Now we are famous

Hey all,

just looked on the blackbeard connection site, we got listed in their 'prikbord' ; translated :

The Quadrancy exist in United Kingdom


an attentive player ` real Quadrancy have found on Internet. For us The Quadrancy component of the project are. In United Kingdom they exist therefore real. By the language barrier they understand not entirely what is to the hand in the Netherlands there. Panic. They know not well what they must do. Reassuring responses from the Netherlands have been meanwhile posted.

Funny, if I read back our posts, we have been worried indeed ...

Found it :)

Hi everybody, think we are being fooled :)

People who are actually involved in the TBBC search, found our site and confirmed it is a game. Pjotr directed us to a Dutch article about the project. There are connections to Blackbeard, the history is correct, though a lot has been added for the fictional hunt. The writer must have read about The old-old Quadrancy families from the past, and used it in the online game experience. Maybe we have been a bit naive ;) to think really something is going on. As we know it would not be the first time, we remember there have been 'criminals' calling themselves The Quadrancy in the past.

All well, enjoy the search in the Netherlands! Treasure hunting is a great thing, and when it is sure you will find 50.000 Euro... What more motivation do you need?! Curious whether it will also be one day in England...

it's been a while

Hey all,

it were busy weeks in the office and because I and most of you didnt see much happening on www.the blackbeard connection .com , no action had to be taken. I have registered myself (actually a dutch mobile friend here at the sea) and it seems they are talking about the old-old Quadrancy... Where our name actually comes from. We heard rumours the families are still active, maybe, maybe not, though the Blackbeard Connection seems to know more about them then we do... How they know they are active?

Again a piece ;

De Quadrancy onderhoudt duistere contacten en breekt in op computers. Digitaal zijn ze ijzersterk en nauwelijks te verslaan. Ze onderscheppen op dit ogenblik berichten van The Blackbeard Connection en breken in op de computer van Interpol die weer verbonden is met de computer van het politiebureau in de Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam. Zo kunnen ze meekijken met het verzoek van Gaia om het dossier van haar vader te kunnen bekijken.

translated by misses Babel Fish ;

The Quadrancy maintain dark contacts and burgle on computers. Digitally is hardly cover them ijzersterk and. They intercept on this moment report of The Blackbeard Connection and burgle on the computer of interpol which is linked with the computer of the police station in the Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam. Thus they can look with with the request of Gaia the file of its father be able examine.

If you read a bit through the computerized 1:1 translation, you see The Quadrancy is messing with them. BAD luck they are then, TBBC should not have gone as public as they did! Think we should stay in silence.... For the record... We are another Quadrancy looking for treasures... A nice one... not evil ;)
