[SZLamp.com] Uh....Okay.

I was driven to go to szlamp.com by Mike from Mikekerrigan.com and I'm confused. People have said they've been working on it for a long time, but I've not seen anything about it up to this point. Razz A little help?

Edit by Addlepated - Modified the subject line for clarity.

Uh....Okay.

EDIT: OK, it seems like an ARG or a timewaster.. When you play a little monopoly, you get to a flash movie with a random text and a door.. When you enter the door, you get a random page..

EDIT2: When you view the source of the page with the flash, you get
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
<!-- `Oh words, words and more words,` thought Alice, `if I never ever see another word, it will be a day to soon.` -->
Hmm.. What's that supposed to mean?

I'm not sure where the monopoly is, but did anyone else notice the little icon in the corner of the main page? When I first went there, it was a butterfly. Now it's a very light gray and underlined pi symbol.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
If you click on it, you get a new window popping up: there's a row of images across the top (stone-thing, butterfly, 8-ball, penny, spider), it's titled "If I had only known, I would have been a locksmith." (Einstein quote), and it asks for a password. I tried a couple - "lookingglass", "alice", "wonderland", "einstein", "nagasaki", "password" - but none of 'em worked.

Haha.. The password cracking was easy..... Javascript Rolling Eyes

And OMG, you can sign up. Click the now-coloured butterfly.

but after signing up, I got the following message:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
A small request...

Therefore I hereby request that you do not reveal any answers that you personally find upon your journey, because programming a robot requires no particular skill and accomplishes nothing that hasn't already been done. Instead I ask you to teach the robot to think for itself, and although it's somewhat fuzzy this is the one rule I formally ask you to adhere to.

It's simple, if you don't agree to the rule, then don't visit my home, don't play the game and don't come here anymore. This is one rule not mean't to be broken. Innovators are welcome cheats are not. If you are caught cheating or breaking a rule then you will simply be banished. My eyes and ears are everywhere in more places than you can ever imagine. If you step over the line then I guarantee you I will find out about it, at some point in time and perhaps later you may regret it. If you agree to my request then click the green tick otherwise click the red cross.

So I'll just shut up for now.

EDIT: I don't think this is violating my "contract", but after signing up, there will be a butterfly and a quote.. if you click the name of the person, who have once said that, you get a google search on The Butterfly Effect.. Hmm.. D'ya think it's connected in any way?

... Actually, it seems like there's multiple passwords. I hit 'view source' and found

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
password == setup


Which gave me

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
So, I've decided to take my work back underground...to stop it falling into the wrong hands.
~Dr. Lawrence Angelo

password:setup


And another link off that...

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
"Dr. Lawrence Angelo" led to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104692/ , which is the page for the 1992 version of The Lawnmower Man. Angelo appears to be one of the characters from the movie.


... And after signing up, there's a request to not share solutions with other people, apparently. Heh.

Yeah and actually, it seems that the password is changing all the time. Look for some lines similar to these:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!-- //
function checker() {
if ( document.secret.password.value == 'superuser' ) {
document.secret.submit();
} else {
alert('That was the incorrect password, please try again!');
return false;
}
}
// -->
</SCRIPT>

It's in the top, and I don't even bother to explain where the password is in that snippet Wink

web trail puzzles discussion board

For discussions about szlamp, mikekerrigan, House of Zen, xander4anya, and other similar "web trail" puzzles, I recommend the Quest4Treasure BB forums. Nothing against using unfiction, but those games are really not ARGs. You'll find threads going back to 2002 for some of those games!
