DuaneIsInsane Predicts Dan Bronson at Comic-Con 55

A SpoilerTV forum member named DuaneIsInsane posted an urgent message about Comic-con, three days before the Lost panel. He correctly predicted that Dan Bronson would be at Comic-con, and that Dan Bronson is RuckusGuy:
In regards to Global Octagon Recruiting [sic], does the name Dan Bronson mean anything to anyone?
...
It may be closely related to the person who's going by the name RuckusGuy.
Dan Bronson will be at Comic Con
....
I had to wait until 12:18 to post.
I can't say why, but RuckusGuy has been hacking into Global Octagon Recruiting and I have reason to believe his real name is Dan Bronson.
After Dan's live (on tape) appearance at the Lost panel, Duane posted again:
He's done it.
Dan Bronson has done what he said he would do in his email.
I hope some of you are there to witness his accomplishment.
...
I can also tell you that Dan Bronson does background work.
...
I've worked alongside Dan Bronson for 2 years.
...
Dan Bronson does indeed go by the alias RuckusGuy.
What's also of great importance is that "Dan Bronson" is his 2nd alias.
Since Duane is claiming to have worked with Dan, he must also be "in-game". Or is Duane just insane?

FWIW, Tresbien over at InsideTheExperience found the actor who plays Dan Bronson - Jesse Heiman

* Thanks to Capcom for emailing me about this!

First!!!!!

Codysmom said...

still waiting, getting tired...

maven said...

Is anything happening at OGR? Duane mentions that Dan is going to hack that.

Ange said...

Comment for e-mail. *Twiddles thumbs*.

maven said...

I don't see anything different at OGR. YAWN!

Lost 2010 said...

I have a window pulled up for darkufo's chat but it's mostly just people popping in to say "Anything happened yet?" :)

Dennis said...

I'm listening to the podcast right now:

"By the time this podcast is up DharmaWantsYou will be open"

Well, Dave... where is it!?!?!

:)

maven said...

Someone on ITE said there's a password window up! Anybody see that?

Capcom said...

Nope. Except this time the page went all white instead of dark blue before returning to it's un-reconstituted state.

Ange said...

Re-comment for e-mail, forgot to tick the box. And I see no password window Maven.

Codysmom said...

no

Thrasher76 said...

Could Dan be DJ Dan? Has anyone seen what Dan looks like? Or am I way off base?

Ellen said...

*waving* still here...:(
(I mean the waiting is killing me...)
xxoo

maven said...

I never know what to believe on ITE.

This is not a very good start to this game. Come on Hoodlum...We've got a group of Dharma scientists to save from a violent purge!

Waves to Ellen!

Lost 2010 said...

Which site is the password window supposed to be on - OGR or DWY? Not that I see anything on either.

Capcom said...

That would be funny if it was Thrasher.

Matt said...

I am going to give it another hour and I am out. I think we may have to start accepting that it isn't going to happen tonight. Another few hours and it is only the 28th for a few of us.

Codysmom said...

Someone over at 4814152342.com called hoodlum"

OK. I was on the phone with Hoodlum's people. Seriously.

After I explained a bit about the nature of my call, asked the question "is it possible to know when the website would be up?", given my name and the city, I was asked to wait for a short while.
And then they told me that I have to check with ABC about the time when the content would be released.....

"It should be soon", they said, or rather she said.

I think they are a bit surprised that someone would actually call and complain about that people have been waiting anxiously in the past 24 hours for the website to go live...

Thrasher76 said...

Okay, I am just going to say it so I can move on here. This Duane guy looks, umm, how do I say this, umm, special?!?!?!?

Was he the guy who sang "Ding, Fries are done"

and on that note, good night all!

Peace & Namaste!

Ellen said...

well, gotta go to sleep. drat!!!!!
guess I'll BBL...
*waving back to Maven!*
See ya'll tomorrow I guess.
xxoo

Thrasher76 said...

I am just thinking that TPTB know most of us played before, so why would they not re-visit past ARG sites?? It is possible...

Ok, now I am done, goodnight!

Something's different. You can resize the image now, and I can't get to view the source at the moment.

Capcom said...

OK, that's freaky, now it's just dead again.

Lost 2010 said...

I don't know what to do with it, but there are now certain spots that I can roll over and a little box pops up that says "Dharma Wants You".

Capcom said...

Me too. It started doing that, and then it stopped doing it, for me. The site seems to be going thru puberty before we get to use it. :-p

Lost 2010 said...

Did you get the wierd pink and yellow wavy lines too? Or was that just my screen?

Eugene said...

No wavy lines. It all looks just like it did 15 hours ago when I first started hitting F5.

Lost 2010 said...

So that was just my monitor acting up I guess.

scoutpost said...

Still waiting eh?
Interesting info on Dan Bronson- wonder if comment about "background work" and "2nd alias" is supposed to be a clue to something. Like maybe we're supposed to be doing something or looking somewhere else. Of course there are way smarter people playing this than me and I would think if that was the case somebody would've figured it out by now. Wonder what's the deal?

Lost 2010 said...

I finally found the dots!! I'm so excited - I've just been taking it on faith that they were there and going off the line drawings you guys posted.

(This is why I should just lurk)

Capcom said...

Congrats Lost2010! :-D

Miriam said...

When you go to http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/index.php it takes you to a "Not Yet Available" page. Sighhhhhh...

maven said...

I finally see the dots now, too! I cleared my cache. I think that helped. But I don't see anything else like wavy lines or what Lost2010 is seeing.

Capcom said...

This is redunkulous.

memphish said...

So if I click on the DWY site it gives me the jpg file that I can move around. I can also view the source code. I also tried http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site and it gave me the not yet page that Dark's OGR people reported in the last day or so.

Lost 2010 said...

The wavy lines went away. But the little text box is still popping up.

memphish said...

Sorry for the dupe Miriam. We were typing at the same time I guess.

maven said...

Where is the text box popping up? Maybe that's a password box that someone on ITE mentioned earlier.

Matt said...

I have seen the text box popping up since about noon today. It goes away when you roll over it with the mouse and it happens at any point on the site. I am not following what everyone means about being able to move the jpg file.

Codysmom said...

Nothing different for me

maven, the text box is just a white box that says "Dharma wants you" when you put the cursor on the page

memphish said...

Hmm, I'm not getting anything by just holding my cursor on the page. Clicking on the image is giving me a jpg screencap essentially. But that may just be my browser.

Lost 2010 said...

Try the bottom half of the page. I don't get it except when I pass over the dots on the bottom half of the page (may just be my browser though - I got the wierd pink lines again just now)

Ange said...

The text box is just the title of the jpeg that is appearing on the Dharma page. For example if you mouse over the transcript image here on this blog's last post, it'll pop up a little "text box" with the title of the image (Comic Con Video Transcript). The Dharma site has been doing that but it only sporadically pops up for me.

Codysmom said...

I just got an apache 2 test page!

Eugene said...

IT"S WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

memphish said...

Yes!

Lost 2010 said...

It's loading, I think!

Codysmom said...

now i'm getting a blank blue page

Capcom said...

Awesome.

Lost 2010 said...

Yay! I passed. I'm assuming they must need more janitors.

Dennis said...


NEW POST!!!!

Codysmom said...

congrats!

I'm reloading since I heard the voice, but didn't have visuals the first time and now it's taking forever to load!

Eugene said...

Workman, my life's ambition is within my grasp. Poking around the site it notes that there will be a new test each week. I kind of hope that there is more to it than there was with the find815 game. I enjoyed TLE1 more. Zipping around the internet was fun. The whole Maxwell Group site never going live thing...was not.

the password page they are talking about is when you click on the link in the recent email that you cannot view the page. the page it brings up asks for id and password but no one that i have heard of has gotten thru it yet.
