I have the password for #2 but it won't let me use it? I don't get it mang.

>>39919505my nigga, get a color printer
>>39919578Bro you mean colour?
>>39919662what did this fag mean? We are 'merican. Pure capitalism. We stopped using the u because it was too expensive to print on the news papers. Fuck the u there aint no u in color.

Posting some of the material headed down to Gainesville Florida soon. I hope that my targets likes the bandolier, books and snacks.
how do I do 4? it's too fast for me to make out anything during the flashes for 5
>>39920037it's morse code, you write down the message nd find the answer. protip: right clicking can help you change the speed to half so it's slower.
>>39918470>tfw I'm in a discord with my target and he has no idea
any more hints on getting the key from five?
>>39920258i've been stuck on 5 for a good couple hours now, not gonna lie. i've looked through all the stuff from the past 5 questions, i can't figure out what the key is
>>39920258>>39920304Without giving away too much, there may have been some problems with certain colors not showing up correctly on some monitors. Check the krypto site again.
>>39920477DUBS AND COLORS GET IT ON SCORE FOR AMERICA
>>39920477it's funny cause i already caught those highlighted numbers but i'm still finding trouble incorporating them... also DUBS AND COLORS GET
>>39920505Is it only numbers that are highlighted?
>>39920477big boss why must you make us wait for so long? the prize at the end better be worth it.
>>39920611why are we here, just to suffer
>>39920625so close. Fucked it all up. Tumbling down.
>>39920551the word "important" is in red, and the numbers there's 6 highlights of 2-digit numbers.
>>39919266I'm real sorry dude :( I tried to get everything done nice and early but they totally porked me in the butt with the shipping. It is on its way, I swear on my waifu. >>39919505I am mucho excite >>39919662YES
Anyone else worried you reciever won't like what you sent?
>>39921125very, most of the milsurp I sent wasn't in his exact era. Some of it was but it was normie tier. the cool shit was all somewhat different era.I have a small second wave planned with one more piece from his era and something else objectively useful/cool
>>39921125Yeah, my package was delivered on the first and my target hasn't said anything about getting it so I'm even more worried it never got to him or he was just in it to get free stuff
>>39921170my guy got his stuff but never posted up. frankly that's a little rude.
>be in first batch>my santa told me in a thread he was going to ship out late>told me I would get my stuff early December>still havent heard from him or received a gift>beginning to think I just got bamboozled for the second year in a rowI sent out my gift with plenty of time and I work 65+ hours a week and go to school part time and spend time at the range and gym. I really dont see how you can sign up for something and then immediately after realize your shit is too busy or you suddenly dont have the money. And I know this is about giving, and all, but I dont really have a lot of family or friends and this was the one thing I was actually looking forward to. Even if it was just some smoked meat or some dumb shit. Literally the feeling like someone actually has the commitment to follow through with something this simple is all I actually wanted. Not posting anything beyond that because I honestly dont want anyones pity gifts. Just wanted one stranger to follow through with his word for once. Heres to holding out hope a little longer
>>39921138Yea. I've been thinking of a backup too. I sent some USMC stuff that I think is really cool and useful /well made, but I can see how others think is stupid.>>39921170That sucks man. I hope they are just generally rude and not a grinch.
>>39921689Don't fret too hard man - it is still early December, I'm sure you'll get your stuff soon :)
>>39921125Yup. Also my plan to send him a second package almost went out the window because my second item would be useless to him. Very worried.
My target wrote practically nothing on his wishlist and I'm not really sure what to get him :(
Last call for leto from kansas. Wake the fuck up dude
>>39921689Dont worry. If you don't get anything, we've got anons who've signed up for Grinch relief.
>>39921871What wave are you in?I was wayyyyy too specific on mine like a complete idiot. Also haven’t seen anything from my Santa and BB sent him a message like 2 weeks ago asking how things were going. Getting slightly worried.
>>39922192Yea, me too. Should I email Big Boss to see what's up?
>>39922192the current wave i think? need to ship till the 14th-15th
>>39922385Ah, ok, just wanted to make sure you weren’t my Santa. >>39922284You can, I feel like I’ll just wait for Christmas to roll around and if I don’t see anything by then just apply for grinch relief. I just hope my target likes his presents, never heard anything back from him either. And that’s been a week or two since delivered. :(
>>39920731I’m not worried at all. The excitement is killing me is all
>>39922192> way too specific. You asked for panties from a Chilean Loli my dude. So you get nothing.
Hey IowaBro! Did you ever receive my package?
>>39922453Iowabro from Waterloo, Iowa. I checked the tracking number, it said its been delivered to your front door! Pls respond :( And post pics, I tried hard making that box!
>>39920551Hi Big Boss Have you heard back from the Slovenian guy who was supposed to send me a gift for round 1?Also looking forward to participate in round 4, haven't signed up yet
>>39922463Yeah bud I tried finding you in the last thread. I got your package just fine. Had a good laugh at the box art, my dad thought it was hilarious. Super tempted but will wait till Christmas. Thanks so much!
>>39922517Please email me on the matter - thanks!
BM from FL, what sort of surplus do you want? Also, how edgy do you like your humor and memes?
Sword is done, shipping out today. Hope my anon enjoys it.
>>39923501That is super rad my man!

Tfw you're second batch sent out your goodies, and haven't heard from your target yetYfw you notice many others getting grinched It looks like it's gonna be another shity Christmas lads
>>39925077Where are you from? It is still too early if you got international match it might take time
>mfw got grinched last year>mfw my grinch relief got lost in new york (was sent from chzeckboi)>mfw bach one and no mention of me>mfw no gidt sent as of december 1st acording to big boss2 years in a row lads.
>>39919662>mfw we have converted another one
>>39921125extremely worried, yes
>>39921125Yeah, my santa match was very specific but I wasn't able to get a hold of everything from the list, so I got what I could and am going to throw in some extras... Seems like a cool guy though, so maybe he'll understand. My description was kind of broad cause I didn't know what to write, so I'm wondering how my santa will interpret it. Hasn't posted in any of these threads yet so I'm kind of taking that as a good sign.
>>39925077This is the same for me.
>>39919266I have only received two. Are you sure there is a third?
Louisiana bro, Cody from NH here and I got your package today. I'll open it up on Christmas and I'll post pics!
Jon in Calicuck you're shits on it's way.
David O in WV, your package was sent today and should arrive Monday.
Based KS anon, supply drop received last night. Delivery man scared the fuck outta me with a loud thud on the porch after dark and almost had to draw on him.

>>39927182Fat fingers holy shit.
To the santa in Danville, your gift was under the tree when i got off work. I went ahead and opened it because the wife wanted to know why BBC was on the side of the box. Everything you sent is awesome. Have not installed the comp but its a perfect fit, merry christmas
>>39926303nice gift anon
For the krypto challenge two, I am starting to doubt that R = I. Request very very minor help.
>>39927417R does not equal I. There is something in the hint that should give you a clue where to look.For anyone trying the challenges, know that I designed them to be solved by determining the encryption method and using that to decode them. While all except the last one can be brute forced with enough time, you'll have much better luck trying to figure out what the cipher is - and that's what the hints are for!
>>39927489Thanks for responding so quick, Big Boss
I really want to grinch my target and keep what i got him for myself. But.... im not a nig
>>39921689Whats your name? You Monty in WI?If so, i just got the last part of your gift today. I added some value to make up for the tardy send out
I opened tonight, i feel like a jew, but i wont be in town for xmas. Washing the glitter of has been a bitch. Going to try and use that dog dong on a tender sloot tomorrow night. Wind meter is perfect, it will be great for my match this weekend, and works with my ballistics software. Flash light is charging,That jap candy is goodThanks for the patches and rubbers. Fuck you for the glitter, that shit is everywhere
Gonna be that kind of xmas
Works great, i need to make a weather vane mount for it.
>>39926116Thanks for the heads up, I’ll be watching for it!
>>39927489You get my email about sending my package out?
A1 from WV the second half of your gift has finally been shipped!
>>39922590Great! Make sure to post when you open it!
Tfw you get an email from BB saying it’s been shippedOh lawd
>>39927769i specifically asked for no sex toys this year. i see from your pic, that its something im just going to have to do every year from now on.
>>39930003BB tells you when your gift ships?
>>39930066If someone mails me requesting that they be notified when the gift ships, I'll make a note to do so.
>>39918470I just got my target the 4 fingers of fucking death. I can't wait for him to open it up.
>>39930066He told me probably because I asked him a couple weeks ago since someone impersonating my Santa said he wasn’t shipping. And has just kept me up to date since then.
>>39930110>tfw your santa is so ghost nobody even pretends to be himWhat batch are we on now, 4?
>>39930126Ya, I think 4 started on the 1st
>>39918470TO ALMOND OF CLINTON TENNESSEEI just finished purchasing your super duper special Christmas gifts. I'm sorry it took forever, but I still have more stuff to throw in. It should be shipped out in a few days.
>>39925312The maple tree that all Canadians draw their power from grows stronger>>39927182I want (read: need) one
>>39930099Yo you get my ship out email today? Mike38p
>>39922428Who's your target?
>>39930688Tony in I think it was Minnesota.
>>39931073I enjoyed it it took like a week to pick up from my post office bc the joke you put in the name, I'm waiting to post pics for Christmas, also where did you get that polish spam stuff?
>>39931073I'll also have to wait to test out that tent I've got a foot of snow outside now
>>39922251Jesus man i was gettin spooked you were a no show. Anyways. Sending out your package after work this morning so sometime around 11. I really hope you like it. And im m e g a sorry for the delay
Anyone figured out the 5th challenge for the krypto challenge? This is day three of trying to figure it out
>>39931210It's no problem my man I was a little late myself. Hoping for a nicely maymay'd box under my tree this year.
>>39927182Holy /k/ube I want one so bad.
>>39931166You didnt put your real last name on your application lmao all I had was “Tony” and your address.I got the spam stuff from Ivan from Kommandostore in a care package or whatever he was calling his random box o’goodies, I was scared to eat it because of the “pork blood plasma” in it lol, I’m sure the same stuff is in American spam too, just not listed. Glad you liked it, sorry I forgot to meme your package, if I can scrape up some dollarydoos I’ll try to send you another small package. I haven’t even tried my tent like that out yet lol, been too cold and muddy here too, but the material feels pretty nice and I really like that it had the sealeant and patch kit with it too. I hope you like the tent, I thought you might since you said you liked outdoors stuff and didn’t have one for yourself. I’m pretty sure it is blackout capable if you have the cover on so you can hide Innawoods and not have to be super light conscious while in it.
>>39931166Oh, also about the polish spam, I’m pretty sure Ivan told me it was something they modeled into stalking as tourists delight or something.
>>39931858REEEEEE AUTOCORRECT! S.T.A.L.K.E.R* as in the vidya I own but stopped playing after wandering around for 30 minutes and then getting btfo by an anomaly Kek
>>39931166Oh, sorry for being a faggot and posting 9001 replies, but have big boss send me your real last name so I can send it to you and not have it held up at the post office again. I’ll meme the inside though so your grandma doesn’t think your going to hell. Kek
Van from Ohio! Your package is being delivered today. Just a heads up
>>39931275The 5th challenge needs a key. You can go back and look at all the other puzzles. Do so and see if anything stands out.
>>39931872kek Its Siebert, im glad none of them saw the one i sent to some Florida anon
BM from FL, I'll be finishing putting your package together today and mailing it out either today or tomorrow. I hope that you like everything!
>>39931900Thank you sir! Can't wait to open it on Christmas!
I got the key and decoded the 5th puzzle, but the password doesn't seem to be working. tried all upper, all lowercase, first letter capitalized, nothing seems to work.
After seeing my package that came in today my nogunz girlfriend decided to sign up but I think she made an error on our address. She has the email with the answers she put... Does she just need to reply back with the corrected answers? Our zipcode ends in 20 and she put 14 (her old zipcode).
>>39932702just email big boss
>>39932702Please email me on the matter and we'll get it sorted!
>>39932689Oh god there was a typo in the password in the database. No wonder you guys were having such a hard time. It's since been corrected. To be clear, the password listed in the decoded message is correct, so if you try it, it should work now.I may need to let my web developer go...pic related.
>>39932738She just sent you the corrected information. Thanks!
>>39932755Haha, I thought I was going crazy. I started plugging in synonyms. I'm in now.
>tfw you want to join military intelligence but you can't figure out challenge 3pls help. do the numbers correspond to letters?
>>39933048The range of numbers used is a big clue
My santa said shipped Monday so it should arrive tomorrow assuming he did a standard post office ship. I'm very excited.
Just got my gift! Incoming autism from Mr K. In Washington.
I hear liquid sloshing around. My Santa either sent me whiskey or a piss bottle. Not a bad haul either way.
>>39934042>>39934083>>39934100That's a whole lotta autism per square inch.
>>39934197It gets better!
That's about it. I really want to open it...
>>39918470Travis in NC, and Naarkerotic in maryland your shit got sent out, sorry it took so long to ship.I hope you fat fucks appreciate it, cost like 50$ apiece to ship your packages.
Monty in Madison. If you are even real. I dont think you are. Your shit is in the mail.
>>39934828Any other memes like this?
>>39932755thank god, i was driving myself crazy. can't wait for the next part!
BM in FL, your package is on its way. Its nice and heavy, with a good length and girth. Apart from that descrptuon, its in perfectly discreet packing with no memery. I hope you enjoy everyrhing.
>>39937515>>39934456God damnit I'm so impatient... I just want to open it already.
It won't hurt if I peek just a little, will it?
>>39937809Dewit, I opened mine and got a bunch of AR parts and a tactical pink dildo!
>>39937937This smug bastard is tempting me so bad. Just tell me what's inside already, you damn memes!
>>39937791>>39937809>>39938078DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OPEN THIS PACKAGE BEFORE DECEMBER 24TH
>>39938461I'm glad that you like the decorations though, I think I got you some things you'll appreciate.
>>39938474Oof, well, I guess that’s that. Mine didn’t say anything about not opening lol.
>>39938461>>39938474AAAAAAAGH FOR CHRIST'S SAKE TELL ME YOU STUPID TWINK COSPLAYER! I'll respect your wishes. I heard the liquid inside, what did you send me?
>>39938506It's a blast from the past in soda form, I wouldn't worry about it.
>>39938506It's a full mason jar of my cum. I checked for aids a couple years ago and got neg so you're fine to drink it.
>>39938532>a few years agoI had a sensible chuckle.
Baws check your email I want to do another one but the site won’t let me sign up!
SG in Statesville I'm just getting all of the pieces together for you, they're coming in the mail either today or tomorrow.
Caleb of ohio thanks for the box. Im at work right now but my fiencèe is very concerned.
>>39941238She doesn't know I signed up for se/k/ret santa or what /k/ so I'll have some splaining to do tonight.
>>39941238Who would marry a guy who can’t spell.
>>39941250Also how ya gonna marry someone you don’t communicate with? You seem like you stuck a ring on the first girl to touch your peepee OR you are underagedb& and didn’t want to mention living with yo mom.
>>39941278No I told her I was doing a secret santa just didn't go into detail. She's not as interested in firearms as I am and not nearly as autistic so I don't feel the need to talk about /k/ with her. Just like she has hee own interests that I don't find intesting my self. And no sorry I don't live with my momI won't marry my fiancée until I could support her myself.
Kes in the Dougler province,Package will arrive Monday, was scheduled to be there Friday but FedEx was slow, hope you like the penguin tape!
>>39941364Anon please be smart don't set yourself up for divorce rape. You can live and have kids with that women just don't bring the state into your lives.anon pls be smart about this.

>target asks for no clothes>send him a box of my old milsurp clothes that I don't likeOverlord tier btw
>>39941952I left it vague because i really didnt care what i got. The wind meter was perfect used it today at a match.. The candy was good, the flashlight is great, i actually just ordered 2 more. The condoms are a little snug but came in useful last night, tender girl balked at the dog dong.
>>39941250>>39941238Don't worry I didn't put any weird or NSFW in there
>>39941952I never saw that thread, and if i had, i would have said, a wind meter, and carrot curyMarry xmas i hope you got as good as you gave.
>>39941432Oh shit, I know I will dog. Don't know if you got yours yet, but your second box is coming along nicely. It may arrive after christmas, and if so I am deeply sorry about that.
Digital Apollo from Ohio, hope you enjoy your dragoon dildo. In all seriousness, Merry /K/ristmas. I don't think I went heavy on the memes, but they should be all sfw.
