Lost University info post  
To my regular FL - ignore this post, it relates to Lost University. Will be back later today.

Let's just say that, through happenstance, I came by a source for Lost University. Sort of the LU version of Deep Throat, I guess. We'll call them Mister Echo (yes I know the character is Eko, I was not told this by a Nigerian guy, or an apparition). It was also suggested to me that I pass some information on, without revealing anything about Mister Echo. So don't ask me, because I won't tell you. You can pretend he was dressed in black with a fedora and stood in the shadows of a dark parking garage if you like. Anyway Mister Echo suggested to me that I see whether there was anyone I could email. "Like Vincent."

Okay, I thought, I'll email a fictional labrador, that's a really weird idea, but hey, this is LOST. Before sending anything out, I did a fairly exhaustive search of anyone and anything I could think of related to the show; I didn't keep a list, but I tried the main characters, the minor ones, Dharma staff, and a bunch of people who've been dead since season 1 and 2, as well as ALL the Dharma Stations. Got me all worked up seeing them come back live; such a nerd. These are the addresses which have accounts associated with them.

AUTO-REPLY MESSAGES (messages sent Dec. 19th)
I did NOT receive an auto-reply from Vincent, but never got anything else either. As far as I know, the content of my messages wasn't relevant, but I obviously can't say for sure. (Was feeling weird and wrote them real emails :P )

Tom:
Hey, you've reached Tom at the LOST University Tutoring Center. I've been pretty busy getting things ready for my next session amongst other things I've been working on. It may take a while for me to get back to you again.

To be honest I've been working on some really interesting plans I want to use to exp

(MESSAGE WAS CUT OFF, do not know if this was on purpose or not.)

Hurley:
Thanks for emailing me dude. I'm currently traveling, but will be back soon.

Jacob:
I am currently off campus, but will periodically checking this email. I look forward to staying in touch with you in the future.

Dan:
I knew you were going to email me, because you told me 10 years from now.
(just about died laughing)

Smokey:
Tikka Tikka Tikka!

MMWWWWWWRRRRRROOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Regards,

Smokey

Penny:

The Numbers:

This email is for authorized users only.

SINCE DEC 19th I have only re-emailed Hurley - I have not received any reply, auto or otherwise, so far. But they did NOT bounce. Honestly, I was not told what to do with these accounts; whether they are a fun and random Easter Egg, or something of importance to LU, I don't know. Maybe I didn't say the secret word in the emails. Will ponder this and try some of the others again later tonight.

THE DEAN'S LIST
I am also passing along the first five pages of the Dean's List as I see them on my LU, as of today. I am at the top of my page, and cannot scroll backwards to see if there are any previous pages. I finished a course early on the first day, so it's probable I was early; though I doubt I was first. Anyway, since I'd personally like to know what number I am (lol, competitive much?), I'm posting this so we can compare notes. Please be aware there are likely errors in the user names - really hard to read on my TV. There were some other people there the first few days - I know there was a Frogurt, but they must have fallen off by not maintaining their GPA. (Man, even our ARGs are brutal!)

This is the first FIVE pages of FIFTEEN. x.x

LOST U
Great work Anne! Thanks for putting it together.

Damon was just on Facebook chat for a few minutes so I asked about the Davie class. He signed off without answering me :( Still no word from the DVD production guy I emailed earlier today.

I'm not sure if you saw my LOSTArg comment from a few threads ago when you posted the pictures link. I posted a couple of your pictures to my Facebook album since I am in them, and gave you credit. Hope it's okay :)

Re: LOST U
Ohh, I didn't know he was on Facebook too. I just added him.

Re: LOST U
Damon probably doesn't know XD That's a hilarious mental image, actually, Lost cast or crew swearing at their Blu-Ray cause they can't get in.

And yes I did see it, I replied I think but anyway! No problem :)

hi
I was going to try and find you later on this very subject. Give me a minute to read and digest! Thank you for doing this. I need to get a few more in here as well. - Lotto

Re: hi
Anything you have to add I can edit :)
beesknees7beesknees7 on January 7th, 2010 11:35 pm (UTC)
Those emails are HILARIOUS!

It's funny, the list that you're at the top of, is the list that I'm at the top of when I log in on my account. I found it funny that someone from LostARGs was also on it (LotteryTicket). And then I can scroll up and see the list with Maven & reverendmilo but none of the other screens. I finished all my exams today and have a sweet 4.0 GPA. :D

I think we're at the point where DeepThroat should step it up a notch and drop another hint. :O We're a week away from the second semester!
あやかayakasan on January 8th, 2010 03:34 am (UTC)
Yeah I'm quite sure that you are always at the top if it's your account. Hmm, maybe there's no way to figure out how we fall on the list . . . do you see your name on mine?

Anyway we have been told that it's the first 108 people to GRADUATE that count (I assume you have to stay on the Dean's List to do so, but don't know).

It would be fabulous if Mister Echo showed up and gave us another hint D: I don't have a way to contact though. No X taped on the window trick.
beesknees7beesknees7 on January 8th, 2010 11:41 am (UTC)
I figured it was graduation that counted. God, I hope there are no weird tricks to "applying" for graduation. I'm itching for something cool to hang on my wall since I am print-less. :/

I'm trying the email thing myself now. I'll let you know if anything interesting happens.
beesknees7beesknees7 on January 8th, 2010 12:16 pm (UTC)
ok, so far I got the same cut off message from Tom & this from 4815162342@lostuniversity.org:
"This email is for authorized users only.

Lost University Security"

beesknees7beesknees7 on January 8th, 2010 03:00 pm (UTC)
omg lmao. just got this from penny@lostuniversity.org

"NOT PENNY'S EMAIL"

also got the same responses as you from jacob, vincent, hurley, smokey, and faraday
あやかayakasan on January 10th, 2010 01:54 am (UTC)
Yay print-less club lol. Well we still got to / get to play the game.

Man I shouldn't have been trying this late at night, swore I checked Penny. Wonder if there's any chance it WASN'T active then but is now? Maybe if we keep emailing they put up new addresses? lol probably not.

Wave
This is prefect use for Wave. I can walk you through, not hard. That way we can live edit as we discover things. Let me know and will send invitations as needed. I have hand full of LU students that would be good additions

The cut off message is part of the breach in security from the Dec. 8 LU video, the second video gives 02/2009 date instead of 12/09, youtube LotteryTicket1 to watch

We may want to consider a tracking dates.

I was told vincent and to call all telephone numbers

What subject did you put in e-mail. Do you think something specific in subject line would be trigger?

Again, I do think there is much more behind LU than getting diploma after G88 discussions.

But I suppose our first job is to get into Faraday class. McTaggert recently interviewed for ABC news and article posted somewhere. And, then there is the Mr. Cluck's video running in place of the 4th tutorial. I don't think this is a mistake as reported by some. Hurley exposes t-shirt for brief space with letter MJC, HJC or KJC under the artwork. I can't identify the shirt, but the very large letters seem add-on. Ads for Mr. Cluck's created for Australia and CA or HI.

Or, has playing some weird ARG game with the clues that lead to nowhere warped my mind.

Re: Wave
Wave doesn't work terribly well on my computer - but I'm willing to give it another go.

I don't think anyone has figured out password for the SDCC card phone #. That may well be significant.

I think it might be useful to post full content of emails/subject lines. Maybe email has to be specifically and solely about Davies course - or maybe what's to be found via email has NOTHING to do with Davies. (Seeming more likely.)

I was pretty sure it was either MJC or WJC; have had no luck with either. Though I think that MJC has one connection I can think of ;) The Mr. Cluck's commercial is the only video footage that ran at SDCC that I think had much of anything to do with S6; the rest was just messing around. There was one other clip maybe gah I can't remember it. Mysteries of the Universe I think.

ZERO chance that clip was a mistake.

Personally I don't think we would have been getting hints dropped at us if it was nothing. If it was just for easter eggs, that makes sense; but Vincent is the one addy that gives no reply! So we must not be saying the right thing.

Re: Wave
OK, Wave is up, and I will start editing. However, I need wave names, or let me know if you need invite - Lottery Ticket

Re: Wave
I think it might be useful to post full content of emails/subject lines.
I used the exact same message for every thing I sent out.
Subject: Namaste
Body: I was wondering if you had any tips on accessing the PHY 301 seminar over at Lost U this semester.

and I got the same messages as you. I think it's funny that they put this up the same day we discussed it at LostARGs.

Also, I got a reply from Vincent but nothing back when I replied to his email. I thought you'd posted that one which is why I didn't mention it.
"Woof! Bark! Woof ... Woof"
^I pulled source and everything but couldn't find any significance.

Diploma
So I just "graduated" with 22 units. I've never seen anything official about the diploma. Was it announced somewhere?

beesknees7beesknees7 on January 15th, 2010 01:00 pm (UTC)
Re: Diploma
It was in all the press releases about Lost U.
I'm super bummed because I tried to enroll last night but couldn't, and I guess it was because I booted it up before midnight instead of after. I finished this morning but probably too late for the signed diploma. So now I'll be print-less AND diploma-less. =/
