A lot of the groups are connected to Greek mythology. I wouldn't read too far into it.

You don't think there is a reason behind it?

Nope. A lot of LOST has roots in greek mythology, as well as other types of mythology and religion.

Well, I agree with you there, of course the thread into who this is wove is always interesting.  Sometimes I think it is random.

Sure miss playing that fake scrabble game ;D

Man, the frozen-time cheat in the puzzle game really frustrates me.  I suppose that the clever folks who figure out the clue and apply the cheat are justifiably rewarded with "DHARMA-cred" for their ingenuity, but it makes my hard-won score mean less, and the same goes for the trivia questions which (I think?) I rocked.

I can't really say that cheaters never prosper because that may very well be who DHARMA would be looking for.

It's just like looking in the source code for messages and links.  All part of the game for the make believe tv show.

Test 3 is up. I got a perfect score of 100.

THe cheat on this one is typing "lento" in while playing.  It slows it all down. I just kept typing it and it never speed up.

There is also a video on the front page discussing the "black swan" and his efforts to disrupt the dharma initiative. In the video there are some images that give the clues to the hint for Test 3.

That was easy.  Reminded me of the old Asteroids game.  Enceladus group.
