I will post this banner every Wednesday, so that everyone involved with the Lost Experience can share what they have learned.

Keep up the good work!

Ok people, here it is as of Thursday May 18.

During the EST airing of LOST on the 17th, there was new website, letyourcompassguideyou.com.

When you get there, click to the right of the compass and just below the East directional arrow. You will bring up a brownish looking map thing. Click "108". It will bring you to an index of names.

Here's a step by step.

Go to the hmcintyr folder and find the INBOX folder within that. You'll find some fun stuff. Find the pthompso folder. In the INBOX folder within that, there is a messsage in binary along with a link to a binary decoder. The message will decode into "the mouthpiece". Go back to the main Index page. Click on the ahanso folder. It will take you to a brief splash page of The Hanso Foundation website, then take you directly to the Executive Bios page. THIS PART IS IMPORTANT. You have to follow the ahanso link, you CANNOT just go back to THF.org. (Note: I've heard of people needing to also log back into the newsletter with "breaking strain", but I didn't have to.) At Hugh McIntyre's page, there will be a dialouge box. Type in "the mouthpiece". Enjoy!

PS: Once in, the pink papers falling (you'll know what I mean when you see it), are clickable. Check them out.

New numbers posted at persephone.thehandofoundation.org.

They were decoded through base 64 and anagrammed to find the message:

A mouse does not rely on only one hole.

This message can also be found on the map seen in the episode "Lockdown", though the message on the map is in latin.

Thanks. This is a great feature.

I'm really into this and no one else around here seems to be, so I have to ask...

Should I leave more to the imagination? (I didn't give EVERYTHING away here, and if you went through the steps you'll see how much I left out)

I guess I'm asking, do you guys want to figure the steps out yourselves or would you like to know the steps to find out the juicy info?

I'm just gonna keep giving the steps if there's no real objection. I don't want to ruin for some. (You know how those die hard LOST fans can be! lol)

My ability to keep up with it is dependent on my regular life. I've been really busy at work, so I'm behind on the game.

At THF.org, go to Peter Thompson's bio page. You can see faint letters flashing over his picture. It's spells out "survivor guilt". There is an invisible text box underneath his photo. Type in "survivor guilt", press enter, and enjoy some juicy details of Peter Thompson's professional life.

Scott and Steve said...

How did anyone figure out that "survivor guilt" was the right password, becasuse the letters just flashed infront of Peter's pic, but they were not in order, and some of the letters were used more than once??

Katie, I really enjoy that you are posting the details. I don't have a whole lot of time to explore the websites, and it really helps that you break it down for me. So many thanks!

You can actually right click on the image, and save it onto your hard drive. Then break down the images that form the flash file. Simple really (my mate figured this out, not me - i really couldn't take any credit for that and not feel guilty.)

Extrapolating on the previous message from persephone and the numbers changed at persephone.thehansofoundation.org changed to merely "2", someone tried hole2.thehansofoundation.org.

Here's a project for all you photoshop geniuses! Everyone is still working on it, trying to decode it. No one has any idea at this point.

More when I find/hear it.
