There was also a camera with a fstop after the hopscotch image.
I'll post it in a a sec.

Diane, this case gives me a strange feeling... this is one of Cole's blue rose cases.

Just my luck that when I finally do experience the start of a mission I have a big day ahead of me and need to get to bed. Oh well, I guess I'll do it tomorrow evening.

Have fun all of you in better suited time zones.

I now have a signature.

If you go to the backdoor site (linked from the breifing) and click the petals on the flower, red yellow green blue (as in the briefing) a password window pops up.

That wasn't a camera, looked like a remote control for a car or something.

Well a first (obvious?) step is to follow the link on the mission to MS-RandD.com. If you click on the petals in the flower at the top right of the page in the order
    red - yellow - green - blue
then the page drops to reveal a passcode entry field.

Also, the passcode window doesn't work in Camino (clicking the petals in the right order does nothing sad)

Works in safari though.

MACHEIST titled the image fstop.jpg.

No, it is not a camera, but that's where their mind is, and that's never irrelevant...

That's what I get when I go through the maze.  Could be doing something wrong, though.  Or maybe going backwards.

You get different mazes in Firefox and safari

The letters/numbers you pass in Safari are:
