I wonder if it made a difference which pic they got...I got the "Who Dat?" one and I recognised Jessica, but there was one that said something like...I`m in your machine looking for bugs lol

I know this is sort of off-topic .. and I apologise .. but I have GOT to share it.

Years ago I got a panicked phone call from a co-worker begging me to come over and fix his computer. When I asked what happened, he explained ...

He'd been cruising around, following links and generally exploring .. when he came to a web page that expanded the browser window to full screen and said in giant flashing letters "WE HAVE HACKED YOUR COMPUTER! WE OWN YOU!"

He immediately powered off ... waited a bit .. then fired it up again. Even though everything seemed okay and his Virus Scanner didn't report anything, he began deleting files that had dates of that day. He found them ALL over his hard drive .. in some very scary places too. By the time he finally gave up, he'd lobotomized Windows and most of his applications.

Anyone wanna guess what day of the year that was? ROFLMAO!!

Anyone remember a few years back when LL had a sense of humour? ...One April 1st they messed with all the little messages inworld, like when you are TPing and it says *contacting region" etc they changed them all to some hilarious stuff, people get so used to not reading those messages that it it took all day for some to even notice :D

too bad I would've completely missed it if I hadn't seen this thread, since I use a login shortcut that skips that screen.

'I'm in ur viewer, fixing ur bugs'

Very disappointed that this was a joke :smileysad:. I started clapping when I saw it. I wanted her to get rid of those stars in the sky, and the way my whole system freezes whenever I try to trash mutiple items, forcing me to reboot.

I love phoenix but.....if only that cute little girl would fix my bugs.:smileytongue:

FWIW, I think that was the last April Fool's prank LL will ever pull. A lot of people got inordinately upset by those, and yelled about LL wasting resources with silly TP messages versus "fix the lag" and stuff.

I s'pect they still have a sense of humor (This pretty much confirms that), but they cant much show it without people being upset. :-/

doing better than me then, I thought I had a new job right up until the 15kWPM requirement ( v7 Neural inputs are capped at ~10k)

considering Emeralds history you would think they wouldn't go playing around with folks program or computer...certainly not remind people that they are in your computer...Guess they haven't learned yet..

I agree completely Mari - I'm not an LL 'fangirl' and I complain plenty, but it always does occur to me that whatever LL does they get hammered by people who just can't see right in whatever they do. I would put RL money on it that if LL had done what Phoenix did they would now be barraged under complaints and talks of RL courts.

LL can never do right - TPVs it seems can do all sorts and be forgiven because they are not 'official' - isn't it a funny old world when how we see things isn't about if it's fun or good - but rather from what source it came.

Just my ponderings for this week - sometimes I find it hard to understand people - even though I am one.

Cheers all - happy weekend. :smileyhappy:
