    LOL, Valve.

    It's like Gabe asks "community sitrep?" - "the people are restless, sir" - "...throw them a bone".

    Okay, somewhere on the web, there has to be a program that converts morse code in a sound file to text ...

    Wait...

    Oh how the hell did I miss seeing it.

    I knew it was strange when the message was sent from Judith. She was running away from the camera with the combine standing right there, and I thought to myself: "How did she send that transmission if the combine had the recording?" So I chalked it up to the combine, thinking they were obviously were the ones sending it back to the Citadel. That may still be the case.

    But then there was that Borealis footage. So that obviously meant that the borealis was the project, Judith had found it and returned to her base to send the footage in the message. But that didn't make sense, she had to be the one making the transmission if she was hiding the data in the carrier wave.

    Perhaps it wasn't. Perhaps Judith never found the Borealis. Perhaps someone else hid the data in the carrier wave. Well, not someone, something...

    I suppose the only thing left now is for someone to get the achievement. Everyone is stuck on 22 or 23.

    Once every single person who purchased Portal unlocks the achievement, Episode 3 will hit the shelves.

    Actually, I kinda agree with a Youtube comment on this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2f7Iw3YMslc

    Where he says if you listen hard, you can hear "Gordon is alive, alyx." Which doesn't make much sense but it is all I hear now.

    The phone number and zipcode takes you to an H&R Block building in Kirkland, WA on Google Earth/Maps/whatever.

    Some dude named CatZilla got the right login/pass.

    [​IMG]

    Username: backup
    password: backup

    [​IMG]

    Looks like ASCII GlaDOS.

    Edit: Some more stuff. Looks like people are getting different images and responses when using different login/pass. I think this one used cjohnson and the md5 hash number that had been deciphered.. or something like that.
