With Jojo’s Word of the Day, you usually check the source code of the HTML document to uncover the puzzle to solve. Looking at the end of line 3 in the source code
Looking at a frequency table for the characters does not provide much help:
Number of Hits
Looks like we’ll need to find what these letters correspond to before proceeding further.
What doesn’t work is breaking up the string into pairs and trying to reverse engineer a solution:
BK BT LT YT KL KT ML LL KT LT KF AT FO YK
This technique will be fully introduced in a tutorial in the near future. In the mean time, assuming the pairs follow a pattern, KT ML KK KT (or TK LL LM TK) would correspond to the keyword part of the passcode, BK YT KF FO (or KY TL TY TB) would correspond to numbers. Unfortunately this will not work.
Starting in mid June 2014, JoJo’s Word of the Day codes usually follow a theme for about a week and this week the theme is space (specifically stars/Messier Objects). Doing a search for astronomy and individual letters:
stars "A" "B" "F" "K" "L" "M" "O" "T" "Y"
(individual letters are in quotation marks to prevent search engines from combining them)
The results should indicate Stellar classification and as an example, we will be using the Wikipedia entry:
As with the previous walkthrough, each line can be interpreted as individual data points in a data set. Searching them individually will not be helpful but searching multiple terms together can guide us to a solution. Try looking up: 6715 2682 1068 4569 in your favourite search engine.
Depending on the search engine, you’ll likely find results that refer to Messier objects. Starting in mid June 2014, JoJo’s Word of the Day codes usually follow a theme for about a week and the week we’re looking at deals with space.
Round 2 of #Helios was a very close battle between the two factions with only 1.6 points difference before factoring in the cell scores showing that in this series, every portal in every city will count.
Both Teams won 3 Additional Cells each but with Bangkok being the Volatile, the Enlightened got the boost.
The battle was fierce in San Diego with the Resistance covering the city with a field contributing 131 points to their score but the Enlightened won by controlling most of the portals (R:99 – E:148) and volatile portals (R:6 – E:14)
In Boston, the Enlightened had a covering field for the first 2 measurements earning them 33.6 points but when the field came down, their score was significantly boosted with 27 links established earning them 81 points. The bulk of the resistance’s score came from controlling the Volatile Portals (R:130 pts – E:60 pts)
In Philadelphia, The Resistance won almost all scoring categories except for portals in the 3rd measurement where the Enlightened tried to fight back.
Stay tuned for continued coverage of the #Helios Anomaly series.
Good afternoon, Agents and Investigators! My name is Mustafa Said and welcome back to This Week in Niantic History.
So let’s begin with what was revealed on July 21st, 2013:
It was a draft of a research project that Carrie Campbell, now in Hamburg, had attempted to begin at the Niantic Project. She believes that the Shaper Glyphs might have been secretly part of human history…
How it ties into the story: The double-blind Glyph study might have something to do with her being in Hamburg as well as her analysis of the Vision Journal…
On July 22nd, 2013, another document came to light:
It was the second page of Carrie’s Vision Journal. H. Richard Loeb believes that the pages, slowly leaking from an unknown source, might hold the keys to understanding the Shaper Glyphs…
On July 23rd, 2013, another document was leaked:
It was the third page of Carrie’s Vision Journal. Loeb asks the community about the effects of Shaping through XM throughout the course of human history: While today’s Journal page will certainly require much thought, I was particularly struck by the idea of ‘Shaping’ and what that might mean, not just today, but across time. My question today is, how might ‘Shaping’ have affected us across time? What major figures in our past may have been Shaped, and how might this have affected the today we exist in now? See the thread here at https://plus.google.com/105211554081025512763/posts/fJasEmLkgNS for the results.
On July 24th, 2013, another Vision Journal Page was leaked:
Along with it, a message from the unknown source that sent them to Loeb: The Last of the first… Loeb and the community, now armed with all of the pages, asks the community for them to develop a solid hypothesis on the nature of the Vision Journal and how they relate to the Glyphs. See the thread here for the dialogue: https://plus.google.com/+NianticProject/posts/eL7EMHFNPMX
And finally, on July 25th, 2013, the eighteenth installment of the Ingress Report was released to the public:
In the episode, Susanna Moyer talks about the upcoming Operation Minotaur on August 3rd, a series of Enlightened and Resistance operations top the Mind Unit score to 1 billion, Agents from both factions begin to decode and unravel the first wave of Shaper Glyphs, rumors of new comics by Tycho at Comic-Con surface and new updates of the Ingress Scanner begin to activate.
What secrets will the Vision Journal Pages reveal? What are the stakes of Operation Minotaur?
As always, tune into DeCode Ingress to see what happened next in Niantic History!
The battle has begun to defeat Devra’s Portal virus which increased the natural decay rate of portals.
What is the Devra Portal Virus?
During an episode of the Ingress Report, Devra Bogdanovich unleashes a Portal Virus that increased the portal decay rate from 15% a day to 34%.
How can the Devra Portal Virus be stopped?
From the research of Martin Schubert, it was determined that if the combined (Enlightened / Resistance) Global MU Level is above 700 Million at the end of the first Helios anomaly, it may return the decay rate back to 15%.
What is #TealOrNoDeal?
#TealOrNoDeal is a global cross faction effort to build alternating layered fields to hit the 700 Million Global MU required to stop the virus. If you’d like us to share the SitReps ofyour Operations, share the post on Google+ with the hashtags #DecodeIngress and #TealOrNoDeal
