Scratch that -- I figured it out. Devious.

You need to be case-sensitive.

Durn it, I just don't see it. So level 12 contains hints as to whom to phone? I am going to need another hint here; should I dissect evil1.jpg, for example? Or should I focus on digits and alphanumerics on phone keyboards..

I-can't-believe-I-am-out-of-ideas-ly yours,

(Just for the record, I am pondering the pattern of dark and light stripes in the evil1.jpg image but have yet to have a clue as to how to make something of *that*)

Remember how you found the solution to level 12...

I do remember, I just can't seem to find anything to apply the various techniques used in Level 12 to anything else found in either level 12 or this level. I manipulated URLs, played 'solitair' on the files, tried to second-guess what word or code you have to send to the phone, etc.

I am pretty much convinced that the one parameter you send to the phone will have be gleaned from somewhere else, just can't find it yet.

*sigh*, this is indeed evil

It's more thinking than finding that you need to do.

Me, I tried all kinds of evil until I ran completely out of ideas. Out of dispair I called Google to the rescue, and lo and behold it gave me a nice useful hint.

Truly evil, let me tell you.

Hint: Don't believe everything you read, especially when they are denying there is more evil.
