  • ¿¿Easter Eggs??

    I know it is the month for Halloween and not Easter but I just got to thinking that people put Easter Eggs in their software and DVDs all the time. Have any of you put an easter egg on your CD as a joke of some sort? Is that too personal of a question? Too late I already asked it.

    Something like this (first thing that came to mind and sparked this post)

    If (%date% = Halloween)
    Page.ShowObject ("access to secret page")

    -OR-

    IF (%date% = Halloween)
    MP3.Load (scary song)
    MP3.Play

    Obviously these are time based eggs but I thought it mike be kinda fun. Probably would make a client mad if they saw it. Maybe Christmas would be better since who would work and play a CD on x-mas. Time based is alwo probably easy to prevent someone for accidently seeing it unless they are specifically looking for it.

    No. I almost did the very same thing with a Real Estate client. I was told that the company was coming up to it's 10th 'birthday' and I thought about putting in a 'Happy Birthday' message, but decided against it. I haven't mentioned it to the them, so I dont know what their reaction would be.

      AMS 5.0 will have a few cool ones, or so I believe...

            YES, sort of.
            I put a Short Cut to the installers on the CD.
            We produce a CD with instructions and software on it for our Students and Staff. So for those that use it to install the applications in Labs, Offices, etc.. I put a shortcut on the first page that jumps to the installation page. Saves them time.

              Almost have many times but never have in the true sense of the term "Easter Egg"

              What I have done are mostly hidden hotspots that shortcut to places or installs.

              For fun I'll leak that they exist to our Quality Assurance group to see if they can find them.

              I'd also provide the info to our tech support group so they can shortcut around the program to help the helpless.
