April fools day...

uhm that time of the year where internet companys/web sites go out of their way to pull a prank.

Google are running with gmail paper. Something about sending your emails through the post. Ha. I still don't think it beats gmail being announced on April fools day. People thought google was joking about it making a web based email public.
Google paper

Then theres this news story from games bid [dot] com:
Principality of Sealand to Bid for 2016 Olympic Games
Posted 12:04 am ET (GamesBids.com)

The Principality of Sealand, a self-proclaimed sovereign state off the coast of Britain will bid for the 2016 Olympic Games, GamesBids.com has learned. The tiny nation was founded in 1967 on an abandoned World War II sea fort by Roy Bates but is now ruled by his son, Michael, also known as Prince Michael of Sealand. The country is basically a large steel platform sitting on two giant concrete pylons.

Hell yeah go sealand! We could all get on boats and watch the olympic swimming.

Then there's the best. Pirate bay claiming to have started a "cooperation" with north Korea. It gets funnier as you read the comments on the blog post. With pirate bay users debating if their communist or not.

Finally a permanent solution for the hosting.

Today we announce that we're moving some of our servers to the North-Korean Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden.

After lenghty discussions with the leader of North Korea Kim Jong-Il we have decided to start a cooperation.

Some of the reasons are the extremely good bandwidth agreement we get - redundant fibre links, redundant power with diesel to last for four years makes the colocation a very good deal for us.
