    Its funny how every year I think Wizz can't get me this time, and even when I know its April Fool's day, he comes up with something so ingenious, he scares me every time.

    For a minute I was like, OMG, What the hell did TPU do??? WHYY???????????????????????

    Took me a minute to realize....

    The funny thing was that it spread through the internet tech forums like wildfire.
    A lot of people were pissed when they realized they were duped. :laugh:

    Given that the Megaupload takedown was still in the back of peoples' minds, the sometimes overzealous actions of our Feds to take down .com sites, the fact warez are discussed here (but not linked) and the fact most people don't realize the date first thing when they hit the webz .. it had some credibility .. even though short lived for most.

    I think it was superbly executed by our fearless leader. Well done, Bossman. :toast:
