Man, some of you are pretty gullible!
Congratulations to everyone who recognized yesterday’s blog post for what it was (given the date of the post).
I’d closed off comments before posting so that I’d catch them all in a moderator trap so no one spoiled it too early.
(I’m going to release them now.. the prior post is here, and the now-approved comments are here).
For those of you who don’t know me personally, I suppose I can understand you falling for it, although I thought the bit about melting the 106 pieces that I spent months printing into a “melted sculpture of failure” was enough of a giveaway (as was the specific date calculation hint).. Sorry to all of you who thought there were parts to scavenge.
As to the roughly 50% of you that do know me that also believed it, whoa! (extends hand for handshake).. Jeff Keegan.. Nice to meet you.. Hello? All I’ve talked about for 6+ months was RepRap! I think I talk about RepRap more than I talk about Lost!! Thanks for believing I’d quit! LOL
If so many of you weren’t so concerned, I’d have omitted this post and let you all figure it out on your own.. I like my humor nice and dry. But especially with there being so many people on the rss aggregate feeds reading this that don’t know me and my personality, I suppose I owe you the smiley face at the end.
Here’s my illustrative comment: I’d probably stop using my TiVos before I quit my RepRap project.
Always check the date of articles that you read in the spring, lest you be fooled.
p.s. Somehow, I even managed to fool my wife, who couldn’t believe what she was hearing. I practically bit through my tongue on the phone trying to keep from laughing. So the rest of you, don’t feel too bad, but still..
p.p.s. Progress is coming along nicely!
