Well, I was just wondering what it could do to Ubuntu users and what we can do to prevent it.

There is of course the acquisition of The Pirate Bay by Warner Brothers


Warner Brothers Inc. announced today that it has agreed to acquire The Pirate Bay, the consumer media company for people to share original copies through a Web experience, for $13.37 billion in a stock-for-stock transaction. Following the acquisition, The Pirate Bay will operate independently to preserve its successful brand and passionate community...

I was thinking along the lines of personal jokes when I saw the topic.
One year we bought a kiddie pool and told everyone that we had gotten a huge above-ground pool and were having a pool party. We had primed them for a couple of weeks before. Everyone arrived with their bathing suits, towels, and changes of clothes. No one suspected it was an April fools joke but we did end up having a lot of fun that day and into the night nonetheless.

Bl**dy brilliant, can't wait 'til the weekend when they release it to the public. I see it was created using DENNIS, I'm pretty sure I heard they're also working on some new technology called CAPPER, it looks flash but doesn't do much.

The above quote is strange, I hit the quote button and these other lines with the extra URLs turns up???

Anyhow, I liked the shirt

And thank goodness it ain't April first any more where I am.

Edit: WTF? I swear when I first read that post it only contained the first URL and the "brave man" quote.

Bottom right corner of the page, change -cleanv2af to -cleanv2 and that should fix it.
