The link that the journal currently sends you to has an embedded .wav file of what I guess is a ticking clock, but for some reason the volume is set to 0. You can only hear it if you view the page source and then paste the URL of the file into your address bar. I don\'t know whether this is intentional or an accident.

It appears that this Journal is NOT OFFICIALLY RELATED to the Watchmen film. In the link I mentioned above, if you click the page source you will see that the Rorschach image is uploaded to type40marketing.com
Go to this website, which describes itself as \"a new internet marketing and promotions company,\" and click on the links page. Rorschach\'s journal is the first link listed, with the text \"Viral pitch to Warner Bros./Zack Snyder regarding forthcoming \'Watchmen\' film.\"
Notice: \"Viral pitch TO...\" sounds like someone is doing this on their own and just hoping Warner Bros. notices and decides to adopt it. Plus an official viral campaign wouldn\'t be this sloppy.

I checked into that stuff out a while ago, danny. I\'m fairly certain you\'re right because the site\'s source is \"staff.theonering.net\", and it stems from the page of one of the admins of that site, Xoanon. I\'m guessing that\'s our man.
Way to draw conclusions. It could be the \"Get Zack Snyder to Contact Me\" thing was trying to get a marketing deal of some sort.

Also if you go to http://staff.theonering.net/xoanon there\'s a brief frame with the words \"...no one cares but me...\" under the RR symbol, and then it redirects you to Rorschach\'s journal.

Well, now he\'s being upfront. If you go there now there\'s a link to printable posters, with this inscription: \"instructions. need to find mask killer. spread the word. print image. place in public place. take photo. email to me.\" I say we do what he says, see what happens, and share the results here.

On the page where you print the pictures the page titles translates as..
FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. SEE YOU AT GUNGA DINER

Gunga\'s Diner is the place where Rorschach sees Dreiberg and Juspeczyk leaving and is also where he waits for messages opposite his mail drop.

I\'m in. Let\'s hang some dang posters and see what happens.
