My Least Favorite Day of the Year


I’m an honest person.  I value truth, sincerity, and candor.  I appreciate people who are honest with me and honest with others.  And I’m pretty sure that most people in this world feel the same way.  Why is it, then, that it’s considered acceptable by the masses for all of that to be thrown out the window and trampled every 1st of April?


This is my least favorite day of the year.

    It’s a little gift to you, Stephen.  You can sleep in today and skip blogging.  Honest.

    I agree, but for a different reason.  My major complaint is that most of the April Fool’s jokes that you see are lame.

    The ones that you see on slashdot are the worst of the crop.

    Hi Stephen,

    Apologies for commenting on the wrong post but I noticed an issue with msdn.microsoft.com/…/cc163716.aspx and couldn't see an obvious way to contact you.

    in "Figure 1 RuntimeHelpers.PrepareConstrainedRegions" (and many other samples), line breaks seem to have been lost.

    Hope this helps and thanks for the posts
