The New Topics list seems to be full of stupid posts about it. Is it some kind of game? It's getting very old very fast.

It's a 48 hour inter-high school online treasure hunt competition in India.

Students have been using A2k to exchange hints for many years.

They swarm, they disappear, they reappear the following year.

@mark noble,
I love their enthusiasm - 48 hours when A2k feels a bit less like a retirement home.

@ehBeth,
Beth - I advocate each persons/peeps right to expression of whatever they see fit to express.
If I understood what the heck it was about, I might even join in - But I don't.
If there were a lost (Smithsonian-hidden) artifact at its end - I would decrypt it for fun.Smile

@mark noble,
A lot of it seems to be old-skool decryption. Maybe related to India's colonial history?
