I think it’s fair to say that this single step was hardest, as Council didn’t do it, I sure as hell didn’t do it. Maybe no one legitimately did it. Maybe that makes 1o57 sad. Maybe 1o57 should have ensured there were a few extra keys so that we couldn’t just brute force the combinatorics.
As it stands, we had 8!~40k urls, which is several hours, but not prohibitive. 10! would have been.
Because I’m giving out the solution with reasoning, I’m not going to hand out the script that I used to pound the server, but I’m sure you can write your own.
The data you should have gathered from the sites is:
Execution :04011960 247545 Two :09151961 Tmesis Miniature :02211963 DangerZone Steel :10041963 MimeAndPunishment Chameleon :10041985 FoolsErrand Mute :01311963 IsThereLifeOnMars Static :03101961 ZoneDanger Dust :01061961 TwilightZone Youtubes from the AFVs are: 247545 : Frank Sinatra Love is a many splendored thing Tmesis : Lil Rob summer nights (note:wrong artist...)

Lost, you son of a bitch.
Council alluded to a mysterious ‘blue moon’ site as well as the one above. Given what we’ve done to find this one, that might just be crap from 1o57 to throw them off the endgame.
