Yeah he has posted this stuff before.

It's actually a password protected zip file :)

If I recall this correctly when he did this before the file in the zip
archive was itself a zip archive ("my project for intrvw.jpg" in this
case) which contained some very shoddy code that did nothing much. In
effect he is using the post and it's attachment as offline file
storage. The file names "stuff_for_future_intw.jpg" and "my project
for intrvw.jpg" is a bit of a giveaway here.

Cant be bothered to grind the password this time :)
