the site is not loading for me.

the site would not work for google chrome, or firefox
I finally got it to work with IE

I'm a Proof Reader in the Communications Division.

how did you guys post your results, I can't figure it out.
I opened the dossier in Adobe reader, then zoomed out a bit so it fit my screen.  Then I hit the "PrtScrn" button on the keypad.  Now I have a copy on my virtual clipboard.  I opened my photo editing software and made a new file.  Then I selected "Paste" and the image came up.  The rest of the way you just treat it like any other photo.  Upload it to photobucket or some other photo sharing site and then insert it into your post. 

Did I make that sound harder than it is?

We have 3 of these now. Must be the job they give the cheats.

Teacher
(no cheats...missed one test)




Mini Bus Driver
(cheats...missed several tests)




This dichotomy justifies my quote earlier in this thread:

Quote
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.

Well, I got my follow-up email from Darlton.  It seems the game fell through.  No more Dharma wants you.  Bummer.....

do you think this is what they had planed all along, or the ARG actually fell apart?

My impression from the video component is the were caught off guard and have to do something. It seems kinda haphazard at the moment

They said that it was going to be cool, but abc will not spend the money on it. So we get some behind the scenes stuff. People who are part of the Dharma Intiative get them 48 hours before anyone else.
