Damn. Forgot that. Yes, sorry, it's an April Fools' joke. Thanks, Alex, for helping out. The recent outage (now fixed, let's hope) is unconnected, btw.

What a pity. I had been assuming for a while that nickb was a code for 'nickname b' (where pg was 'nickname a').

Personally I think it would have been funnier if it was rms or someone else slightly more controversial :) Before I realised it was a joke I just couldn't understand where you found the time submit so many articles.

pg!!! you admitted it too early!

Nice joke though :)
