Re: April fools joke

No Strat you weren't......I was sitting there watching, thinking to myself ahhhh and oooohhhh isn't it wonderful....it wasn't until it said that they flew to South America that it clicked there may be something wrong  Embarrassed  Then put it together with Terry Jones and thought yes, its April 1st !!!!
Brilliant clip though - they've since put another clip on about how it was made - technology is a marvellous thing Smiley

Thats right - it was just a joke Wink

Ooop's, then I must stand up and admit to being fooled.
Nice one PlusNet
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Now, this might just be me... but i think the photo on the blog *was* taken outside PN... for the following reason...
If you drag the file into photoshop, and mess with the levels, you can read the plusnet sign on the door!

Re: April fools joke

Thanks PJ.... I was going to put a link in for him to access the font in case he did not have it....
As for posting in capitals.... I don`t think the font works in small letters.  Some fonts will only work when used in the capital letter form..... For example  HourPhoto as used on my heading on my website. Others that spring to minde are    Jungle Leaves, and Pleasantly Plump... Cheesy Wink
