Okay, before we get into the reveal, I just have to paste this here, some lovely soul linked me to it, and eases my suffering that I posted of earlier today, regarding TVNZ's 6 week delay in eps last year. Deep breath -

"The final season of Lost has been promised to be aired as close to its US release as possible. The word simulcast was used but no one expects the show to air at 2pm. TV2 has it listed in a Wednesday timeslot which means the best we can hope for is that ABC in the US move the show to a Tuesday so that it will air here within hours. If not, one can only assume that New Zealand internet traffic will be incredibly low for the six days post the season finale in the US as kiwi fans avoid websites spoiling the mystery."

So there we have it - moved to a Tuesday in the US... for the first time I will be able to take part in all the online stuff, as episodes air. Im not sure theres a word for how Im feeling!... Sorry, Im gushing!

Justin said...

Haha nice! Thanks for the Front Page credit Zort!

Congested said...

Nice work Justin

mrtibbs said...

Nice one Justin. I think that this was the toughest yet, well for me anyway. I just woke up and took me a few minutes to figure out the time difference between HI and the UK! See you all after work!

sophieBOYY said...

Wow - a time that may make it easier for me to get a poster - uber excited now!

Well done for figuring it out Justin!!!


Can't wait =D

-xx-

Patmc said...

@Zort - I tried to email you some pictures of "The Barracks", but your email box is full. I'll be happy to send them to a different email address, or just hang onto them until you ask for them. Just let me know... Oh, and I also posted a link in the last comments, to my Picasa account, if you want to look at them that way.

HAPPY POSTER DAY EVERYONE!!!

ChrisL said...

Aloha!! Good morning/evening/night all!

Today is going to be too exciting. Once again - Justin - amazing work and I see Lotto has been at it while I slept and it seems everything is already organized. I never fail to be impressed by everyone here!

Heading off to work and will catch up with you all in a couple of hours.

Peter said...

Fantastic work all!! Happy Poster Day! I fear that I may be on a train at that time - gutted. Wishing everyone all the luck - Can't wait to see it!

Zort70 said...

Pat, I got one of the emails, but that filled things up !

Can you send to lostargs (at) hotmail.com

Patmc said...

You got it... :-)

Zort70 said...

vabauer - Thanks for the timings, I've added them to the main page.

Zort70 said...

By the way attachments over 10mb cause problems, so anything under 10mb is great.

Patmc said...

When attached they grow a little. Let me know if you get both emails... if not, I'll break them down into smaller emails. Or I could always use YouSendIt or something...

scottbphilp said...

5am for me! Sooo sleepy. Glad to see the time zones work out for most everyone else though. Would be nice to be in the UK for this one I think.

Zort70 said...

Pat, got both emails, thanks vmuch

curiousgeo108 said...

@ justin
Yikes! Just popped by to find the reveal Hot-on-the-Heals of your most excellent sleuthing! And how cool that "Lost-Folk" are stationed over nearly every square meter of earths surface to report on location!
Especially cool that Ryan Ozawa, our "Big Kahuna" of Lost reporting will be there!!

roxanna said...

hi everyone! Busy week for me & I finally (at 4am) have the time to catch up on comments :)
(600 total for this week so far!)

I loved the podcast. Great job, everyone!

Best of luck today :)

Martyn said...

Nice on Justin, great sleuthing!

This time is a little bad for me, havin to rely on my girlfriend to get it for me. But alas, she's only seen me at work for the Jacobs Cabin print so I hope she mows how quick she has to be.

Nice pictures of the Barracks, Patmac but confirms that I'm glad I didn't go for it. Not liking the hatching over the hills. Ruins it somewhat for me.

Damn, will take a laptop with me and try for it myself, I know she won't get one on her crappy laptop.

See you all on the other side!

Lisa said...

wow glad to see the times up now just hoping that means I can get one. I pick my son up from school at 2:15 est so I hope and pray they are done by then. great work on the clues !!

ChrisL said...

Good to see everyone checking in...

Patmac - great pics

Martyn - I feel the opposite... I'm so pleased that I managed to get a copy of the Barracks eventually, I think it will look stunning framed.

So what's it going to be today? So many of you want Ben and the donkey wheel. I hope it's that for all of you and that you all get one!

(n) said...

Well, let's see, it's 5:30am, I won't leave work for at least another hour...gotta be up at 1pm..yeah I can do that!

Lookin' forward to the reveal! Woo hoo!

JPL said...

Aloha & Good Morning -

Re: Podcast... Amazing job all! Zort, your words of wisdom at the end summed it all up.

To the folks in Hawaii... THANKS.

See you all at 1:30 EST!

ImAnnie/Davide said...

i need to see jacob's cabin's pictures... i really need :D and the barracks too..

andalone said...

I am still in need of The Barracks at a fair price. Please?!

Good luck to all today.

mrtibbs said...

I really hope one of the remaining posters is by Tyler Stout (and that I get one). Check out his Big Lebowski poster here.

http://www.tstout.com/shared/poster_zoom/lebowski_zoom.jpg

Zort70 said...

ImAnnie/Davide, there are some links in the previous post comments for The Barracks and Jacobs Cabin.

There will be a main blog post on both sometime in the near future.

ChrisL said...

My Swan Station finally arrived! OOOOH I LOVE IT!

Zort70 said...

Here they are :

The Barracks from PatMc

sdad said...
While pondering the pineapple, I received my copy of "Jacob's Cabin" today, and it turned out to be even more striking than I had expected. Between the dark nature of the piece and the gloss of the raindrop layer, it's hard for a novice like me to get a photograph that does it justice, but I tried to get a few shots:

Zort70 said...

Ah that should be Dylansdad said...

Lisa said...

wow, the shack is beautiful ! I didn't think I liked it till I see that close up ! Now I'm sad I missed it.
Good day for a reveal, it's pouring out and dreary.

Mike said...

I would really like to get a poster, how long after the reveal does the poster actually go on sale?

Mike said...

Nice Jacobs Cabin. Can't wait to get mine.

Peter said...

Really nice Zort - nice macro shots there.

Don't need to highlight my jealousy to you, ChrisL!

Mike, last time the print sold out in 3mins or 8? Regardless - it was QUICK!

Zort70 said...

Peter, they aren't my shots, my copy has not arrived yet.

Peter said...

Zort, apologies. I'm easily confused! Great pics Dylansdad!!

Martyn said...

Right, sorted my LOST rewatch out to work up to the 2nd Feb. One episode a week until the week of the 2nd where I watch the last 3 episodes, one a day.

Also charged up my laptop so it's ready for some heavy F5 bashing. Hope the other people around me aren't looking at me too weirdly.

ChrisL said...

Sorry Peter... If it's any consolation, you're welcome to gaze longingly at my Swan Station next time you're home for a visit!

Kelly said...

Reveal day = excitement and nervousness at actually being able to get one if you really really like it!!!!

I've been to the area where the reveal is in the past and wish I could be there again!!

Also, Zort, finally got a late listen to the podcast, but so cool to put voices with names!

Martyn said...

Totally forgot but got my Hatch back today, looks very nice indeed, like i've just received it for the first time again. Anyway, here's a picture of my LOST wall. The small green canvas under the Dharma Van is of Locke's Secret, which looks great next to my The Brain That Wouldn't Die Canvas print.

Also, see the empty spot that's longing for another LOST poster?

Mike said...

Yeah Peter I know how slim the changes are (I still kick myself for not ordering ones earlier before the craze). But when does the page go from "coming soon" to an order button?

scottbphilp said...

Off for a few hours sleep. See you all for the reveal.

Amy Lynn said...

Happy Poster Day!

ChrisL said...

Hi Amy Lynn - Happy poster day to you too!

It feels more exciting to me today with the clues having taken so long to solve. I am so ready for this.

@Mike. It seems to be around 20 - 30 minutes or so. Hence all the talk of refresh, refresh, refresh!

Peter said...

For me, I believe it was quite long (for my first time - longer than i expected). About 10-15 mins I believe.

Attorney Greg said...

Good luck to all - I hope its a great one.

Martyn - Nice pic

Got my "And that's why my hand was shaking . . . " yesterday - haven't opened yet as was swamped with work, but looking forward to getting that one properly framed and hung.

Michael said...

Okay, I just needed to know the time frame

Mrs Z said...

Just wanted to pop in and say good job to Justin for figuring this one out! And to everyone else for their always stellar sleuthing. I haven't had a chance to listen to the pocast yet, but after all these reviews, I can't wait! I have blocked off a "meeting" on my calendar from 12:30 - 2:30 EST just in case. Happy Poster Day!

Jesse t said...

good morning everyone. good luck if your going for the poster.

Dragon Management said...

Can someone please post a list of the Hawaii Twitterers? Thanks.

Amy Lynn said...

@hawaii
@jarofclay73

Amy Lynn said...

Hey, if any of all y'all don't listen to the Jay & Jack LOST podcast, they are having a huge contest (http://globalcashcard.com/lost/) to create your own last few minutes of the LOST finale. They haven't announced the prizes yet, but it looks super fun.

Zort70 said...

The easiest thing to do is follow LotteryTickets Twitter List :

John said...

Excitement is building...wait, too early...keep cool...will I like it?...do I make the attempt to buy?...come on 1:30 Est already!

Scoutpost said...

Morning all. Getting kids off to school and all, but will be back later this morning. Nice pics of JC and The Barracks.

Sam G said...

Good Luck everyone. I wish everyone an error free day and no problems at the check out.

MWolverine said...

I have the feeling that today's poster is going to be a good one... so much anticipation this week!

Ellen said...

email...:)
xxoo

Kyle Scribner said...

i still haven't figured out how to follow a twitter list. if someone would be kind enough to hold my hand thru the process, i'd appreciate it. maybe a step-by-step?

ImAnnie/Davide said...

"Ellen said...

email...:)
xxoo"


WTH?

Zort70 said...

Kyle you don't need to follow it, just use the URL above and refresh it. All the updates for people in that list will be shown.

Casey said...

Will today be the day?!?! oh please let it be.

Zort70 said...

ImAnnie/Davide - When you post you can subscribe to the comments so that all comments are emailed to you.

The option is "Email follow-up comments to xxxxxxx"

You have to do this for each post. Ellen always pops in and subscribes.

ChrisL said...

Zort, you are the ultimate gracious host. Do you plan to go for it today?

Casey said...

Does anyone have a link to one of the older sign in screens? I botched my login last week, and was hoping to sort it out before the reveal.

James said...

poster day!

Amy Lynn said...

@Casey, try http://actuallyitsketchup.com/dcpb/xr/body.php?module=account_profile&id=1

milesaway said...

I'm so excited, this is my first time actually being able to try! I hope I don't mess it up

TabulaRasa said...

Good Morning/Afternoon. I'm hoping for no 404 messages today and a poster featuring a Ben stick.

mahalo

Zort70 said...

Oh yes, there will be one less poster available today :-)

Is that being too confident ?

ImAnnie/Davide said...

I love you zort. :D

Lisa said...

Does anyone know how to create an account/register your credit card information onto the Lost site BEFORE the reveal today? For instance if I want to be "logged in" when I click Buy Now, so I can get through faster. Any ideas?

Rowe said...

Good luck to everyone going for a poster today, and for those not, well, have lots of fun anyways...

I wonder if any Lost cast members will show up at the reveal, they are filming in Honolulu after-all so it would probably be really easy and a fun thing for the fans. I am so excited to see what Ryan has to say about the reveal, should be a good one.

Casey said...

@Amy Lynn -Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for.

Casey said...

@Lisa - Amy Lynn sent me this link. I had to check my password. This is where you can set up your account before the reveal. I don't believe you can enter payment info though.

http://actuallyitsketchup.com/dcpb/xr/body.php?module=account_profile&id=1

ChrisL said...

Lisa - see Amy Lynn's response to Casey above :-)

Zort - GOOD LUCK!

Amy Lynn said...

I'll be trying for a poster today for the general good of the LOST fans. I already have Smokey and Walt's Kidnapping, and if I buy another one for me, my boyfriend will literally have my head.

So if I get one, hopefully I'll be able to help someone out.

ImAnnie/Davide said...

can't put credit card info before the reveal.
Can't log-in, too.
Once you clock buy now, you have to do all from the beginning. ;)

Zort70 said...

ImAnnie/Davide said...I love you zort. :D

Don't tell Mrs Zort ;-)

Amy Lynn said...

If you copy/paste your CC number it might go a little faster.

Jeremy said...

@amy lynn

"if I buy another one for me, my boyfriend will literally have my head."

damn ! it's usually the other way around

ChrisL said...

Amy Lynn - You are a star.

Ginger said...

Since we're spreading the love...

I love you Amy Lynn!

You too, Zort!

Edmund said...

best luck everyone!

Capcom said...

G'day Argies, good luck!

Thanks for posting the Barracks closeups Patmc and Zort. I agree with the comment above, seeing the details makes me even more relieved that my order got cancelled, whew. Buying art when you have no money is a huge risk when you can't see the fine details before the purchase. I hate buying something without being able to inspect it first anyway, I'm so picky.

This ARG kind of reminds me of the movie "The 5,000 Fingers Of Dr. T", because TPTB have us all furiously pounding away at our keyboards when sale time comes. :o)

LotteryTicket said...

good morning. this is the only post I'm going to get in before reveal. I have given Ryan all the instruction I can think of. Jen is up for trying for poster.

Zort70 I passed on admins . . e-mail,but if @hawaii needs different, just let him know. I explained the 'blackout' 20 mins. while we are refreshing.

no time to go back and read thru comments, everyone please try for poster, I want happy LOSTIES today! If you decide it's NOT for you there will be others who desire that just don't have computing speeds.

today the whole world will be 'lit' as time zone is perfect for reveal (with the exception of Hiroki-san who reports he'll be in the dark).

tweeter @hawaii @jarofclay tks.

Scoutpost said...

Happy Poster Day ya'll! And remember..."happy" is relative. ;)

Man there are so many cool WTC moments that these last few posters could be, it ramps up the excitement/angst for the reveal. I have a feeling I'm really going to want one of these last few and won't be able to get it. Ok, I'm going to think happy thoughts now.

Capcom said...

That's what I was trying for with The Barracks too Amy. Then when everyone seemed to get their Barracks satisfaction around the web last week, it was looking as if I'd be "stuck" with it. :-o There is still one person that I know of who hasdn't been able to get any posters yet, so I still could have worked with her if she wanted it, if it hadn't gotten cancelled. But I'll still try this time too for the same reasons, JIC.

Amy Lynn said...

@Scoutpost... you mean WC, right (watercooler). Being a New Yorker, WTC has a whole different meaning.

Ellen B said...

Whew! We lost power for about ten minutes. I almost had to use my laptop, which might be okay since I've been unable to score a poster using my desktop for ages!

ChrisL said...

Thanks for the hard work Lotto - Good luck.

Zort70 said...

Right, leaving work now, back on line soon.

Hiroki Tojo said...

Greeting from Tokyo. Happy revealing!
When I saw the pineapple clue, I searched the word pineapple and it found an article that pineapple was in source code of Ajira airways site...so I thought it would be Hawaii.I want to go Ala moana shopping center!

ChrisL said...

Yep - Fearing the Friday evening traffic nightmare I'm heading home too. Fingers itching to refresh!

Ellen B said...

Had to reset the modem and router, but now I have my Internet connection back everywhere. Joy!

ChrisL said...

Ellen B - Phew!

Scoutpost said...

@AmyLynn- yes thanks for the correction! Don't know what I was thinking...guess I need more caffeine. doh!

Amy Lynn said...

jarofclay73 posted
Greetings from LOST-land (a.k.a. Hawaii)!!!! I've actually been up all night working. I'll be going to the ARG site right after work.

Martyn said...

Almost two hours to go, almost at my final destination, got to check in, Unload the car, rent bikes and find a wifi spot.

I just know this is one I'm going to want. I will have two people trying for this so if anyone is unlucky, hopefully I can help people out.

Now that is being too confident.

As always, good luck to everyone trying today, thanks to Lottery Ticket and Zort for their wonderful service to this ARG and us losties, well appreciated.

J said...

LostinLondon here

excited for reveal day!
Arrived in Florida yesterday and going to try and buy a poster from my third country! already managed it from Cambodia and UK!

Saw all my posters last night - it was a bit of a feat opening 6 at once but so exciting, think my parents were a bit bemused by it all.

Love the Transmission, Swan and four-toed statue IRL, don't know why they don't get enough love!

Crash is obviously fab and the colours look great

love the gold on the smoke monster and the only one that i can see not going up on my wall is the hatch, guess i am on my own thinking that!

hope today's is a good 'un and we all have good luck!

Chris Maccagnano said...

Good luck, everybody!

Frank said...

@martyn Where did you get your framing done? Online or local place?

email me the reply to frank . boisvert @ gmail.com please. I'm just looking for something similar to what you did.

Dennis said...

Whose twittering at the revel (and is not private)?

John-Paul said...

Happy reveal day everyone! I'm excited as usual.

Claire said...

Hey guys, so excited for the reveal!!! I was just at the Ala Moana Center in August. I'm glad there's one finally in Hawaii!

Timothy said...

@J/LostinLondon

If you're considering getting rid of the Hatch, please let me know. That is my favorite poster, and I'd love to get a hold of it. Thanks!

blog bloggy blogger said...

Happy F5 day, everyone! Good luck!

MeSoCrazy said...

Excited. Nervous. Hope that if it's one I have to have I can somehow find a way to get it. (I'm never this positive). And as always good luck to everyone. But please don't take my poster away. ;)

Stupid work getting in the way of what's really important.

notsimba said...

Mahalo eveyone and good luck.

A Friend said...

Good luck everybody. If anybody has an extra Locke's Secret I am very interested. Such a cool project.

John-Paul said...

I hate to be a negative nancy, but does it worry anyone else that a lot of people that come in this thread now are just using it to help score the prints for resale? It kinda upsets me.

Kyle Scribner said...

Zort, thanks. sorry for making you point out the obvious.

good luck everybody! c'mon charlie floating!

reAnimated said...

Received my print of The Barracks this morning.

105/300.

Good Luck all. 1.5 hours away!

The Blot said...

Good luck everyone! Can't wait to see what "water cooler moment" today's poster reveal will bring!

Mike said...

Morning to all. Just got my Daniel Danger print yesterday. it is a bit on the dark side but pretty sweet. Anyone think the print is a bit dark?

kmfdm11031 said...

I finally have enough extra cash to try to buy one of these. Apparently the key word is try. Is this where the link to buy one is going to be? I came over from dark ufo and i'm not sure exactly what to do. I did open up an account like someone recommended.

Lisa said...

THANK YOU Amy Lynn! And if you are ever looking to off-load one of those posters, just let me know...

Claire said...

Hey guys is there anyway to log into your account? I'm scared I can't remember which password I picked and I wanna check...

maven said...

Aloha to all! And to all the best of luck in your endeavors to score this poster today! Not leaving for our cruise until 11:30AM PST so I'll be around to partake!

Attorney Greg said...

This comment use to contain a long winded commentry on the state of affairs. You can thank me later for replacing it with this.

Adam G said...

I can't wait to see if my Barracks print came. I have the ping ball balls in a frame, and just missing the print to go with it!

comixguru said...

Good morning and a happy Lost Print day to everyone! I'm sporting my Polar Beer t-shirt for good luck today.

Best of luck to all! :)

The Blot said...

@Adam G

You'll have to post pics after you include the Barracks print, that sounds like an awesome frame job!

Claire said...

@comixguru I should have worn mine for good luck too! Good idea :)

comixguru said...

@Martyn - your framed LOST prints look great! :) Good luck getting another one for that empty space :)

The Bench Coach said...

The Polar Beer shorts came out great! I got mine yesterday! Now I just need one print to go with it...this is the one! I can feel it!

comixguru said...

@AmyLynn- thanks for helping out fellow Losties! Whoever the lucky person is- they will be eternally grateful :) Good luck to you!

The Bench Coach said...

I meant shirts obviously...though I guess shorts would be cool too...maybe?

kiwilostie said...

Zort, are you starting a new post, or are we here for the reveal?

reAnimated said...

Man I havent gotten my polar beer tee yet. Still in the mail.

MeSoCrazy said...

As long as they are short shorts Coach.

John-Paul said...

Question to anyone who knows.

What's the deal with IP addresses? If my roommate and I try to both buy a poster, will that not work? I'm not too tech savvy and I don't know how all of that works.

comixguru said...

@Maven -yay! glad you are able to play today before you go away. Good luck!

The Bench Coach said...

I don't dare wear short shorts...

wordsequalpower said...

Greetings from 4:30am hot-as-the-blazes Sydney! As luck would have it, this heatwave has kept me awake so I can catch a 5:30 am reveal.
Good luck to everyone, I hope I'm lucky enough to get my first print!

kiwilostie said...

Got my polar beer shirts last night! Super fast n cheap shipping. Did forget however to put it on this morning!

ChrisL said...

Not only did I get my Swan Station today - just arrived home to find mine and my daughters FuryTees waiting for us! So Far So Good this day...

Have to cook now... REALLY QUICKLY!

Ellen B said...

I gotta go eat some lunch. It's the only way to calm down the butterflies!

Lisa said...

Ok, I see we have another Lisa now. I think I will go back to my other blogger name of Maladylis while we do this since I don't want us to get confused. >>>Maladylis

Christine said...

@john-paul, no two computers on a network can have the same IP address. You and your roommates will be similar but not the same :)

Attorney Greg said...

Re Wordsequalpower: Oh my god - someone's posting from Tomorrow!

Jim MacLeod said...

Restarting my computer now so I can be fresh.
Still waiting to receive my Cabin print.

Attorney Greg said...

Find your constant!! Or a tissue.

Claire said...

@Attorney Greg Time travel? Hopefully Wordsequalpower has a constant...

Lol Lost jokes.

Zort70 said...

Ok NEW POST for the reveal discussions

The Bench Coach said...

Is anyone tweeting yet? I don't see anything on lostarg-frame-14.

kmfdm11031 said...

is this where we need to be to find the new url to get the poster. I just want to make sure i'm following in the right place. Thanks

Charles said...

Yes - Does anyone have any tips on guarenteeing you get one? Like do I just keep refreshing the DCPB main page?

blog bloggy blogger said...

@Charles - no! you will find it too late that way! check comments on the latest post on this site

Ellen B said...

Yum. I had Weight Watchers cranberry turkey medallions for lunch. :)

Charles said...

blog bloggy...thanks, but the last time I tried that I ended up going to a fake site... :-/

Charles said...

...nice try though.

Ellen B said...

Charles, there are no guarantees with any of this.

vabauer said...
