Okay, just peeked at the hiredark source code - apparently the main script (http://www.hiredark.com/script.php) shows the prompt with countdown, spinner and the permission error message when pressing ctrl-c. No evidence of anything happening when the timer reaches 0... And apparently there are some social trackers on the site. And some weird e-mail protection thingy linking to http://www.cloudflare.com ...

Also, I'm super pumped about Obduction and super happy for Cyan :D

After counting seconds measured by my clock (it ticks), I'm estimating either 7 days and 7-9 hours, or 8 days 22hours - 9 days. I'm leaning towards the smaller answer, since it looks like it should be that.

By my calculations, the countdown should finish at UTC 22:00, 06 January 2014.

What she said. It calculates to about 81 days (not 8 days). Which would makes this a Monday at 2:00 p.m. at Cyan HQ.

Online calculator here.

I feel really silly now.

Even still, your calculation is slightly off. You need to compensate for the fact that the number isn't dropping at exactly 1000/sec. It's dropping a bit faster than that (I make it about 1100/sec), so you need to divide your 81 days by 1.1, to get a date of 30th December this year, at 1300 GMT.

Thanks :)

Still not sure what any of it means yet but here are my observations:
image 06 - has #18 on it
image 07 - has several numbers around it but #08 is most prominent
image 07 - also has measuring units on the bottom and left. it's 28 units tall and 28 units wide
image 10 - has # 10 on it
image 64 - has measuring units on the bottom and left. it's 7.5 units tall and 7.5 units wide

Also images 04, 09, 11, 13, and 18 have a watermark on them. It's most visible on #13

We interrupt this delightful speculation to point out that the KS campaign is closing in on $200,000. I know donations aren't going to keep this feverish pace for the entire 29 days, but there's a very good chance that Cyan will reap a quarter of what they're asking in 24 hours! We rock!

Can't wait to see what the stretch goals would be!

I would've gone for that, had I the money, been a few years older, and lived in the US.

In my overeager attempts to solve this puzzle, I mistook a stock photo watermark for one of the mysteries of Obduction. Apparently, Cyan get's its images from http://www.123rf.com/ :roll:

I think I'm done for today. :)
