I'm too far away, but I'll call my buddy who's (barely) going to school in Philly and see if he can't show up for it.

We don't get the iPhone in Ireland, either.  ):  Even although the provider for the UK iPhone has a large Irish coverage, too.  Silly Apple.

There hasn't been any talk about what to do with "the package" once you get it.  I would suggest a quick upload to a easy file-sharing site.  (IE Rapidshare.com, if under 100Mb)  If there are multiple files copy to HD and Right-click to archive first. 

Community problem solving seems to be key.  Look forward to hearing the good news.

Did I miss the part where it was specifically stated that a package would change hands? I read nothing about a package in the message from Monique. Not saying there won't be, just wondering where we got that.

I think it was assumed because of the puzzle pieces that started the first heist.

Maybe we should divert our attention to planing out how we shall proceed after the meeting.

We know we should get some form of information from this "Source"

     • If it's something physical, take a photo and post it online.  Those who are graphic savvy should then digest it as far as they can go.

     • If it's a word puzzle, then let's have our scholars take a crack at it.

And something I just thought of, be aware that we might again have to take this heist off-line.  We should start thinking about that as an option in the future as well.

Sound off everyone.  I'm just thinking out loud here.  It's a nice distraction from work...

Yeah you can say that again smile... I'll be checking in to see what happened and then tomorrow be on my best to waste the workday on this heist ... sure hope it's not over by then. (It's 22.04 my time so....)

PS. Yes the Heist should expand outside the US.. How about Lapland here in Finland smile. Some proper 20km cross-country skiing to see a guy on top of some mountain (they're not actually mountains).. and the upload the "package" online on you mobile or satellite ... lol.

A four digit code?  They seem to like them around here.  Also makes me think of a certain famous song that drove phone companies nuts.

He said "a 5309" so I was wondering if that was some sort of object.

I guess we'll just have to wait until the USB is plugged in.
