This is going to be really dumb and I'm dumb but it bothers the poo poo outta me that PAYLD1 is numbered yet the escort isn't so surely that suggests there is more than one PAYLD? I doubt it even matters but it's just bugging me. Spent the last couple of hours looking at the 3233 stuff and I'm more clueless than when I started.

well, for what it's worth, put 3233 in morse code and you get SISS.

wikipedia posted:

The Special Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws, 195177, more commonly known as the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (SISS) and sometimes the McCarran Committee, was authorized under S. 366, approved December 21, 1950, to study and investigate (1) the administration, operation, and enforcement of the Internal Security Act of 1950 (Pub.L. 81-831, also known as the McCarran Act) and other laws relating to espionage, sabotage, and the protection of the internal security of the United States and (2) the extent, nature, and effects of subversive activities in the United States "including, but not limited to, espionage, sabotage, and infiltration of persons who are or may be under the domination of the foreign government or organization controlling the world Communist movement or any movement seeking to overthrow the Government of the United States by force and violence." The resolution also authorized the subcommittee to subpoena witnesses and require the production of documents. Because of the nature of its investigations, the subcommittee is considered by some to be the Senate equivalent to the older House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC).

Officially abolished in the 70s? I don' think so!

Most likely unintended coincidence.

If they're smart, they'll have it setup so that you find a PAYLD3 and then you spend the rest of your days looking for the nonexistent PAYLD2.

We have had terrible luck finding anyone close. If you are willing to go out there, please join IRC. You don't even have to leave your browser. Just go to http://webchat.freenode.net and join the channel #arg and let us know where you are. We will give you the GPS coords and instructions for where to send the CD if you are so willing.

edit: so we know who you are, set your nick in IRC to zinc68

Make sure if you go, you give the date and time you'll be there. Don't forget to describe what you're wearing and driving. Then we can all see if you coincidentally die in an accident.

I am very curious to see if there is actually something there. Looking at the coords on a map, they are in the middle of what appears to be an empty field... The first two drops were a lot more defined than that, weren't they?

Well, if Kota is actually going to go, I guess we will know in ~2 hours 10 hours (he just said he isn't going until dawn and expects to get there around 10AM, which makes a lot more sense).

One thing to consider as well is that Twilio might just be a re-seller of VOIP services, and bought a shitload of poo poo from us. I am simply providing a lead and any new information about the source. Twilio might have resold it to a "whatever crazy ideas and theories are out there about this" (I still need to play catchup on this matter)

Twilio is a "reseller" of sorts. They basically let you TTS and other stuff, and provide APIs for voice services.

Phone numbers are internal to their system, so the number could have been picked up a day ago and you won't get anything, because they are just registered to twilio and targets/endpoints are "proxied" by them anyways

The reason for this is that it is exactly in the middle distance between the Lake Oswego and Blue Hill drops.
