Hello World!

I don’t know about you but I’ve already pulled out the industrial strength lie-detector and special hoax-retardant amour for April Fools day. While this may seem a bit premature, it’s worth noting that the first falls on a Sunday this year and, for many major news sites, not to mention other places, this is a day off – some, at least, will be looking to make up for this by having their fun today or Monday. And more power to ‘em, I say. However, I can say, with honesty (unless my dear co-editor is holding out on me, in which case he will shortly be an ex co-editor) that we won’t be running any pranks on TrekToday ourselves, despite my express desire to Sweedish Chef the site for the day, or at least Klingon it. No, we’ll be good and only print hoaxes other people have done. It’s a bugger, but there you are.

Speaking once more of the Sweedish Chef: did you know that you can actually run a Google search in the ‘language’? I certainly didn’t, at least, not until I read about it yesterday at Slashdot. You can even set your search so it’ll automatically display retrieved pages in ‘ Bork, bork bork!’ This has obviously been designed for people like me by people like me who have nothing better to do with their time and a strange love of the Muppets, but it’s a nice and more amusing alternative than altavista’s Bable fish. Bork Bork Bork! :D
