Nice April Fools Joke

by flyingmoose (Priest)
on Apr 01, 2004 at 03:33 UTC ( #341495=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

What time zone does PerlMonks live in, BTW? It's still 3/31 in Eastern Standard Time, kinda freaked me out with April Fools coming early :)

And no, if you haven't noticed yet, I'm not going to explain it. Good job vroom et al :)

    Check the "Tick tock" nodelet, then try and guess. This is what I see in mine

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    PM lives in EST5EDT -- the US eastern timezone, including daylight savings time changes. You saw april fools come early because your timezone is set incorrectly (to GMT, suggesting that you never changed it). Go to timezone settings to correct that.

    It is important to define midday since any April fools jokes played after twelve o'clock make a fool out of the perpetrator. Watch out vroom!
