    Today is April 1, 2007 and represents April Fool's Day -- so readers should be wary of hoaxes and claims at both news and rumor sites today.

    Today also represents Apple's 31st Anniversary. Last year's April Fools' was met with much of anticipation. Many were certain that Apple would celebrate their 30th anniversary with some form of announcement. No announcements were made.

    Enjoy the day!

    Cannot wait for the headline stating that John Dvorak is pregnant with his own clone.

    In essentially honor of April Fools' Day, I will partially promise that I shall not post any exceptionally bogus claims about things that I may or may not be hyperactively aware of at Apple.

    With the singularly wonderful exception of the $799 BlackBook. Excuse me, there's an alarmingly loud pounding at the door.

    *Apple Legal dragging me away*

    I love you all,

    Practically John

    Sorry for the inconvenience today.

    We had three choices:
    1. Make sure everyone sees the new forum look.
    2. Let the people who prefer small fonts miss the new look completely, since they wouldn't know about it unless someone told them to switch styles.
    3. Do twice as much work, to create twice as many new styles.
    Since it took us 365 days to prepare this one, we went with choice #1. :)

    Wow, can't believe a year has gone by already!

    I already set up a joke for my coworker in the morning. She'll probably get scared in the morning when she opens up the office. heh.

    I just noticed the extra tab. Funny stuff, nice work!! But I can't believe this already has negative ratings. WTH?

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I love it!

    Astounding Erasmus... That's right. I am surprisingly impressive or notable!

    And I do tend to shock and greatly surprise people.

    (Yes, I did use the dictionary in Dashboard ;-)
