Has anyone else realized that the folder in the zip file you get reads as last modified on June 25th, 1993 at 1707 pm? I'd imagine this would've had to have been specifically modified to read this date, so I'm wondering if this has any significance and/or relates to the countdown given on the minigame.

The date was a few days after the Unabomber hit both a genetics professor at the University of California @ SanFran, and a computer science head at Yale. While it might seem like a stretch, I do have to wonder if the Ubi developers are hinting at something...

Anyway, I never would have noticed that. Sounds interesting. Have to google it later.

1993 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993) June 25th (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_25)

See if you can find some crazy conspiracy.

Like I said, what I've found is the Unabomber, and some Kurdish insurgents attacking somewhere. One of my friends also found some kind of Muslim group attacking a location in Italy.

If you click June 25th and read the first part, it says it's the 177th leap year in the Gregorian Calendar. Modified at 17:07. Anything?

I think you're on to something, but it actually says that June 25th is the 177th DAY of the year on leap years, which 1993 was not. Still, it's a good point to bring up. Hmm.

EDIT: Also just realized; 2010 minus 1993 is 17.

subject 17? no his story is taking place in 2012

EDIT: first thing i thought of when seeing 1993 was the gulf war and i checked it and it was the day clinton has ordered the attack on Iraq. but no matches to anything that might do with "17:07"

Desmond Miles was born that day. The same day his parents were killed.
