    I hope to have that done on Monday.

    Both sites will share the same interface once you're "inside" - provided by SpyTech - in their corresponding colors.

    There will also be banner ads, like a "Sparrow Dress Shirts and Collars" ad that changes to a SpyTech ad once you've logged in.

    Personally, I'm partial to BLU... but I figured I'd get RED out of the way since BLU's site looks more web 2.0. RED's site was designed to look more like it had been designed in 1998, and updated only once since then. :) BLUs will be more flashier and corporate looking.

    Sent to that email address:

    Dear Reliable Excavation Demolition (R.E.D.),

    I am glad to hear you are hiring! I happen to be well-trained in explosives and demolitions myself. Most of my work involves launching Single Tactile Inhibiting Collaborative Krushing Yellow (S.T.I.C.K.Y.) Bombs onto walls and detonating them. Unfortunately, my previous company mined in the region of some dangerous animals, and we were all issued standard Personnel Important Protection Enabler (P.I.P.E.) bombs to defend ourselves and our fellow workers. This has not alleviated stress on the job, and many people - unfortunately, myself included - have taken to drinking excessive amounts of liquor. For crying out loud, last week Barry, my Scottish friend, got a piece of rock shrapnel in his eye. The man has to wear an eyepatch - like some sort of pirate!

    I hope that your facilities will be much safer. I look forward to getting in contact with you.

    This is amazing, it looks like valve-quality viral advertising. They should've pulled this shit before release. Keep it up plz!

    Just to clarify, because I don't want to mislead anyone, but *I* am the author of those pages.

    As I posted on the Steam forums:

    "I don't really know what I'm going to do with these yet. They'll be no ads on these sites. At least, not -real- ones. I'm trying to make these fun, edgy, and community based.

    I'm smitten with the design of Team Fortress 2, and these sites are my love letters to Valve."

    I've got an overwhelming amount of ideas for these sites, but I'm taking it one step at a time - piece by piece. Kind of like elaborate online sketchbooks.

    I actually thought it was Valve's viral marketing. Very nicely done.
