Saw this one and knew what the date was ... not foolish enough to be conned by something like this ... but I reckon lots of people would have been. I reckon that I have seen many April Fool's jokes in my life so tend to be careful ... and more so with the internet. It can be late on the 1st April here in Australia but still the start of the same date elsewhere in the world. So, with internet things I take no notice till after the 1st April has ended everywhere in the world ... I mean till it is at least the 2nd April everywhere in the world. I bet a lot of people fell for this one ... something for free ... broadband and all that it entails ... would definately have appealed to lots of people all over the world. Did you fall for it at all I wonder ... or were you quick enough to realise that it was an April Fool's Joke being pulled by one of the biggest sites on the internet.
