If you are, here's my latest update. First up for what it's worth I think the game is still very much afoot - although that's just my humble opinion and I'm not a pro-arg-er. So what do I know? Things did seem to fall apart over the weekend, but there's an update on the homepage now - although it is something you've probably seen before! And also for what it's worth I didn't get anything in the post, I never worked out who I was calling, and no-one called me. Right here's what I do have (I think some, if not all, might be familiar if you've been following unfiction):
First up I didn't spot it early on Saturday morning but I got the following e-mail...it wasn't to my normal address but fell into the huge pot that any e-mail to any other address @ lazylaces.com ends up in (I'm not sure what address was used). Anyway you'll see that Islington has stolen Toby's e-mail address. Or is Toby = Islington. A matter of some debate already:

Next up I received a "Strange Request" from a third party called Martin. What's going on?

You don't know me, but I was (I think) requested to give you a "word".
I'm trying too help another individual, a person named Islington, on a quest.
Another person helping Islington forwarded me an email from him with the following text:
Sir T [sings] 'O, the thirteenth day of December'
This is an obvious reference to Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", but the text is wrong.
It should read, "Sir Toby [sings] 'O, the twelfth day of December'".
I looked for a copy of this work where that appears on page 37 and found this document (although I'm sure there are dozens more where that's the case):
http://worldebooklibrary.com/eBooks/ Coradella_Collegiate_Bookshelf_Collection/ shakespeare-twelfthnight.pdf
The word I'm supposed to give you remains a mystery to me...
't (first word on page 37)
I'm hoping you will know what word you need.
The email also included the following instructions:
Hi - my name's orkid, I've also met that guy.
Heres the link he sent me, he says you'll recognise it
but not to get too strung out at first. He also told
me to say "theres no such thing as a coincidence".
I dont know if that means anything to you but there
you so. Nice to meet you!
If you follow the link, you'll see that there is a link to your site and the note that you need a word.
This is the best I can do at fulfilling that request. If you hear from Islington, let me know how he's doing. I haven't heard from him on some earlier emails.
Oh my head hurts. That's it for now. More tomorrow?
UPDATE: Almost forgot, here are the comment logs of Islington (at least I think they are) since he changed his IP Address (there are some new ones if you've seen this before):
UPDATE: I've further obsucured the email addresses of people I found to be just other players of the game rather than "part" of the game - sorry folks I thought you were fictional! Another arg twist I didn't fully appreciate!
