April Fools’ Prank on my CTO

Today the development team decided to make the CTO freak out. Here is what we did to the application currently in development:

  • Play the Skype ringing tone in a loop
  • Prevent important data from loading
  • Hide the CLI after 1/2 second (long enough to see it appear)
  • On the 3rd run, display a fake Confickr C popup that seems like it’s uploading financial data, with a nice progress bar and all
The effect exceeded our expectations. Everybody had a good laugh at the end.
