that April fools hoaxes were only valid on April 1st?

Only until midday

Yes, I know that, but I was referring to jokes that appear the day before - I don't see the point of them.

Not being able to tale life seriously at the age of 25 I proposed to Fran - my lovely wife - stipulating that we got married April 1st, not for one minute thinking she would take me seriously!

Tomorrow will be 34 years and I NEVER ever forget our wedding anniversary :o)

As it was a Press release, it could be that the company's PR firm anticipated possible publication on April 1st.

I did spot one on Saturday - after installing the new version of Avast! I checked the About Avast! link in its Settings.

According to this, the new build is: Apr2008 (4.8.1169)

I've heard simonjary's taking over as FE soon, so doubt he'll mind much.

4 hours and 11 minutes too soon with that one.

Obviously everyone on this site's far too intelligent. Ah well.

Brumas - I also got married on April 1st. It was Easter Saturday 36 years ago and as you say you cannot forget.
