ethic

Is that really ethical to make an open source casino to fund such a project ? Look like a big joke to me ... same level that microsoft marketing ads.

Not 1st April anymore

This is one problem with the Internet that printed media doesn't have. In the Internet, April Fools Day stories may circulate for a long time afterwards, although people are not expecting them after the first of April. It would be good, if those who submit these stories afterwards, would mention that the story is an April Fools' joke. The original ones might be marked the day after too. Many of the fake stories are easy to detect (as they should be - at least in the media that one is supposed to take seriously) but some times you just can't tell. So many suprising, unlikely or even strange things happen in the world today, that it's often no wonder if one falls for an April Fools' joke told days later. In many countries you are not expected to tell an April Fools' joke after the noon, or you will be called an "April Fool". Perhaps this, applied to the whole day, should be a practice elsewhere.
