I checked the homepage after reading the layout post and was running back here at godspeed to tell you that you broke the site.

Well. I did the most stupidest thing. As soon as the page loaded I kept on scrolling downwards. So I couldn't see the April Fool's message. Then what I did is - I pressed - Ctrl + Alt + Delete + Down Arrow. Only, so that I could view the site normally. Then just like Evoz I ran back into the Website suggestions and problems section to report it. But as soon as I clicked it I saw this topic and got to know it was a joke.

Really, you managed to fool me. :P

A message box appears at the top of the page after 3 seconds, with a link to click to get it back to normal. Just in case you missed it :P

I noticed the message later though, as I had stated in my post......quoted above. But still was I the only one who was fooled ? :P

Ah you should do it to the forums next time! My bookmark is set to the forums so I don't really have much need to visit the homepage.

I thought the point of a good joke was to not explain it. :P

Eh,I also thought the site was messed up. Tried reading the posts upside down for a sec. than remebered it was April 1. 2nd time I've been fooled today... For those who are curious I was told "cant belive someone managed to write gullible on the ceiling". It actually works and the look they make when they tilt their heads up and squint is priceless.

Who told you it works only with Intel Graphics cards ? I have tried it on nvidia and ATI graphics cards too...and it works. :)
Also I checked early in the morning. At around 9:00pm. Was kind of sleepy. So I didn't remember it. :P
