Investigation See also Message Desk/Investigation.

The current Message Desk number is 202_204_2303.

Message desk can be accessed also by using Agent Code 6873 on 202-999-3335. Occasionally, a call to the agent system (either before or after entering an agent code) will result in a random redirect to the Message Desk number.

The Message Desk is an actual human being who answers the phone. Usually he only responds to a limited number of prompts, then returns a canned response. So far most of these prompts have been numbers, but there have also been Keep Alive sessions that allowed us to ask full-text questions (or QX) and have them forwarded to the mysterious forces behind OTP. There was also the Message_desk_OS_prompts call in which he was asking us to supply commands to what appeared to be some sort of IBM-like system. Sometimes callers have managed to get a few sentences out of the Message Desk about his job or even have conversations once they have built up a rapport with him.

In February 2014, Gwraspe asked for the MD guy's name. He responded that we can call him "Troy".

The message desk first appeared on Thanksgiving evening in 2012. It is not always available; so far it has been available evenings United States time. As of the end of April 2014, Message Desk has been unavailable. According to a QX response this is due to "budgetary constraints".

Current Status

26JUN14 - Message Desk has been down since the end of April. According to a QX answer from J (QX44), Message Desk staff have been furloughed due to budgetary constraints. When you call MD currently, you will hear ringing and a message saying "this number is currently unavailable".

3/06/2013 04:50 (UTC) When you call the MD, you get a long sequence of beeps and boops. Wait through all of them and the Message Desk will pick up.

1/20/2013 02:47 (UTC) Playing tones. See Message desk tones

4/8/2013 unknown time (UTC) Plays a short sequence of beeps and silence.


On March 8, 2013, the Message Desk explicitly said "I only accept 0-9 A-F *#".

Most of the time the Message Desk only takes numbers. Once given a number, the operator responds with one of these:

  • Another number (meaning unknown)
  • A location (possibly airport locations)
  • A direction to call a different office location
  • A comment that we should already have that information from 'the book'

Overview of message desks

Message desk is a general term for a call-handling service used by a business that does not have it's own office to handle business or customer calls. They can work 24/7 if hired to do so, and simply follow the instructions given by the hirer on how to process phone calls. For example "The Message Desk provides your business with a virtual receptionist whenever you need it.

All calls will be answered in your company name and dealt with according to your instructions. Messages are taken and delivered to you in your chosen format, email, SMS text, fax or call forwarding."

(down for around a week)

MD returned on December 6th; we can reach it using a new number (202 204 2303). We got this number from zhazha's return call.


  • On the night of December 13 the message desk had 4 calls to the 202 204 2303 number which transferred to someone who answered the call "Operations" instead of connecting to the MD. At the same time the agent system started playing the alarm sounds from before
  • first call, by zhazha: "i called the 2303 number, and MD answered with "operation" instead of message desk, i gave him a number, he said "operation" again, then hung up on me"
  • Second, xkeeper's recording of his call:
  • DTMF decodes to 444453433 ... ### ... # (... = long pause)
  • 3rd call, also xkeeper:
  • 4th and last contact with OG for the night, zhazha: called, was more prepared to reach him. Asked for a directory. he said "you'll have to call back later for that". but in a way that made it sound like he was just making shit up because he had no idea what I was talking about
  • December 15:
Xkeeper4400_	Message desk took me to operations...
crash_demons	unrelated site though
Adah	is it the stoned guy again?
Adah	oh man
Xkeeper4400_	He doesn't seem stoned this time.
Xkeeper4400_	Just... eh
crash_demons	seriously, if you get Operations, try to find out what the company name is or something useful.
Xkeeper4400_	idk.
Adah	hahaha
Adah	Ask him about the book
Adah	seriously
Xkeeper4400_	I asked him for a directory
nadando	ask him about ABISM
Xkeeper4400_	he had no idea, but gave me another number
Adah	zhazha did that already and he just sounded confused
Adah	hahaha
Adah	what's the number?
Xkeeper4400_	"seven ... fourty twenty"
Xkeeper4400_ around the end, 20sec away

Message desk orders

December 23, 2012 Adah and Nadando figured out how to order products from the Message Desk.

See Message Desk/Investigation/Orders for details.

List of orders

See Message Desk/Investigation/Orders.

Return calls

Some callers are asked for a return number, if they give a number they are called back by the message desk. Please DO NOT give out your personal phone number to anyone unless you are fully accepting any personal liability and consequences upon yourself. Your number could be passed on to unknown parties for any purpose. It is not known why a number is needed or what it can be used for in the future.

"The Book"

UPDATE: Book is most likely Global Response Codes

Scant information has been given by the call handler about the book. It is 6 pages long, contains at least the number responses for 7, 43, and 1965. Number 43 is on page 3 of the book. The book is needed to find the message desk number, and without the book it would not be possible to dial. If we stated that the book is lost, the response was that it cannot be true, otherwise we would not be able to reach the message desk at all.

Dialing From A Blocked Number

NA_Fury dialed from a blocked a number a few times. After a while it eventually started playing a "please deposit 5 cents" message. If he dropped a 5 cent redbox tone, it would accept it, ring a few times, then disco. Theory is that PM just set up a rule in his PBX to do that for blocked calls as opposed to forwarding it. NA_Fury's line class stayed the same, so it is definitely on the PBX side.

[00:57]	Moose-Alini	i tried 17
[00:57]	Moose-Alini	he said Athens

[01:14]	Ymgve	"Researcher's notes: When the irc monkeys discovered the live relay, they initially approached with carefulness, but within minutes they had degenerated into trolling and taunting the operator at the other end of the line"

[01:30]	OTP-Decoder	Oh, another thing I should mention. And it's kind of one of my theories. I think these cities he's referring to are offices.
[01:32]	OTP-Decoder	Because with 3 or 4 of the calls I made, instead of just echoing back a city name; he would say "you're gonna have to call %city name%"

[01:39]	Vargomax	sounded like "Buckhorn" but that's not a city

[01:52]	Moose-Alini	he said the number 43 is on the third page of the book
[01:52]	crash_demons	Moose-Alini, really sounded like he was talking about the person and a previous call (someone mentioned using their GF's cell. registration lookup might show that)

[01:55]	anonen	i said my book was stolen, he stalled, and said if you had the book you wouldnt call this number!
[01:57]	Moose-Alini	the first time i called he told me i needed to call escondito, the last time i called he called ME escondito

[01:59]	anonen	he just said to me 'if you werent in UK i would trace this call right now' but i can tell you are from the 50hz in the background

Valentine's Day Mixup

February 14th, 2013 the MD seemed to get his numbers mixed up. nadando and ArsenicLupin asked for 355, and got back 18/355410/5066358. Filer called and got 4/457160/2457557. nadando called again and got the same number. Trying to track down a pattern, Adah called and got the same number, but commented "at first he asked me if i meant 345, and then said people had been "calling for 345 all day". ArsenicLupin then called and asked for 345 and got 18/355410/5066358. We concluded that 18/... was the correct answer for 345 all along, and "people had been calling for 345 all day" was a hasty bit of improv used to warn us of the mistake.

Both numbers are valid UTM coordinates, one in Hawaii and the other in Ontario. | IRC log

February 18-19 Tones and Changes

Starting February 18-19th the Message Desk began playing various recordings and tones. The recorded sounds changed twice between 2/18 10:15UTC and 2/19 00:04 UTC. See Message_Desk/Investigation#Message_desk_tones for details.

Shortly afterward, Smugtrio placed another call and got through; see next section.

Long call: OS prompts

5:50 UTC February 19th 2013 Smugtrio placed a message desk call intending to place an order. The call went on for over an hour. Smugtrio was attempting to dictate OS commands to the message desk, who was typing them into his own console.

The Message Desk guy said this about his system:

s: Okay, um, what is that alarm in the background? What does that signify?
m: THAT.. is the monitoring line, that is normally quiet, but it's not today.
s: Okay.. And uh, what does it monitor?
m: It's, it's this stupid system?
s: Ok? (Laughter) What system is that?
m: (Laughter) The thing that I, I mean I dunno, I, I have not dealt with that as much.  I think they've, I think they sometimes I dunno, I don't set this thing up man. (Laughter)
m: There's two lines: that we can dial into for this job, one of them is a modem, one of them is this line that is capable of producing lots of horrible noises.
s: Okay?
m: But normally the other one is just quiet, it's just. its just on uh, this lovely merlin phone here

April 6th, 2013 Equipment Installation

On Saturday, April 6th, Message Desk can be heard in three different call recordings to be installing some heavy piece of equipment in the background. L0j1k asked MD directly about this equipment, and MD replied affirmatively that equipment is being installed, however the specific type of equipment is unknown and would not be revealed by MD. The first recording ( reveals a second person in the room with MD, and the second ( L0j1k is heard asking MD about the equipment, followed by MD excusing himself from his headset in order to do something that sounds like drilling. In the same recording, but with L0j1k's side of the conversation removed (, you can clearly hear the drilling sound as well as another person indistinctly talking in the background. In the fourth recording of the third and final call (, L0j1k asks MD more specific information about the equipment, and MD indicates that a "bunch of black boxes in a 19-inch rack" are being installed, but that they're not for him because he's "not the only one who uses this space".

Recordings when we got MD redirect on agent system

We dont know what trigger that redirect. Seems random. Sometimes when when someone calls agent system for the first time from new number ID first time he gets Agent System and second time MD. (To redirect from Agent System to MoD there is agent number 6360322 found on australian banknote in NY drop 2.) here he answers here he answers here he answers
