Timeline of Events

Autumn, 2007

During various tv shows and premieres, there was a viral ad that started out with a pair of red robotic eyes lights lighting up, followed by several flashes of action, followed by the url "Takebackthefuture.com". On the website there's a counter counting down days, in the style of an old analog counter.
  • The counter is also interrupted with flashes of video (SWF), and audio recordings (anyone know of any stored versions to link to?).
  • Some audio clips were transcribed as
"Listen to me. Skynet - it's happening again"

"This is real. They will take over. We're all in danger - my mom's not crazy."

  • New EniTech blog entry: Dec 23, 2007 - Image 113 A/B from this evening.
    Enitech reveals the first image taken from their tachyon camera, and its comparison photo to today, making note of a few environmental differences, such as a renovated building.

December 24, 2007

  • New EniTech blog entry: Dec 24, 2007 - Image 284 A/B - 12/24/07
    The second tachyon camera photo is revealed. Today's photo is of an empty area in San Francisco, where the tachyon photo reveals a building has been built.

January 3, 2008

  • New EniTech blog entry: Jan 3, 2008 - Images 57 A/B.
    The next tachyon camera photo is revealed. Today's photo is of a street in San Francisco, where the tachyon photo reveals a few minor differences.

January 10, 2008

  • New EniTech blog entry: Jan 10, 2008 - s34A/B gives us a very unexpected result.
    Enitech has revised their estimate of hours ahead in time the camera takes pictures, to 28,632 (about 1193 days, from the initial 1191 estimate). Their next photo is of an Enitech employee, Jacob Gustar, who they asked to return on their estimated future date (April 17, 2011) to the same spot, and see if the tachyon camera shows him in its picture. It did not.

January 11, 2008

January 12, 2008

  • New EniTech blog entry: Jan 12, 2008 - 2nd Gardner Project Video - Test Results
    Enitech's second video of the tachyon camera is uploaded to youtube, and another pair of photos is displayed - this time of a newspaper stand. The future paper indicates an unknown disease is rampant. The video also shows they tested the camera on a mirror, which revealed simply tachyon static.
  • Takebackthefuture.com now shows a red eye, which when clicked fades and produce a map of the earth. The video shows the human population count in relation to the cyborg population, and its dratic change over time due to 'Judgement Day', and the resulting war - humans are all but wiped out, and the cyborg population spreads to 3 billion, while humans remain with 47 million.
    Three blue points of interest appear near the end - in southern Mexico, northern Colombia, and Israel. The countdown then returns at the very end.

  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Episode 1 premieres on Fox

January 14, 2008

  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Episode 2 premieres on Fox
  • Frank Bentley sent messages and posted a new comment in the Facebook group
Lately I've been getting quite a few messages looking for information about Cyberdyne Systems. To everyone contacting me looking for information...

The company is gone. They haven't been around for years. Unforunately they were ruined by the attack in 1991.

If you're still interested in that type of work then I would suggest you should check out the non-profit trust setup in my late friend's memory. Though it's not the same type company, they do have similar cutting edge research projects.

January 16, 2008

  • New Enitech blog entry: Jan 16, 2008 - g61a/b
    A photo of a nearby neighborhood with a regular camera shows a natural environment - the tachyon camera shows a frighteningly different scene.

January 17, 2008

  • New Enitech blog post: Jan 17, 2008 - Anna Reponds.
    Anna posts a video blog complaining about the obsessing going on over the photo of her posted by Mike, she references the Somethingawful forums and the Unfiction forums by nme, and emphasizes one should 'always be worried about the future'. There are also a number of equations and words scribbled on the whiteboard behind the worried Anna.

January 18, 2008

  • Anna Kies' login to Dyson Trust hacked
    The Anna's worried puzzle was solved, revealing the login to Dyson Trust's secure section, where we learn in a letter from Lawrence Kelly, about the Centurion Project - proposed to Dyson Trust by an unknown organization for support funding and support, which they rejected, but recommended forwarding to the Department of Defense (though offering their services in an advisory role).
    A second letter discussed the status of the Enitech project - the initial proposal from Dr. Bentley, based on a device that was discovered (a camera, as described later in an Enitech video). Dr. Baxter, a Dyson board member, examined the device and approved Bentley's request, making it Enitech's next R&D project (now the tachyon camera).
    The final 4 images are of what appear to be punchcards, begging to be decoded
  • New Enitech blog post: Sometimes we see what we don’t want to see
    Enitech reveals more devastating images from the future of neighborhoods around San Francisco.
  • New Enitech blog post: Anna at the device recovery location
    Anna posts a video at the site where they found a modified camera that their team reversed engineered and which became the basis for the Gardner Project. Along with the camera were four punchcards which they believe hold the locations of four other cameras. The video is interrupted by an approaching figure in the distance, prompting the team to flee the location. On arrival at their vehicle, before they're able to get away, a threatening person appears at the driver's window, but not soon enough, and the team escapes.

January 21, 2008

  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Episode 3 premieres on Fox

January 22, 2008

  • vpisteve managed to find a hidden package at the California location.
    The package is a thermos containing a number of items, including a camera with the back plate removed (likely what 'resistance device' is referring to), a battery charger, a USB cable, an empty 32MB CF memory card, and a survival multi-tool. No clues or messages were found with it or in it
  • The second package has reportedly been picked up from "Lily" by a person named Bill, but no report of the package has yet made its way online, and Bill's location is unknown.
  • "Zoltan Gerts" posted in the Cyberdyne facebook group explaining that a man named Bill approached him and gave him the package, along with a lot of additional information
    He describes "Bill" as "a tall hooded man wearing a skiing mask and some kinda goggles that completely cover his face", who said he was "an associate of [his] father (whom [he has] not heard from in over a decade)". Bill gave him the package and told him to protect it at all costs. Bill mentions a rogue resistance cell and "preventing someone from 'compromising the integrity of the code'". The package contents are the same as vpisteves in California, but with the addition of a note which simply says: "Face North. Take a photograph. Contact Enitech Research."
    Who is Bill? Who is Zoltan?

January 23, 2008

  • New Enitech blog post: 2 devices recovered in LA and NY. 2 still hidden. New photos coming in
    Photos of the two packages that were picked up are posted, along with the accounts of the deaddrops. Zoltan's meeting with the mysterious Bill included, but still no information is known. They are concerned for the safety of those who find the cameras. They also received an email from someone named "Alex" containing a number of photos in similar fashion to their tachyon camera's results - someone else may possess a similar device.
  • Later, vpisteve received a communication from a flickr account named "The Resistance":
 :: the device

If you are still in possession of the device contact me immediately and you will receive instructions.

Be careful.

They are watching you.


  • vpisteve replied, to which he received another response:
Someone wants to send you a message.

Go to Security Trust of Los Angeles, point the device at box A117 inside the bank vault. It has steel walls that can withstand a severe nuclear blast with an estimated yield of around 50 megatons. Take a photo with the device.

Send us your coordinates where the photo was taken.

Send the photo to Enitech and tell them to process it.

Let's see what develops.

  • The bank Security Trust of Los Angeles is the bank that Sarah, John, and Cameron visited in the pilot episode, when locating box A117 registered to "E. Boykins", or "The Engineer" - a resistance fighter from the future who developed a powerful weapon and components for a time displacement field which would take them to 2007 - in the middle of the 105 freeway (indicating the bank was destroyed).
  • Frank Bentley's status on his facebook profile now reads: "busy collecting"

January 24, 2008

  • Frank Bentley's status on his facebook profile now reads: "checking into a rumor"
  • vpisteve travels to the bank to carry out his task.
    He takes two pictures of the bank and sends them to Enitech for processing.
  • Enitech replies to Steve saying
Thank you. We've been contacted by someone claiming to be in "the resistance" who has asked us to process these images using our system. We're curious to find out what will turn up. We'll be in touch soon.
Excellent work.
  • A new image on the Restistance's flickr account is posted showing newspaper clippings, and saved in a new set "other".
    The central clip is Dutch, but contains a paragraph of numbers - code? This begins a new puzzle to solve.

January 25, 2008

  • New Enitech blog post: Enitech update video on the latest news from the Gardner Project 1/25/08
    A video outlining their findings from the past couple of days is posted, with the realization that there will be a devastating event occuring within about 3 years. With this in mind, they are storing their findings in a very ssafe vault for the future, for the survivors, in case it helps them.
    Also hidden within the video are numerous frames - likely placed there by The Resistance. One seems to prompt us with an email to contact them (takebackthefuture@gmail.com); one tells us that "The Turk is not dead", and one is a clip of a dead enitech member - Jacob Gustar! (the one asked to pose in front of a wall in 3 years, who the tachyon photo showed didn't make it)
  • Prompted by the final hidden frame of the crime scene, KookieB emailed EniTech asking if Jacob Gustar was dead, to which they replied:
You must be confused. Jacob is still very much alive. He's sitting across from me as I write this.
  • On emailing the Resistance email address from the video, a response is sent containing a second numeric code to solve.
  • thebruce emailed the Resistance asking if they had any additional information about Jacob Gustar's apparent murder. A reply was received quickly containing the original image that was inserted into the video of Jacob's crime scene (right). Note the date: the photo was taken April 11, 2008 - almost 3 months in the future.

January 27, 2008

  • catherwood managed to reverse-engineer the latest two numeric puzzles, revealing the locations of the final two cameras - Lago Vista, by Austin, TX, and by a baseball field in Orland, FL.

January 28, 2008

  • New Enitech blog post: 2nd recovered device image. From the New York City device.
    Zoltan sent in his photo from NY, with a little info passed on from his contact "Bill". He was given coordinates to photograph from, and to face north. He sent two photos - one with a compass in the frame and one without. Enitech processed and displayed the latter. In the frame, for the second time, is a "RESIST" plaque with another symbol (this one differs from the first, revealed in Steve's bank vault photo earlier). Thus we may be looking at another puzzle.

January 29, 2008

  • RoseKitty retrieves the Austin, TX resistance package, takes a north-facing photo with the camera, and submits it to Enitech. Photos of the drop are on her flickr.
  • New Enitech blog post: 3rd Recovered Device Image. From Texas
    rosekitty, aka Ellie, had her photo from the Texas camera processed (the image she submitted was already loaded on the camera, oddly)

January 30, 2008

  • A series of emails were sent from the Resistance after 3am Eastern, each growing more urgent, containing increasing amounts of the message below:
there is one more device remaining.

skynet is coming now.

warn enitech.

no more time left. (previously: only hours left)

Attached were photos of the exact deaddrop location for the last resistance package in Orland FL, seeming to verify the GPS coordinates that were given.
  • Takebackthefuture.com is updated with video clips and a series of specific countdown numbers interspersed throughout the clips: 2739, 1987, 1920, 1975, 7542, 0232, 1206.
  • New EniTech blog entry: Jan 30, 2008 - Warnings.
    Enitech clears the air and lets people know they've received the warnings about the old Cyberdyne project (Skynet) and a potential security threat to an employee. They are staying alert.

January 31, 2008

  • An email was received by TimonyCrickets from Frank in response to his emailed warning:
Thanks for the warning Timony. We'll keep our eyes open. Tomorrow morning I'll talk to the security staff at our building about the issue.
  • New EniTech blog entry: Jan 31, 2008 - Webcam footage recorded hours ago.
    A video is posted of a webcam conversation between Mike and Anna. The outlook does not look good for Mike. However, Mike reveals what may be the key for understanding the RESIST symbols - a form of neural network diagram. They also ask anyone to email them with information if it's known.
  • An email was received by Punchline from Frank in response to his emailed information:
We use an electronic keycard system and yes, the building automatically locks up after 6:30pm. Investigators are still working to figure out exactly how and why the intruder gained access without force.

February 1, 2008

  • An email was received by thbruce from Enitech after emailing with condolences and and information:
We are still struggling to overcome the loss and it will be hard to overcome. Our team is working to salvage the work that Mike was doing for us. He was in the process of processing the 4th image and we are working to find out what's on it.
