  1. Congratulations on your splendid April Fools joke. You really, really had me. Luckily this wasn’t a production machine, but a testing system – but I was afraid to lose all my backups resting here…

    We had a good laugh over it, thank you.

    1. Glad you liked it!

      It seemed like a cracker had tinkered with SG2D repo, isn’t it ? 😉

      The good thing about the joke is you do not need to download another disk (as per 0.9800 if you actually wanted SGD and not SG2D) but just wait for the AF day to end so that the message no longer appears.
