Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]!
Be sure to read the WebmasterWorld Terms of Service (link at bottom of page), and the welcome page linked above - Personal URL drops are not allowed here, and I imagine a moderator will remove yours shortly. However, the most common reason for what you are seeing is that your site is new, has few incoming links, has not been deep-crawled yet, and only appears due to what we call Google's "freshbot". These "fresh" listings are unstable until your site gets deep-crawled and is listed in the monthly index.
The best way to get and keep Google's attention is to get plenty of incoming links from well-ranked related-topic sites using relevant link text. A listing in the Open Directory Project (dmoz.org) is a great way to get into just about all important search engines and stay there.
Do a site search (link at top of page) here on WebmasterWorld for "everflux", "freshbot", "my site dropped/disappeared", etc. for a lot more info on why you are experiencing problems.
You are still announcing your domain (by telling what to search for). I suggest removing that too. Ironic that you take pains to discourage people from inspecting your source code (with a kind of challenge on view source), yet you announce your domain in what is arguably one of the most dangerous places on the web for such things...
In addition to what jdMorgan said, after having looked at your code:
1. Most likely, google is only seeing your home page because it is a frameset with an empty noframes section. To rank your other pages, remove the frame set. I may be wrong, but the only justification I see for the frame set is a mis-guided attempt to hide your code from competitors. Really, you can't do it anyway. And, the cost of your attempt is to seriously harm the seo potential of your site. Google does not penetrate frame sites well. It will follow links in the noframes, but with a severe PR penalty for the child pages.
OK, in that case, take a deep breath and relax... :)
The first time your site was deep-crawled was either early January, or maybe just this week. Google has not had time to recognize your site fully, and probably has not yet seen any of your incoming links. You are probably only showing up in Google because the freshbot has picked you up and lists you for a few days at a time.
107 hits from the deepcrawler is a good sign. The results of these hits will show up in late February and not before, if the usual pattern holds.
Get more solid incoming links, work on content, and don't sweat getting banned unless you are violating one of Google's published no-no's - See their "Information for Webmasters" pages. It is not easy or common to get penalized or banned by Google. In very rare cases, new Webmasters take very bad advice and manage it, but it's rare.
After several years, I've found that I'm a little better at writing decent content, doing some server-side tricks with Apache server modules, and doing "lite" search engine optimization. The one skill I have really developed, though, is the "chill skill". It's really tough at first, but work on that one, too! :) (One of the best pieces of advice posted here by GoogleGuy was, "Go outside, enjoy the day." - Advice meant to say that the Google update was not going to start that day. I took that advice, and appreciated it.)
