Please enter your PIN# for assistance.

The current Downloads page is an ATM-themed source for official Homestar Runner things:

Page Title: $2.00 Service Charge!!

Contents

[edit] Easter Eggs

Secure card it is not
  • Clicking on the "$" button brings up Current balance is 0.00 dollars. Clicking on "0.00" will bring up a draggable credit card (registered to Lem Sportsinterviews). Clicking on the upper left corner of that card will reveal the backside of it, as well as the PIN. Inserting the card, then entering the PIN (5675) will unlock a secret section of Homsar Quotes Pack.
    • Or, if you set the screen forward as if you were going frame by frame, you don't need the pin or to click on the 0.00.
  • In the songs list, clicking on the names of The Skate Party, DaVinci's Notebook, and They Might Be Giants takes you to their respective websites.

[edit] Trivia

  • If you type in the wrong PIN, the text reads, "Wrong Pin#!! I bet you stole this card!" Notably, this will happen as soon as you enter a wrong digit, rather than after the fourth digit is placed.
  • The reflection on the screen of the ATM is the same as the Corpy NT6 email menu.
  • The back of Lem's card reads:

This is a magnificent card.
Superfied Credit Union is
THE NAME in magnificence.
Of crads, at least. I mean cards.
PIN#:5675

  • There is also another version of the downloads page, available at downloads.html. There is a white border around the ATM, the ATM is smaller, and the Strong Bad clock link leads to the first set of Homestar desktop icons.

[edit] Remarks

  • The "NEW!" sign has remained on the Graphics Menu button since shortly after the email "army" (January 7, 2004).
  • The phrase "PIN#" is an example of RAS syndrome, due to the "N" already standing for "Number".
  • The "exit" button links to only Main Page 7.
  • If you click on The Skate Party, it will bring you to a GeoCities site, which is no longer available. This is because Yahoo! shut down GeoCities worldwide in 2009 and later Japan in 2019.

[edit] Inside References

[edit] Real World References

  • The homester.html file name is a reference to Napster, a carryover from the Oldest Downloads Menu which directly referenced the service in its interface.
