Webmaster:Those walking directions at the bottom, they lead into the University of Arizona College of Law library, and they lead you walk in front of a painting of the Tucson City Courthouse. I know, it sounds weird, but you can check out photos of the painting for yourself.

This is what the Russian means..from the far left:

From Koen:

The drawing with the four horizontal lines P1 .. P4, are a sketch of a
"snapshot" of a distributed computation. We use a snapshot algorithm to
get a global state (that is, a value for each local state) that could have
happened in a distributed computation (network or something).
I think this page is closely related to the previous one, with the DES
encryption algorithm.
Look at the *,**,***,****. I think they stand for letters or something.
From the Webmaster: Yes, it looks like graph theory stuff - which ties into all this Eulerian circuit stuff that appears everywhere else...there is definately some sort of systematic, predetermined course of action we need to take, calculated out of all this sh*t somehow. As for the stars, they appear everywhere..just look at the most recent full page for example..they're in there..
More from Koen, whos digging up clues like mad:
The last thing says, after you have followed directions: "where all the
pigs in the world can look but never see". This seems to match perfectly with
that letter we got recently where they say "he might go into the great hall and
not see anybody", and the theory of that Pigs are non-members (trying to become
a member?) from the previous page.

It all starts to make sense...

The "great hall" might refer to the building on the picture...
Webmaster: I highly doubt that...that building is a very old, very historic part of Tucson, and I'm sure the chances of some weird ass cabal of folks holding secret meetings there is slim, slim, slim. I've been there, its like every city building in the way of security - alarms, guards, locks, etc. How the hell could you hold a secret meeting there?

Coimbra, city, west central Portugal, capital of Coimbra District, on the Mondego River. The city is on the site of the ancient Roman city of Aeminium, but its name is derived from the bishopric of Conimbriga, which was moved to the area in the 9th century AD. The Spanish soldier of fortune known as El Cid captured

carlos txlates the greek
- the greek in a box on the upper right is from Hebrews, chapter 3,
verse 12. and translates as:

"[...] evil heart of unbelief, [...]"

clue=The _key_ in the leitmotiv could possibly have something to do with the key of the music--C-major.

clue:  Can somebody identify the poem which is the source of this quote?  
It is strongly alliterative like Swinburne or somebody else that I can't 
call to mind.  Have you got any English majors or graduate students in 
English involved with this?  Somebody deeply into English lit could see 
things that we can't.

clue:  I could be totally wrong about this, but the drawing with the lines looks to me like some variation on a 
diagram, developed by the physicist Richard Feynman to visualize the interaction of elementary particles. I have to 
I've been unable to find one with the P1 ... P4 form, but the idea makes sense with the reference to the "4-vector 
above the diagram. 4-vector fields appear to me (and this math is way, way over my head) to be matrices of values 
among other things, are useful for keeping track of the properties of elementary particles, for example, spin.

Think of how many matrices there are on the various ads, for example, the matrix on the right under the word TARGET.

In looking through the physics and math in the ads (again, without the background to completely understand it), I keep
running into matrix math, field theory physics and tensor math. If somebody actually knows something about these 
areas, I
think they could make a significant contribution.

BTW, Bryan, I know you're on vacation as I write this, but, when you get time, could you enlarge the small diagram on 
lower left.

clue:  Just a thought but the webmaster did a lot of work finding the picture and it was of the old court house.  I wonder if 
aren't directions in here on what to do at the court house?  These people think in levels, so you do one level and then you do 
next one.  That would really **** up anybody trying to track them.  The webmaster worked hard just to find the picture and the
result is mystification, like no way to know.  My guess is that those who are working with them got to the picture and then 
immediately to the court house and did the next step.  Wish I knew what that step was but there is plenty unexplained even in 
ad.  It wouldn't that difficult if you knew ahead of time what you are looking for.
If we crack this one over 8 years later it wouldn't matter because they've got their part of it done long ago.

Bob: 10.15.01
clue:  After more research, the diagram at the center has nothing to do with Feynman. It appears, along with the
Poset diagram on the following page (May 1, 1993). Keon was right about distributed computation. The paper,
originally published in 1988, is by a computer science researcher and is entitled "Virtual Time and Global States 
of Distributed Systems."

near a terminal: 12.26.01
clue:  I'm out of time for today but here is another reference to Virginia and the Azores and so forth.  Shipping 
lanes are like railroads in the sense that they are narrowly defined.  I once took the Southern Crescent from 
Manhattan to Baltimore on Amtrak.  Last time I'll get on an American train but the point is that once you say a 
certain route or even a certain train, the path is completely clear to anyone who hears or reads it.  If a bunch of 
these people were geared to take a certain action when Lisbon or Hampton Roads or anywhere on the sealane were 
mentioned, then they'd know without anything else being said.  Like a secret handshake in a fraternity or wearing 
an old school tie or anything that produces a host of the same associations everytime it is seen or heard.

Leitmotiv - after some searching I haven't been able to locate this but I have come to suspect that it references a mention
of the key of David in Revelations, which I haven't yet found chapter and verse for.  What I did find however, was rather
interesting and I'm not sure yet what to make of it.  First I saw this:
then I saw this:
Kinda familiar, no?

Painting of courthouse - I think I managed to track down the artist -  Laurence Guetthoff, appears to be a minor
C20th American artist about whom I could find no additional info - this information is completely irrelevant and tells us
nothing as far as I can see but I note it anyway.

German text between the two rows of music notation reads "Here also the moon may find its place".  It *sounds like* it
may have been Copernicus that said it but I haven't pinned it down yet.

I wanted to add a couple things to a comment by Haskeller on the 5/1/99 ad about the City of Richmond.
He, and one or two others, have indicated that this may refer to the ship.  That was also my first thought
as well.  I also did a quick search to see if there was perhaps a train by that name also and found none.

A quick couple of additional items of basic information on the City of Richmond.  
The CoR was built in 1873 and launched Saturday, February 15, 1873.
It was a steam powered, Transatlantic, paassenger ship.
It was one of a pair, the other being The City of Chester.
Owned by Inman Line, Liverpool whose rival was White Star lines (of Titanic fame).
Ship was sold in 1891, again in 1892, and scrapped in 1896.
It made 97 trips from Liverpool to New York and 2 from Liverpool to Philadelphia.

Ship info here:

Trip log here:

There are at least some passenger lists available for the ship but I tend to doubt much, if any, of
the real info on this ship is important.

The small diagram at the bottom left is a representation of the relationship between True North (the line with a star), Grid
North (the line labelled GN), and Magnetic North (the line labelled MN). See for an example.
The labels half way down our Mayday diagram should give the angles between these lines. They are difficult to read in this scan,
but the one on the left appears to say "0.05 degrees/1 mil", and the one on the right "12.4 degrees/222 mils". (Mils are a way of
measuring angles, sometimes used by the military.)
By referring to the maps of magnetic declination at we can see that 12.4 degrees
west declination occurs in a number of areas of the world, including the western US. This doesn't identify any particular location,
but it could rule out some possibilities.

Coimbra, Portugal was the location of the first Jesuit college.

	the old German between the music translates roughly: "Here the moon should also find its place"

...the russian for 'date' can also mean just 'number.'

You had a hard time taking the pictures of the Pima County Courthouse because of the reflections in the glass. 
Perhaps that is the entire point, as you can see a reflection of yourself in it.

Brasher Doubloon is the name of a rare coin in a novel by Raymond Chandler. It belongs to a rich crazy old lady 
and gets stolen, and she hires the protagonist, private investigator Philip Marlowe to find it. The book is 
called "The High Window".
