“13” Unlucky for Some – Not All!

Week 13 Final Summary:

What an exhaustive week. Re-watched the video and kept checking back in just in case a new video was added for week 13 – That didn’t happen so we went with what we knew week 12!

Our 3rd Progress Report brought to us much knowledge and a few good leads to follow as our suspect became bolder and bolder. Here’s a few of the clues we got this time:

Snapshot Evidence

You've Been Hacked!!

We then were able to locate on the Internet a PDF file that was created with maps – they looked very similar to what we were thinking and looking for on the game. You can view our blog here:

Map Clues

Then all of a sudden once we located that map and followed those clues things just started falling into place. The evidence just started pouring in:

And the final clue was a post made by none other than “Burtis” herself:


4th Progress Report

Please watch our Vimeo video to watch our case from start to finish!

I must say this was a very fun and exciting two weeks as I used almost everything I learned up to this point in our course. I used several different means of creating evidence like Video which was our primary media chosen, Audacity audio files, GIMP, Vimeo, photography and photography editing tools, design, Web, Twitter, and Google! Most of them used with great ease . . . still not real good with GIMP but practice with the others I am getting better and better.

It’s Week Twelve. . . Almost There!

The knowledge is tremendous! The video’s are great . . . Week Twelve video was short and sweet – directly to the point:

Red and I got our Agency Noir Illusions registered early on so that we could get our case and get to working on it . . .

We received the case file – Night Rider “the missing game”! We reviewed the evidence provided and a video by Groom. . .

Our Case:

This is where we are at . . . gathering evidence and reviewing things we find:

Our primary media choice is going to be Video:

Review our Progress Reports to check out what we’ve found so far:

Second Progress Report

We have also come across some evidence for our case:

We have found the note and are inspecting it for any fingerprints or indicators of who may have left it!

The Note

We found evidence that the game actually did make it in to the room . . . as this picture shows it’s on the table, maybe not exactly where Mike Black may have left it but it was there. Just after Check in

And of course my ten comments for the week:



Week 11 What More Can I Say!!

Week 11 – seems nice and short plus the video was also short but still very informative! Low and behold though it may seem short but far from it . . . lots of work. . . work . . . work!!

This week we started forming our Agency . . . and we are:

Noir Illusions Agency – PI Work

We formed a group – Myself George Staniski and Red McIntosh and created the PI Agency, I am the Field Agent and Red is the Lead Detective. The President of our Agency is none other than Paul Bond! Our business cards are available for your use now or in the future! Design work worth 2 Stars. . .

Noir Illusions Bus Card

Business Card-Red

We’ve been working really hard to get our Agency out there by creating some good media to put out you know posters and such and even went over our stars requirement to make sure it was out there . . .

Our Bumper Sticker – design assignment worth 3 stars:

Noir Illusions Bumper Sticker

Some of our PI – “Red’s” work this week . . .



And of course there is our LOGO which is design assignment worth 3.5 Stars! Noir Illusions LOGONOW . . . let’s talk about that Web presence . . . WHEW!! Creating a sub-domain was easy enough but from that point (being older and a little more challenged with this new fangled technology) it was a bear!! Kept getting this funny looking file page and just couldn’t get the appearance to match my owners original web site. Red and I worked hard and diligently for a couple days trying to get it out there!! Finally we figured out what was going wrong . . . Word Press . . . we needed to install its own instance! Our next challenge was to figure out how we both were going to have access and work on the same web presence! Finally figured that one out and Red is added as a user and can work on the web too! Loving this technology about now!! Ohhhh then comes the design and appearance and requirements . . . WOW overwhelming again. . . but we got this going on . . . You can visit our “presence” here:  Noir Illusions Agency Remember it’s a “work in progress” as we await more detail from our home office!

For 3 stars – Web Assignments I present to you my Resume

For 2 stars – Web Assignments I must ask Could you be a Wise Guy? We must know before we proceed . . . are you in or not?

Happy Birthday Maggie Black!!

And Finally this weeks comments:

COMMENTS times 10!!

Daily Creates times two please!!

I got to say “Happy Birthday” to Maggie Black by creating her a birthday card! This was a great daily create because it keeps us on our toes, sends a message, and satisfies one of our assignments! What more could you ask for. I haven’t work much with her but believe we soon may meet!

Happy Birthday Maggie Black!!

My second daily create – keeping me on my creative toes . . .
