Sometimes I think our British friends need to lighten up.

You know, one of the best ways to do that in London is to call +44 20 7334 3922. There is an excellent SQL Server DBA there called "Mr. Wolf". Call and ask for him.

OK. That's the number of the London Zoo.

While you're at it, his assistant is Anna Conda.

Of course, a much better trick to pull on an American in London is to have him call 0300 123 1212 and ask for "Bobby". If you catch them on a bad day though, the police tend to be a rather unfunny lot. They're even less funny when you use "999".

Seriously though, any nation that can come up with the Spaghetti Trees of Switzerland in 1957 can't be all bad. To me that was the 'Mother of all April Fools'. I guess I can understand high standards in that context.

By the way, sorry about the way your PM got treated by our President while he was over here. I hope he likes his DVDs...

I’d prefer if y’all use a less insultive tones, it’s true, from time to time, arguments different from those that’s supposed to be treated in this forum , could help in rousing morals, but being that we’re in a globalized point (sql central) your sense of humor might not always sound good, to some other persons, the other side of the globe. So, pull your breaks where you can. Long live CENTRAT !!!

Well, so far today I've had red milk on my cereal, tape on the toilet paper roll (yes, we have a teenager in the house), Steve Jones moving to mySql and now an Easter egg in Sql 2008. By the way, did you hear that Oracle is acquiring Sun and they're both being acquired by Google!

You gotta love April Fool's.

About 13 years ago the internet was not as developed as it is today, and there were a lot of myths about it. I remember getting an email saying that internet has to be cleaned of all emails and files that were sent to a none existing electronic addresses and are traveling through the internet trying to get somewhere. Those files and emails were “plugging” the internet and had to be deleted. According to the email we all needed to log off the internet. The mail had some nice touch as it explained that Toshiba created powerful robots (it even gave those robots name that included some dashes and number to make it sound real) that will travel through the internet and will delete anything that it will find in its way. If you won’t log off your whole hard disk might be deleted. One of the guys that got this email believed it and got very upset. He sent all of us mail claiming that it isn’t legal and that he recommends that we’ll sue Toshiba in case that something will happen to any of the computers. Someone else answered his mail explaining him that this was April fool’s joke. I liked the answer because at the end of it he warned the guy to keep the computer as far away as possible from any toster
