something isn't on the up and up since he has given his oppentents if he really has any plenty of time to set up a way to shut those web sites down. It will be interesting to see what is posted tonight though.

Its a hoax, if its so important and he needs the world to see them, while he's on the run, why would he wait this long to post them on March 8th, 2003.... and I highly doubt if the photo's were so important, whoever wouldn't chunk the camera off a cliff with the film in it..

Oh well, will be interesting what he posts though.

I checked that site out last night and I just don't understand what this guy is trying to say. He says theres ships and stuff in the pictures and I don't see anything.

There is one page on his site that describes when he was on his computer and started searching around for what he saw in the pictures. Its so funny. I can't find the link but he describes it like this. He is sitting at his computer doing a search for all the things that he saw in his pictures. Suddenly, the mouse goes out of control and his hard drive starts to make a wierd clicking noise. His computer has been taken over! He picks up the phone line and hears someone hang up the phone. He has been cracked!

I just found the computer being cracked part very funny.

Yeah i saw that too, w/ opera. "Connect Infobahn Australia is an Australian ISP providing home users, small and large businesses and government departments total internet solutions."

Weird. That is the biggest waste of time ever. I remember this site from LNO about 5 months ago but now its the 8th and the results are RETARDED.

The guy is a psycho. Actually he's smart. He probably owns the company and has attracted hundreds if not thousands of people like us there. "Space ship"...:rolleyes: He's obviously not that good w/ Photoshop either. I could have made something MUCH more realistic than that. :D

I thought the pictures looked like they were taken in a goldfish bowl...

After all these months of tepid anticipation and apathetic concern over the wanker who created the lackluster site, we find out that we must wait for another arduously mediocre month to find out the "Truth" about the whole affair! If I was a complete idiot and believed in this crap, I'd be pissed. But since I do have two brain cells to strike together, I'm not. :)

Not really on the subject, but I wonder if this post would get the same replies on a seperate forum. I've been looking through some other forums(related or not realted to technology at all) and I have yet to find one with people as intelligent as this one. Just a thought.

I've been following it when ever someone posts a link & brings it back into attention.

Kinda interesting, wether it's real or not.

If it's not real, it's funny as hell, and sad at the same time since he sure has a big following :D
