    Ok, that's it, Brandon...it looks like the flaming is going to continue. Please start kissing Puresque and expressing your love for her. After all, when puzzles leave us blind, love keeps us kind.

    I have been holding off on posting much so as not to clutter this thread with nothing that contributes to solving this thing but I wanted to say this:

    It's clear that the ATS puzzles were a success. The fan community had tons of fun solving them and it helped hype up the new album really well. Fans were hoping for some more puzzles or something similar for the new album cycle and they gave it to us. I believe that since the ATS puzzles were solved relatively quickly, those working with the band figured they'd give us something a little more challenging to deepen the experience and unfortunately totally missed the mark. It pains me to say this but I think they over estimated the fans ability to solve these things just a bit. They made this one too difficult for a majority of us. The only reason we got this far is because Stl22 made a lucky guess (I believe he said something along these lines himself, correct me if i'm way off here). Besides the whole Sudo solve terminal bit, nobody has really come up with anything substantial because they have an understanding of what's going on. It's all just been everyone taking wild guesses. Hopefully the rest of what the band has in store for us is a little less frustrating because after a certain point, it stops being fun and ends up being a chore.

    tl;dr this puzzle is too hard yo.

    edit: hopefully i'm just being cynical about the whole thing and everything will make perfect sense and work itself out soon. :)

    In linux
    sudo -> admin's rights
    kill -> close an application like taskkill in Windows (Task Manager)
    <pid> -> It's a number that id an app or a process

    Why must we take things said on the interwebz so seriously?

    This sounds good, I'm going to revisit that summary post of stl22's line of thought as well, maybe find something we overlooked...

    I completely agree, I think they missed the mark. they were trying to make it harder and fun. and they made it not fun (for most people) and too hard. and we are getting tired of this

    The puzzles are definitely more difficult, but the frustration mostly stems from the lack of direction, I think. Until _Depression tweeted Uprising Creative, it was impossible to tell if anyone was on the right track. Now we play the waiting game.

    Now tweet that to LP and Mike!

    Can we please get back to theorising about stuff. I don't have a computer available right now so I'm counting on you guys for crazy theories that I might be able to expand upon.

    Patience..? Hmm, I guess we will just have to wait for the puzzle to be over or something!?
    Puzzle piece #11 should give us some more closure..

    Because they're trying to be cryptic. I highly doubt it's a real account.

    There is a URL with the words "living things" in it so I thinks it pretty conclusive that living things are the words we are looking for.

    Something interesting.
    The puzzles with 0's are: 4(d), presumably 8(h), 12(l), and 15(o).
    This could be arranged "hold." I don't know if this was noticed or mentioned earlier. There is nothing obvious to do after this, nor is their a clear connection to "living things," (hold living things?) so I'm assuming it is a dead end, but I thought it was interesting.

    I agree, I'm thinking we gone as far as we can go right now, let's just wait for the next one.
