From the Briefing translated by Google Translate:

"In order to solve this is your acumen in demand. It is a tricky task… a paradox… a dilemma. Use the rolling five, one and four. Set the top positions on T, M and A. Finally, the male body as a board with the O F, P with Q, W and S, R and E with Z with I exchanged. Good luck to you Candlestick…"

In order to solve this, you must watch very close. It is a difficult task, a paradoxon, a dilemma. Use the cylinder 5, 1 and 4. Set the starting position to T, M and A. Finally,  set the board so the O is exchanged with F, P with Q, W with S, E with R and Z with I. Good luck, fool...

If you open in TextEdit, it mentions the Enigma. The text from the briefing was also German...

The keyboard picture  ... looks like the T M and O (as well as J and K and E) are about the only letters in their "normal" positions.

The Enigma Simulator has three different views.  Apple+1, Apple+2, Apple+3

The Apple+2 view or "Steckerbrett" is where you can "set the board so the O is exchanged with F, P with Q, W with S, E with R and Z with I."

isn't the 'starting position' when typing on a keyboard (or typewriter) with your fingers on: ASDF(left hand) JKL;(right hand) ??

i noticed in the translation it said 'starting position' and then with all the typewriter photos before the heist... just a thought... or a rabbit trail.

I went through those letter pairs and ended up with TOD on the upper setting at the end.

That is,  I click on the O until the F lit up, then began clicking on the P until the Q lit up and so on, W to S, E to R and Z to I.  Following this, the upper setting was TOD.

OK, but where did it come from? The Gopher server?

Just use a regular text mode gopher client, don't use a web browser to connect to a gopher service.

I'm able to connect to it just fine.  Downloading all the individual files now.

Update, looks like the gopher server just got slashdotted or something.  It just booted me and won't let me reconnect.  I did get the SafetyCheck.lib file downloaded.

Just called them. It's the answering machine for Connected Media Net.

It's a message from Charles at their customer support about their alpha product BugZapper. It's been receiving great feedback. After using the prerelease of BugZapper, if there was an OSCAR for Mac software, it would definitely deserve one, says Mike, a satisfied BugZapper user.

Oscar is said real weird, with a lot of emphasis on it.

Yes.
