And how do people decipher them? I've done a bit of fiddling with SSTV before (after some of the rumours regarding the video to Come To Daddy by Aphex Twin) but who the hell thinks "I wonder what this wav file would look like slow-scanned"?!
I'm blatantly going to get no work done today. Thanks Valve...

Players eventually figured out the coordinates referred to pay phones and the times to when the phones would ring; one player in Florida stayed by a phone while Hurricane Frances was minutes away in order to recite answers to prerecorded questions. Other phone calls were made by live persons known as "operators"; these calls allowed players to interact with the characters of the games in spontaneous and occasionally humorous ways. Other players treated the corrupted data on ilovebees.com as encrypted files to decipher, or used image files found on the web server to solve puzzles. After players completed certain tasks, they were rewarded with new installments to an audio drama which revealed the reasons for the ilovebees.com malfunction.
