Voices in the Drone 114

This morning when logging on there appears to be extra sounds in the "drone" noise that plays in the background of the DWY site

InEnglandAndLost
has provided a sample of the voice. This voice when played backwards appears to be saying: she/cheat, resembles, more, a, right, man, nothing, click, ?? (Inaudable), and, honest, see (C)

Lisa
has told us that this is a french proverb: "Nothing resembles an honest man more than a cheat"

Listen to the voices:
Listen now:






*UPDATE:
Olsivia
posted in the comments with a cleaned up and rearranged audio. You can read Olsivia's Russian blog here
Listen to the voices redux:






*UPDATE: At Dark UFO poster Sohini reports getting an e-mail from Hans Van Eegen announcing Promotion to Instructor Status (with an attached ABC release form) . You can view the e-mail HERE .

Been gone for ages... and then I get this!!!

First!!!

Woo hoo

Lisa said...

someone said on dark that it says ... "nothing resembles an honest man more than a cheat" (sorry I posted that on the test 5)

Zort70 said...

I haven't had a chance to listen to it properly as I am at work and I have no headphones.

Lisa said...

I just looked it up, it's a French proverb

Ange said...

Great find IEAL and Lisa. So the incentive of a reward, even though we don't really know what it is, is causing the human nature in many of us to cheat.

Is this a BS hack or is this subliminal and put there by Dharma?

EmeraldIsLost said...

did you see aswell on DarkUFO that emails have been sent out to select people giving them Instructor status? anyone here got one?

EmeraldIsLost said...

interesting find on the proverb by the way; what is the significance of this, i wonder?

Zort70 said...

No instructor email here

Anonymous said...

All y'all are missing the obvious.

We get more words in the sound file than there are in the proverb. I hear: cheat, resembles, more, a, right, man, nothing, click, than, an, honest, see/C.

If you take out the words in the proverb, you're still left with:

Right-click see/C.

I haven't figured out where to use it yet, though- I assume it will probably be on the next test.

ANM said...

No instructor email here eithre...really pissed about M.Emerson being cheated out of his more than deserved emmy yet again...ugh I hate whomever votes in the EMMYs

ANM said...

right click c....right click to copy?

ANM said...

right click c....right click to copy?

Codysmom said...

Good morning! Interesting about the words/voice at DDWY... I also heard more words than are in the proverb, anon, the right-click thing which I am also wondering could be a clue to the cheat in the next test. With the two sets of words it kind of goes along with the white swan/black swan thing..... the two opposing forces

I'll be interested to know if there was anything in the source code of the "instructor" e-mails

VERY disappointing last night (Emmy's).... still trying to get over it!

And finally, HAPPY LOST ANNIVERSARY..... Sept. 22nd!! (and happy first day of fall)

ANM said...

Almost forgot!(still sleepy) HAppy Lost Anniversary!They might steal our awards but we know who really deserves them!

Codysmom said...

I'm still sleepy, too, anm.... lol Go without my tech for a little while and stayed up too late catching up on everything:) (I sent you a picture) Hope you had fun in the mountains!

Codysmom said...

Hey, CEO! I hate to tell you this, but you're down to #3 on the leader board... get crackin'.. lol

Lisa said...

yeah yeah I know lol I'm a working on it. It seems that Lostph has finally figured out the cheat and is working me out of 2nd place. :-P

ANM said...

Lisa...just out of sheer boredom induced curiosity...what cheat?

Codysmom said...

lisa, lol..... don't knock yourself out! You will forever remain our CEO regardless of leader board status:)

Capcom said...

Good owrk Anonymous, IEAL, and Lisa!

Again, it remeinds me of the Mittlewerk message inserted into the final Hanso Org site.

Codysmom said...

Hey, capcom... how's it going?

Yeah, that Mittlewerk thing, I'm still thinking about that. Our groupings to find the one closest to 30% for Mittelwerk's experiments still keeps popping up in my mind. Wasn't he looking for certain genetic markers?

Capcom said...

FYI, I wrote I a little tribute to Yankee Stadium on one of my blogs. :-)

FYI-2, I also started a Fringe blog in case anyone is watching it and wants to chat after an episode, or help me figure out what's going on.

link

:-x

Lisa said...

If I hadn't promised someone maybe I would tell but then again, everyone would know it if I posted it on a blog. Maybe I will fess up when the ARG is over. Let me just say that my computer is busy all day getting points so it's no easy thing ! :-)

Lisa said...

Let me just say that my computer is busy all day getting points so it's no easy thing ! :-) Oh and have I said that I will be glad when Oct. 7th comes so I can stop with the Dharma points !!

Capcom said...

Hi Codysmom, et.al.! I'm having fun watching all you guys working so hard, heheh. But I'll make up for it if we have to go driving around looking for billboards in Knoxville again, I'll be there for y'all! :-D

maven said...

Happy Anniversary to our wonderful show! And boo to the Emmy voters for passing us by (although I do love Mad Men...but not in the same way as Lost!).

It does seem like Dharma could be setting us recruits up to be cheaters. If BS is behind the cheats, it could be a bigger plan involving the new DI. It's almost like "Mom" is telling us not to cheat, but also pointing out the fact that you can.

ANM said...

ok

Nickb123 said...

Hey guys, thanks for the audio translation guide - I couldn't hear a word that was being said!!!

I have a new competition to mark September 22nd - its similar to the Slovaltine scheme we ran, and I'd love to see if you hardcore code-breakers can crack it. I won't link here as an advert, but its on the Lostpedia Blog - you can also win a copy of Bad Twin (shame on you if you haven't already read it!).

Much love!

Codysmom said...

capcom, good to know we'll have you as our Knoxville "man on the scene":)

maven, I like your analogy!

ib4uc said...

Hey Locos. FYI... SciFi Channel is airing some Lost episodes tonight. Starts at 7:00 here in Ohio -- White Rabbit, House of the Rising Sun, The Moth & Confidence Man.

Maybe a stupid question but was there an episode called The Moth?

Codysmom said...

Here's an article about Lost on SciFi:

'LOST' HITS BIG ON THE SCI FI CHANNEL:

ANM said...

lol....I just got married...hehehe...if you wanna meet the groom check out my myspace page ;P

MadAriad said...

Hey all. Interesting about the voices...... hmmm.
Well Happy LOST day!

EmeraldIsLost said...

I might give that code-cracking a try, nick :)

i couldn't hear anything on that audio clip either except one word, which i think was cheat. Ah well.

If that right click is anything, guys, i'm inclined to think its for the next test and they just released it early due to it being the 22nd.

Lisa said...

they have done that before with giving out the cheat a day before the test hits (which is usually Tuesday) so maybe there is another test coming out tomorrow and that's the cheat for it.

ANM said...

I hope we get an update tomorrow...after the EMMYs I really need something to lift my Lost related spirits

Aaron Wood said...

Well, I can only assume that we need to right click on answer "C" in one, or all, of the questions in the next test, rather than "Copy" anything...

Lisa said...

that sure sounds about right Aaron. when ever there was a cheat, the answer was always C anyway so I'm sure your right.

Capcom said...

That French proverb sounds like something Jack Sparrow would say, "...a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest."

:o)

maven said...

I don't know what I'd do without you guys to post what we're supposed to be hearing! These old ears need all the help they can get! LOL

maven said...

Elizabeth Mitchell got dissed for her dress at the Emmys. I definitely think that's not a very flattering picture of her.

Evi seemed to impress everyone!

Olsiva said...

I dont't think this is a french proverb. I reverb the sound and clearly heard CLICK, RIGHT, SEE, HEY

http://olsiva.lost-abc.ru/music/bs.mp3

It's my sound.

Lost 2010 said...

I don't care for either of those dresses actually.

Melissa_Lossa said...

That's it - I'm going to write an existential play and call it "Voices in the Drone." :)


I'm just realizing how long I've been away - other duties have called!

takes a village said...

Ib4uc;
Cave-in at the caves.Charlie follows moth to the rescue.

Happy Lost Anniversary,everyone.

ANM said...

Has any one seen pics of the other Losties on the Emmy redcarpet?? Have been looking for Mr.Emerson but can't seem to find him...was he on TV at least??(I TiVo'd the show so if he's not on at all I wont watch it!)
Also, how do we get to play the DDWY drone voice thing backwards?

Capcom said...

Yes, the dress that Mitchell chose is not very flattering, it's frumps badly at the midsection and is too glitzy and heavy. Evi's is almost overrun with ornamentation, but it's very feminine and pretty and light. I really like the Roman/Greek look of De Raven's dress, but the top looks a bit matronly with the high neckline. I like critiquing fashion, can ya tell? :o) Otherwise, they all look beautiful and a lot better than I would look, that's for sure!

Capcom said...

ANM, there's a pic of ME on the ODI. His wife has one of those pretty ribbon dresses on.

link</a

Nickb123 said...

EmeraldisLost - yay definitely have a go.

ANM said...

To be honest even with the not so great dresses it must be sid, TV people look better than the average Joe lol!
Let's not forget though that it takes hours and an army of pro's to get them there! I want my ME!!!!!!And my HL too!!!

ANM said...

I wish I was her....boohooo...*runs off crying bitterly*

PS:Thanks for the link codysmom snif snif

Capcom said...

I know, I was worried about sending you to a pic of ME with his wife. :-( That's the only one I've seen of him so far.

ANM said...

Well I return to civilisation (more or less) tomorrow mornin' so it's time to say:
Off to ZzZ land where ME is my husband and a deserving Emmy award /Golden Globe winner...YAY!I love dreams!

maven said...

Thanks for the link to ODI for all the fashion! It probably was the best thing about the Emmys!

I was also reading the Instructor email. Those who receive the email to be instructor have to fax a release today. That fax # is my area code! If I can only track down the location, I can do a BS and sabotage or infiltrate the DI! LOL

Capcom said...

Go for it Agent Maven!

Ange said...

Hey Gang,
Are there any ARGers that got that spiffy instructor mail from Hans? I'd love to do a post on it...e-mail us pretty please!

Capcom said...

Not me yet, sorry.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy Lost Anniversary!

maven said...

Not me either. I think I'm destined to sweep the floors in the hatches.

MadAriad said...

Me too - no instructor email. But then, I totally slacked last week and never even finished making a test, and I have no Dharma points. So I'm not sure the DI is going to want me......

MadAriad said...

..... unless they need slackers! lol

Zort70 said...

I've updated the main post with Olsiva's MP3 of the cleaned up audio. I'm fairly sure there are two things in the audio, one for the proberb and one for the right click instruction.

Zort70 said...

The DWY site has been updated again today with a message in the bagua to say that the recruitment assessment closes on the 7th of October.

No new post for this yet as we already knew the date.

Zort70 said...

For some reason this morning (presumably because of the update) I cannot click on any of the tests to take them.

Zort70 said...

The site is working again for me now.

By the way there is a great interview with JJ Abrams on the BBC Radio 1 website (may be UK only I'm not sure)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles/la/2008/

He discusses, Lost, Fringe, Star Trek, Cloverfield and Ham Sandwiches.

No spoilers that I am aware of.

Ellen said...

Good morning!
I see you guys have been really busy! I'm checking in for email...
Maven-happy birthday kisses for Elizabeth!! she's such a cutie!
xxoo

Ellen said...

Almost forgot to add, thank you guys for giving me your opinions about my new granddaughter's name!!! Very helpful, cause I just could not make up my mind!
...xxoo

Zort70 said...

Hi Ellen.

I think the one one thing Lost Community/ARG ers are not short of is opinions ;-)

Lost 2010 said...

Over at the stv forums I was reading the post where people who have been given instructor status posted their tests. It almost looks like there was one test selected from each category if you go by that. But that's really wild extrapolation.

Lisa said...

the front page of DWY now says Recruit assessment closes Oct.7th in the middle of the Dharma logo

Melissa_Lossa said...

Michael Ausiello has a bunch of red carpet interviews from the Emmys HERE

Scroll on the sidebar to see interviews with Emilie DeRavin, Evangeline Lily, Michael Emerson and Daniel Dae Kim. If you're REALLY spoilerphobic, you might want to skip these - they all give really vague answers about the future (Emilie's is probably the most spoilerific).

Zort70 said...

I Lisa, I noticed that as well, it's not new info though as we had the email last week telling us that.

Zort70 said...

Hi Lisa even !

Lisa said...

right, I thought it was just interesting that they put it on the site on the front page. I'm guessing that the web site will go down that day and then maybe come back up as something new after they make our dossier Just my guess though.

Lisa said...

:waves: Hiiiii :-)

Codysmom said...

Good morning, all!

Lisa, you were busy... back to #2 on the leader board!!!

Zort70 said...

Does anyone think, the DWY site will be closed to new users on the 7th and then a new website (different URL) will take over for the next phase ?

I am assuming there will be a next phase after the 7th.

InEnglandAndLost said...

I hope there'll be a next phase... we need something to keep us busy for the next 135 days!!!! (longer for us here in sunny England)

Codysmom said...

Yes, that's what I'm thinking, zort. And if the main focus of this part of the ARG is to get everyone on board, then it helps to explain the slow progress, IMO. The "make your own test" part may have been to help people form into a community as well as finding those who excell in certain subjects. It could be that they want their "instructors" because we'll be getting into some scientific things that most of us won't understand. IDK, just guessing at all this... but I think the tests and registration may be gone after Oct. 7th and we then are involved in a new Dharma website (I hope!)

Codysmom said...

capcom, if you're out there.. we will need you:)! It's not too late to register!!!

maven said...

Morning all. I, too, am hoping we'll have a new and bigger site on Oct. 7th. And I like your idea Codysmom that the recruits who were picked as instructors has specific knowledge that might play into the pseudo-science of the DI.

EmeraldIsLost said...

Haha, Sunny, thats a good one :)
And its too cold. *grumble grumble grumble.*

Capcom said...

By register, do you mean that I have to go back and take all the tests that I didn't take Codysmom? :-p I will if necessary, for the team. :o)

Codysmom said...

capcom, yes.. I think you'd have to start from the beginning, but it may be too late to be "instructor". It won't take you too long if you use all the cheats we've found:)
yay!!!!! WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU ON THE TEAM!!!!!

Codysmom said...

Just for fun... if you haven't seen The Ack Attack The Top 50 OMGWTF Lost Moments:

http://www.theackattack.com/?p=200

maven said...

Hope you're motivated to join us recruits, Capcom!

Capcom said...

I am already registered (I had to get my card at least, haha!), and took the first two tests. Phooey, I guess I'll take the rest of them today and tomorrow. I'd do it all today, but Fringe and Eureka are on tonight, and I have to babysit the littlest nephew this afternoon.

Capcom said...

P.S. It's too hard to turn down the encouragement of my favorite online LoCo friends!! :-x

MadAriad said...

Codysmom - thanks for posting that link!! ROFL!! That was the best Lost-related thing I've seen since Slovaltine and the Black Swan myspace!

MadAriad said...

PS
I WANT LOST!!! IS IT JANUARY YET???!!!

Codysmom said...

YAY, CAPCOM!!!!!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, thanks for that link, codysmom - that was just what I needed! My favorite is #17:

If anything goes wrong, Desmond will be Daniel’s Constant: If anything goes right, Desmond will be MY Constant.

Amen to that!

Melissa_Lossa said...

I also agree with #24 - that "Theresa falls down the stairs, Theresa falls up the stairs" thing messed up my head for WEEKS!

Codysmom said...

I love the Ack Attacks, too, melissa!! Usually memphish posts those links.. so I thought I'd take over for now:) Enjoying our weather, I hope?

Melissa_Lossa said...

It is SO beautiful here. Perfect weather - warm and sunny during the day, and cool at night. We re-palnted our front lawn a couple of weeks ago, so it's perfect grass-growing conditions!

Codysmom said...

mel, what a coincidence.. we did new grass this year, too (and it's doing great). This is what I call California weather... lucky ducks who live there (maven:)

ANM said...

LOL...it just rained like there was a second flood comming here in Spain, which is actually unusual this time of the year....well, at least it cleaned up the air a bit!

Melissa_Lossa said...

codysmom - I have a friend from Michigan who moved to San Fran last year. When she visited this summer, she said how happy she was to be in some nice warm weather for a change!

Our grass is still growing in, but it's doing really well so far. The lawn was a mess when we moved in.

Is this what we're reduced to?! Talking about our lawns?! Curse you, DHARMA!!

takes a village said...

Jump right in Capcom.We really missed you.
This ARG is so slow,that by next Tuesday,you'll probably be all caught up, and bored like the rest of us.

Codysmom said...

Is this what we're reduced to?! Talking about our lawns?! Curse you, DHARMA!!
ROFL!!!!!!!!!
And when I said CA weather I meant like in Aliso Viejo:)

Codysmom said...

Hey, guys!!!!!!!

My German friend, Alex at myspace only has 100 Dharma Points.... please take his test (even if your sick of tests:)!!!!!!

http://www. dharmawantsyou. com/site/?utid=806996410947193183633099088695/qp

Codysmom said...

hmmm.. link isn't working..... sorry.. will try to get one that works.

maven said...

Talking about weather and lawns...LOL!

ANM said...

Ok little BS' I'll see you tomorrow after I read up on the new test/possible cheat!!
xoxo

Codysmom said...

Correct link for Alex's test:

http://www.dharmawantsyou.com/site/?utid=806996410947193183633099088695#/quizplayer

that's the one!!! It's a good one includes Lost philosophers:)
Thanks!!!!

Capcom said...

Heheh, Melissa, I read your post in my mind as "re-painted our front lawn", LOL!

ANM, and all you other non-US LoCos...it is so AWESOME to be chatting with people from all over the world here! :-D I love it. We sure picked up a lot of new friends during this ARG, so if nothing else interesting comes of it, it was great for that!

Tx for the encouraging words about taking the tests, Village. xo

Ange said...

Here I come...

Ange said...

108!

Welcome back Campoop!

Codysmom said...

Very cool, ange:)

Yay, capcom!!!!!!!! And you're right about meeting all the new people for all over... it's wonderful!! Right now I have an Irish guy taking the German guy's test on myspace....lol

Capcom said...

LOL Ange. X-D

Now if we can only lure Memphish and Lost2010 back into the game. :-o

Neat, Codysmom, you're all over the map!

melodious said...

Dharma's updating...

Codysmom said...

Thanks for the info, melodious!

Fringe was really good tonight!

Ange said...

New Post

Updating...LOL I'll add more as it comes. Fingers crossed it's before I hit the sack. So you there!

Lisa said...

Guess I can't gain anymore Dharma points tonight then since the site is updating. I think I will head to bed, not feeling to great anyway. Night all, hope you get the test all figured out for when I get up lol
