Hey. Is it April already?

(Later: To put this in context. On April 1st I had a special theme on the site that flipped the logo and titles around so that they were backwards, as well as a bunch of other stuff on the site.)

    No. It’s still March. Your computer’s clock got screwed up by Daylight Savings Time.

  2. Malkara says:

    Lol. At least the comments page is set up right. God. Too many jokes today.

  3. Hal says:

    Y’know, I saw an article once on how to make this happen to people who were sponging off of your wi-fi network. I didn’t understand how to do most of the instructions, however, so I never had a chance to test it. Very clever.

  4. LethalSpoon says:

    Wikipedia’s front page is pretty humorous today. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

  5. Malkara says:

    Did you know?

    … that Richard de Southchurch, Sheriff of Essex, planned to attack London with burning cocks?

    …that Serge Voronoff’s surgical technique of grafting monkey testicle tissue onto human males has some modern supporters?

    You’re right. That’s pretty awesome.

  6. Vegedus says:

    Heh, hadn’t even noticed before now.

  7. Woerlan says:

    Love what you did with the site. Hehe

  8. Thad says:

    Wha? It’s April 2nd here. You crazy behind-the-times Americans…

    There’s a large ambiguously-gendered odd-eyed slightly-intimidating animal-like thing that is quietly creeping up your sweaty mostly-meaty shoulder-blades to insert its’ green-coloured poison-dripping bad-smelling fang-like teeth into your extremely-scared skin.

    Happy April Fools!

    My two turnips,

    Lol, unencyclopedia and wikipedia switched front pages. Happy April Fools day!

  11. Mordaedil says:

    For some reason, this day was entirely uneventful to me.

  12. Owen says:

    Ugh. When I’m ruler of the world April will have 29 days, starting from the 2nd!

  13. some kid says:

    I don’t acknowledge April Fools day.

    Ah. Google Paper. That would’ve been awesome. Heheh. Meanwhile, in a sad unrelated to April Fool’s day incident, I’m stranded in the location of my vacation. What fun!

  17. LethalSpoon says:

    I don’t know if any of you use xFire, but yesterday they decided to “change” the names of a bunch of the games everyone plays. For example: The most played game of the week was VirtualKnitter (World of Warcraft).

  18. Miral says:

    Of course you realise that your title-flipping code had a minor bug and reversed the markup too? So for a while there your titles were displaying such things as ;tg& and >/rb

  19. Miral says:

    … and the rest of my comment got cut off because apparently these comments have active HTML. Bah. So:

    … such this as ;tg& and >/rb< :)

    (I nitpick, therefore I am.)
