I really mean it!



Happy April Fools Day!  No, I'm not going to tell you what it means.  That would be cheating.

Argh!! Never should have looked. Now I'm gonna spend the next who-knows-how-many hours trying to figure out what that means, and all I've got to go on is that the first three lines look like Akkadian or Babylonian/Assyrian cuneiform and the last line might be Egyptian hieroglyphics. Also, is that an exclamation point at the end, and, if so, are we to take the entire four lines to be a single sentence?

You could always ask Unka Bill ;-)
Yep, Assyrian and Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Dammit, Ma'am, when you had me chilled down in a back room at BCR Labs, awaiting re-animation, why did you not think of loading the cuneiform and hieroglyphic understandings into my new brain parts?

Oh, and my connection is *waaay* to slow this day for me to try to suss this out!

Besides, there's new rifle (Gew 91) to welcome to the Arsenal!

Well, I found the site you used to encode your message. Too bad it doesn't have a translator going the other way. The first line is even straight out of the translator's example text: "I go to my mountain house with food". Unfortunately, only a couple of those characters are repeated, and at least two of them can be translated as an assortment of nouns and verbs. *sigh*

If you were truly serious, Cortillaen, you'd download all 45 or so pages of flashcards and starting deciphering.

But nooooo, like mosta you youngsters, you want some fancy-pantsed easy way to do it.

Embrace your inner geek - whip up an image recognition program, load up the flash cards as the DB, and start feeding it BCR's tease...

Damn echo follows me wherever I go - but yer dang captcha thingy said I got it wrong!

It's not my fault!

Help! I'm stuck on the escalator and it's stopped moving! Help! I don't know what to do! Call the government and tell them to rescue me!

[Sorry, my inner democrat got loose there for a moment.]
