Sorry for the delay folks, here is the Chapter 3 Recap!
Chapter 3: Video Recap
I’m trying something a little different this week. Instead of having little video clips all over the place, the whole chapter is being put into one giant video! Here is the direct link.
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
var s1 = new SWFObject("/flvplayer.swf","vidcss","512","280","7"); s1.addParam("allowfullscreen","true"); s1.addVariable("file","/koobie/chapt3.flv"); s1.addVariable("image","/koobie/recap3thumb.jpg"); s1.addVariable("width","512"); s1.addVariable("height","280"); s1.write("player1");
Part One: Snooping Around the Christiane I
|Rummaging through Talbot’s Cabin
After the intro to the chapter, Sam wants to find out who Mr. Talbot works for. After seeing that Talbot left his cabin open, he decides to sleuth around. After some creative problem solving you will have access to Mr. Talbot’s briefcase. Notice that the letters A.M.M. are stamped on the front of the briefcase, then look up A. Mullins on the Satellite phone. His number is 259-852-930, since all the numbers have ‘259’ omit it, and the code to open the briefcase is 852-930.
|Strange Electrical Interference
While walking about the Chrisitane I at night Sam comes across some strange behavior by the electronics, then the Clue Hunt: Part 3 starts up.
|Mr. Talbot’s Search Grid
Once again you have to work for your season 4 clue, after finding the newspaper you are redirected to their network partner’s website. In this game you have to connect all the waypoint paths without going over the same patch twice. Here is DocArzt’s solution:

Here is the translation of the Season 4 Clue from DarkUFO:
|Sam’s Diary: Now with more Glitches!
Sam recaps his week, and announces that he has figured out the messages and will use Talbot’s Search Grid to find the location of Flight 815. There were also a hefty amount of glitches, check them out here.
Part Two: Oh No, Sam Lost his Miles!
Sam finally gets a phone call from someone other than his “mum”. This time it is from an Oceanic Air Executive, name, and he is going to take Sam’s miles away. The waveform on this message is interesting, it switches in between left and right, could this be Morse code?
Part Three: Emails
|Sam asks Tracey to let his “mum” know that he is fine, and says that he won’t be home beofre Christams. Could this mean that this is taking place before Christmas of 2004?|
|Ian and Pam, Sonya’s parents, have asked Sam to sta with them during his and Sonya’s Anniversary. He has declined seeing as he is out of the area.|
|Sam is asking Tracey what could have happened with the electronics to make them randomly malfunction.|
|The second cryptic email, this time with all letters. It may have the solution to the longitude of Flight 815, check out the theory section for more information.|
|Ian and Pam, Sonya’s Parents, are asking Sam to stay with them during his anniversary. They want to help him coup with the loss of Sonya.|
|Tracey has a few resons why the electronics behaved strangely, but the one that sticks out is that it may have been caused by electromagnetic energy. Is this energy coming from the island?
Tracey also tells Sam he needs a vacation, and should check out www.baliholidayfun.com.
Part Four: The Search for the Maxwell Group
|The website Sam pulled up is the result of him finding that Talbot is directly tied to the Maxwell Group.|
|Although Bali Holiday Fun was not featured on Sam’s Laptop, Tracey mentioned it in her last email message.
After emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, you will get a cryptic message.
Inside the message is a site, http://www.find815.com/steg/stegosaurus.png, which contains a picture of a Stegosaurus.
Part Five: Theory
|The cryptic message sent at the beginning of the week is theorized to have the longitude set of coordinates. Some letters in the email are smaller than others, “AABBCFC”. If A=1, B=2, etc. then the letters should represent the coordinate 112.2363.|
