Are system playing sirens and Charon picking up drop connected?

Time when drop was picked up was probably between this timestamps (GMT+0):
20:27 -!- charon_ [6371b822@gateway/web/freenode/ip.xx.xxx.xxx.xx] has left #ARG  22:39 -!- ferrymancharon [~firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #ARG 23:03 -!- charon_ [6371b822@gateway/web/freenode/ip.xx.xxx.xxx.xx] has joined #ARG
05:35 <L0j1k> the 100Mb file is in the same general area on the el cerrito CD as it is on the el paso ubuntu CD 05:35 < L0j1k> original: ae6acf01526f138da72796172b3073de ./casper/filesystem.squashfs 05:36 < L0j1k> el cerrito: fd638d7d3785bbabb1da3f292385d937 ./filesystem.squashfs 05:37 < L0j1k> gonna finish downloading the 12.04.0 LTS original to diff the two 07:12 <L0j1k> elcerrito.filesystem.squashfs original.filesystem.squashfs differ: byte 314013697, line 1089605 07:50 <L0j1k> first differing byte: 314013697 353 65 07:50 <L0j1k> last differing byte: 418871296 307 260 07:51 <XkeeperLaptop> so about 100m again. 08:10 <L0j1k> btw, for those who don't know their way around dd, here's the command to extract the new .bin: dd if=filesystem.squashfs of=elcerrito.bin bs=1 skip=314013696 count=104857600 2>/dev/null 08:23 <L0j1k> btw i just remembered... i did not check any other md5sum for files on the new ubuntu CD, so there could very well be surprises in other locations on the disk, if anybody wants to md5 against a 12.04.0 LTS desktop 386 disk...

23:14 <nadando> 84728517989977482648881 23:39 <nadando> guessing 84 72 85 17 98 99 77 will xor to PRJMLPL 23:40 <nadando> and 482648887 is the agent code with the matching numbers
Agent number : 482608885
04 26 31 92 46 51 01 friendly code
Agent number : 482608885
84 72 85 17 98 99 77 XOR 04 26 31 92 46 51 01 = 80 82 74 77 76 80 76 = PRJMLPL

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26636688/1AudioTrack.aiff (creepy warning, seemingly random notes, babyvoice i love you we love you forever beautiful / ~ theme of otp22 ~, some music, audio artifacts at ~8:30, sssshhhh noise at the end)
Warning and random tones song
[02:19] Cosmo_Hill NiceLurk this is fucking weird I don't understand the point. Start with a melodic arpeggiator....fine....layer it... fine.... key change....fine...... Then it gets dischordant, intentionally so, then moves up chromatically, then adds unnecessary top notes. It sounds awful!
When we got that baby voice for the first time we were suspicious if that is not just distorted adult voice
[16:50] massospora NiceLurk: http://vocaroo.com/i/s03CLvPn842T -12 halftones. but imho this is female voice [16:51] massospora NiceLurk: i think this can be improved by changing speed and pitch [17:07] massospora NiceLurk: http://vocaroo.com/i/s02C0HYuwi0E -10 halftones, the speed up 50% [17:07] massospora NiceLurk: ...and littlede- noising
It doesnt sound like "our" Audrey from AT&T natural voices demo page: http://www2.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php Especially the accentuation of the AT&T engine is way off. Despite the voice sounds like text2speech the intonation is unusual for such engines. None of the tested produced that great difference between "I love you" and "we love you".
[17:13] latent they actually removed Audrey from that some time around new year's [17:14] latent along with a bunch of other voices
Three artefacts in music at 4:30
Seems random artifacts caused by some glitch during mixing process.
