I'm just running in circles. I'll figure it out by the end of the year I am sure.

All 5 blog posts were made at the same time. "Time" was just a hint that something was going on.

Maybe it's because I come from a lazy generation but I feel like you need to be a little more structured and forth giving in your clues...

Meh. A clue was kinda given today when Steve said time was not really a keyword. Gives me a whole new angle to try out tomorrow unless someone figures it out.

About 50 times. :) Was looking for time references though.

What I've got so far in the 30 minutes I've been sucked into this...

All the posts seem to reference numbers (sort of), Infinite's most obviously (and subliminally, lol)

0 - IP Subnet-Zero
1 - 1st Nexus 7K Deployment
2 - Some Interesting Things, Too
3? - Strange Sounds Coming From My TV
4? - Kids shows today…

There's def. something encoded in the file Steve posted, but I haven't looked into trying to decode it at all yet. It really reminds me of the SonicLink feature on my Polar HR monitor.

Yeah, same conclusions here. I have been spending most of my time reading up on audio decoding. Coming up with nothing. Today's a new day and it should be pretty quite at work so "we'll git 'er dun!"

I think we need to flip 3 and 4 on the list. Investigating the whole school house rock thing and it references the number 3 quite often with the song name and the whole TV station thing. I find nothing in Steve's blog to reference number 4 but it is the only one left so I guess it fits or maybe it is not part of the numbering scheme and it just has come clues and the file.

Now the big question, if the numbering is correct what does the order of the blogs mean? Something in the text of the blog? Something hidden in the hundreds of line of html making up the pages? I figure the blog posts clue in on how to decode the audio file.

True when counting the number 0 and not the word. I am just collecting info at this point. I have no clue how it all fits together and if it even does. I should know better than to get started on these things. It's like an addiction.

Pass me the glass dick.
