I think I've gotten most of the words out of the unaltered data files. I can't make any order where it makes sense. Maybe I need the words from more puzzles or maybe I just haven't found enough in the existing ones.
Hmm... Here's another idea. Maybe the person or thing that made the cube doesn't know much about the western world and the decoding of the cube is a way for this alien entity to learn about our society. There's some cultural significance in some of these. Maybe they've gotten these images and scrambled them with others but don't know how to read it. It'd have to be something REALLY distanced from our world... Like Japan.
Well, at least the tech seems to match.
Just a couple more hours and I'll get some sleep. I'm calling in "sick" tomorrow. So, it's shouldn't be a big deal. As long as I sleep soon, I'll be fine.
