Rachel Blake seems to be quite the prolific blogger. Another post has been made today and she claims to have recorded a conversation between Mittlewerk and a Korean man. She has hidden the message somwhere in here:

Aussie Lost Forum

This is an Australian Lost fan forum site (message board). Interestingly enough, she signs this post as "rblake, 105 years". This could be a possible clue to the location of the message or a log-in user I.D. and password? And when did she switch her attention from Hugh McIntyre to Thomas Mittlewerk? Fickle Rachel?

Once you are re-directed to the Australian Message Board you can do the following to find the message (note: you must have a valid Yahoo I.D. and be logged in to continue!). Click on any post and then click on “reply to message”. A reply box will appear with a NOTE in the sidebar. Under this note is a link called “otherwise objectionable content”. Clicking on this brings up the following site:

Enter “rblake” as the user name and “105years” as the password. Then click on the now hot link, which reads, “peeping on tom”. This will bring up an audio file called RachelBlake_KoreanPost4REV which is 52 seconds in length and contains the conversation of two men conversing in Korean.

The Conversation

Translation (per Rachel) follows:

MITTELWERK: Minsu, so great to see you.
MINSU: Dr. Mittelwerk. Good to see you too. Mr. Paik sends his warmest regards.
MITTELWERK: He's just saying that because we've paid him so much money.
MINSU: Ah. I see that it's straight to business.
MITTELWERK: As always.
MINSU: I think you'll be pleased to hear your ship is almost ready; with all the modifications. But I have to warn you - this kind of ship can't dock just anywhere.
MITTELWERK: We have a port. How long will it be?
MINSU: I'd say no sooner than three weeks.
MITTELWERK: Could you pass the pepper? So what will it take to make it 2 weeks?

(In background of pepper shaking: "Grab it")

From this last bit it would appear Mittlewerk now knows that he is being watched (or at least heard.) Mittlewerk was checking shipping lanes because they will be moving a very large modified ship of some sort and they have a port to ship it from. Why the large modified ship? And where could this port be? And does it feel like Rachel is helping us out with her posts?

Should we be looking for the "New World Docks – Slip 23" as the port? Hmm...

Yes, it does seem like slip 23 is worth looking into as well as New World Docks 18-27...although I've tried to find out how many slips or docks are at Portsmouth with no luck. Also, did Magnus Hanso sail on the Black Rock? If so where does it say so? We know he survived and continued to ship out for years...and then there is the ship's manifest. Where is that? Is there a chance that's what Mittlework was researching in the archive?

During the episode "Lockdown" John Locke saw the blast door map. One of the entries said "Site of Magnus Hanso." At the time no one really knew who Magnus was but because of this many believe that he died and is buried on the island.
