(UUNN HQ) The recent release of an unusual audio file by Dr. Thane Dannewar has created a small flurry of offers by companies making promises to “find waldo” . . . for a fee.
According to Dr. Dannewar, overtures have been made by Ayabar Labs, Dorator Tech, Lexxor Intelligence and the SET Group. “I find it pretty disgusting,” said Dannewar. “I went looking for group problem-solving and all I got is group profit-seeking. If they want to help — well I released the file. Go ahead and help. There won’t be any contracts.”
To date, the only analysis of the audio has been offered by data recover expert Jalil Aq’Tamm who felt the issue was one of “deep sound” — but had not been able to decode any potential underlying datasteam. Another entity who refused to provide a name suggested they were focusing on a “spread spectrum” analysis.
Subspace Transceiver Repaired Pilots finally rallied to repair the subspace transceiver in The Narrow Canal, and Solrain pilots are once again happily receiving KTRI broadcasts. There is still no word on how the transceiver was damaged in the first place.
Octs Debate DSS History The Octavius Emperors from Ares Prime and Martius seem to be having a dispute about the historical fragment recently found on a DSS. What is being lost in the whole “whose sword is bigger” debate is the fact that this thing might be one of the oldest pieces of history we have found to-date and may even hint at our roots.

(Octavius Core Station) Emperor Venticus has released a statement regarding the DSS that was deciphered roughly two weeks ago, that appeared to refer to early Octavius.
It gratifies us that another bit of the great history of Octavius has been unveiled. The story fragment on the DSS deciphered by pilot Nafcon tells a story of our very earliest days – around 2700 BT. While we have no records of the admiral mentioned in this text or the “8th Expedition” – what appears to be clear is that this admiral was instrumental in establishing the beginning of our empire, and he did it here … on Ares Prime. Our historians believe that pieces of this story may have actually contributed to one of our greatest legends – the legend of the Golden Emperor.
We have already begun negotiations with Dorator Tech to be provided access to any further, related information it may find. We encourage pilots to search Octavius Shore for DSS, since this is where this particular find was made.
Yes, I’m late this week. It has been a slow news week and I was HOPING something interesting would happen. But alas …
Dorator Signs DSS Agreement with Hyperial In the not-at-all-surprising category, Dorator Tecnologies R&D signed an agreement with Hyperial late last week, where Dorator will be receiving all DSS and UCs sold by pilots to Hyperial station. Dorator calls it a win-win since Hyperial was not using the artifacts for anything and Dorator will get them for a very attractive price.
Engineers Quietly Leave Amananth With absolutely no fanfare (and by this I mean they sneaked out), the multi-corporate team that had been working at Amananth to help figure out how to repair the Antiflux CP, has disbanded and been transported back to their respective home spaces. TRI Corporation officials insist that this does not mean they are giving up. They simply felt that it was not necessary to be on-site at this point — an felt the team needed to refresh and reboot.

Engineers Report “No Answers” on Antiflux Factory Well we finally received a report from the Multi-corporate Engineering Team at Amananth — and the news was not awesome. While the fact that the engineers are still puzzled after trying a couple of different approaches is a bit concerning, the other part of the report was an absolute BOMB: “. . . The explosions on Amananth station apparently destroyed all of the backup data on the Antiflux systems and hardware, and DPDQ does not seem willing or able to reproduce it. . . .”
So that means, if we can’t figure out a way to fix this — no more Antiflux! Do you think MAYBE we need to throw some more resources at this problem?
Dorator shares a “Freebie” We’ve known for a while now that Dorator was going into the DSS business. Over the last 10 days they’ve kicked things off with two DSS purchasing events, and then just a day after the second event, they publicly released the first dataset. Continue reading →
Pilot Nafcon was the first to submit a decryption of the DSS code release yesterday by Dorator.
“Just after the Establishment of the colony on Ares in 4093, Adm. Ryne Patten, leading the 8th Expedition, has us a…. control the military …. abolish the colony assembly and declare emperor Octavius. Patten was saying: “The Eight Expedition …. from our little planet ……… a backwater. Our ancestors were pioneers, conquering a new world. WE are the pioneers living that spirit of Ares. We are not scientist or philosoph-men………children of the warrior. Though we are far from home it is the warrior blood that drives us.
.. no official word from the Governors on Martius, but sou ….at it is … security forces on high Alert — even though….back from Ares w …..ake”
(Hyperial Station) Just a day after completing its first public DSS collection efforts, Dorator Technologies R&D is releasing the decryption of one of its DSS.
“First let me say that we are not in the business of doing data recovery and decryption for free,” said Malkev Dorator II, Sr. Vice President of Operations. “We have some very big clients willing to pay very well for our services. But we are willing to do contract work of all types — for individuals, squads, organizations, factions — even other corporations. Continue reading →
