Lisa, the Perplexer.  Well Well Well.

Thanks, Directorate.  That was an AWESOME Heist! 

Quite fun, even if I am in trouble with my wife now.  wink

What a mess we have to clean up now . . .

The first person to solve heist 6 was MikeB7332. He'll be getting a Delicious Generation T-shirt as a reward.

Ares is also Mars, by the way...

So we do have four planetary bodies at this point...

Of course it might be irrelevant now that someone has posted a code...

hehehe Macheist 2...we gotta take down lisa!

Actually, I don't think that's too far off the mark. I'm reminded of some suspense/action movie plot formulas (i.e. Eraser, Firewall, Shooter) where the hero has been recruited by someone or works for someone who is part of a secret group, only to be betrayed by said boss/recruiter behind their back. Later the hero comes back to give the betrayer his/her comeuppance.

I wonder if this is what MH2 is about - our chance to exact revenge on Lisa.

Fantastic Heist! The loot from this heist is fantastic stuff - I'm definitely upgrading when the chance rolls around. Thank you Macheist software devs!

Perfect. That is to say, slightly flawed. The mark of a true gentleman.

Wrong.  I'm in accelerated algebra II and I'm pretty sure you gotta use this formula: http://www.mathwords.com/b/b_assets/bin … ormula.gif

I'm in Honors Pre Calc/ Calc A and I agree.

THe possible is n^k, not n!/(k!*(n-k!)). Your equation gives the number of unordered possibilities. As for class, I'm a prime example that passing a class didn't mean you learn the content very well. I've never failed, but I am looking stuff up all the time.

I know the code has been found, but did anyone go further with the wrappedinbacon site, and check out the pictures on the creeping .Mac web page?
Not that it has anything to do with anything, just wondering....

Ack...I'm wondering why so many people got hung up on wrappedinbacon?! And don't get me started on the moonphases thing.

It'd be like having the first step of the heist be to go to fakescottishaccent.com or something.

Also, the heists are pretty much self-contained so we wouldn't expect you to use something like the iSight page from a previous heist. What's pretty funny about this is that it seemed like more people used it for this heist then the one it was supposed to be used for (getthoSight...bah!).

Funnily enough, I enjoyed using the old webpage because I finally got a webcam!  I missed out on the fun first time around.  tongue 

I think everyone was just looking for a chance to relive all the glory of the many MH Heists - plus the monkey-esque olive-chase put me in mind of days gone by, so perhaps that suggested to many of us that elements from the other Heists would be incorporated.  It is a powerful idea.  big_smile

That was a hoot.

I kept getting "pulsing lights turn into one" back at the Lookbeyondthered and not "pulsing lights turn me on".  I didn't see that mentioned, so I don't know if it means anything or not.

there's a covering on the combo box even when I'm logged in so I can't enter the code. I did all the steps along with you guys, was there something special we had to do to activate the box?
