    Has anyone else seen this website? It's a viral marketing/ARG made for the upcoming Valve game Portals.


    Here's what I found out so far about it:

    **Spoilers start here**

    First, type 'login', any username you want, and the password 'portals'.

    You're now at a DOS command line prompt. Type 'dir' to see what files are there. Run the program apply.exe using the command 'apply'.

    Answer their (amusing) questions however you see fit.

    At the end, they'll ask for your your UID again. Even after screenshotting my UID and putting it back exactly, it said it was incorrect. Other people on wikipedia said putting it in correctly gives you a camera view of a 'relaxation room'.
    The 'relaxation room' is also accessable by entering the command 'thecakeisalie' instead of 'apply'. 'thecakeisalie' comes from one flashing letter in each question.


    **Spoilers end here.**

    Yeah, it's been up for a month or two. It's pretty funny. I think you've discovered everything there is to discover; at least, that's all I've seen so far.

      I noticed that the UID rotates as it flashes.

        I typed 'user' at the command line and got the same result as 'login'.

        I was very disappointed the guest/guest, root/root, and admin/admin failed.

          The password keeps changing every few seconds as it flashes. Also, I saw something flash up at the bottom of my screen a couple of times...

            Yeah, I think the something on the bottom of the screen is an ascii cake.

                Crap, I thought this was new marketing for Half Life Episode 3.

                  Nope, just a two year old thread that got bumped for no particular reason.
