  1. !493mycXse23Nmr-e4QG1xGb–L0Kdipf4UVTkfRn_F4

    updated: just past half way, right after e4QG1xGb there were two dashes, which are being interpreted as a long dash by wordpress. using the code tag seems to have fixed that, so use this version

  2. Hi Pete, Thanks very much for this and can’t wait to hear it!!! However, the decryption key is invalid, according to Mega…I’m still stuck in the crypt! Kind Regards, MonkSphere

  3. thanks lads! the key has been corrected above.


  4. sorry. i was anxious to ear the full concert …

  5. Hi pete,
    The key doesn’t work. Could you check if this is the correct key?


    Where is my mistake?

    • you have !493mycXse23Nmr-e4QG1xGb-L0Kdipf4UVTkfRn_F4
      which should be !493mycXse23Nmr-e4QG1xGb–L0Kdipf4UVTkfRn_F4

      in case that doesn’t appear right, after “e4QG1xGb” you need two hyphens (a minus sign “-” twice) but it looks as if you have a long-dash. something about the way that wordpress handles two hyphens “–” in a row. Edit: yeah, and the preceeding sentence has the same problem!
