Of all the practical jokes on April Fool’s Day, only one actually got me. Yes, Ronald Bradford’s post yesterday describing a visa situation and having to return to Australia actually got me looking up immigration attorney numbers in the US that could help as well as emailing him my heartfelt sympathy about his situation. I even started planning for who might replace him at the MySQL Conference, as it sounded like he was not going to be there.
In response to my email, he wrote back:
April Fools Dude!
to which I wrote back:
Oh, you totally suck.
So, Ronald, you have the dubious honour of duping me (among others, I see). Congrats! 🙂
