(127) Call Log (3-26 19:40) from LL-TERMINAL43

The following release notes from the update states:

March 26, 2014 [ttr-alpha-g6dd31e9]
• Issued recall on Trolley-bots

What happened in the update was that Doctor Surlee forgets to turn off the Trolley-bot's debug mode and asks Sir Max to deactivate them. Then Doctor Surlee faxes a blueprint of The Manufacturing Machine to Sir Max at his house, but then Sir Max says that a Telemarketer (Cog) was the one who installed the fax machine. Because of that, Doctor Surlee tells him to unplug everything at his house until he can get there.


When the update was around, the notifications can only appear in these Trolley games where Cogs (formerly known as "Trolley-bots") are present.

In Toontown Rewritten, Doctor Surlee manufactured "Trolley-bots" for Robot Thief, then later dubbed them Cogs as they invaded the Toon Council Presidential Elections to which it became Doomsday.

When the Toontown community pieced together all the debug messages in the correct order (with the help of community manager, Sir Max), it formed two sentences.

"Method used is the same as last time
All Records Expunged, Further Investigation Will Be Necessary

How the template works

This template uses <choose></choose> and <option></option> to randomly choose a message from the 16 available options.

The output for all that code is put inside NotificationquoteLegacy001 to imitate how Toontown notifications look within the game (and how they looked during this Alternate Reality Game, when Toontown Rewritten was in Alpha).

Yeah. It's a terribly constructed device. An all-in-one machine is never a good idea.
The good or bad of an idea depends on the maker's purpose. It is one thing to undo a mistake, but fate cannot be altered.
