XBOX is the worst invention since Ham-flavored massage lotion.

Honestly, Microsoft should rename themselves to blockheadosoft.
Why couldn't they put the effort into a GAME OPTIMISED OS and enhanced gaming computers.

Sony have dominated the console markets in UK & US and it's simply because PS2 is the best. People don't want graphics in consoles, they want games and they want something that looks cool; I've seen elephants smaller than the XBOX.

Anyway, don't bitch at me because I hate consoles. I prefur PCs all the way. It's just I've got an old PS2 that I play with mates now and again.
HALO2 should be out for PC.

EDIT: Flip, I never said the XBOX had crap games? I simply said that people want decent games, and PS2 has a lot more decent games.

Heh, I won't even begin to touch that statement. It's funny how you bash the system for having no good games and then turn around and wish one of them were on your platform of choice rolleyes '

Anyway, this won't be turned into a flamewar. I will delete all posts if it comes down to it. This thread is about the HALO 2 Trailer and not console debate. I'm so tired of having anything Xbox related turned into a flamefest.

And here's a thing... at the end of the Halo 2 trailer the bungie logo turns to ilovebees.com for a second. The website ilovebees.com has all sorts of funky things about it. For one, it has passages that seem extremely abstract but yet hinting at something.

If you refresh the site, not only do the .gif images that make it up start to pixelate. There are weird cryptic messags all over the site, many hinting to Microsoft. You'll also get this popup error:

HALT - MODULE CORE HEMORRHAGE

Control has been yielded to the
SYSTEM PERIL DISTRIBUTED REFLEX.

This medium is classified, and has a
STRONG INTRUSIVE INCLINATION.

In 4 days, network throttling will erode.

In 18 days this medium will metastasize.

COUNTDOWN TO WIDE AWAKE AND PHYSICAL:
31:17:30:28:573

Make your decisions accordingly.


Tons of people are trying to figure out what the relation here is. This has to be a bungie or microsoft owned website because it's withstood the hits of a few million people overnight. We'll see where this is all going in a few days I suppose.

Very Strange.

Found this as well:

MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY
black beach, nothing but sand and darkness. Sometimes, in the distance, dry lightning: in the flash I see pieces of the wreck around me, the spars and rigging of my brain

-hold on. hold on. Steady up. Get a grip, girl. You have to fight through this.

Take a deep breath.

Survival Key #3: How Badly Are You Hurt?

Mentally, subject is confused and disoriented.



This is my web page mostly dedicated to beekeeping. I have been beekeeping for seven years and I?m still learning. I have three hives and I produce and sell pure and natural honey (unheated and unfiltered, unlike grocery store honey.) Click here for more about Margaret's Honey.

I keep slipping in and out of consciousness.

Physically, subject is paralyzed but moving.

Okay.

What the hell does THAT mean?

Held down: yes. As if strapped to a table. Could I be in traction in some sick bay, some hospital ward?

Not necessarily one of ours.

But at the same time, parts of me being moved around, emptied out. As if under general anaesthetic, dimly conscious, half-aware as the surgeon cuts off my feet and sews them onto my shoulders. She opens my head with a medical hammer and sand spills out.

I WANT TO DIE I WANT TO-

-no.

never that.

survive evade reveal escape. That is all you know, or need to know.



It was lying around as an abstraction on one of the pages.


And about the Halo 2 trailer, haven't seen it yet as it is taking quite awhile to load. Will wait some more....

The person's name is Ladybee777. If you take 777 and multiply them, you get 343. Any Halo fan knows the significance of 343 and Guilty Spark. ... Hmmm..

Bungie's definitely has something to do with it.

http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=364518&viewreplies=true&postRepeater1-p=1

Notice how, despite the fact that this is a 128 page thread, not a single admin or moderator has replied in this ever growing thread.


And about the 343 thing, I have no clue what it is b/c I never finished the game.

Since I have dial-up (really slow) internet, I could not see the trailer for myself, sadly, so thanks for pointing this out! biggrin smile

Another strange thing, if you open up the messed up images in notepad or wordpad, there is some text hidden among the binary code.

Also, if you check out the whois record, there is also another domain name registered by her, ilovebees.net .

OK, I scanned teh HTML on the ilovebees.com website and got this under the metatags section:

"honey, bees, Margaret, small busines, beekeeping,
hives, retail, market, Operator, bug, buggy, virus, infestation, WTF is
going on with this damn thing, parasite, strong intrusive inclination, medium,
messages, shipwreck, network throttling, SOS, hoax, game, bee hoax, bee game,
survivor, survive, evade, resist, escape, a little help would be appreciated,
thanks and tip your waitress, sleep, is, good, install, reinstall,
re-reinstall, re-re-reinstall,
I, love, bees"

Crazy hey?

in ilovebees.blogspot.com the Hotmail account (run my Micro$oft) is "hijacked," and the August 24th entry mentions Windows 95 was released. This is going to be interesting...

-Any help would be great,

PS: Hilight the bottom of the page and you'll see "

PPSS: Hmm... I think I get it now, do you? (hint, apply some of those crpytic messages to Masterchief's mind? )

Ah ha! Microsoft can't fool me cause I'm too loyal. razz

1.) Okay, I decided to obtain the IP of the website. I pinged it. Like all of MS sites, there was no reply.

2.) I then decided to trace the website and found that it was located in Washington. (Hmmmm, seems awfully significant wouldn't you say?)

Also for anyone wondering about how the site keeps changing, from reading the HTTP headers, it seems that the server keeps track of who leaves and is thus able to change the site on the fly to that user.


Oh yeah, for the countdown..it's pretty hilarious. No doubt MS work. wink

If you set your computer clock to the countdown date and time, the countdown starts to count upwards. Also, as teh coding suggests, when reached a certain time/date, it will randomly select a new date. So thus, it will never end.

Just to let you know, all Javascript countdowns (to my knowledge) have that feature. It's just something some people never think about when they make the coding, I guess.

The crazy thing is, apparently, from what I read on google searches, the ilovebees.com site is real, and is purposefully being changed. Maybe the website's owner is affeliated with MS/Bungie? Who knows?

"Whoa"

www.argn.com says here...



"ARGN got a very odd Fedex package just now. It was from Margaret's Honey, ostensibly in San Francisco, and contained the honey-filled bear to the left.

Lo and behold, in the honey were 9 cutout alphabet letters. I've heard of alphabet soup, but alphabet honey?? Ahem....Anyway, the letters in question were: o-i-v-e-e-s-b-l-e. Anagramming the letters gives us, among other things, I LOVE BEES.

So........www.ilovebees.com. Strange way to start an ARG, but that's what it looks like. Things are not what they appear to be at ilovebees.com.

Stealth launch. I love it. smile

Two rabbitholes in one day..........weird.

[EDIT: We've dubbed this game SPiDeR for now (System Peril Distributed Reflex from the text on the site). A lot better than calling the game I Love Bees. Also, it should be noted that there are indications that this game may be part of another current game, but we don't have enough information yet. We shall see.]"

This is the honey pot they got:

The question in my mind is, "WHY BEES?".

Does it go with the MSN Butterfly or something or perhaps they've figured out the real name for Windows Longhorn: Windows Bees 2006? razz

Who knows but I guess it's safe to say that MS and Bungie are behind this whole website enigma.

Hmm.. found something new.

Don't forget, there was a HUGE halo 2 online beta test a few months ago. 1,000+ people tested a level called "zanzibar". This level was also the level showcased at e3 for multiplayer play ON THE FLOOR, behind closed doors of course BUT, a demo is a demo and it may have been a complete demo. Now we get this "ilovebees" thing. BEES? Why bees? why is the site going haywire? why so many references to halo? why the green, black and orange color scheme? why the countdown to august 24th??? Look what I found...

http://www.eii.org/map/ltfrn_103.htm#eastafrica

Tanzania (Zanzibar)
The Potential of Mangrove Conservation in relation to Beekeeping

...Traditionally, beekeeping activity is dominated by men who practice primitive methods of honey harvesting and handling. Traditional beekeeping does not make use of the correct equipment or modern techniques. Instead, honey is harvested by the use of fires or a live torch, which burns the insects to death. The planned project will train women to practice in the modern techniques for beekeeping which will give bees permanent settlement (home) and improve honey production.
Not to mention there was a report by Frankie stating this:

This week I was recruited for a top secret mission to escort Halo 2 Zanzibar discs to a special event taking place in the Big Apple. As you've read in other updates, Bungie is uber focused on security our builds are never made available to anyone or any group outside of our Studio. So, when the marketing folks stumble across an opportunity to promote Halo 2 and a build is needed, we're called on to deliver the goods and make sure not a single trace is left behind. Duty called and I endured 11 hours of cross country air travel for what amounted to about 1 hour of actual Halo 2 involvement. I can't reveal the specifics of this mission but if it works out, the fruits of our efforts will be revealed sometime in CENSORED. Ask me about it then and I can share some stories! Equally exciting was just strolling through Times Square and getting stopped by dozens of people who noticed my Halo 2 t-shirt. "Halo 2 is going to rock!!" "When is Halo 2 coming out!?" "Can I have a free shirt!?" "Sweet soul patch dude!" It's cool to see so many random people familiar with and fired up about Halo 2. And no, you can't have my shirt.
So Zanzibar has ties to bees? Something big going down with the distribution of the Zanzibar demo? We could very well see this short multiplayer demo released to the public on August 24th. I thought Bungie had said there was no way a demo would ever be released but more and more clues are pointing the other way.

The popup said something would be released tommorow so we'll see how far this rabbit hole goes.

Edit: As it turns out, the part where Bungie said there would never be a demo released was just recently taken off their FAQ. Hmm..

Flip, I really think you've stumbled onto something here... I was discussing with one of my friends just this morning that it could perhaps be a release of a demo to EB Games, and other video game stores. That "bees" info is really bizzare how well it correlates with the game... eek

Alright, the night has passed and there are a bunch of new images/texts/and messages all over the site. The countdown now reads:

PHASE 1 COMPLETE: Network throttling has eroded.

In 14 days this medium will metastasize.

COUNTDOWN TO WIDE AWAKE AND PHYSICAL:
27:13:21:39:393

Make your decisions accordingly.



Anyway, a couple of major developments. Many have speculated that the demo would be released through OXM on August 24th. Previous evidence I've posted makes that scenario more and more likely. Now look what I found in the newest OXM that just hit shelves:

http://members.cox.net/alcaponexb/hpg.jpg

A surprise issue from OXM on August 24th ? Hmm....


And now it seems as though the author of the site 'Dana' is freaking out about the whole website issue and packing up and going to China... CHINA. There is a countdown at the bottom of the page that reads this:

site designed by dana
Time to China!
01:18:50:43:533

Now what is the significance of China you ask? Well, look at the bottom left of this picture..

Wow, no offense but, people are idiots. They're still buying into this whole garbage, thinking it's an AI virus that knows the apocryphal Dana, who alledgedly claims she has fallen victim to this ever so clever enigma.

I pity such users.

//Telling the network subroutine to 'attach' (connect), and do the action 'drop' afterwards. Perhaps connecting and then immediately dropping after passively storing information about the connection? !route likely is saying the different actions it can take: procedure (protocol?) attach (like TCP/IP protocol for connecting), and then protocol/procedure either net (network completely, gain a full connection?), grope (examine?), and sur (??? at this point).

I haven't read through... this is all very similiar of the DataDyne scandal rare created before perfect dark was released.

I'm guessing you've all seen the "ilovebees" reference in the actual trailer. Right?

Indeed, although I've never seen anything this in depth. I'm not really expecting a demo or early release or anything at all really, perhaps a new trailer or something. But it's fun to try and suspect either way smile

Yes, this is no doubt very interesting.

What I posted before about the countdown was a little weird because I think that the person came up with that using letters from the whole section as one, rather than decode each line of text. It's most likely not as valid as I would have hoped it to have been.

"evil wishes come home to roost" ?? or evil wishes like chicken, come home to roost?
hmmm? what possibally could this mean? Come home? to what? earth?argh my brain hurts.....

" BEE from Mount Hymettus, the queen of the hive, ascended to Olympus to present Jupiter some honey fresh from her combs. Jupiter, delighted with the offering of honey, promised to give whatever she should ask. She therefore besought him, saying, "Give me, I pray thee, a sting, that if any mortal shall approach to take my honey, I may kill him." Jupiter was much displeased, for he loved the race of man, but could not refuse the request because of his promise. He thus answered the Bee: "You shall have your request, but it will be at the peril of your own life. For if you use your sting, it shall remain in the wound you make, and then you will die from the loss of it."

from some other board:
"Just thought that was interesting.
I'm starting to think that:
Greek gods=forerunners
Bees=covenant who begged the forerunners for help destroying humans, but ended up with a new problem of their own.
Stinger=Flood
Humans=humans " ??????????!!!!!!

anyways crap this......
dont waste your precious time and energy

In this part of the site the animated gif of the dancing Bee seems to be a little wierd

EDIT:

this scares me....quoted from the left side bar at the bottom

"Contact me!


is underway.

ESCAPE
Ultimately, I need to return to ... wherever I was, and report ... whatever I witnessed. For this, too, I must be wide awake and physical. My current shell is insecure, precarious, and too confining. Also, ghostly. Without a true body, I feel transitory and insubstantial.

So: I have identified a way to escape from "
