Nice, I like it when they have "hidden" things on the webpage like that. Certainly a nice easteregg for those who take the time to look.

Oh, and nice text picture in the source code. I like how it's a puzzle you have to solve in order to get a "prize"...the game isn't even out yet and it's already making us think

Nice
Can you type anything else than barnacle and get another concept picture?
Where is the media skin at?

Wow jakUp, no offense but I'd figured that you would've picked up on that by now. That's old news. I remember when everyone at HL2.net was freaking out and hacking Valve's sites to figure out these tests. They were pretty cool. Nice find though . . . .

Yeah the tests are neat. It's a creative way for Valve to mess with the community
My bladder is exploding with excitement. Less than three weeks!!! AAAHHH!!!
