The EYE Am Nearby Video lead to the discovery of the E.Y.E. Blogger Account, which at the time included a single post entitled "?". The post comprised a single image reading "E.Y.E. am nearby Can you find my temporary space?", which links to a download of a "package.rar" file. The file decompresses into a "present.jpg" image which appears to be the same image found on the blog.
The solution to the puzzle come from thebruce, who posted it on the unForum thread. A summary:
- decompressed "package.rar" and obtain "present.jpg";
- noticed the size difference (image on blog=23.6 Kb, "present.jpg"=27.9 Kb);
- analyzed "present.jpg" binary data, noticed typical RAR signature following the JPG data;
- renamed "present.jpg" to "present.rar";
- decompressed "present.rar" and obtained a new image: "Me.jpg"
- the image leads to http://www.myspace.com/452627949 (note that this later became Me Myself And E.Y.E. MySpace Account )
- befriended said account on MySpace
- Was befriended in return; the account page was updated to http://www.myspace.com/brucefoundeye1st_thistime
- received a message with the following cipher:
- decoded as baconian cipher ( http://www.purplehell.com/riddletools/bacon.htm )
