The blog post '''''Daily Alpha Update: -- --- •-• ••• • | -•-• --- -•• •''''' was posted by '''Sir Max''' on ''January 31, 2014'' at 02:00 PM Toontown Time.<ref>[[News_Blogs_(2014)#Daily_Alpha_Update:_--_---_.E2.80.A2-.E2.80.A2_.E2.80.A2.E2.80.A2.E2.80.A2_.E2.80.A2_.7C_-.E2.80.A2-.E2.80.A2_---_-.E2.80.A2.E2.80.A2.E2.80.A2|Wiki blog post]] • [https://www.toontownrewritten.com/news/item/93/daily-alpha-update---------------------- Official blog post] • [http://www.mmocentralforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=350428 MCF]</ref>
 
 
This isn't the normal encryption expected on the 26th day of the month. No blueprint was found here, just [[Sir Max]] trying to avoid [[Toontown Rewritten Team #Technical|Fat McStink]]'s "Improvaganza!" by speaking in Morse Code. Sir Max doesn't know why he was using Morse Code and didn't know how he even learned it in the first place. Fat McStink saw what Sir Max said anyway, and invited everyone but Sir Max to "The Greatest Party in the Tooniverse".
 
 
Because Fat McStink did not invite Sir Max to his greatest party, this led Sir Max to end up using some [[cannons]] he found to crash the party. Then he fine-tuned the the trajectory on the first cannon, applied a bit of anti-explosive to the second, then shielded himself using a mold of pure titanium. Just as Sir Max was about to hop in that cannon, Fat McStink started praising him for finding his lost party cannons. Fat McStink was so greatful that he allowed VIP access into his party, along with some free fruit from his new game.

The post was encrypted with international [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morse_code Morse Code]. These "dots" and "dashes" are also called "dits" and "dahs" because of the way they sound. The most common distress signal is SOS or 3 dots, 3 dashes, and 3 dots. It was particularly worked on at the MMOCentral Forums.<ref>[http://www.mmocentralforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3999485#post3999485 MCF Decryption]</ref>
 
 
With this automatic [http://morsecode.scphillips.com/jtranslator.html Morse Code Translator], you can turn dashes and dots into plaintext. (The website also has a trainer to help you learn Morse Code.) The only problem with that is this post doesn't really use dots/periods. You can work around this by using [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notepad_(software) Notepad] to replace each "•" with a ".".<ref>
 
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morse_code Morse Code (Wikipedia)] - [http://morsecode.scphillips.com/jtranslator.html Morse Code Translator]</ref>
 
 
First open up Notepad and pull up "Daily Alpha Update: -- --- •-• ••• • | -•-• --- -•• •". Select the text and copy it to your [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipboard_(computing) clipboard] (by either right-clicking and selecting "Copy", or using the shortcut Ctrl+C for Windows or Cmd+C for Mac). Now select Notepad and paste the text from your clipboard (either by right-clicking and selecting "Paste", or using the shortcut Ctrl+V for Windows or Cmd+V for Mac) into Notepad.
 
 
On Notepad's menu bar at the top, select Edit>Replace (the shortcut is Ctrl+H), and then a pop-up window should come up. In the "Find what:" section, plug in "•". In the "Replace with:" section, plug in "." Now click the "Replace All" button to quickly turn all those bullets into dots. It also replaces the bullet in the Release Notes, but if you still have that bullet in you clipboard, you can delete and replace that quickly.
