This was fun until the password stage. I tried all the obvious including 'hunter2' then decided this is no fun whatsoever and had a brief dip into the javascript but couldn't find anything worth my time so ended it there.

ETA: Did another run through and it's obvious what the password is, no digging through code needed.  :-DD


Yes same here, I rummaged around for the code in Javascript, ended up even finding some pages here:

https://abstrusegoose.com/sa-comics/578/scripts/login_scripts/login.js

I looked and looked and ended up guessing the password anyways... I won't give away the secret, except to say we have read some of the same Sci-Fi books.  ;)  Still, just as an exercise I am still curious where the compare is being done to see where they stored the password (or are they doing it via calculation which would be a better way to obfuscate it rather than just a string).
Any more clues for the password.
Having a hard time figuring it out. :( ???

If we could just know the answer to everything, then we will know this password, too.   ^-^

A French dude during Napoleon times was trying to calculate how the heat spread in a metal plate.  What could go wrong?

About quarter of millennia later:
- 5G
- mobile phones
- WiFi
- mp3, Photoshop, CGI special effect
- digital oscilloscope, SA, VNA
- MRI, NMR
- crystallography, LHC
- astronomical spectroscopy
- insert almost whatever here ...

The dude's name was Fourier.

Rename the attached video from ".webm.png" to ".webm" only, then play it.

Fun?  OK.
 ;D

Now play it in a loop, while looking at the yellow wheel.
The yellow wheel turns, suddenly stops, then rotates again.
Who's locking the wheel?
 :o

This is how it should look, but still, seeing it is mesmerizing.
Relativity of the observer at its finest.
