Though the site implies using python, here is a site that can be fun for all programming languages
You get a visual clue that you solve by writing code. The code you write is based on the clues and hints they give you. Once you solve it, you can go onto the next puzzle by using the solution from the prior puzzle in a mini-puzzle fashion.
An example might be, you are at http://bob.com/puzzle1.html. You may get a problem who's solution is to strip out z's out vowels to see a message. The message becoming clear text would be a hint to strip out vowels in the url, or some part of the url. Anything in the page is a clue, such as the title, the source code for it, images, sounds, anything.
It is certainly a new twist on these style of puzzle sites, like http://deathball.net/notpron/, which is NOT A porn site.
Update: Please be kind to their servers. Some of the puzzles involve hitting their servers multiple times. Please be kind and space out your requests so that they dont' get bogged down. sleep(10) is your friend.
