    Edit2: and "hell" Is there supposed to be a pattern lol?

    The countdown seems to be counting down to 5 days from now...but the 360's not going to be released for 7 days, odd.
    The common word/position database it uses is here. Each line consists of a word, x, y and color. The client reloads the database once per second via a XMLHttp object and animates the words to their new correct positions.

    If you drag, the word id, new x and y are sent here.

    This is the upload code:
    Code:
    function updateDB(id,x,y){
    	var ajaxOb=initxmlhttp();
    	encodedStr="id="+id+"&x="+x+"&y="+y;
    	var url="/TESTe428sdhv?"+Math.random();
    	ajaxOb.open("POST",url,true);
    	ajaxOb.setRequestHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
    	ajaxOb.send(encodedStr);
    	ajaxOb.onreadystatechange=function(){
    		if(ajaxOb.readyState==4){
    			var response=ajaxOb.responseText;
    			if (response.length>0){if (response == "ok") {updateCounter--;}}
    		}
    	}
    	try{ajaxOb.send(null);}catch(e){}
    }
    and the download code:
    Code:
    function udSlDisp(){
    	var ajaxOb=initxmlhttp();
    	var url="/TEST495jfdqn?"+Math.random();
    	ajaxOb.open("GET",url,true);
    	ajaxOb.onreadystatechange=function(){
    		if(ajaxOb.readyState==4){
    			var response=ajaxOb.responseText;
    			if (response.length>0 && updateCounter==0){ 
    				counter++;
    				var respParts=response.split("\n");
    				var firstLine=respParts[0].split(",");
    				var next_slot=firstLine[1];
    				var tStr="";
    				for(var iDB=0;iDB<slotsArray.length;iDB++){
    					if (dragId != iDB){
    						line=respParts[iDB+1].split(",");
    						if (line[0] != slotsArray[iDB].innerHTML){
    							slotsArray[iDB].innerHTML=line[0]; 
    						}
    						tx[iDB]=line[1]; 
    						ty[iDB]=line[2]; 
    						var lx=parseInt(slotsArray[iDB].style.left);
    						var ly=parseInt(slotsArray[iDB].style.top);
    						if (lx!=tx[iDB] || ly!=ty[iDB]){			
    							needfly=true;
    						}
    					}
    					tStr += tx[iDB] + "," +ty[iDB] + "\n";
    				}
    				if (needfly && !needfly2){fly();}	
    			}	
    	
    			date=new Date();
    			now=date.getTime();
    			if ((now-lastaction)<60000) {
    				window.setTimeout("udSlDisp()",1000);
    				asleep=false;
    			} else {
    				asleep=true;		
    			}
    		}
    	}	
    	ajaxOb.send(null);
    }
    Now that the protocol is known, someone could create a C program using the same database.

    When I checked before, the front page was counting down in 1.5 seconds increment from 406727, which by my calculations is 7.11 days.

    I'd be surprised if it is actually a Microsoft site considering:
    Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat) Server at www.101101000.com Port 80
    I'm guessing a fan site. Actually, a search on the telephone number provided in this post suggests it is the work of one Allen D. Hart.

    EDIT: According to Google, I'm the first person to post the culprit. Do I get a prize?

    On the main http://www.101101000.com/ if you type in certain words different things happen to the globe.

    For instance, type:
    Halo or bungie - The globe turns into a "ring of light" AKA a halo
    I love bees - a heart replaces the globe
    Origen 360 - Ants start crawling on the screen
    revolution - The globe turns red
    Bill Gates - The lines on the globe disappear

    I'm still trying out different words and things but I'm pretty sure this is a Microsoft involved site because everything relates to MS in some way.
