ) And I puzzled for like 15 minutes... It was pretty difficult to fix those stripes tho.

    I'll take a look in the source code to find out what the timer does, because it says 9:30 PST for me.

    EDIT: Not much to see in the code about that timer... :(

    Has anyone tried reverse engineering the sudo solve?

    Video recording it, playing it in slow motion, using it as a tutorial to solve the puzzle manually without the command?

    Well, that's not really needed when you're able to go to the Terminal. Type over "SUDO SOLVE()" (I think copy, paste wouldn't work, didn't use the cheat myself so I'm not sure). Then just go to the source, search for "Sudo". Copy that code and paste it on the place where the terminal asks for a Password.

    The puzzle is probably just one 16th of an artwork. Is it going to be the single artwork or album artwork? I think it's going to be album.

    Why would it be the album cover if the page says "Linkin Park - Burn It Down" and the whole thing is about unlocking snippets of the song?

    Well, i don't expect them to belt out another 15 puzzles unevenly, considering it is already April 6. Although, i could be wrong.

    Yeah, this is about Burn It Down. There will be no album artwork or song titles hidden in these puzzles. If anything they'll come after the 16th when Burn It Down is released. The only thing the art in the puzzles may do is hint to what the art direction is for this album cycle.

    On another note, Does this part of the puzzle even have snippets of the song?

    They said "2 Quadrants a day". There are 15 puzzles left. 15 divided by 2 = 7,5. So they could easily put out all the puzzles before release...
    It wouldn't make sense if the whole thing is about Burn it Down (burnitdown.linkinpark.com, the title, the meaning of finding snippets etc.) and the image wouldn't be the single cover.
    Also, the image pretty much reflects something abstract about "Burn It Down". The black body, the ashes etc.

    EDIT:
    @RazorEye No it doesn't :(

    Well, I didn't catch the 2-a-day before. :disgust: Although it's been up since last night, and there doesn't seem to be another puzzle to solve. Maybe they stuffed up and they'll give us 3 tomorrow for lost time?

    It's only been up roughly 9 hours. The rumored next puzzle coming between 4:30 - 05:00am PST would mark a 12 hour time period. A new puzzle every 12 hours makes perfect sense in my mind and would mean two puzzles a day. We'll see.

    What I gather from next_time = "2012-04-06 04:30:00 -0500" is that it is that something should occur in 5 minutes whether that be a new new puzzle or not.
