    There is this image
    368_600.png
    386_600.png: "HSAB" as the title


    And it has a bunch of nixCraft: Linux Tips, Hacks, Tutorials, And Ideas In Blog Format stuff on there highlighted. It i a Linux site, and well a linux shell prompt.

    They have some very familiar looking vBullitin forums on that site. But you need to login to search. So I stopped for the moment.

    I didn't try to get into the FTP part of that site.

    Maybe the user name is 'JulieteWatthouse' or similar, and her password is HSAB. Or maybe it is in her text. A quick autokey solution didn't work for me.

    Well the cyberciti.biz took me to their forum:
    nixCraft Linux / UNIX / Shell Scripting Forum
    The screencap showed username : password, so I tried that and it worked as a login on the forum?!

    Hmm, looks like 'username' ID was created in 2008 and not used since.
    Probably a random coincidence that it worked.

    More poking around will need to wait until after lunch.

    I don't know if it is noteworthy or not but HSAB is BASH (one of the Linux consoles) backwards

    Decrypted (it's a simple substitution cipher):

    From overworking the previous clue I got my hands on some cool tools, as I mentioned in the other thread one of them is a free software called CrypTool. I did an auto analysis and it came up with some suggestions based on frequency analysis and checking against a large English dictionary, and I think also analysis of di- and tri-grams (common 2 and 3 letter words). Then I just had to do some manual analysis for the rest of the letter substitutions:

    Bah! Looking at the key now it's just the alphabet reversed: ZYXWVUTSRQPONMLKJIHGFEDCBA

    So I guess Teslive is a Sturgis like Tesla rally on the coast near an almond orchard?

    Yes, not impossible that this is something they're building up to. As pointed out by TEG earlier the countdown ends the same week-end as the ReFuel races are held.

    I bet they roll out a supercharge network coast to coast for this too. Otherwise how will my Tesla get there?

    Image is from here:

    Yep, sure seems like it! I guess the idea was just to show a random example of some "bash shell", and then when we see that the name is "hsab" we realize that the decrypt alphabet is just the alphabet in reverse. The content of that screen cap (other than the bash shell prompts) is probably all irrelevant to us.

    Ah all that work!

    This URL decoded it automatically!

    The HSAB reference is BASH... As in bash shell... also, as in AtBash cipher :)

    Glad your e-watch is working Nick. Ghe Time Management Clock is key to getting all of us in sync. We're taking Sturgis here. I understand you are exhausted. Get some rest and when its safe to move again you should stop by to see Nobel Klinamen. He will straighten you out on the importance of this. I mean, how cool will it be to have a few hundred teslas and their owners in one place?


    Safe to move... Maybe meaning freshly charged up?
    I don't know this Nobel Klinamen character. Should that be decoded somehow? What could that stand for? (Or maybe I missed it in another post)

    Agree. A light sightseeing tour through those servers and related servers did not yield anything relevant to Teslive. Was still fun. As all Tesla folks and pilots know, most of the time the enjoyment is from the journey, not the destination.

    Perhaps, Al Gore Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers Although, I would expect Nobel Kleinman, if that were the case.

    I think there are plans on putting supercharges on the bridge. I think I saw them somewhere. :biggrin:

    Moved Hawaii post to Hawaii Tesla Owners.

    I started to search for Nobel Klinamen and rest or sleep and didn't find much of any use.
    one of the links I found in my search was Veengle nothing of use here. on a whim I typed Tesla and came up with this video...


    I think the Mechanations are getting to me...
    Matybe this is the Antene they are building...
