This is not porn

www.thisisnotporn.com

And yes, ladies and gentlemen, it really ISN'T porn. It's a strange site, with lots of puzzle solving and shrewd logic. Check it out, try to solve the pages! The first page should be easy enough, but the next starts to get a little hard... then the difficulty escalates. You'll probably need the help of the rest of the Cellar on some of them.

And no, I'm not giving answers, not until you catch up with me that is. :P

That's bizarre. OK I get the second page you have to cut and paste and it's some kind of picture but can't work out what. Is there any point to this website?

I'm not sure. I haven't gotten far enough to find any point to the site yet. From what I've heard the person that made the site is young, but really smart.

An oracle predicted me
A future king tied me
Say my name to clear your path

If that's a riddle the answer is the something knot. It was a knot that coudn't be untied. The person who untied it was supposed to rule the world or something. Alexander the Great cheated and cut it. Then proceeded to rule the world.

Don't remember the name of the knot, but it had one.

I got a D on that paper I wrote in college. Can you tell?

Google says it's the Gordian knot.

And Jaguar, that's a good catch, finding the riddle in the ascii text. I was looking for something in the ascii text, but it formats wrong on my screen. I didn't see it until I viewed the source.

My popup killer kept killing a popup for the first page. When I disabled the killer, a popup saying "help I am drowning" appeared. It only displays for a fraction of a second, then closed automatically.

Don't know what any of this means.

Yeah, there's the riddle, and the quickly disappearing "Help I'm drowning!!!" window, and the string of numbers that the audio file keeps repeating... and yet still ASIA AWAITS... :P

Well unless it's some kind of odd capitalisation or something other than them both being the same (user and pass) we're going to ahve to dig a tad deeper. Maybe the popup represents one half the and riddle the other? Not sure.

Doesn't seem to. Alexander the Great lived by the sword, but died by disease.

it has to be there for the reason, I know how people who make things like this think, I've made similar little pizzles myself, it means something.

i've tried things like

diebythesword
gordianknot

but no luck.

Yeah, it's so ironic that the movie company that tries to embrace wholesome values is the most ruthless in Hollywood. :) You're talking about a company that sent a memo to an animator who praised old WB cartoons to never do it again, or he'd be gone. Those who want to work at Disney, don't know the place well enough. :)
