The scariest thing (STIES) site has been updated with a new chat log. It appears that Josh missed the memo and was not in the chat room at the correct time, but the mysterious person on the other end was and he really needs that book. He also promises to upload a picture of Josh's dad as a showing of good faith, but at this time I can't seem to find a new printout or picture on the STIES site. So while this is an update, it doesn't really offer us too much in the way of clues. Obviously that book is important to something and I'm going to guess that the blacked out and circled words that we can see on the page are important. Maybe there are other clues hidden throughout the book...
I guess the 3D 5O (3 down, 5 over) in regards to a new chat appearing based on the calendar on hook, line and minker needs to be read a little differently. When those instructions were first posted a couple days ago I had determined that the 26th would be when we'd see a new chat, but since this new one appeared yesterday, the 16th, I realized that I've been reading the code wrong. 3D starts in the upper left of the calendar, whether there is a day there or not and moves down to the third row (week of Dec 12th) then the 5O is 5 over including Dec 12th, which lands us exactly on December 16th, which is when the chat was recorded. Hopefully from here on out if there are any more codes I'll be able to correctly pinpoint when the chat logs are going to come through.
