Setlock - Masterpost

To keep track with my own posts and all the theories and deductions about setlock, I started collecting “some” links… omg, what have we done in the past few weeks! ;-)

I pinned this masterpost in my navigation menue with “Setlock” - every update will go there.

As the discussion and deduction continue, make sure to always check the notes for the latest insights. If I should have missed any pivotal theories, I’d be delighted, if you’d drop me a note! :)
