I figured out the "Swords of the TV Generation"-thing and could handle the Enigma thing, but those logic puzzles really get me as English is not my native language. sad

For The Swords of the Television Generation, I did a quick google and brought up the following website:

www . swordsofthetelevisiongeneration . com

Right-click on the page and view the source. At the bottom of the source there's a link to the next image that goes in the top-left of where the first image from the text file goes.

Yeah, nothing shows up for me either. Odd.

Turns out that if you select the newline in the txt file along with the url, the mainframe won't take it. You have to select just the url without the newline.

PS: Anyone, if you are stuck here, just take the clues by those who have gone before. This puzzle and the previous one are exactly from last year, with just very slight variations. Most of the work of solving the puzzles was done last year, so many people are just taking shortcuts, leaving the newbies a bit clueless.

Also, it is funny that some people who are actually solving the puzzles (for example, those who got the first piece), are giving up, because it doesn't make sense. IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO MAKE SENSE YET.

Chillin' with the BLUE team.

I put in the wormzapper web address followed by the hex.  I got a similar, but different graphic like the one downloaded from the remote.

Kurailord: Go to mainframe . macheist . com/
Enter the two URLs to the .tga pictures there.

The first one was the one from www . swordsofthetelevisiongeneration . com
The second one is mentioned a million times in this thread. (the one at www . wormzappertheapp . com)

Hope that helps.

if you submit the command
tftp wormzappertheapp.com
tftp> get enigma.txt
Received 66 bytes in 0.0 seconds
tftp> quit
into terminal you will get an address
from the enigma text
from this address you will download a picture thats how far ive gotten so far cant
make sense of the image though.

There are two ways to find this -- you can search on your hard drive for enigma.txt, which is the file you just downloaded.

I'm 95% sure, however, that it downloads to your home directory...  /Users/username/enigma.txt

Check in your home folder for it.
