Dear Ms. Sanchez,

Under the Texas Public Information Act, Tex. Gov’t Code §552.001 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to obtain copies of all records that pertain to the shooting at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday, 24 May 2022. This would include, but isn't limited to, incident reports, police narratives, 9-1-1 call recordings, dispatch radio recordings/transcriptions, CAD tickets, police body camera footage, CCTV/surveillance footage, and any other images, documents, videos, sounds, or other media created by or tendered to your agency in regards to this incident.

I am also requesting a copy of any department policies, memos, or training material that would pertain to the response of an active shooter situation, a mass casualty event, or a school shooting.

Given the obvious and overwhelming worldwide public interest in this incident, I am requesting a waiver of all fees. The disclosure of the requested information will contribute significantly to the public's understanding of both the incident and the response. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.

Because I'm out of state, I am requesting that records be furnished to me digitally.

The Texas Public Information Act requires that you “promptly produce” the requested records unless, within 10 days, you have sought an Attorney General’s Opinion. If you expect a significant delay in responding to this request, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies of the requested records.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

Thank you for considering my request.

Truth is, again, funnier than any parody I could ever write.

What a fucking meme.

alright well....

Trying 10 different hash algorithms, using another sliding window to search through longer-than-32-character hashes... No results.

I can't imagine they're salting these hashes. I guess the next step is to run the game in a virtual machine where I can inspect the execution state at all times.

Of course, I'm doing all of this, probably just to load the model once in gm_construct, say "Neat!" and then go back to League
