  1. At the bottom of the thank you page (http://valvearg.com/thankyou/), there are links to a bunch of contributors' steam profiles.  On each of these profiles, there is a bit of binary text.  That binary text is part of a link.  The binary is actually binary of a base64 string.  If you decode that base64, you get a bit of a link.
