Well, I didn't think it was just a plain calander. I thought they were optimizing their search results with dates or something. And I thought they named it Romance cuz it would be their way of "loving" the internet. It never crossed my mind at that moment that Google would extend their services into (bogus) online dating. O well, I'm weird.

Open office.org being sold to M$: I was soooo scared!!!! I was just about to remove OOo and install Koffice when I noticed it was an april fools joke.

And thinkgeek....
The one that got me was the WEC and iZilla. I wasn't interested in the caffeine inhaler cause it didn't sound healthy (breathing caffeine? Common!)

My sis froze my stinking toothbrush and short-sheeted my Dad's bed. I made 13 windows reboot errors come up on my mom's computer and told my dad that I bought Gas for the motorcycle when I was out riding with a friend.

All in all it was a pretty good April 1.

Trust me, there will be one, the RTS Starcraft one is already popular enough and WoW is doing so well, it would be a no brainer IMO

make a real error, press print screen, paste in paint, cut the error box out of the picture you pasted, then take the wallpaper on the desktop and make a backup copy of it, edit the wallpaper in paint, paste the error box and you're done

I just wrote one that sounded real and then wrote a GUI python script to show it. Most everyone will obey the Windows. Even I will! (Which is one of the reasons why I hate it)

lol you learn Win32 programming and make a message box that has the error... then you take a shortcut to a much used program and change the link to your error program... so when somebody clicks it it pops the error..
