she said some weird geeky stuff about static vs non static stuff...
to be honest I kinda tuned it out a bit... 
So the names in the last message seem to be completely irrelevant, the sole purpose was to spell out "The whispers" as in, the whispers we already have. Atleast that's my guess. Somehow they can be connected to the blog as you mentioned, perhaps searching the blog is what we should be doing? I've skimmed through it.

And now that I think about it some more I remember seeing "Trent Lea where are you?" in the blog somewhere. So maybe the whispers we have give keywords that we need to search for in the blog? And "The whispers" might just be another keyword like the other ones?

If that is right then the only entry where search picked up anything about "The whispers" is A Nightmare: http://nubuds.org/blog/2008/08/10/a-nightmare/

No luck with "Trent lea where are you" even though I'm pretty sure I saw it before in the blog, "It is real" picks up plenty of entries, haven't gone through them yet since I might be way off. On the other hand, "It is real" might just refer to the singularity again, and maybe the whispers aren't keywords at all.

Another thought which sort of ruins the keyword theory is that the blog is actually a blog in the traditional sense, it follows Brian's life day by day. So perhaps searching randomly for keywords will only lead to posts which do not matter untill we know more?

As for the static/non-static stuff, this is what I could find in the actual blog itself regarding static:
http://nubuds.org/blog/2008/07/26/im-going-crazy/
http://nubuds.org/blog/2008/07/14/weird/

And regarding the WoW names, http://nubuds.org/blog/2008/10/06/closer-still/ suggests that WoW is indeed important. So maybe the names do or will mean something at some point. Bah.

I agree, there is more to the blog than we have figured out.  I'm no code monkey, but when I looked at the source code nothing appeared to be hidden there.  There has to be something in the blog itself.



I'm waiting for the day when, if you tell someone 'I'm from the internet', instead of laughing they just ask 'Oh, what part?'

Woh, Sensational...
I have been so caught up in all of this that I didn't see your post from Tues...

Yeah it really worries me that Brian hasn't said anything in so long...

Here is hoping we hear something from him to know that he is ok!

RE: What's going on?

Here is the thing with the blog. It's just stuff Brian wrote. I had been setting up a Website for the three of us as friends, to keep in touch over the summer because I had to go back to CA. I set up nubuds.org on Yahoo. We also planned on playing WoW together. Later I found gamerDNA and it was easier to make a Web site here so... Anyway then Brian asked me if he could install Word Press there and make a blog, because, and I quote, "I am going through a lot and I just want to write." I already had been blogging a bit on MySpace and Twitter and didn't really like it so it seemed like a good thing to do for Brian. So no big we set it and Brians started writing and using the Web server there. I also made us emails.

RE: What's going on?

A couple things I have been thinking about.

I also looked at the source code for the blog and I don't see anything out of the ordinary

Someone asked earlier about "the singularity." As I mentioned in another thread, I believe the singularity refers to the theory that a black hold collided with the earth, causing th Tunguska event. If we could get our hands on some of Teng's writings we may be able to confirm this, but it sounds like most of it was pretty abstract.

I thought I saw a common thread in the NPC names used to spell out "the whispers," so I did some research. All of them are from instance dungeons.

The first 3 are from Ahn'kahet
The next 2 are from Azjol-Nerub
The next 2 are from Halls of Lightning
The last 4 are from Mauradon

Other than the numbers and the fact that they are in order, I am at a loss for how they may be related. Maybe we can group these with another clue and start looking for more info in game.

Obfuscatus, 
I think you are right there has to be a bigger picture going on here...

This all must be connected in some way...

What do you think the image that EAC recieved meant?
