The "Do Not Disturb" sign is not on the door on JKR's site at present, but at this point, it seems that only people accessing the site from Europe and Asia can access what's behind the door. (Try the UK version.)
Complete instructions (including screenshots) immediately appeared in our comments section; instructions are now behind the link below (as for screenshots, well, we're saving you some surprise....). Don't click unless you want to be spoiled!
