So, iBeforePre is just a blank number pad, tried a few random sequences but got no feedback thus far. No evidence otherwise except in the source

Could it be something HTML related? "i" and "pre" are both valid HTML codes.

Just a thought, it didn't seem to work on firefox but it did in safari. Either that or you have to do it quickly enough 4233673773 that's the sequence if it was a phone.

It looks like you have to cover the three dots with the blocks. I can't see how, it looks like if you push a block to the edge, there is no way to get it off the edge.

Well, that was the first part of any mission that I was able to successfully complete entirely on my own.
Now I'm on the next part, with the two images, and I'm utterly dumbfounded.

Any ideas?

Correct. You're "driving" a little plow or forklift. You push the white blocks to cover the red.

Anyone have any headway with the two new images? The second image looks like it needs to be put on a map to reveal a location, but what map? The info in the first image doesn't seem to turn up anything.

I'm stumped at the images as well. They have interesting file names though. The first one is called stophere.jpg, the bottom one is overlay.jpg. So I'm guessing the bottom one must be a "decoder" of some sort.

The image names look meaningful: "stophere" and "overlay". Is the first one a map of some sort?
