    Since I will be out of town tomorrow on April 1st, I am publishing tomorrow's hottest news headlines today!

    I am posting this in the general forum so it gets more play. Add all the April Fools jokes and spoofs you find while I'm gone.

    Rumors are running rampant that Jeff Molander penned this new tell-all book and lets you peek under his kimono. (Is he still wearing pink boxers?) Note if you mouse over the link you will see its a REAL Press Release. I am not playing an April Fools joke on anyone. It's at PRweb so it must be real! See for yourself! <strong><a target="_new" href="http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/3/prweb365401.htm">Former Affiliate Network Exec Tells All in New Book: The Affiliate Code</a></strong> According to the press release for The Affiliate Code, the author (who remaims anonymous) is one of the main characters, "a graduate of an Ivy League University (who) spent more than nine years as an executive of an affiliate network. After spending most of his career at the affiliate network, he recently retired, and now he is ready to lift the kimono." <strong>The picture on the cover does not look like Jeff though. Can anyone guess who it really is??? </strong> ;-)

    It appears that 180solutions, everyone's favorite Adware company has cleaned house - literally! Offices empty, site down! <strong><a target="_new" href="http://www.adotas.com/2006/03/180solutions-cleans-house/">180Solutions Cleans House ? Adotas</a></strong> "ADOTAS has learned that adware company 180Solutions has cleaned out its Bellevue, MA headquarters and a source close to the company tells us its other offices are to follow. The company, which as of late has lost clients like AzoogleAds and has been under fire with a formal complaint by the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), has, according to the source, left their offices completely empty save a maid service which the company apparently hired to ?clean up their act?."

    <strong><a target="_new" href="http://www.adotas.com/2006/03/google-adwords-unveils-two-new-image-sizes/">Google AdWords Unveils Two New Image Sizes ? Adotas </a></strong> "Yesterday Google?s AdWords team announced they had been testing two new image ad formats. The first, a large 2560 x 1920 image is designed for advertisers who want to appear ?larger than life?... The second format, a 1 x 1 pixel ad can be purchased in blocks of ten by keyword."

    Sneak peak at Googles newest project. Rumors have it this new search offering will be available in April. A new search technology is unveiled. <strong><a target="_new" href="http://www.undergoos.com/">UnderGoos.com</a></strong>

    A secret document was uncovered today that many SEOs believe Google did not want the public to see. <strong>It uncovers the actual algo Google uses to determine PR. <a href="http://www.google.com/technology/pigeonrank.html">Google PR Technology</a></strong> "How exactly does Google manage to find the right results for every query as quickly as it does? The heart of Google's search technology is PR?, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University."

    <strong>Stay tuned to the 5 Star Channel for more HOT April Fools news. I will add it as I find it! :D

    I drive my members insane every year for April Fools Day, er month, on my vBulletin boards.

    There mostly teenager video game freaks, and guys, so I change the background to pink, post pictures of me all over the place, make it so they have no idea who's posting, censor the letter e, make them get a fart sound when they load a page and so on....This year I'll make every member be a Super mod for a day (With no mass pruning power.)...after backing-up!!! I'll be late with AFD this year, and try to start it when they think I'll do nothing. Last year it lasted for a complete month!!! I even pretended to sell the site and leave...then showed back-up two weeks later. They don't call me da King of da Wackos for nothing!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

    You got me!

    OK, I'm a victim.
    I actually went to Amazon.com and my public library's website to look for "The Affiliate Code."
    You should probably call me and ask if I have Prince Albert in a can. :p :p :p
