Frame 12 Clue 2 - Escaregot, Ghostfighter, & Milton 272

While there is a lot of certainty that the new reveal will be at the Super 7 store in Florida, the new clue is Escaregot, Ghostfighter, & Milton, which are all characters sold by the Super 7 store.



Thanks to MiddayShadows for being the first to tell us about the new clue, and AndySchex for telling us about the figures.

I've just read back through the comments after the new clue was posted and spotted this -

booneboy said...
New to the lostargs, though I have been following for awhile. Just received my Transmission poster yesterday and I couldn't be happier.

I wanted to post that the number of letters in each of the words is 9, 11 and 6. Could mean a 9am reveal on 11/6....

Lottery Ticket has pointed out that Ghostfighter has 12 letters not 11, so the 11/6 idea is probably not correct

woah

Dragon Management said...

BAM! Super7, here we come!

I wonder if they haven't decided weather it'll be the Tampa or San Fran store yet to see how many a chattering about showing up?

BTW, if the reveal is in St. Pete, I'll be on Twitter @dragonmgmt

LotteryTicket said...

dang
that's what I get for being in the chat room

LotteryTicket said...

gotcha

@Lottery_Ticket/lostarg-frame-12

Hello, everyone.

@Zort - sounds like a worthwhile and fun trip you're having.

You guys were all over this one - now I need to know when. Was this the location where their schedule was rather ambivalent on a certain day? My eyes are crossing from reading through hundreds of comments today...

maven said...

Thanks for putting together the list, LT! This new feature sure makes it easy to follow everyone for each reveal!

ReverendMilo said...

Surprise surprise surprise (in gomer Pyle voice)
:)

Amy Lynn said...

Surprise where?

LotteryTicket said...

Worked pretty well . yes?
Par game? or no.

Kelly said...

Any holes in one Rev Milo?

The Kharma Initiative said...

Booneboy, nice catch on the # of letters vs reveal date/time (from comments in previous post)! Friday 11/6 at 9AM Pacific Time would fit the pattern of reveals so far.

lostsailors said...

Oh lord, if it's 9AM I will be running late for work! (Though with them selling out in .0001 seconds I guess not that late).

In some ways I can't wait for this ARG to be over, I get SO stressed out waiting for reveals. Haha.

Dan said...

@DM - just sent you a request to follow

Kelly said...

Just sent you one, too, DM.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Is the San Fran store open at 9am?
The one in St. Pete opens at 11am.

Zort70 said...

KharmaInitiative - thanks for the prompt, I missed that the first time I looked through the comments. I've added it to the main page now.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Found this for Super 7 San Fran

Sun-Thu 11am-7pm

Fri-Sat 12pm-8:30pm

lostsailors said...

Cries, if it's a midday opening I will never, ever be able to see it because I am at work! ; _ ;

HenryGaleWasHere said...

And this for Super 7 Florida

Tues-Thur 11-7

Fri-Sat 11-8; Sun 11-5

Closed Mon

comixguru said...

Dragon Management - i've also sent you a request to follow you. Thanks!

HenryGaleWasHere said...

And the # of letters in the 3 clue words are 9, 12, & 6 (not 11)

Zort70 said...

Dragon Management, you are going to have a lot of requests in the next few days !

roxanna said...

great job on the clue hunt, everyone!

This is so exciting!

Dragon Management, thanks for letting us follow you on Twitter. I have sent a request to follow :)

HenryGaleWasHere said...

@DM me too

Zort70 said...

roxanna, exciting, stressful, fun, panic, all because of a little TV show called Lost

Sam G said...

Ghostfighter reminds me of Donnie Darko

Capcom said...

LOL, I'm glad that I didn't have any liquids in my mouth when I read your Gomer Pyle impersonation, Rev! X-D

Hey all, I just want to say that the artwork posted on that last thread was really neat, and very inspiring! You all are so creative.

ObFuSc8 said...

V is on :)

Zort70 said...

Right, night all got to go to sleep as I'm driving back home tomorrow.

Jesse said...

I have also sent the request to you Dragonmgmt! Thanks in advance for doin' this!

Dan said...

Thanks Obfusc8 - had totally forgotten!

Jesse t said...

Dragon management I sent you a request too

ObFuSc8 said...

"Don't be frightened, we mean you no harm..."

ObFuSc8 said...

Sure, no prob Dan.

Nighty night Zort...wish this would mean yet another clue, but this is probably it for today,

DM, thanks for adding me to your twitter list.

Jo said...

Let me know if and when you hear or figure out the details...if this turns out to be the San Francisco store, I can be there for sure on Friday. :)

Fried_Chicken said...

Dragon... sent you a request as well =)

Maybe a hole in the head!,,Did I see $65 for one of these " Limited Edition" toys.??!!??!!?? I don't think the kiddies will be allowed to play with one of these " toys".

See..there is something waiting for each and every one of you,,us..hey you every body. Its coming whether you like it or not. How you deal with it is your own,,but if you are so fortunate to keep living, its one of those rewards.. What is it that sits in your path just waiting for you to get there? Its the moment of realizing that there are things in life,,you can no longer relate to. A molded form gob of plastic goo going for 65 bucks....OH! its a Limited Edition! Toys? Limited Edition.? I thought it was against the Law to take advantage of the under aged. PT Barnum was Right.. There IS someone born every other minute to take advantage of 'em!..

I mean what is this? The Beanie Babie phenom all over again?Its more about the parents than the kids? Yes Junior, that 2 headed plastic green monster is your college fund and thats why you can't play with it..??!!


Okay, whens the next print sale? I want to buy it!!..MEL

Jesse! Rikkitik said...

Am I crazy or do these toys look kinda like the tagging done for "The Hatch"?

Capcom said...

V has a nice look so far visually, but I had to laugh because it's yet another show with no theme song, like Lost and FF. Don't forget everyone that The Prisoner begins this month also. Maybe the 15th. It looks very surreal and fun.:-)

Anonymous said...

Cap..the original " Prisoner" on AMC?..Patrick McGoohan et al?

Trial Attorneys said...

I will head to the reveal in St Pete if it is Thurs or Fri. You can follow me on Twitter @james_frazier if I go I will need someone to purchase the poster for me. ;-) poster buddy anyone?

RobPerrin said...

I watched the first 5 eps of Season 4 earlier today. Then I watched the first 20 minutes of V tonight. Not even in the same league...

charter321 said...

Uhhh Ghostfighter has 12 letters...not 11.

So that is 9, 12, 6.

charter321 said...

My guess is that the reveal will be on the 6th at 9 am PST which is 12 pm EST

charter321 said...

Cap..OH I see.. a whole new edition of " The Prisoner" starting Nov 15 8/7c....Oh my..i remember the original with P McGoohan..First time I saw it..rite over my head..Never seen anything like that on TV before, except some Twilite Zone and the " Outer Limits"

But..Canadian Broadcast go hold of it,,and added a few minutes commentary at the end of each episode,,and THEN..american PBS got hold of it and rebroadcast the Canadian version. The years in betwen gave me the ability to comprehend what went over my head the first time.

For ALL LOST FANS..The Prisoner,, the original with or without the Canadian commentary.. is Required Viewing. The Prisoner is the Grand Daddy of LOST. Pay your respects to it.

The NEW Prisoner looks very interesting. With a ad banner of " You Only Think You Are Free"..sounds like they are at least trying to stay in line with the original.

The original aired 67/68..to this day there are websites dedicated to it. Thats how good it was. I suspect ..Lost will easily match that.

#6...MEL

andalone said...

@dragonmgmt - I sent request as well. Thanks!

Capcom said...

Just got back from watching V...right Mel, a totally new one with Jim Caviezal(sp?), and Gandalf (Ian McKellan is it?). And it looks as if they still have the giant security balloon on the previews! X-D Yes, the original is totally out there. I've been watching a bit of it this week, and I can't believe that I understood it way back when, before I had grown my "Lost Brain", to understand the un-understandable.

andalone said...

Trial Attorneys - In the hopes you have a poster buddy, I am following you too. Thanks.

RobPerrin said...

Agree on the original Prisoner. I watched the full series on DVD over a few weeks last year. At its best it is brilliant.

Anonymous said...

..Back in its day,, there was much stink raised about the quality of TV. Marshall Mcleuhan ( spelling)..made headlines with his testimony before Congress.." TV is a vast wasteland"..so,,CBS imported McGoohans solo project " The Prisoner" in what some say,,was an effort to show that " heavy" TV Shows probably wouldn't work in America. Not everyone said that,, just some. But the show ran for 15 episodes,,that is all folks,,and did gain a cult following...that is still alive today.
All in metaphor, analogy, the Individual,,the Individual vs Society,,freedoms, liberties, self awareness,,etc etc..at its roots, the Surreal question,, the question plaguing mankind since he came out of the trees,," Who Am I?"

Long Live Nadja...MEL

maven said...

Jo (of JoPinionated) will do SF if the reveal is there, too.

Ellen said...

I can't figure out why "escargot" is misspelled. At first I thought it was deliberate and that is was a clue! But come to find that Super 7 spells it that way and it's supposed to be scare-y. Long day, time for bed.

ObFuSc8 said...

I guess that's it then, waiting for time/place to drop.

JPL said...

V - Good!
The Numbers poster arriving today (#281) - Better!
A New Clue - Best!

Justin said...

I called the San Francisco Super 7 store and the guy says he doesn't know anything about it. He said someone else called today and asked the same thing.

For what it's worth, the guy sounded pretty genuine.

Walkindude125 said...

Hey guys,

I could be wrong, but we may still get one more clue before the reveal, either solidifying the place ( for people who haven't been as good at solving the puzzle as we are), or the location (either SF, Florida, or both), before the big final confirmation.

This could make it Thursday or Friday. I hope friday because I'll be in the air thursday morning and otherwise would need to strike a deal with someone to grab me a poster!

dusty said...

When I talked to the guys at the Florida store today, they were non-commital, said we were on the right track with Super7 (before today's clues were released), and said that I should call back in a day to confirm. They said they'd be having a reveal, but weren't told if it would be SF or FL. He then proceeded in giving me directions to their store. My bet is tomorrow we get date/time, and it's a Thursday release.

JT said...

DragonMangement- have also sent request to follow if you'll allow. I am Jst_Thinking on twitter. Thanks much.

ObFuSc8 said...

Justin -- unfortunately that doesn't mean a thing. I called the Glasgow FP before their event and even told them I had gone to all of the touble of calling from the US, and they said they "knew nothing". It could even be that just the owner/manager is in on the reveal. Either way, we should be prepared for a bicostal reveal, just in case.

Walkindude125 -- seems there's usually one more obvious last clue that actually states the time/place, so hope to get that tomorrow with the reveal Thurs/Fri as you said.

ReverendMilo said...

Highest golf score for me ever..odd that one tiny little broken toe can throw you're worse than a twelve pack.

Off to watch V before bed.

And the prisoner rules!

Mappy said...

Oh man, I hope it's not Thursday, I'm in the field for work and a long drive to and from. Here's hoping for Friday!!!

Ben Ritter said...

I saw the panel at Comic-Con and the new Prisoner looks awesome. They're definitely taking it in a different direction than the original, which I like. (I loved it, but better to leave well enough alone.) Too bad it's just a miniseries.

TabulaRasa said...

Does anyone else have a sudden urge to watch the original Prisoner? Is this some sort of AMC marketing ploy?

LotteryTicket said...

WalkinDude, I'll wave at you from my little round window at 30M if you wave back. I'm dead-poster-girl walking if reveal is Thursday.

final check before lights out.

remember to state your tweeter name if you are attending and I'll add to Tweeter list @Lottery_Ticket/lostarg-frame-12 east coast and west

Milton's kinda cute.

lulu said...

Hi All,
Long-time reader, first time poster.
Just wanted to say that I had my doubts about this arg at first, but then remembered that TPTB know what they're doing and the posters have proved to be gorgeous:-)
I was wondering how many of you folk are from Australia, and whether or not there's any chance one of the URL reveals will be held here. After all, 'Australia is the key'.

LotteryTicket said...

lulu, welcome to the lostARGs team. Yes, we do have some Aussie and a Kiwi amongst us. DCaaPB have gone to Buenos Aires and Scotland, so why not the land down under!

cakelover said...

I think asking Ken Taylor to do a print was our nod to Australia....
although I did see "Penny" actress was in Melbourne.
This ARG is US-centric. L O S T is an
American product. OZ has crap internet speed. Ergo: Better get buddy in the US.

MiddayShadows said...

Greetings all,

While we're all mulling over the clues , I thought you might appreciate a piece of legitimate concrete info regarding an upcoming L O S T poster...

From the newsletter of (renowned print artist) Todd Slater:
"...That's it for now but look for my Lost print to drop sometime soon on Damon Carlton and a Polar Bear ..."

Todd is a really amazing and respected poster artist. He works in a broad range of styles. His Flight of the Conchords poster cracks me up( I own that one), and his Dead Weather prints scare the bejeepers out of me:

Todd Slater

*note: he doesn't say when, only 'soon.'

Just thought a few of you might want to know :)

kiwilostie said...

Welcome lulu! Im in NZ, and have said previously I hoped for a down under reveal, esp as you say, its the 'key'! Keep your fingers crossed. I mean, if they can do a Buenos Aires (sp) reveal, Australia surely could get one...
Slow internet in OZ??...what, only 7Mbps??... I wouldnt think so. NZ yes, but not Oz.

kiwilostie said...

Cool Midday! Great style, wonder what topic he got...

jeremy said...

I could be able to do a SF reveal as well.
just depends on when it is.

But believe me...if it's anywhere in the Bay Area, I'm going to try my darndest to get there!

The Kharma Initiative said...

MEL, looking forward to the new Prisoner as well.

The original was a bit before my time but I caught some episodes on PBS many years ago. Clearly an influence on LOST.

Cosmically Yours

Ben Ritter said...

It was the case (not sure if it still is) that you could watch the entire original series of the Prisoner on the AMC website for free.

MiddayShadows said...

I also wanted to add that my gut tells me we are not off base in ascribing numeric values to the words in the clue.

After all, the first clue was a number.

Escaregot, Ghostfighter, & Milton :
9 , 12 , & 6

and before that :
7

hmm.processing...

MiddayShadows said...

there has to be a reason they chose these above all the other figures in their inventory...

thorsten said...

V Pilot, 36 seconds in.
Check out Juliets eye ;))

Kelly said...

Great find Middayshadows! I wish he gave some idea of the topic to expect.

justanothersky said...

@ DragonManagement: I also sent a request to follow you. Thanks.

JT said...

Thanks Dragon- will unbug you later if you wish on twitter.

JT said...

Midday- if you look on Todd Slater's list of posters in his 2009 subscription, the third tube contains "Official ABC Lost Print". Looks like a treat for those that subscribed!

Zort70 said...

Just got back home, and tidied up the main post so the figures are a bit more organised and have their names (in the correct font)

couch locke said...

@Dragonmanagement -

longtime lurker, now starting to worry if I'll ever get one..so I reluctantly signed up for twitter (infinitepest) in the hopes that you might let me follow.

/not a flipper

thorsten said...

That's nice, did you bring me a rotor, Zort?
;))

thorsten said...

I meant, did you bring me a Turing signed Bombe, haha

Zort70 said...

I mentioned the war once, but it's ok I don't think anyone noticed :-)

No rotors up for grabs, but I might get a signed ZX Spectrum in the raffle.

RobPerrin said...

Any thoughts on a good frame color for Rousseau's Transmission?

thorsten said...

I used to enter the Numbers with an ZX81, once ;))

Zort70 said...

Rob, I don't have it myself, but looking at the pictures I would say a light wood frame would be good.

Of course it has to fit in with all the other posters you might have :-)

Anonymous said...

I used a black frame and a (brownish) gray matte which matches one of the colors.

LotteryTicket said...

Zort70 mentioned before but clue as 12 letters.

Zort70 said...

Lottery Ticket, I'm being dim, but I'm not sure what you mean.

Dan said...

Morning, all!

Zort70 said...

Amy Lynn said...

Good morning!

Zort, any clue on when you'll have you back turned long enough for a clue :) ?

Zort70 said...

Hi Amy, I'll try and go out around 10pm (GMT) and see if we get a new clue.

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks, mate :-)

LT, I think I see what you mean Ghostfighter has 12 letters so the 11/6 thing doesn't make sense.

Capcom said...

G'day Argies!

LOL Thorsten @ 6:23. E.M. does look good in V, it's amazing how good everyone from Lost looks when they are not dirtied up for the island scenes. :-D

thorsten said...

And later they are at Oceanic Plaza, Capcom, but it really exists:

Capcom said...

Well that's interesting, and a very nice view as well!

LotteryTicket said...

googled and walked around 720 Super7 FL. Image taken with previous tenets. Grab a slice of pizza while you wait.

dusty said...

@Lottery - Did you happen to see a Starbucks or some place nearby that might have wifi? I'll be there tweeting the event, but would really like a shot at the poster as well. With lack of a poster buddy at this point, free public wifi might be the only option. Thoughts??

thorsten said...

working on it, dusty…

LotteryTicket said...

tks. thorsten. looks like starbucks 4 blocks and Kahwa Cafe 2 blocks. You'll have to call Kahwa to see if wifi

LotteryTicket said...

Kahwa Cafe 475 2nd St N, St Petersburg, FL‎ - (727) 823-4700‎

LotteryTicket said...

Starbucks, 900 4th St N
St Petersburg, FL 33701-1722
(727) 551-0339

dusty said...

Thanks Lottery - Kahwa DOES offer free wifi. GAME ON.

dusty said...

It seems to me that they should have ordering available on-site at these reveals, prior to the prints going on sale on the web, to allow those willing to travel and track this stuff down the guaranteed opportunity to purchase, no? For the time and effort that members of this board put in (and I know I've just recently started contributing - not necessarily talking about me), it seems to be a pretty big dis-service.

Trial Attorneys said...

There is a Starbucks 2 blocks over from Super7 - their wifi isn't free though is it?

Trial Attorneys said...

Kahwa it is!

thorsten said...

Complimentary Wi-Fi for Starbucks customers When you register your Starbucks Card and use it at least once a month, you'll receive two consecutive hours a day of complimentary Wi-Fi, courtesy of AT&T.

Complimentary Wi-Fi for AT&T DSL customers AT&Ts more than 12 million DSL customers already qualify for free Wi-Fi at their neighborhood Starbucks.

Competitive pricing for paid Wi-Fi All other customers can receive two consecutive hours of Wi-Fi access for $3.99.

If I ever want an international spy network I'll know where to go.

Just in from Scott Dias…

Hi Thorsten,

If we do the LOST reveal at our store, we will open up our WIFI for our guests.

However, If I had to venture a guess as to what the odds are that we will have the reveal in our store, I would say 50/50.

Cheers!

-Scott

Zort70 said...

50/50 ?

Amy Lynn said...

Scott > Chris

thorsten said...

The other 50 could be SF, Zort…

Zort70 said...

Sorry, yes I saw SF in the comments before but if they are trying to throw us off the scent then this seems a little odd ?

Trial Attorneys said...

I think that means that it may be a dual reveal - St. Pete and San Fran.

Zort70 said...

Will Scott tell us that the other store will have a reveal later just to get his own back ?

jeremy said...

hey friends, why exactly are we choosing FL over SF?
Based on what I've found, the SF store is the original and the FL store only opened in September.
In addition, as we've seen in previous reveals, Tyson has a tendency to prefer CA over other areas of the world.

Just my two cents.

I'm going to attempt to set up a twitter account for myself, just in case it is a dual or SF exclusive reveal.

wish me luck!

Also...@ReverendMilo - any progress on those rings. Haven't heard anything for a couple of days.

peace

Zort70 said...

Zort70 said...

Jeremy, I thnk there have been a couple of potential pointers on the FL Super 7 blog that make us think that.

Dan said...

Plus, I would guess the point of S7's participation is most likely to promote its new location.

Every time someone writes it as S7, I keep thinking you're talking about Season 7, aka the Zombie season.

Dr. Bradley said...

I wonder if the Escaregot, Ghostfighter, and Milton will somehow be linked to the URL. Maybe all three are an anagram of the URL to come? Perhaps I'm reading too much into this.

Ooh, Todd Slater! That's exciting to look forward to!

I remain, however, completely stressed out until the reveal.

Lunch time... also speculation time... has anyone brought up that the CA location has different store hours than Florida?

CA STORE HOURS
Tues - Thur 12 - 7 pm
Friday 12 - 8:30 pm
Saturday 11 - 8:30 pm
Sunday 11 - 7 pm

Amy Lynn said...

Just a further update regarding the "other" board... we moved AGAIN to a more user friendly board. It's like DarkUFO, but without the crazy moderation there.

Email me if you need the address. We plan on creating a chat room there that will hopefully keep the mib people out.

@amy lynn- does the "other" board mean that the url wont be posted here or is that just another place to chat

Amy Lynn said...

Jesse t, do you mean the DCAAPB URL's? I'm sure they'll be posted here.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Just use Mr. "PUI" as your key

Jesse t said...

@amy lynn- oo alright thanks

Amy Lynn said...

What the heck is PUI

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Amy Lynn- refers to the comments above dealing with the enigma website that thorsten et al were talking about

Amy Lynn said...

Ah, OK. I don't have time to translate it all, so I'm missing out on all the cryptic stuff.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

not missing out on too much, just fun to use

MiddayShadows said...

Hello all- since I posted it in the middle of the night, some might not have seen my earlier post (1:44am ) regarding Todd Slater.

It *might* be the first 'official' confirmation by an artist before his poster is revealed. And of interest in that, it is not simply a rumour, for once.

Out of consideration I did not want to re-post it - just thought I'd direct your attention to it, in case.

HenryGaleWasHere said...

Midday, methinks he's going to get in plenty of trouble for it.

thorsten said...

@comixguru…

It is a simulation of the german cyphermachine enigma…

@Amy
I facebooked you the cypher ;))

Amy Lynn said...

Thanks thorsten. I just don't have time to go back and forth with the translator, sadly.

thorsten said...

No problem, we will just use it if really neccessary ;))

sorry, it is just too much fun to mess around with, will stop now...

MiddayShadows said...

@AmyLynn...ooops, you might be right. Hopefully TPTB don't mind have *one* concrete fact doled out to us ;)

I think we deserve it...

Amy Lynn said...

Midday, I was more referring to the fact that his fans will now be more eager to get in on the Arg. But we've had this argument many, many times!

Zort70 said...

Midday, I think Tyson is quite concerned about any "leaks" of information.

I don't think knowing one of the artists in advance is harmful at all, but you never know what is planned.

Timothy said...

I just caught on to this ARG, but it seems like it's going to be nearly impossible to get a poster with the way the last ones sold out :( I want to commend all of you for your work on this site though.

I tried to do a little digging, but couldn't find anything too useful.

I found there are only 2 Ghostfighter, 18 Escaregot, and 8 Milton available on the website (when I checked), but I figure the site inventory couldn't acutally be linked. Also the image numbers are 13970, 12272, and 15763 but that also seems to lead nowhere. I'll keep posting if I find anything out

Zort70 said...

Hi Timothy, welcome along.

lostsailors said...

@Amy Lynn, may I know how to get to other board, even if I am a more quiet member? I am lostsailors at gmail dot com.

Looks like we have this one pretty figured out. I don't know what I'm going to once they have revealed all of the posters! I really enjoy this

@All - I think I missed a class or 2 in cryptography! :(

@Amy Lyn - can you share site as well? jlahair(at)yahoo

Thanks.

comixguru said...

@HenryGale - when i put "QNWUCAVBTLJSSVZIYIIGSGI" in the translator, at first i got more gobblety gook. and then it finally worked.

is there a system? do you have to retranslate it several times or do you have to set the 3 wheels to certain letters to have it work correctly?

thanks! :)

@TomRex - Did you ever post a copy of prize letter 5? I think that it was the only letter missing from the
'Dear Ronie Midfew' post a few posts back. I'd love to see it and maybe a photo of the book too? Thanks!

TomRex said...

And AL - I'd love some info on the site too please - treasor@gmail.com

I'm hoping for St. Pete tomorrow. My wife has a meeting their in the evening and we could make a day trip of it. Downside is that there is a Shepard Fairey random release tomorrow and buying by phone can be iffy.

Also, i wish DCAAPB would archive some previous posts to make the load times better.

@comixguru…
you have to set the 3 wheels to certain letters to have it work correctly…

Help

@AmyLynn

Glad that you found a new forum/chat room that suits your needs. However I don't think it's fair to the SpoilerTV folks to call them or their behavior "crazy."

I understand you're upset, but I'd suggest not painting the wrong picture about DarkUFO/SpoilerTV, as they are both good sites, and from my experiences over the past several years (not just since September) most of the mods, blog posters, irc people, members, etc. are all really cool ppl.

Amy Lynn said...

@Congested, fair enough. However, a bunch of us were treated very obnoxiously yesterday by Pete and DarkUFO, so we left. We now have our own private board and private chat room. So everything's cool.

Congested said...

I'm glad it all worked out for you.

andalone said...

@TomRex - Thanks! They are the only entries missing from the scrapbook I am keeping on this.

@comixguru, sorry for not getting back to you sooner, had to do work (imagine that!) but it looks like thorsten helped you out.

Amy Lynn said...

I think I'm all caught up on sending invites to the private board. If you still need one, let me know, as the chats will be there.

Can someone tweet me the cypher code @LOSTFanArt?

dusty said...

@Amy Lynn - ditto on the chat link? @LOSTFanArt?

Amy Lynn said...

Dusty, email me please. I don't want the link up on twitter.

comixguru said...

@Thorsten what letters should i set them to... I saw PUI, but then I also saw a LOST character's name... ? :)

@Amy Lynn Could you send me the chat link too? @jdcurtis
