All the lights on the Christmas trees throughout the castle are controlled through a remote server.

We can shuffle the colors of the lights by connecting via dial-up, but our only modem is broken!"

For anyone old enough to remember dial-up modems, the sound of the dial-up handshake sequence will likely send a chill down your spine. For you young whipper-snappers that don't, consider yourselves lucky .

There's not much technical skills necessary to get through this challenge. Listen to the handshake sequence, and try to emulate it by clicking the words on the piece of paper in time with the handshake sounds on the other end of the line.

The correct steps:

  1. Click the handset to get a dial tone
  2. Dial 756-8347
  3. At the appropiate times (based on what you heard in the example handshake) press
    • baa DEE brrr
    • aah
    • WEWEWWrwrrwrr
    • beDURRdunditty

A voice on the phone will say that the lights have been updated, and the lights on the Christmas tree will change.
