Hey guys, I knew this was the right team to pull together to solve this puzzle. Go over to joblo.com and there is a viral marketing scheme the Tron guys put together using a code sent in an image. Let's crack it! Come back here with your progress, lets work on this together. Looks like it is an image map to me.

Decoded with what I have, I can be reasonably certain it says "Flynn lives"

Two characters were missing, the I and the S. It's just a table, the you select the row and column for a character based on the codes at the bottom.

That'll do just fine.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to avoid a joke regarding "A Christmas Story".
