(UUNN HQ) DSS expert Jalil Aq’tamm announced last week that he had recovered an especially large, clean dataset from a DSS3 that he believed to contain some sort of media file. Within hours, his unofficial partner, Hammer-BS, had decrypted that file and determined it to be an image. The issue was that the image just did not make a lot of sense.
The slightly-distorted image was a red imprint with the numeral “3” in each of the corners, and a horn at the center of an oveal with words surrounding it. According to Hammer-BS it was some sort of very ancient currency used specifically to procure communication services.
After the “DSS Duo” puzzled over the image code for another day, they made the shocking announcement that there was another image hidden within the red-currency image — and this image was even more cryptic. Some have suggested it could be a map. Others suggest it’s another code.
“There was no corruption at all in this one,” said Aq’tamm, “which is why I assumed it was something fairly recent — within the past 50 years.” He then went on to say, “The dataset was in octal, which we have seen before in DSS that were from pre-collapse … that that’s contrary to the idea that this was recent.”
