    So, tomorrow is the day we all love .. what do you all have planned?

    So, tomorrow is April Fools Day, the Technical Support's chance to get their own back on the lowly users ..

    My question is, what have you all got planned (if anything).

    At one of my schools, it's also the head teachers last day .. so I think a simple screen rotation first off, but from there .. who knows .. maybe have the CD tray auto eject randomly during the day?

    My head would be for the chop if I did any 'Fools-based pranks here, so aside from enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of a training day and running a SIMS/FMS upgrade in the afternoon, it'll be a ordinary, dull, paperwork-based day I reckon.

    Nothing. I don't tend to do anything on April Fools Day. No one's here for a start. Lol.
    I might do something immature and turn the website upside down.

    Maybe this one?

    I suspect one of the senior staff will get their default web site changed to the naughty page.

    EDIT: An the PFY will get a special GPO so where ever he goes his wallpaper will show delightful knitwear.
