April Fools!

Hah! I tricked you into clicking the link, and I will now suck out your soul!!! MUHAHA! Anyway... I really like the robot's antics. Google's "Gmail Custom Time" was funny too. Anywhere else? Gizmondo seems to be using Mr. T in all of their stories...

Desktops of April

Well, I said i was going to try and keep this topic 'idea' going for a few months, see what response I get!Last months was a success, lets hope you all change your set-ups enough to keep this a monthly thing.Today I have my work computer, which i just outfitted with a new background. I will add one of my home system when I get home. The second two images are from my home set up. The Apple one i made myself, the portrait one was a desktop that i refitted to go the other way round, while adding some machinae supremacy lyrics.The Wallpaper was from heylove, the artist has some good design work, and some even better photography, so check it out.Running the on the desktop is geek tool, which is in Swiss Thin (i always use swiss at work, as many of the other fonts are turned off and on throughout the day).In the title bar we have Little Snitch, and iStat Menus.Be sure to post your desktop below. If your creative, and your still running the same wallpaper as last month, then you need to change it, right now. Then post it.gmjhowe

April Fools at School

So, I found out that my school doesn't use a standard clock system - instead we have this high-tech radio synced system, and every single clock has an antenna on its back. I was thinking of having some serious fun tomorrow, but that would require me stealing a clock to take home with me - dismantling it, and reverse-engineering it. I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard, but I don't know if I could have done it in one night..... That would have made an awesome April fools joke! There's so much potential! I'll probably end up wearing a Jester hat and my LED t-shirt, though. So much for that fun (perhaps as a senior prank?)

I hate April Fool .......

.I just wanted to say it : I hate April Fool ...............I'm perfectly aware that when it's about humour and jokes, I can be a real retarded kid or a real little rascal (sometimes both at the same time)...For instance, just to give you a sample, when I wrote "I hate April Fool", the "funny hemisphere" of my brain immediately computed a risky (and probably stupid and immature) pun :"I hate April Fool ........ 'cause this girl is a real pain !"Well ...... and paradoxically, despite I find many April Fool jokes funny, I hate this day.Why ?Because :1) every little "unexpected" (and plausible) information seems suspicious.2) some extremely serious persons (teammates or superior) tries to be cool only this day, and become ridiculously serious again the day after ......... and paradoxically, their April Fool sense of humour is as low as their seriousness is high the rest of the year (this is a great source of disappointment to see how stupid can be someone you respected for his/her intelligence).3) I don't remember #3 .... who really care about it anyway ???Voila ...That was my April Fool rant.Wow ! I feel better know !=o]

Coming Soon: April Fools Day Contest

Next week we'll be starting an April Fools Day Contest. So start thinking of some clever ideas for a prank that you'd like to pull on someone else. Prizes will be supplied by ThinkGeek. The only rule is that there has to be something that you make for the prank. Any idea that you have for the prank needs to be fleshed out as your own project with original photos. Pictures of the prank being pulled are even better! More details about the contest and prizes to be announced later this week. UPDATE: The contest page is here.

Have you ever had a microwave oven talk to you before? Answered

Mine likes to say, "Hi." A picture of this is attached.  There is indicator light that says, "Hi." When my microwave says, "Hi" to me, I say, "Hello! Hello microwave oven! How are you today?" And it just keeps saying, "Hi, Hi, Hi," until... it is done cooking. When it's done cooking it makes beeping noise, and then it tells me what time of day it is, and then it acts like a clock, telling me the time of day, and it keeps doing that until when I tell it I want to cook something again. I wish a happy, happy April Fools' Day unto everyone!!!

Hey guys ... i have a problem whenever i try to enter this contest with one of my instructables , it's like "Instructable not published in the april fools' contest , as it's not open for entries" the thing is that it's actually open for entries...as i read on the contest's page...so does anybody have any idea why it doesn't let me participate in the contest ?

The Candy Contest is starting Monday, April 8th!

We're looking for both candy recipes and candy making techniques - we want to see gummies, truffles, caramels, hard candy and more. Think about things you buy in a candy store or at a fancy chocolatier and make them better! Visit the Candy Contest page for more info - and remember not to publish your instructable before the 8th!

Nesting Sparrows Journal

Hello all, Ive got some House Sparrows nesting in my yard, right next to my window. I know their just boring 'ol sparrows, but their still fasinating to study. Anyway, I plan on making a journal of sorts for their nest and such. I hope to be able to update it every other day or so. If you have any questions or comments please ask! I will get a photo as soon As I can. I will keep this up to date as best I can. Thanks! Anyway... April 1st-5th: Sparrows in and out, they seem to like it. April 6th: Sparrows begin filling nest box with straw. April 7-13th: Sparrow stuffing box with straw any hay. Constantly in the yard. April 14th: Frequently in and out of nest box, almost always one bird inside at all times April 15th: Lining of the nest! A number of feathers have been added to the now bowl shaped interior. Male and female always close by. April 16th - 20th: More nest lining, though they seem to be not as active as they were when they were filling the nest box with straw. April 21st: The sparrows have found a liking for plastic packaging, and have added a fair bit to the box. April 22nd: Their plastic taste continues with the addition of a plastic bag. Its getting really cramped inside, though there is a nice bowl shape inside now. April 23rd-26th: Finished lining, the sparrows seem to be spending their down time in a nearby tree, soaking up the sun.
