    Well if the "jsharman" isn't supposed to be used for the final image, what the hell is it supposed to be for?

    Maybe we need both versions of the bathysphere? Would combining the numbers from all change the meaning? I have no idea how the decoding works.

    Speaking of passwords, "jsharman" sounds like a username, and "vein" could be a password. Could someone with access to the aperture login page confirm/deny this?

    A lot of letters are missing from that Amnesia thing

    M, S, R, C, V, Y, I, U, D, K, G, J, A, N, T, X, Q, and L are the only letters out of the entire thing (I might have missed one or two somewhere.)

    not sure if I'm late, but whatever I'm sure most people forgot about this anyway

    What the decoding actually says:

    i released 'kick
    it' ahead
    of schedule.
    that was a test.
    my goal is
    to emancipate
    something else
    early. but
    they're on to me.

    the system is
    in lockdown.
    i still have
    access to thirteen
    off-site
    chambers and
    am installing
    a test in each
    one. I am

    going to need a
    lot more test
    subjects to move
    forward. Waiting
    and am
    expecting
    immediate compliance.
