XCCR is rather interesting. First check out the site. Then check out the readme.txt, found in the images directory. It also appears to have some links to New Zealand - the contact on the domain whois is at, and it's hosted in NZ.

Pretty much what's been established so far is that 227664 is a fairly important number - it's the only one that decrements the number in the top left. Entering any other number will eventually show a grid (with holes in sections) at the bottom, which has apparently been getting more filled in, and will randomly ask 'ARE YOU HE?'. If you get to the grid by entering 227664 there's also a flashing cell.

The number at the top centre of the page is apparently a position in the grid, in binary, labelled starting at 01, from top to bottom then left to right. Apparently by being the person to enter 227664 ten minutes after the last successful enter, you are shown a set of keys labelled 1 to 4, pointing in the cardinal directions. By then typing 1 to 4 you can change the binary number at the top, in a way that would be consistant if you were moving a position in the grid. Possibly. Maybe not. It's worth noting that the binary number does not correspond to the flashing square - perhaps that's the goal.

So, as far as a Google search can tell, this puzzle hasn't been solved yet. Good luck. If you've arrived here from a search, you'll want to make sure you're viewing this page.
