At the bottom of the page there is a link called ":K:"

It links to <a href="http://uncaptheride.com/babble.html" target="_blank">http://uncaptheride.com/babble.html</a>

<a href="http://www.uncaptheride.com" target="_blank">http://www.uncaptheride.com</a> has this.

"August 06

Old friend, I hold the file.

From what I gather by watching you, I have information you desperately want. Information about the accident.

Of course, I cannot simply give it to you. That would be too easy. I could turn the other cheek, but what fun would that be?
No. You will have to earn this.

Before you call in reinforcements, remind yourself of these three words: Mutual Assured Destruction.
We do not want to make a mess now, do we?

If you doubt me, view this: inmyhands.jpg

To get your hands on the file, use your head. Bring me the keys .

Start in reverse .

:K: "

Looks like Apple got hAx0red <img src="graemlins/embarrassed.gif" border="0" alt="[Embarrassed]" />

Take a look around the site... very weird.

On babble.html, there's some French text:

"Je sais que vous avez un endroit special dans votre coeur pour beemers. Vous devez voir mon noir 1974 2002 coupe. Verifier le NewYorkTimes a classifie; premier le 14 aout, 2002."

Which is to say "I know that you have a special place in your heart for beemers. You should see my black 1974 2002 coupe. Check the New York Times (has classified first?) August 14th, 2002."

And august06.com leads to a Nikon photo sharing thing that has exceeded the allowed hits.

If this were to be believed, then it smacks initially of blackmail. I have the photos? Photos of products? Photos of personal nature?

Blackmail overtones anyway.

The reversed text tells you to add ".com" to the anniversary date.

I tried <a href="http://www.0613.com," target="_blank">www.0613.com,</a> using the obvious numbers on the folder in the photograph, but that leads to a domain for sale...doesn't seem a likely target.

I'm going to go read the HTML source and look for these supposed white on white characters.

Anyway, somebody find the anniversary date and plug it in....

11. Watch for kann’s tag - :K:.
12. The ad for the car in NY Times is in the National Classifieds section.
13. If you see a phone number in an email, go back to the nikonnet album for directions on using the number.
14. Track the package.
15. If you land on a page for a mortgage company, hunt around, it’s there
