Yes it’s April 1st, also known as April Fools Day. It is a day when the commission of practical jokes and hoaxes is accepted among most people who have a sense of humor. But on this day, it is next to impossible to try to blog about stuff since most of the news articles may or may not be a hoax.

This morning I say articles being written about Microsoft finally buying Yahoo. Then one about Google buying a company that doesn’t exist. Another story said that the Chinese must approve the Microsoft-Yahoo deal along with the EU and others. I even read that Microsoft has finally convinced 86% of people that it’s new standard dubbed XXML or something similar and that these folks were forced into it.

The one bad thing about April Fools jokes is that they are dependent on the gullible in order to be successful. With this in mind, I think it is a good day to hide out and do as few posts as possible in an attempt to not embarrass myself.

On a non-April Fools joke day, I did receive one piece of good news. Microsoft was generous enough to select me once again as a MVP for the 5th year in a row. NO JOKE! REALLY!

Have a good day.

Comments welcome.
