Transmission Log

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

(Redirected from 206.16.223.65)
The countdown website's first appearance.

Transmission Log, also known as 206.16.223.65, was a website tied to the first episode of Iris called "The Unknown Helper". Found on the last page of the Halo 3: The Cradle of Life comic, the Transmission Log featured a countdown on it that was running down in base 7 integers to the June 21, 2007. Periodically the text changed, giving updates that seemingly related to the status of Adjutant Reflex who was interacting with users on Bungie.net.

Overview[edit]

On June 18 the site had a "System Breach" where the countdown speed increased, and on 1 PM Eastern Standard time the timer on the countdown ran down to 0. It was shortly replaced by a much longer, much slower moving countdown. And then replaced later with a stationary countdown with the numbers '001 012 034 053' on June 19. On June 20 the site redirected users to the Bounce Path Control and by extension the first Server.

Content[edit]

In the following series of text changes on the countdown website; "0" represents the numbers in the countdown. From left to right, the four three-digit numbers represented days, hours, minutes and seconds.

Coordinates[edit]

Mount Elgon Caldera.

If the countdown timer numbers "001-012-034-053" are treated as GPS coordinates 1.12, 34.53, it results in a location in South Africa, the point is in the middle of the largest caldera in the world, at the tip of Mount Elgon, also home to some "unusual caves", and not far from Voi.
