Cool stuff!
According to my browser, it saves your visit in a cookie named aprilsfool2007. That's why you are not directed second+ time you tune in.

I'd like to compliment you for your creativity. It's nice to see an aprils fool joke that's not outright ridiculus, but actually is believable (also showing us all that we are in fact very optimistic towards LBA3 and the like. Nice for keeping our spirits up, to think about, I figure). Also I think it nice that you've actually made some neat graphics for the purpose.

Yet I don't understand the massive amount of HTML-code used, seeing to the fact that such a simple page would require much less.

But: thank you.

Happy Aprils Fool Day everyone

PS. How did you make it look like Fred himself had registered the domain?

No, ludoid.fr is real, it's no joke and I didn't make it. I just used the graphics from that page for the joke.

There's also the .com domain.
And the logo is indeed nice, I think Yaël Barroz did it.

1. Ludoid is, as read in Axx's last email, not a company already. The name "Ludoid" is free for use.
2. Would Fred mind?

If we were never to violate stupid copyrights laws, the world would become a global police state.

Not really. I'm using it as a spoof and not abusing it, so it's fair use. And no harm is done/intended. There is no commercial incentive.

And before the lawyers have been alerted it's gone.
