Thank you for giving me the message from the phone number. As I don’t live in the US, I don’t really want to pay for such calls. Solved all but the Semaphore - Mondrian part by myself (kudos to the prime solvers).

Now to get the loot…

I’d like to point out: Where do the points point? And what’s the point?

i solved the sokoban type puzzle and uploaded the files to the mainframe - which takes me back to the same original briefing!!  Can't seem to get past this??

You have to click on the urgent button below the original

Click on the Brifings tab again.
You will see the new briefings

Why flip the image????
If you look at the overlay, top right bullseye has a fish and phone.  ie. Pier
Bottom left looks like a maple leaf  ie. Maple Lane.  When aligned to the transit map, the STAR is approx at Forrest Hills perhaps.  There appears to be a Starbucks at each point.

ibeforepre is what you type into the pad using the numbers that correspond to each letter on a phone pad.  If you don't know what letters correspond, simply pick up a phone and look at the keypad.  It works.

If you complete the block puzzle and click the upload button but still see the first briefing, look to the navigation to the left and click for the next briefing.

Keypad and puzzle maze done; first time completed with no help from forums.

Having said that, now stuck on images, and working my way through forums.  Hopefully, will find an answer here.

Genius faux-sites, Directorate.  Lots of wit and character put in these, not just the typical (yet still ingenious) flash gizmos.

I lost points after finishing this mission! WTF?

Anyway it was a really great mission!!!!!

You can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future, you have to trust in something, [...] because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well warm path and that will make all the difference.

I used overlay.jpg with the paint at the left of the paint figured in the stophere.jpg: I noticed that the sign on the right (at the bottom) can be overlayed if you revert the overlay.jpg image. it seems a map, but I don't know about what.
