April Fools


(Aaron Willett) #1

Any of you do some fun April Fools jokes on your company?

Here’s mine for 2019:

In the EpiNotification event of certain forms, I have a random integer between 0 and 20 generated.
If that number is equal to 3, it will play the Wilhelm Scream sound bite. :slight_smile:

The best part is I’m deploying it now and part of the if-statement is going to check for the date.
It’s very likely I’ll forget about it come April Fools and then start getting tickets about “My Epicor is screaming at me!”. :smiley:

I’m glad your company has a sense of humor :joy:

Speaking of the Wilhelm scream, if you like podcasts, here’s a pretty good one talking about the history of the scream. Once you’ve heard it, you can’t not pick it out.

In a prior life a coworker styled an admin form with the most Gawd Awful orange, brown, green, black color theme for halloween. (if date = October).
Then we shipped it.

LOL–Easter eggs in a shipped product. Beautiful!

(Any of those built into Epicor? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:)

Nothing I know of in anything Epicor. That was at a dotBomb where I had a cup of coffee.
