The computer scientist's assistant is late at work once again, trying to once again decode their bosses directions for the day. Under meetings, the boss has listed only a single meeting:

URGENT: asfto1eoenz 12:30pm in Get me to mst3enk for a lt3eh meeting

We're out of cfto1eore

He has been ranting about how his new venture will make it big, and he will finally be able to hold a title other than computer scientist.

Unfortunately, the boss is keeping the cards close to their chest so you are stuck trying to figure out who they would be meeting with tomorrow at 12:30 and arranging the boss's transportation.

Where do they need to go?

Edit: 2023 03 24

Turns out on the ground you find a sticky note that was hanging onto the note originally:

Woops I mean Mt3eo Pto1eok.
Get cfto1eoer or pfto1eoer jto1eok.

    $\begingroup$ The number of letters from zotfsen makes me think of some kind of numerical substitution, but I'm not getting anywhere with it. $\endgroup$ Mar 19 at 4:31
  • $\begingroup$ Is it deliberate that you have cfto1eore in the main puzzle, but cfto1eoer in the edit? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It is indeed deliberate. Gonna be kinda funny after the puzzle is solved... $\endgroup$ Mar 26 at 14:07
  • $\begingroup$ The repeating groups t3e and o1eo look like a big clue, but I have no idea what if anything they reference. $\endgroup$ Apr 1 at 0:45
