Always one step behind
I wonder if there's any point in continuing to send these transmissions, if we're all going to die pretty soon regardless.  If humanity goes extinct, the GTI will be the least of our problems.  Right now the GTI is scrambling to figure out a way to deal with the Shivans as well as their own fleet losses, so I doubt they have time to get into too much trouble anyway.  I'll probably still keep an eye on them, if only out of habit.  Now if only I could dig myself out from this mountain of work they've given me...

The brass are having conniptions over a message that Intelligence recently intercepted from the Vasudans, and I managed to snag a hard copy.  I haven't had time to translate it yet, but anything that freaks out the GTI has got to be good news for us.  Provided it isn't caused by the Shivans, anyway.



I recommend against using Googleplex or any of the holonet-based translation services, just in case the GTI has its fingers where it shouldn't.  That's probably more paranoid than necessary, but you never know.

Re: Always one step behind
if only i could remember where i left that vasudan font D: EDIT: Nvm, seems like Roz did something useful and re-posted the font to avoid me the pain of digging it up, thanks.

i shall dig for it now... but i am certainly not translating it now... i guess i can wait for others to do the job and see what happens  :lol:

BTW: that attachment in Roz post is the vasudan font, geez dude, you could at least post what it is and stop being so cryptic about what you say.... (And yes, there was a bit of pun-ish intent in that last line and i know how lame that is)

Re: Always one step behind
nuclear1: thank you for transcribing and checking everything! I did not re-check everything, but the first word seems to be VASUUDAT, not VASUDAT.

I also tried to apply the vocabulary and grammar rules that we have so far. My result is very similar to that of MikeRoz (the differences are mainly because we seem to have hacked our scripts a little differently, but the net information is pretty much the same :) ):

Anyway, my current result is:

(ameliorative)RUT  make(imperative){you(singular)}.


So it looks like we still lack a real lot of words.
Except for the first line, "Vasudan Imperial Navy", I can't really make sense of anything.
(BTW if anyone wonders where that font file came from: It's pretty buried in the holonet; under Reference Information / Species / Vasudans, there is a link for a "Translation Service". Following it leads to an error message [seems like the translation service is dysfunctional], but there, we can "Update our Character Set".)

Updated on Dec 15 to incorporate latest Vasudan words up to "ji-muu'-chah".

One small observation: so far, every even post (2,4 and 6) has contained an obvious puzzle, while the other ones have "only" contained text (although at least one of them mentions information that seems to be important further down the line).

Let's see if this continues...

Looks like this is somewhat of a prolonged puzzle.  We keep plugging each day's new words in until something starts to make sense.  From the little we have to go on, I wonder if it's not an order to conduct some sort of secret test or study, what with the multiple instances of "to record."

(Also, it's about time someone went uber-nerdy and came up with a smattering of Vasudan language. Good on the team. :p)

@Mike sorry - probably my last post sounded pretty arrogant. Seems like your results were a lot better than mine - my program screwed up with various suffix-combinations and I only understood that reflexive pronouns can be be declined by looking at your output again with more attention and then going back to the language reference.
So basically - good job.

Anyway, I have also updated my output as well, fixing various weirdnesses and adding the latest word of the day.
It seems like there are two prefixes ("LI" and "RO") which are not mentioned in the language reference. I have marked them in my output.

What I meant was, you assumed I used a script. This assumes I have perl skills, which I don't. Mine was entirely a manual find/replace session with my favorite text editor.

Human intelligence, I see  ;).

After some attempts, I hacked together a few sed-scripts since I am also not too comfortable with perl.
I am attaching the stuff that I use for anybody who might be interested. The only thing that requires editing is vas_words.sed. A Unixoid computer is necessary to run it. I am using automated regular-expression-based replacements that are applied to the text. It required a bit of tweaking though to get the replacement order right for suffixes (should be quite ok now) and to try to guard against various false replacements.
I figured that I want to be prepared if they throw more Vasudan text at us :)

Concerning this:

Hmm...
  • one obvious candidate are the weird post dates. They have been around since the beginning and the title for the third post ("interesting times") explicitly hinted towards the oddness of these dates. I can't imagine that they would hang something like this in front of our noses and supply the solution so much later, but I have no idea what the point could be.

    One weird thing that I only noticed now is the following statement in "Interesting Times": "I've been getting a number of hits on those orders I uploaded on the 15th". The post to which this refers (Some more Highlights) has a post date of November 05, 1926, 02:34:55 AM.  This difference could really be a buried hint.

    It's hard to know when "Some more Highlights" was actually posted (actual time), The first replies are from Oct 25, but I don't think that our actual dates should have something to do with it.
  • Also, we don't know what Hades/Eumenides mean.

Also, the post titles could be hints. "On the destruction of a multitude" could imply that something has to be divided by a certain number. "Always one step behind" can also be a structural/mathematical hint". So far I have no idea where any of this could apply, though.

I guess we have to go back to the older messages and have to look for small oddities/discrepancies.

Edit: one more thing struck me -

The 5th post contains the following piece of text:
Quote
The first good thing is that it's a hell of a lot easier to get a date now that everyone's convinced the end of the world is just around the corner.
I don't know if this guy thinks about women in such a situation, but it can well be that he makes a point that with this message, it's become easy for the first time, to correlate a post to an actual event and therefore to an actual date, by checking the dates of the news feed.

So the date information that we have would look like this:

post date   post time                                       
10/10/26   17:07:28   Can anyone hear me   
26/10/26   18:54:58   Not as it appears   
30/10/26   18:18:24   Interesting Times   
05/11/26   02:34:55   Some more Highlights   
09/11/26   11:02:32   On the destruction of a Multidude       News about this event: February 31/March 1 2335 (probably Marc 1, because this is when they were finished)
16/11/26   01:39:14   Always one Step behind

The dates have been bugging me too. Almost like we're overflowing the Unix epoch, except then it would be 1970, not 1926. If only I had my own SMF to play around with.

I don't see how the post times could have more than academic interest, unless there's a mathematical pattern of some sort we can use to unlock something else.

Edit: New word in the VWorD, updated my post. It's not one in the letter, unforunately.

Maybe it's just a matter of correlating the post dates to the events in the FS1 timeline, which I think someone talked about doing in another thread.  If we can figure out when certain news posts on the Holonet went up, maybe we can get an idea of what's going on with Aadarsh's calendar.

True, the times could also be manipulated for a certain reason.

Well, when according to our calendar, the news went up on the holonet might be hard to know. I posted the only obvious connection I can see between a post and a holonet news:
09/11/26   11:02:32   On the destruction of a Multidude <-->  Holonet news from February 31/March 1 2335

If this relationship is extrapolated in a linear manner, then this would give the following dates:
10/10/26   17:07:28   Can anyone hear me                            Jan     30 2335 (16 days before next post)
26/10/26   18:54:58   Not as it appears                                   Feb.   15 2335 (4 days before next post)

Sadly, I don't see where this should lead us.
Also, I don't know if there exists any date information (e.g. in the Hard-Light Wiki) that one could try to correlate to these dates with.

Jan 30 is a bit of a funny date, because this is the date when the Einstein's mission would have regularly ended. Its mission briefing - both the official as well as the secret one - start on January 1 2335 and the duration of this mission is planned as 30 days.

It could well be though that the dates (and times) are just numbers that have to be used in a certain way. I just don't have a good idea where and how.

Btw. I find the idea of using HERODOT-AH as Vasudan word for "History" a pretty neat idea  :D
