    I got something else... My answer was >38645.txt< and it worked. I'm on the second step with the people but I'm not sure what's next.

    That worked (DropBox put a Captain's log folder in the DropBox 2012 folder) but what now?

    Open the file you created. (Might have to do it from the website, that's what the chapter 1 instructions said...)

    I was thinking some of the parts would be elbow grease or a quantum gyrochronatron. But adding those as .txt files didn't seem to do anything.

    EDIT - nvm didnt realize you need to open the file you created.

    i feel like the dropbox servers are getting slammed right now.

    UMA - Open the file you've just saved from the web.
    Dropbox will have wrote instructions in there.

    Or keep reading this thread! :D

    if you want to use them:
    Chapter 4: SOMA
    Chapter 5: MAD LIB
    Chapter 6: you need to invert the images
    i used this link: http://www.converthub.com/invert-colors/
    it's easier than opening photoshop.

    Now you want to go the "events"
    https://www.dropbox.com/events
    and enter the date of the ones whose colors don't match.

    M= Month; D= Day; Y= Year;

    Chpater 7: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2012/'PW'
    PW -- LEADING or DEALING or aligned
    ----------

    it's not a file.
    https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2012/'insertPW here'
    [without the apostrophes]

    Been refreshing for 5 minutes. Either I get service unavailable or the dropbox bandaided box.

    what's with the third one? Are we supposed to guess which the name of one of the icons, or add all the names together?

    FINALLY! It works. Just keep at it. I think they're just getting slammed. Even my dropbox login is dog slow.
