Just an Idea...
« on: April 04, 2009, 12:39:43 PM »
Ok, April 1st has come and gone, but I was thinking...we have a whole year to plan out the next one. Perhaps SCN should organize a fairly large scale prank of some sort...something big.

I like the prank that Google pulled. It was pretty hilarious.

The last time we did something for April's fools there was a lot of complaining.  (We changed the color scheme and logo to be Mirror Universe style and a few people complained a lot about the colors)

I can't remember, was that the time the colors were all pink and hideous?  Or was that Valentine's Day '08?

Either way, that didn't go over well because the colors tended to burn peoples' retinas.
The battle of modern programming is one waged between the engineers trying to craft a bigger,better idiot-proof program and the universe trying to breed bigger, better idiots.  So far, the universe is winning.

Yeah that was it.  The colors were red and pink.
