    (/-__-) I've look at the source code just as much as anybody else here. What I'm saying is that another password, could cause a different reaction to the terminal command. Just because it's not put there in the code in plain english, doesn't mean that it's not coded in in some other way. And I'm also not saying that I whole heartedly believe this is going to be right, just throwing out a decent theory. Obviously, we don't know what to do when we figure out the numbers/letters, and i think this is a decent possibility.

    Some of you think that we won't be able to solve it without the missing pieces of the puzzle. I don't think so. Days ago Mike was talking about "more than meets the eye" and "there's more" and so on. That wouldn't make sense at all if we wouldn't be able to solve it without the missing pieces. I can't keep up with the HTML/Java/Whatever stuff, but I'm sure that the solution is there, now and already days ago probably.

    Okay to everyone treating "Living Things" as the correct answer, it's not that I'm 100% doubting this...but wouldn't you think that if that was the solution, with how much Mike, Adam and the rest of the LP crew are monitoring fansites/twitter feeds that Mike or someone else would've came out to congratulate fans for figuring it out like Mike did immediately after each ATS puzzle was solved?

    And wouldn't said correct answer lead us to snippets, since the whole goal of this puzzle in the first place was to unlock snippets? Mike said that we can unlock clips of the song via this puzzle. I don't know about you, but entering "Living Things" in the terminal, and trying combinations with URLs doesn't produce any snippets. I'd prefer to think if that was the answer, we would've had a piece of the song by now. Only being real here.

    It's not Living things though.

    It's currently something like LIV/_NG_TH_/N_/_
    Using "Living Things" literally obviously won't work. The zeroes mean something.

    Exactly. So everyone, move on.

    I'm sounding like a broken record, but we need to address the issue regarding the one letter word at the end. How can we be so sure that 0's equate to spaces? Many people think that maybe it's an anagram, but if that were true, inserting spaces would be pointless. So I doubt it's an anagram.

    Maybe the 0's denote some kind of mathematical operation that needs to be done, or something. I don't know.

    I said this elsewhere, but the spaces could denote that the answer is four words of varying lengths (3 letters, 7 letters, 2 letters, 1 letter). An anagram would still work with those restrictions.

    I suppose that's not impossible, but I've never seen an anagram puzzle where the letters AND the order of the word lengths are mixed up. Besides, we really wouldn't need to know the varying word lengths...there wouldn't be that many possibilities to try after we have all the letters

    Please need to stop posting random shit in this thread that doesn't benefit the puzzle solvers. Please chat in other threads such as random chat. Here, let's stay on topic and plow through this puzzle. No trolling, not bullshit, no random shit, and definitely no being stupid.

    OK so using binary AND and OR on the 4 digit numbers didn't get anywhere. Do not go down yonder path.


    And now I just thought to try NOT and compare them. Oh man. Here I go again.



    Random fun fact, NULL (true zero) in a string of characters means "end of string." Is that relevant? IDK.

    We're thinking of locking this thread (for posterity) and starting a Part 2 News Thread. Thoughts on this LP fans?

    Our reasons for locking the thread is that with 4,500 posts it's impossible to follow. Pages are coming too fast and fans can't understand what's going on. A new thread focused ONLY on the code that was posted as the "right track" would really help.

    Have you ever put your name into an anagram solver? There's, like, thousands of potential combinations of actual words. Hahaha

    My point is that this is literally impossible unless they change the code. I program in javascript for a living and I've read every line of javascript on the BID page. There is no secret password in the terminal, it simply can't exist with the way the code is setup right now.

    Yeah, and there's also a million LP fans :lol:.

    It really wouldn't take that long to enter in all the possibilities.

    O hai.

    We kind of like your idea. Allow this thread to be used for "puzzle piece updates" but make a separate thread that focuses ONLY on the number code as well.
