Noticed Something on The Hex Code Numbers on Echo Website


#1

While looking at the hex numbers ( i think they’re called that, don’t quote me on it lol) I noticed that certain ones are in bold, and using my iPhone it registers as a number to call. Any reason why there is specific numbers in bold?


#2

Here’s the numbers I managed to find that are in bold:

00262626 25252559 34158917 24882196 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 07223298 01073800 00541290 77435713 86617172 97999313 89918597 09650549 02842385 01080089 00037880 08388006 40188442 38844458 50188552 38855458 86214886 63688623 96000778 02379896 00440002 01468079 48500094 08008988

I’m a little confused. What page on the echo-64 site??


#4

On this page here : https://www.echo-64.com/?s=Search


#5

I noticed the bold text on my iPhone as well.
I think it’s just the iPhone highlighting what it thinks are possible phone numbers, yet not all 8 digit numbers are in bold.
A riddle, wrapped in a mystery perhaps?


#6

I’m looking on my PC and I don’t see any type in bold. Might be the way your phone is reading the site. I tried visiting the Waking Titan site on my phone and it said the device was not supported, very purposefully.

It’s possible the other websites dedicated to the Waking Titan ARG are not optimized for other devices?


#8

I said the same at the beginning, except if my phone was reading it as a phone number wouldn’t all numbers be callable? There are other numbers on that code that aren’t in bold on the phone. I wouldn’t know about PC though as sadly mines is too slow for anything.


#9

And on waking titan if you request desktop site from your browser it’ll bypass the invalid device page.


#10

Anyways. Just a observation. Who really knows if it’s on purpose or just nothing. Lol


#11

I say on purpose because the page is designed, which means it was anticipated. But you’re right! Requesting the desktop worked. Did you try calling any of the numbers yet?


#12

This has already been solved
Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams


#13

The numbers in bold are the only strings with no letters in them so yeah, IOS is trying to identify them as a phone number. That’s all


#14

If it was intended to be bold one way to tell for sure is check page source for HTML formatting such as < b >.


#15

This happens on mobile devices because the strings of pure digits are interpreted as phone numbers, without any additional markup. If you click one of those “00000…” strings, you’ll get a dialog asking if you can’t to call that number.

It’s just that.

Thanks guys! At least now I can focus on other things lol it was just something I thought might’ve been important lol
