    Muahahahahaha
    That's real Fool's day commitment! I just wouldn't have the energy to go round and change all our projectors!

    Now if you were "evil" you would have stuck a video clip of the lottery in Sony Vegas and edited it so the correct numbers came out and then sent it to them! I would ROFL at that!

    It's that time again!

    As many of you know, each year the Internet must be shut down for 24 hours in order to allow us to clean it. The cleaning process, which
    eliminates dead email and inactive ftp, www and gopher sites, allows for a better-working and faster Internet.

    This year, the cleaning process will take place from 07:00 a.m. GMT on
    Apr. 2st until 07:00 a.m. GMT on April 3st. During that 24-hour period, five powerful Internet-crawling robots situated around the world will search the Internet and delete any data that they find.

    In order to protect your valuable data from deletion we ask that you do the following:

    1. Disconnect all terminals and local area networks from their Internet
    connections.

    2. Shut down all Internet servers, or disconnect them from the Internet.

    3. Disconnect all disks and hardrives from any connections to the Internet.

    4. Refrain from connecting any computer to the Internet in any way.

    We understand the inconvenience that this may cause some Internet
    users, and we apologize. However, we are certain that any
    inconveniences will be more than made up for by the increased speed and efficiency of the Internet, once it has been cleared of electronic flotsam and jetsam. We thank you for your cooperation.

    Kim Dereksen
    Interconnected Network Maintenance staff
    Main branch, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

    Sysops and others: Since the last Internet cleaning, the number of
    Internet users has grown dramatically. Please assist us in alerting
    the public of the upcoming Internet cleaning by posting this message
    where your users will be able to read it. Please pass this message on to
    other sysops and Internet users as well. Thank you.

    just been around and stuck the voice command notices on the majority of our copiers and printers :P
    Looked into this before and I believe they don't have the PJL stuff onboard so you can't force messages sadly. Everything above them (range wise) does though.

    I'm impressed by some of the commitment here!

    This was ALL done last night whilst the school production was on.

    I also have now had 3 people saying they cant get the photocopier to understand their voice / its not working with the voice. I told them to speak SLOW, LOUD and CLEAR so that it can understand the request. If after 5 minutes it hasn't done anything, use it the old way.
