Leaked E-mails:2003

From Perplex City Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

On Wednesday 16th November 2005, Perplex City players who had completed the set of four blue hex cards were sent an e-mail congratulating them from the Academy.

However, it seems that the Academy's e-mail system managed to leak some internal e-mails at the bottom of these e-mails sent out to players. Each player so far has received a different e-mail fragment. They are arranged below in date order.

The top portion of the e-mail reads:

"Dear [player name],

Congratulations, you've solved a set of four Perplex City cards. We've rewarded you by doubling your points for each of the cards in the set.

Your Perplex Point total is now [total]. You have solved [x] cards. We in Perplex City would like to thank you for your continued dedication to our cause. With your help, we are certain that the Receda Cube will be found and returned safely.

Sincerely,
The Puzzle Scribe Team

Perplex City Academy"

Then follows an error code:

"f8080:xx95034
internal error academail
criticalerror 420
error-authconflict
error-redirect
error-handover
error-output

fatal-close"

From 20th December 2005 it appears as if some of these emails have been sent again, although at this time they don't appear to be related to the actual solving of a set (i.e. although the email refers to solving a set, no card was solved at the time the email was sent). The resent email has an additional header at the start of the mail as follows.

Failure in Centre for Reality Research Sandbox Mail Transport Daemon (daemon
subprocess 3ea5). Mind Candy unavailable. Final resend attempt follows.


The initial page has become very very long. To help curb that, we are now sorting by year. Please see the appropriate page, linked below for other pages of emails. It would appear newer emails are being recieved in progression with waves of cards and major events, so (in theory) the newest emails should be chronologically sorted, to the bottom of the original Leaked E-mails page.


2003 E-mails

Please post your leaked e-mail here, in chronological order. Feel free to add relative links to topics as you see fit.

Lord, that was a difficult meeting.

Ah, yes. Our dear Professor Ekeba can become a little... agitated.

I can't say that Prof Kiteway was being particularly reasonable.

There's a history there, you know. They've been arguing about that issue for years.

So why won't he just allow her to do her Cube research then? It seems a perfectly sensible request - she's head of Natural Sciences, one would have thought it was her field of expertise.

What do you mean?

Just that he has his own research interests and perhaps doesn't want anyone else to encroach on them.

Oh. Right. Heh. Not too sinister then... I thought she might have had some actual reason for that threat to steal the thing.

(blank subject) Super Sneaky!

I -can't-. You have to realise that I'm in a very senior position here. I can't always be available.

As you well know, there are those who are attached to our cause who are more senior than you. They know where their true allegiance lies. Make your excuses and leave the meeting.
