We have contact from the mole:

I have been attempting to ring you in Berlin for the last twenty minutes with no success.  I see that this is another failure to communicate on your part.  You are supposedly the best, I expect you to act like it.

I will provide you with a fallback plan just this once.  Several weeks ago I provided you with a cellular telephone.  I will call it at 21:00 ET.  I will only ring it once.  Do not fail me again.

It was pretty short notice for the folks in germany, especially if you un-installed the HeistAgent because it was doing flaky things to your system.  I think the original message was posted around 05:00 UTC, which I think works out to about 6AM in Berlin.  I can see how that might not be enough time for people that work for a living. :-)

Cheers,

I couldn't reach a friend in Berlin either.

If it would've been in Stuttgart I could have reached the call.

I just returned from work and got the info about the phonecall in Berlin - Kurfürstendamm - but its now 15:24 - maybe the fallback plan can be altered and the call can be postponed to 16:00 ?
It would be possible for me to get there in 10 minutes...

greetings from Berlin !

The only way I'd be able to get a hold of him is through the IRC and I don't know if he'll be on today or not.

Assuming it's a macheister it might be worth more than one person knowing who it is in case anyone sees him on IRC/forums/etc...

I don't have his forum user name.  His IRC name is mav728.  I'll be there keeping tabs but help is always welcomed.

Sehr witzig. Aber vielleicht kann der Agent aus BER ja auch ein bischen später. Ist ja erstmal die Frage, ob Mr. Mole da noch mal anrufen will/wird. Ich denke ja nicht, so dass man mal wieder auf unsere Freunde aus den USA bauen muss. Gelle. Gruß aus FRA

Very funny. But perhaps the agent from BER even a bit later. If yes to the first question, whether because Mr. Mole will again call /. I do not think so, so you once again to our friends from the United States must build. Gelle. Greetings from FRA

(Very funny. But maybe the agent from Berlin can come a little later. The first question would be if Mr. Mole would call there again. I don't think so, guess we have to rely on our US friends there again. Right. Greetings from FRA)

Of course, if our German Agent could be there later.. but you don't know that either. Wonder what happens if the mole calls the cellphone and noone answers tongue

Warbrain,

You said that you gave the phone to mav728. Assuming that he is in the Chicago area, we have until 20:00 (8 pm) to get in touch with him and alert him to the incoming call.

How does this sound, ideola, our moderator misplaces an important game piece and puts us all "in the dark" regarding 1 of 4 upcoming clues. Later when the 3 other clues come in and are shared, who might just be the only person who has the 4th clue? At this point I'm not sure we, or the Directorate, can trust one of our moderators, who has alreaady shown that he is reluctant to share info.

Monique, be careful!!

I don't have it.  He said he wanted it so I let him take it.  Leave me out of this.  I'm doing what I can to see if we can get a hold of him.

Heh, maybe Berlin is just an indication of people's interest in MacHeist after some recent events?

Moderators calling customers thieves and whores, certain people hogging clues and not sharing, and who can forget the IRC issues.

Nobody showed up in Berlin to participate, now there's a shocker!

Or maybe it's the fact that the ARG portions aren't really all that enjoyable?

Hey Directorate, suggest that you use moderators who are enjoying what they're doing, and not screwing around with it for the rest, some of whom enjoy the ARG portions.

How am I screwing around with it for the rest?  He wanted the phone thinking that it wasn't going to be used again and that it was his souvenir.  Sorry that the Berlin members didn't come through, but we expected that the phone was done.

There's no way that it could have been known that a cheapo cell phone would be needed for a future mission contingency plan. Let's be reasonable before we starte bashing other folks.

Warbrain:  "we expected" - OK, so now it's "we" - who is "we"  I don't remember being asked about what to do with that phone.

Either it is a "WE" in this heist, or it's not. Sure it takes more time to communicate back and forth, but we wouldn't be here if we didn't have time.

Again, "we" are expecting 3 clues later today; the 4th clue is available to the person who has the phone; the last "we" person to have that phone was you, who has a blemished heist record and trust issues. You want "we" to think differently, it's up to you.

That is incorrect. He wasn't the one who kept the phone (which, again, was an arbitrary keepsake after the Philly ARG heist anyway). The WE he spoke of was the Philly heist team.

Calm down, buddy. You're not helping.
