    Hey guys, I'm awake again :)

    I read through the last pages and I am obviously not happy that the BID site is down.
    I just wanted to remind you guys that the BID website IS NOT hosted on the same server as LP.com, because http://www.linkinpark.com/main etc are still accessible.
    Also, it is very likely that the LivingThings site is not hosted on any of these servers. It is easy to have websites with the same ending hosted on different servers if you own the address.

    Actually, the picture thay this weird @LP2K12 was showing exactly that. It showed a hosting system in which LP.com had an own IP, BID had an own IP and LT had an own one.
    That was what actually led me to the idea that account COULD be legit, 'cause what he drew there looks very right to me and who the hell, if not someone from the puzzle crew, knows the hosting system of the websites by heart?

    Anyway: Whether it's legit or not,
    BID =/= LP.com.
    They are clearly hosted on different servers.

    Now I hope the BID server will get fixed soon and our progress will still be there D:

    By giving us the answer.

    Due to the length of the downtime, this is certainly not an edit.

    I have a feeling this was done on purpose... But I also have a feeling no one in the band or who works on the website even knows it's down as they're likely all sleeping.

    For a moment I was playing with the idea that this "error" might occur on purpose.
    But why are they doing this then?
    Is there something we have missed that we were supposed to solve before the 15th puzzle somes up?
    My idea could also be nonsense and they're really having server issues.
    Now I wish LP would say something. -.-

    This just breaks my heart having the puzzle unavailable! Regardless if it is completed tomorrow.

    The consensus on the forum is to consider them nothing more than false leads. There's nothing said by the band to state that this is true.

    Isn't it obvious that the site is down FOR the next puzzle. When the puzzle is released, the site will be up with NEW content. Isn't that obvious...

    It would be obvious if the site was down for other puzzles too. And there's two more left, isn't there? This and the next?

    The LP 2K12 video that Mike confirmed, does this mean the strings of 0 in the code is K? If so, we have:

    Does not make sense but I do have a hunch that they are trying to tell us that Living Things is NOT the deal here, as is with all the rumours.

    The 2K12 is not significant. The only reason they went with LP2K12 is because LP2012.tumblr.com was already taken.

    btw anyone noticed that the current bid error is just a plain text "Internal Server Error"? There should be some html code on the website but apparently it's done like that on purpose :p Also if it would be an internal error we should get a 500 code next to it right?
