Dead Serious About April Fools

April 01, 2008 – Comments (7)

I was just thinking here, all day I could not tell if something was serious or if it was April Fools.

It was nothing like the morning I awoke to a radio show talking to flying the spruce goose on the touring trip it was starting in Vancouver.  I am sure the crimson from embarassement made my skin glow a week.  The google toilet last year was good.  But, the stock market April Fools jokes I seriously could not tell.  

It says something when the markets are so screwed up and you read something and can't tell if it is for real or a joke...

I thought the Virgle announcement today was pretty good.  The website is really impressive. 

I thought the Free Google Wireless announcement was a little lame, until I clicked on the get started now link. 

There were just so many I saw today.

LordZ, GFIG split 4:1 yestersday.  The split should be processed in CAPS no later than today, and all picks will be updated.  Usually we process splits on the day that they occur, but occasionally there's a small delay. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It was fixed so the start and end were at the before the stock split price when LordZ was making a second complaint all over the place.  So now both read after the stock split price instead of both reading before.  

It would be nice if it caps could be fixed so they are both adjusted at the same time.
